Kawasaki ZX7RR titanium suspension bolts
And to finish off the titanium parts i’ve made for a Kawasaki ZX7RR here are a set of titanium suspension bolts. Normally i like to have the sleeves that the bolts pass through to hand when i make suspension bolts so that i can get the shanks a nice sliding fit with no play, but these are going to America so it was impractical to send them over, instead my customer accurately measured the bore of the sleeves and i’ve made them to fit the dims given, fingers crossed.
Mind you i did once make a set for a different bike with a nice sliding fit that required a shank diameter 0.1mm over nominal size, they fitted the sleeves beautifully but wouldn’t go through the holes in the frame! as standard the bike was constructed with play and slop in the suspension train!
I do hope these work well as my customer is going to be living off noodles for a month to pay for them………
