|HRC Swingarm Lifters on a Honda CBR1000RR|
I have been impressed with the idea of 3D printing. It gives me a chance to make parts that are either unavailable or customised.
In this case, the endurance lifters have a nylon guide fitted on Honda RacingBikes. These are every difficult to get hold of. So here is my challenge...
I created a rough template of along the lines of the shape seen in the photo. I contacted a company to convert the sketch into a 3D CAD Drawing.

Once I am happy with the finished design, I sent it off to the printers for printing. This is a real leap of faith as I wait for the final product to be printed and it fits. At the end of the day, its affordable and easy to do so a prototype will help make a better version if necessary.
How long did all this take. Well less than 2 hours later a design was created, and sent off to the printers. Amazing!
