  1. Sorry all, I have been very busy(still am, actually). I can get going on the 6th gen parts but I have not been able to make time for figuring out the 5th gen solution. 


    Interested parties can email me at sebspeed2003@yahoo.com, please put "centerstand stop" in the subject title and include your screen name/real name/mailing address in the body and I will respond with my paypal info.

    Are we still having last call this week,  or is maybe Duc's 5th gen design figuring in to this before that  happens?



    I can adapt my design to work for the 5th gen. I need to work out pricing over the 6th gen version for the extra hardware to make a complete kit.

    Is there room above the triple? My SP1 conversion with 954 top triple allowed room for stock VFR1200 clip ons above the triple. Gave me pretty close to stock bar height.


    How much of the clip on are you engaging? (how much are your forks proud of the top of the clamp?)


    I'm drawing custom triples and plan to drop them 19mm from the VFR surface.

    I found the pictures I took of my friends CCS on his 2001. He said he got this from the manufacturer of his exhaust. They supplied the mid-pipe, can and the CCS. It appears to use the CC mounting bolt, I hope these are useful...






    This right here is extremely useful. It lets me see that the planar surface the CS bolt torques down on, is coincident with the leftmost edge of the 5th gen cushion. I can use this info to modify the 6th gen design for 5th gen use. Based on p/n's in my notes below, the 6th gen bolt can replace the 5th gen bolt. Changing the bolt will allow fit of my stop to the 5th gen bike. I'll need to add a block at the front of my stop to engage the 5th gen cushion, or perhaps a bolt with nylon nuts could be used in place of that extra bit... I'll have a think on that. I will also need to include an extra bolt and washer to hold the stop on the 6th gen bolt, as in the 6th gen configuration, the fairing and fairing bolt retain the stop. I could probably source the bolts locally and include them, or everyone could buy their own. Suffice it to say, the cost of the 5th gen stop will be slightly higher than the 6th gen part.

    So, what's the verdict on these?

    I was just thinking about seeing if @SEBSPEED would be able to machine some, but at $16.79 (2020 price) shipped from Hong Kong I'm wondering what kind of volume it would take to compete.

    I couldn't find it anywhere in the parts fiche, but the part# (44808-MR&-013) still calls up the correct plastic part for under $6 (US).


    No self-respecting "first world" job shop can compete with China. I'd make more money working a minimum wage job for a day than trying to make a handful of those for $17, and that's the sad truth. 


    IF someone had an automated cnc and better programming software than I do (ie, someone who has invested $50k+), AND they got an order for hundreds of these, then it might be worthwhile. 


    My plastic part is fine at almost 50k with aftermarket sprockets for most of its life, I wouldnt hesitate to buy another for 50k of use.

    Sorry to be dense, but beyond the thread title  I can't recall seeing if it's definitely confirmed that these will be designed to work on 5th gens.  Want to be sure before diving in.



    I can definitely confirm that these will NOT bolt right up to a 5th gen. 


    It looks like half the battle is the shape of the cushion, and the other half the method of attachment. 


    I *think* the 6th gen bolt that these attach to, which is not present on the 5th gen, could be added to the 5th gen by R&R the left cstand bolt with a 6th gen bolt. I have not had time to confirm this.


    As for the shape of the cushion, the current stop design pushes against a section that does not exist on the 5th. But, the stop could be modified to engage the 5th cushion (further inboard) by adding a block or even maybe a simple bolt to reach inboard and engage the 5th gen cushion.


    That's what I could gather in a few minutes of looking at both, as mentioned earlier both 5th gens I have here do not have centerstands, so I'm stuck eyeballing. My shop is full and the bikes are in pieces, it's not ideal for developing parts

    @jkboyd I’ve checked with my fellow Aussies & they’re not interested.
    Are you waiting to hit a minimum order for @SEBSPEED or are you looking to close out & get going after a certain time?

    Not getting impatient, well maybe a little bit........


    No minimum order, just want to run as efficiently as possible 


    Let's say last call end of this week?

    Do you have them ready to go @SEBSPEED or do they need to be fabricated? I've just paid for a set of headers & it would be nice to get the centre stand stop in the box before it left the US.


    Lead time 2-3wks from when we reach saturation on a list of buyers. Shipping to Oz on 1-2 runs about $20usd. $50/ea price includes $8 shipping cost, so your cost would be $62 for 1 unit to Oz.

    Put me down for one for 6th gen header please

    New member here that has read lots and is excited by the idea of getting a set of these headers for my 2007 6th gen. I'd like to keep my centerstand and upgrade from a stock ECU to a Power Commander, probably just downloading a map. I'm running gutted stock pipes and have done the pair/flapper mods. I'd love to here from whomever is taking orders, woo-hoo Trump bucks


    Anyone else need a centerstand stop? I've got 3 total interested so far, unless I missed someone. I can do them for $50 each shipped in the lower 48, or $42 plus actual cost to points globally.


    I'll try to make a couple extra anyway, but times are tight so I can't sit on a bunch of inventory.

  10. I believe this patch was pioneered as a result of a customer of mine having his 99 tuned at a dyno shop in Seattle. We had installed an older model PC with ignition control so the header I built could be tuned properly. The shop he took it to insisted that they could not work with the older model PC2 and sold him a PC5. The bike didn't run properly with that one(as we suspected) and the shop worked with Dynojet to get it working properly.

  11. Nice job Kevin


    Sorry I'm late to the party... I use 1000 & 1500 wet and then buff with (buffing) compound on a foam pad when I restore lenses here. I use a soft rubber block to back the paper when sanding. It's really similar to restoring & maintaining a painted surface.

    Sorry to keep bugging you but do you see this happening in let's say the next couple of months? If not then I'll probably just button this project up with the stock rearsets and take another look into this next winter.

    I'm sorry, I have a lot of other projects going on right now and no funds to drop on buying parts and r&d for a revamped version. I will move forward with this when I can.


    I believe there is a V1 set for sale in the classifieds here, have a look

  13. Improper installation of the clutch slave at some point. Non-issue as it's not a support point for the rod and not within normal throw range of the cylinder. I would remove the pieces that have split away so they don't fall off by themselves, do your normal cleaning and move on.
