Titanium Seat Bracket Prototype

My YZ brackets were a great success. It’s time to expand into modern bikes now. If you have a late model bike, send me your brackets so I can copy and fabricate them from titanium. In exchange, I’ll send you a set. I’ll likely need the pair and will have to destroy one to get proper 2d dimensions. Lead time could be up to two months, so you’d probably need an extra set.

I’m only marginally familiar with the Yamaha seats. I know they’re riveted on and not available from OEM to purchase separately from the seat. I don’t know if other brands are like that as well, that’s where vital members come in.

If you’d like to be a guinea pig, let me know. For anyone wondering, I’m just a random internet guy with some cad software and access to a water jet. This is mostly just a hobby and have no intentions of competing with WC, nihilo or luxon. Hopefully some of the YZ guys can vouch for me.

It’s not modern but I have some spare 05 rm125 brackets. They come riveted on but I tore them off in hopes to have them made from ti for a future build. It would cover 01 to 08 rm125 and 250. It may cover some older rmz models as well but I’m not sure on that one. Let me know if your interested I will send them to you ASAP.

If enough people are interested in an older bike, I’d definitely do them for RMs. Would like to shoot for a dozen or more interested people.

I'd love to make brackets available for all bikes, but it's not economically feasible to do so. I have to stick to the popular stuff.

Would probably sell a decent amount of of old steel frame Honda Cr brackets, as they are not available in the US. I just paid 40.00 for these aluminum brackets from the UK. Photo

Looks like I need to make a run of RM brackets.

Need a few of you guys to spread the word and get a group together so I can make this economical. The more the merrier.

First one to send me a PM and their brackets will get a free set. Like I said, I'll have to destroy them to get proper measurements. And will probably be after new years before they'll be ready.
