I Think the white frame and black plastics are going to turn out well. Cool to see you are keeping the Kawi colors.. . What plastics are you going with?
Maier race plastic front and rear.
also going to go ahead and get my plastic dipped. the yellow front and the new rear one I will order
got my stabilizer mounted. ended up using a u joint u bolt for a ford. it wraps around the frame nice and tightens down well. only thing I don't like is the mount rotates on the stiffer settings even with the nuts real tight. so when it warms up and after I strip the frame bare for the last time, I will weld the u bolt to the frame tube and be done with it.
I run stabilizers on both my blasters, an older Denton on my spare, and a Streamline on my white blaster. I'm not following why the mounts that appear to have come with your stabilizer wouldn't work and you had to rig it with a muffler clamp ?
There are also billit clamps like for our brake lines and mounts on UTV's you could use, that come in different diameters for different size frame tubing ?
It didn't come with a frame clamp, just an aluminum 1/4 inch angle with 2 bolt holes. The stem clamp was there and worked out fine. It wasn't an exhaust clamp that I used. It was a u-joint clamp. So the u-bolt is flat so it wouldn't crush the frame. I've searched high and low for a proper frame clamp but there isn't one.
I'll get a picture later to show what I am working with.
Here is what I have.
pretty sure I saw a pic of the stabilizer you had posted somewhere ?
and thought I saw both clamps ?
maybe not....my bad
I was thinking these brake line clamps ?............
I actually have a set of these I had gotten cheap/used on ebay, but were too small for my 1" ASR a-arm tubing.
I tried to drill one of them to 1" with a Uni-bit, but went too far, they're hanging on the wall no good to me, as I bought new ASR clamps.
you're welcome to them if you think they'd work ?
you posted as i was typing
that looks legit to me, nice job !
disregaurd my fumblings above
you see why I think I will weld the u-clamp to the frame? I need to prevent it from rotating on me if I need to run a stiffer setting.
What if you put some sort of a piece of hose over the frame so the U bolt is wraps around it. Then it would surely make it tighter. It looks like you may be bottomed out on the threads..
I can add a washer under the lock washers to move the nuts out more. I can actually tighten it up a little more but its pretty tight now.
if you're going to weld on the frame, might as well just weld part of the mounting tab and skip the u-bolt ?
here i go fumbling again
