Straps

So im looking to lower my bike using straps.
The straps themselves are not expensive at all. But since the zx10 has radial calipers i have to get the mounts which are like 100 bucks from brocks.
Anyone know somewhere i can find mounts for cheap?

this is the setup im runnin & works great... two half inch longer brake caliber bolts & two half inch grade nuts, the nuts fit between where the strap bracket go for the added space your lookin for... all together cost me under 5 bucks...

made mine myself. didn't want to use the caliper mounts as i wanted to keep the force in line with the forks so i made a bracket with a slot in it for the bottom yoke pinchbolts and made some brackets with slots in to go onto some M10 threaded bar through the front axle. et voila.



then i just ratchet the straps down all the way. afterwards, take the straps off, leave brackets in place and ride home!

I have seen people use the front axle before, but that is the first I have seen anything like this! You should market those brackets my friend!

as a few people have shown interest in these, and KIXASS has asked for more info and dimensions i'll take one of the upper mounts off and photograph/dimension it for you. i'm sure the design is adaptable for any bike so maybe someone out there will be able to market them. i could do with some profit from manufacturing and selling them myself, but i don't have the time or the backing to look into it.
it should be noted that the inner fairing on my bike beside the forks ran very close to them and needed the rear of this area trimming by about 10mm i think it was, i'll try to detail it in a picture......
Gaz.

I've been running the same set up as ginja for the past 2 years, through the axle.
