Hi again, as I told in two posts ago, I´m updating the blog . Here one of my pending tasks finally done. Mount the FZ1 handlebar on my MT-01. I bought it in March of 2012!! Because I wanted reduce the height of the bar mounts, I did not used de FZ1 bar mounts 22.2mm/7/8" (stock MT-01 handlebar-bar mounts 25.4mm/1inch.) instead them I bought a set of Renthal dirt bike bar mounts. But this ones are made to allow oversized 1 1/8” handlebars. I must to mount a couple of bushings reducers from 1 1/8" to 7/8" (click on thumbnail above to enlarge).
As usual I sketched all parts before model them in 3d with Solidworks. In fact, this was the last thing I do with it, now for job reasons I´m working with NX8.5/NX9.
Parts ready to be mounted. I sent the drawing of the bushings to Umesal, a machining workshop, that made them to me. Thanks Carlos for the favor.
...the complete assembly...
...sawing in half...
Goodbye stock handlebar!! From the beginning I wanted to change it, I do not like the riding position on the bike and I wanted to load more weight on the front wheel. I should have done a long time ago....
Renthal VS Stock. Lower and forward. Also I bought the bar mounts with 5mm offset mounted forward. The change riding it´s huge. To mount the Renthal bar mounts (M10) on the top yoke (Hole for M12) are needed two bushings more Ø12/Ø10 (not sketched and I forget make a photo).
...work in progress..
After some trials, I found the right re-routing of the throttle cables, brake hoses...to mount the FZ1 handlebar.
Before and after. Next victims....the mirrors.
