Just tell me how lonmg the rod needs to be and at what point along the rod you'd like the bend to be located - I'll do the rest.

Anodizing colors is a bit of a pain: It costs me $55 per batch per color to get stuff done at the anodizing shop. I can do 1 shift rod and it'll be $55 or I can do 200 shift rods and it'll be $55. Bascailly wahtever will fit into a 1.5 cubic foot basket runs $55. And that's for one color only.

I don't anodize at my shop as it's messy and my result (battery charger and Rit dye method) is pretty crappy. $55 ain;t cheap, but their reaults are perfect and very long lasting.

I can polish the rods if anyone wants that done - no charge at all for that.

HEY EARACHE can you turn me a couple of pieces?

Earache,
I'm building a wheel balancer and need the two cones that slide on the 16" * 1/2" shaft. The 1/2" shaft slides through the wheel bearings and then the cones snug upon each side of the wheel to hold it in place. The cones should be 2" long * 1.5" in Dia. with a 1/2" hole through the center. On one end of the cone leave a 3/8" flat spot before you start the taper. Bring the taper down to 9/16 on the other end. That leaves 1/32" on either side of the 1/2" hole through the center. There should also be a set screw drilled & tapped on the 3/8" flat spot to hold the cones to the shaft.

What do you think and about how much would you charge?

Actually I've already built the wheel balancer stand and mounted the bearings so just need the above items.

I've ordered a '99 shift arm. I'll measure the length of the stock rod - which would be the finished length after bending.
From F2Benny's pics, it looks like the bend needs to be pretty close to the upper end so it clears the frame when going up the gears.
Earache, would you send overseas if you make some of these?
Polished finish is fine by me - for the stock appearance not the cost.
thanks,
Roo

Is this what you're looking for? I just PM'd a link to you for it.

Yours is done. I'll wait on your response before I do anymore. Will ship it out tomorrow.

Didn't know if you wanted a Heim joint or not, so I tossed one in. The stockers are probably riveted into place and a bitch to remove with messing up the joint itself.

I'll try to get some of the parts that the rod attaches to done sometime soon. I can probably get them done faster and mde better than the stock R1 Yamaha parts. Just need to get a Yamaha part so I can get the measurements from it.

Yes, of course I'll pay the postage! I just need the bare rod if it's tapped to take the stock fittings.
BTW - how do I pay you - do you take paypal? Mastercard? I have Cookies' card details right here
cheers

I'm away on vacation beginning tomorrow and won't be back in the shop until August 15th. By the time I get back, FastnFurious should have received his rod and let me know if I made any mistakes with it.

The rods are tapped to accept the OEM fittings, so they should bolt right on. The only part I was worried about was the length and the amount / location of the bend.

We'll soon see how it fit.

Why not just penny up and order it from your local dealer? I had mine in three days. We're only talking about a few bucks savings here......

You got lucky. It took over 3 weeks for my local dealer to get one in.

This part seems to be back ordered everywhere.

Looks like the FZ community is running them dry on this part! Mine will be in next week. They said that they are on an even longer backorder but he said mine was slipped in on an order from California that should arrive by Tuesday or Wednesday. By that time I will have Eric's awesome shift rod as well and will bolt it up and let you guys know how it works! I will have some pics as well, of course.

Cool! Look orward to your report FNF.
I'd have thought that wreckers would have trashed R1s coming out their ears.

I'm sold on this Mod. Gotta try it.
Scoose - good adaption to reduce the rubbing. Sorry about your missing pinky finger. Was it "How Not To Oil A Chain (A Bit Graphic)" that did it?
j/k
