Yoshimura rearset spare parts

I'm going to be making a few things for the first generation Yoshimura rearsets in the next few weeks, give or take. I'll probably be making the shift rods and the spacers that fit behind the main brackets. When Johnny Schwaig made his copies of the rearsets a few years ago, these are parts that he didn't include. If any of you guys bought his rearsets and would like to have these two things to help complete what you have, let me know. I have no idea what they will cost to make, since the cost is so dependent on how many are made once the programming gets done. And, frankly, I have to say I don't care... It will be whatever it will be...

Re: Yoshimura rearset spare parts

I read an article in that Super Streetbike magazine (sept 2009) that a company www.MotoGpwerks.com made bracks to adapt Vortex rear sets on to the old frames.

Re: Yoshimura rearset spare parts

I'm doing fine, thanks. A bit busy, but it beats the alternative...

Cheers,

Re: Yoshimura rearset spare parts

Okay, I'm getting ready to turn the machine shop loose on these parts. I'd like to confirm what I think I need to make, 'cause they're only getting made once.

Here's the list of guys that are getting a shift rod:

LawBrkrRcn
Jackbird
gammamaniac
HARLEYFERGUSON

I have the same list, except gammamaniac, for a set of 4 bracket spacers.

I don't recall if Johnny made any of the left side heel guards, so let me know if you want any of those.

Also, let me know if you want any of the triangle-shaped pieces that attach on the inside of the right bracket to activate the brake light spring.

Any corrections or additions, please reply to this thread.

Thanks,
JR

Re: Yoshimura rearset spare parts

JB,
I'll take a set of the spacers as well along with the heel guard and triangle piece for the brake light. Might as well have the complete set up. Can you send a picture of the back side of the left bracket for heel guard bolt location. Thanks. L8R Mark

Re: Yoshimura rearset spare parts

Those of you that wanted the shift rods, let me know if you also want me to supply the rod ends and jam nuts. I'm getting ready to place a hardware order.

Thanks,
Jeff

Re: Yoshimura rearset spare parts

I have these rear sets for the brake and shifter on the bike I picked up recently (1986 GSXR), been ignorant on the origin of these parts, I assume they are not OEM.

Can someone clue me in on the history............

Thanks!

Re: Yoshimura rearset spare parts

The Yoshimura rearsets aren't your average, frequently-found-on-a-motorcycle set of rearsets. Collectors or bike restoration builders, looking for period correct aftermarket parts, prize these rearsets ... and so they're very sought after by specific individuals.

Post a pic of what you have ... share with the gixxer.com crew. We're always up for a looksy.

Cheers.
jb_xx


btw - there are a number of knock-offs out there. So any images you can upload, should help to determine exactly what you have.

Re: Yoshimura rearset spare parts

Okay,

I've made enough parts for those of you that were wanting them. I'll add up my costs and send PM's to everybody that needed something. Those of you that asked for the brake light switch brackets, let me know if I need to machine you a pivot bolt for the bracket.

Thanks,
Jeff
