***Custom Vapor Mount jdubb Style***

Post  jdubb75 on Sun Jan 25, 2009 10:50 am

I installed a set of ProTaper bars on my 650R using universal bar mounts. That left me without a mounting point for my Vapor & billet protector. When the universal bar mounts are used, the mounting holes move closer together and it wouldn't allow the use of the billet protector I already had. After some web searching, head scratching and measuring I figured I only had a couple options:

A) Scrap my $45 billet protector and buy a cheesy mount off the triple dub interweb.

B) Make my own...

I liked option B a lot better. And what's cooler than fabbing your own trick bits for your ride? shrug

Below are some pics showing the results.

Enjoy! 2 thumbs


Here's a couple pics of the mount...







Mount on the bike to show use of stock odometer holes...







And finally, with the vapor installed...

I cheated and did it at work on a CNC mill. Don't have any pics of that.

Yeah, it's pretty stout. It doesn't really weigh much though. I guess I could have milled a slot in the back side to reduce weight a little???
