Lucky Phil extender mod

The part numbers for all models from 99-07 are the same. Complete assembly and the steel lever itself.

That some of the foot levers have different appearances (protruding bushing) is no false alarm.

There are two lower-rear subframe versions (late model long-frame has braced subframes).

Do any of the late models index the protruding bushing into the subframe tab?

On my bike, the bush protrudes from the foot pedal lever (item 1), and just fits into the hole in the pushrod drive lever (16). That lever (16), that Chuck is making, has the rear lower hole the same size as the bush (2) OD, not the pivot bolt (5) OD. At least that's what I'm expecting when the slow boat from California arrives, and that's what Chuck's CAD drawing seems to show. And Chuck's picture in post #18 of this topic.

I made new bushes (2) for my Pedal Lever, and I expected to be able to drive them further in, as Docc suggested, and trim them off later, but no. The counterbore for the outboard bush was about 10mm for a 10mm long bush. At the inboard side, the counterbore was about 8mm for the 10mm bush. The bush on that side is designed to protrude, but not enough to touch the subframe tab.

This is correct from my experience. I did the same, made new bushes and modified the bolt so the threads didn't destroy the inner bush.

It seemed easy:(

You are in line for one from your post on page one of this thread. Oops, I have an email from you for 2, the wrong address *did* go through. 

Some things aren't meant to be understood.

Alright everyone, listen up. If I've replied in an email or here and said you were in line for one, send me an email with your snail mail address. I'll give you mine and Paypal account if you want to do that.

Paypal, personal check, barter for beer..

I'll send the extenders out as soon as I finish them up.

Still have to clean, bead blast, and chromate. That'll take a day at least. I've decided you guys are working me too hard :oldgit: so I'm taking a few days off and riding the Mighty Scura to the Ohio rally.

I'll get these out next week.  :thumbsup:

I was interested in the mechanics of this Chuck and now I know. That's quite a bit of work there, well done. You've made my attempt look rather pathetic:)

Enjoy your days off at the rally.

Thanks, Phil.. actually, it was more work than I expected. I've never done a run of 4130 before. Normally, when building an airplane, I'll make one of a part, and don't give a thought to how tough it is on the cutter.  :)  I used up several end mills on this "production"run. In hindsight, I should have gone to a laser or water jet shop and had them make the blanks. At first, I thought, "no big deal, I'll probably only make 10 or so." That's why I did them this way. It's so 20th century.. :rasta: but it got the job done.

I know what you mean. Some metals are hard work. I just finished making attachment brackets for the new bike rack I should have fitted 6 months ago. I had a brainwave and pulled some titanium out of a scrap bin, thinking that it would match the titanium cans.

What a dumb idea!

I couldn't cut it, so made up a .dxf file and went to the closest laser cutter. They said "nope, 4mm thick is the limit for that stuff without argon, and we use nitrogen". Then the water cutter said "8mm? Sure, come back tomorrow with $90". That's when the fun started. I wrecked 4 drill bits and 2 taps, but at least it didn't catch fire.

Then I painted the brackets black, so the idea of matching the cans was wasted.

Next time I think that Ti6Al4V is a good idea for something, I'll have a beer until I calm down.

I believe that the Russians make a lot of titanium stuff, which helps explain why they drink a lot of vodka.

We know that you got the idea, trialed it, and then told everyone. Well done you too!

It wouldn't have happened without your efforts.

Thanks, as long as people are happy with the way it works then I'm happy.

has a couple of titanium pieces. Saved a little less than a pound.  :rolleyes: What a nightmare to machine.
