Titanium outboard motor bolts

Posted by on Oct 24, 2014 in News | 0 comments

These are 2 hefty bolts to hold the outboard motor onto a boat. But this boat is a Thundercat, the ones they race seriously, you know, the ones that fly more than float, they take off for a hundred yards and touch down just enough to take off again! The problem lies when they touch down it rips the motor off! So we’re trying to fix the problem with titanium bolts.

Kawasaki ZX7RR WSBK type titanium chain adjuster bolts

Posted by on Oct 23, 2014 in News | 2 comments

These are chain adjuster bolts for a Kawasaki ZX7RR, but not just any old Kawasaki ZX7RR, one thats got an ex WSBK swinging arm in it and i suspect a shed load of other WSBK bits as well. Studs like this can be tricky to make when there is no plain shank in the middle to hold on to whilst cutting the second thread, these are a bit better (not easier note!) but better as they have a collar, so when i’d made a holder for them the collar screwed up against it and held it more firmly than without. They have a 4mm socket in the end to make the adjustment.

Here’s the titanium rear axle nut, washer and swinging arm pinch bolt for a Honda VFR800 i’ve made recently, jolly nice they are too! I like making these big nuts and bolts as there’s not much fiddliness and they are impressive when finished. The nut has 46mm A/F and 35×1.5 thread.

Titanium BST sprocket drive pins

Posted by on Oct 17, 2014 in News | 0 comments

These are titanium BST sprocket drive pins for an Aprilia, they’ll be raced in America. Twiddly things to make, i had to make a holder to hold when cutting the second thread as there isn’t enough plain section in the middle to hold on to, so it made them a bit more involved and nerve wracking to produce. I’m not a big fan of holders, they have a tendency to move when you don’t want them to, i prefer to hold onto the job itself if i can.
