Default GSXR top yoke to suit naked SV's

Hey

So I got this made:









As you can see, it's a like for like copy of the stock SV top yoke, but set correctly with offset and fork distance/diameter for a K6/K7 GSXR 600/750 front end.

I had Matt at Topyokes.uk make it up for me. I went through the usual and well documented slow turn around, couple of bits missing, etc - but we got there and it fits great. I had it painted elsewhere, by the way. Not quite happy with how it turned out, but meh...I won't be staring at it!

I've agreed with him that we could get a discount on these. So, is there any interest? I could purchase them all up front initially. I'd get him to have them anodized, unless people prefer to leave them as bare aluminium (wouldn't recommend it, they scratch up easy).

I'll have it on the bike in the near future - end of September hopefully at the latest, so will update with pics then.

all those angles are wrong.

i asked Matt to make one for me and he was not too interested in doing so.

i went ahead and welded on my own shutter too one of Matt's yokes.

Oh you mean the way the gauges sit against the yoke...who gives a sh*t? Talk about being anal for the sake of it.


Well, Matt made it, he's up for making more.
