Honda Fireblade titanium axle set and 7075 alloy frame inserts
I’ve been working on this set of titanium spindles for a Fireblade for the last couple of weeks, along with 7075 alloy engine mounting and swinging arm adjuster frame inserts, with the sidestand bolt thrown in for good measure.
These big axles are hard work, turning them to size is great as they don’t suffer as badly from deflection, even so both the swinging arm and rear spindles still had 3-4 thou. But drilling them is the stuff of nightmares! They have a 14mm hole through which is still small enough to want to wander off if you’re not very careful, its time consuming and physically hard work, but always worth it when done.
