Talking Billet Triple Tree Top Clamp For Sale!

Hi folks!

I'm excited to announce that I'll be selling / producing a custom top clamp, like the one I used on my XS11 cafe project. If there is interest, please check out the product on my store page: http://shop.neverstopbuilding.com/co...ant=1115689347

A reprint of the product description:

Clean up the look of your 'ol Yamaha with this custom CNC machined, billet aluminum triple tree top clamp. Machined out of a solid block of 6061 aluminum, this part is designed to replace the stock 37mm triple tree top clamp on 70s era XS1100 and Special models. It features a single M8 screw hole in the center to mount a clean single gauge or gauge cluster of your own design. The unit comes in raw aluminum finish, ready for anodizing, polish or powder coat, with all the fasteners you need to install in stainless steel.

I run this same clamp on my bike, so you know I built it to perform, and look great. Please note that these parts are currently built to order and have a few weeks of lead time, also if you want a different gauge mount hole configuration, or a similar product for a different bike, please let me know!


At the moment they are made to order, but depending on demand I can ramp up production a little bit. What do you think?

Are you still selling these? Thinking about selling again? Do I have any hope for a clean top?

I stripped the paint from a stock 81H triple tree and it was really nice looking. Shined up great with Eagle One.

Standard and Special have a little different offset/rake built in. The leading axle on the Special had Yamaha change the rake at the triple tree between the two.

$250

Anyone in the DC Baltimore Area have a standard that I could measure, I could explore making a version for standards if there is enough interest.
