Speedometer relocator bracket

3/16 INCH plate of aluminum and 8 hours of work guys.My dremel died on me or I was going to ball cut the edges and engrave the bracket I made. But I turned the handlebar stems around and hand made this bracket from a piece of aluminum I got on Ebay for 12 bucks.This gives me a better riding position and my mirrors are also better.The og iggy hole I'm planning to put a clock or DC Voltage gauge in it.

This is really cool. Do you have more room with the stems turned around? Stock setup I feel like I need to sit an inch or two farther back


Can you post a pic of the whole bike? I would like to see what it look like with this mod done. Also, how does it handle the vibrations?

The main reason why I made this was because I'm running drag bars and they where hitting the tank plus I didn't have full turn to turn. So now the handlebars have more than adequate room and I have more arm room to probably 4 more inches. This is a must do mod if you're running drag bars. I'm also planning to put a cafe racer nose fairing on it next.

Dude that bike is sweet. This is a kick ass build. I looked at all of your engraving work. That's badass. Do you have engine pics? I'm thinking of doing my cooling fins like that just don't know where to begin.

Here's some pics of the engine and forks too. Anything that is aluminum has been engraved. As soon as my dremel gets fixed I'll do the speedo bracket and my aluminum headlight bracket. I also filled in ALL honda logos and made in japan markings. You can use a dremel and a high speed #114 dremel round cutting bit if you want I can post the part number the bits are only $5.00 for 2 on A zon. They last forever I'm still using the 2 original bits and I made 1000's of ball cuts wit them. I also did up my 2013 Hayabusa and I have a aluminum mountain bike I'm doing up this winter.

That's badass. Not only does it look good, but increased the surface area of the cooling fins. Wouldn't surprise me if it runs a tad cooler than stock.
