Machine shop got back triples today and figured I'd post images. When I have them installed on the bike I will post updates.

Very cool, simple and clean. Perfect platform to mount some custom gauges to. What did they run if you don't mind me asking?

Would any of you be interested in a group buy?

If we could get between 5 and 10 orders the prices would get reduced significantly.

For example, these were the prices for an SV650 upper triple clamp at different order quantities:

1 $350.00
2 $350.00
3 $260.00
4 $260.00
5 $200.00
6 $200.00
7 $177.00
8 $177.00
9 $162.00
10 $162.00

The price comes down so much because every time the CNC machine is setup to make a part there is a one-off setup charge to set up the clamping jigs and fixtures, cutting tools and machine programming. Simply, the more parts you make the more parts you can share the price over.

You can email me at Scott9861@gmail.com if you have any questions.

Thanks

I would certainly be interested. I take it it's the more popular 50mm upper x 54mm lower fork tube diameters?

I had the LSL triple trees installed last month. Wider than stock and way stiffer with more stability. I think this fork is amazing now.

The set I made a 50/53 but that can be changed easily.

The 50/53 is gor the 06-09 GSXR 600/750 which is the most popular for SV650 conversions anyway.

Thought they were 50/54. I gotcha.

Do you know what the center to center diameter is by any chance?

Curious if there's enough material to go 53/56 on them as well.

Are these using the stock stem pressed into them I guess?

Standard GSXR fork leg centers are 207mm.

My lower triple has 5.0 mm around the fork clamp, I wouldn't want to reduce that for the lower clamp that takes all the load. I would add 2.0 mm to maintain the 5.0mm for a 56mm fork leg.

I'll take the solid model to work and run an FEA on it and see what the max load is.

How can we use a stock front wheel with these forks?
