That looks like a good position. Not too far back.
Thanks. I think next is making mount plates from 3/8" plywood for each side to validate the setup and come up with what I need to either make or have them made.

I wish I could tuck the rear sets in where they are zip tied now. There just is not enough swing arm clearance.

Eliminate the heel guard mumbo jumbo and attach to the frame. Done.
If you want a heel guard, go off the tube.
The brake spring and switch are in the way of the swingarm as it sits in that pic. I only need about 1/2 inch more of clearance, what I have in mind for the mounting plate should take care of that. As for the heel guards, hmm, still thinking.

I look forward to seeing that head conversion Beach. I have a login to the new lonesometwins site. I really wished they went with a better forum platform but at least they upgraded and were able to keep alot of content.

As soon as I collect it I'll flag pix up. Yea, the website has been done by the guys that started the site off ...... NOT their day job, but they've put a lot of effort into it.

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?
