Nothing exciting to report but I'm still at it.  I got some good garage time today at least.  I cleaned up a ton of chassis hardware on the wire wheel.  I also cleaned, sanded and cleared the rear sprocket carrier for the KZ1000 mags.  Next is a bit more frame cleanup.

Re-starting on the rearset fab.  I had an extra Brembo rear master cylinder from the YZF and what do you know, it bolts on like it was made for the old KZ.

Not sure on the bore size, the rear is always a single disc so I'm going to give it a go.  I don't have the number for the caliper piston size handy either.   I'll look them up.

If you need, I have a spare one Doc.

sometimes the bore size is stamped in the body of the casting. I am still undecided on the rear caliper i want to use and that will dictate the bore size I need. I think the stock KZ MC is 5/8ths. most newer bikes use small single piston rear calipers and need a much smaller MC. but like you said, try it and see how it works.

Here is the closeup of the rear master.  I'm using a very similar rear caliper to yours, mine is off a kz1000.

J-Rod is making me up some folding rearsets so I started on a template that fits both sides of the bike.     Once I get the mounting holes where I want them I'll clean up the design a bit.

Hey I just got a set from him for the DS7 and they look good. You'll be happy.

Got them last night, they look great!


So....I made some turn signals.....I found these large funky dice drilled them out to clear epoxy these neat little LED's into.    What do you think?

Just be sure to engrave dot approved on them bad boys.
