 Post subject: (PRE ORDER) ZUMA 9 INCH STRETCH STARTING AGAIN
PostPosted: Sun Jan 05, 2014 9:25 pm 
Want to get in on a cheaper price now is the time to pre order the zuma 125 stretches I make
If you check page 4 that shows the newest revision of how its now made
I got some interested already, I have them on an email list
I want to see how many more are interested
Then shortly after I will let everyone know its time to pay, after payment they should be made within 3-4 weeks hopefully sooner

Also those that preorder will get there's shipped first and have the choice of whatever color powdercoat I have in stock if you dont want them to be black

And for those that want only the stretch, or rear shock mount now is the time to do this
Once they are made I cant break them up

So anyone who wants to preorder pm me
and I will add to the list

Ive already sold 10 so far from the previous orders
were looking at $445 for preorder prices and that includes priority mail with tracking most times only takes 2-3 days to receive it once shipped USA

I can do out of USA but extra shipping will be added














Hey im working right now on zuma 125 stretches
from the 2 I can find for sale online they range from $500-$600

Im hoping to have them under $300 shipped
Right now im test fitting the rear shock mounts as they are the hardest to make
the stretch will be easier

Im also trying to incorporate the license plate mount into the rear shock mount, so far ive not seen that done
Because you are stuck trying to figure out where to mount your plate after doing a stretch
and this way you can use the stock license plate light too
This can be cut off too if you dont want it

Nothing is for sale yet, but when the prototype is done and everything works fine I would like to do a preorder at a lower price with a set number of stretches needed to be ordered



I will update this thread with pics as I go along
here are some of the rear mount fresh off the plasma cutter
Everything will be professionally welded at a shop
Going to test fit this one tomorrow get holes drilled
will probably cut out the license plate mount to make it lighter too
The license plate will mount at the bottom of what you see, using the stock metal bracket on the bikes fender

Image
Image


This is what im trying to accomplish with the plate mount
This is a stretch im using right now on my bike
I made this plate mount myself, set at the sharpest angle I could to keep the plate as flat as possible keeping it as legal as I can

rear shock mounts all figured out, mounted with plate
only a little cutting under the tail light plastic housing to make it fit

my plate sits much higher then my home made plate mount, no chance now of it hitting my rear fender
Now I may be able to soften my rear shocks a little since before I had it set to the stiffest not to hit the fender using the stretch I had bought

still designing it
just wanted to get the hardest part done with was the rear

for the stretch im trying to make it similar to the composimo where its layered plates
but using 2 tie rods on the sides like the flp uses and the same length as the flp I have right now on my bike which from what I can find out its around 9 - 9-1/2 inches not really sure

because I like the fact you can correct any wheel cant using the 2 tie rods on the sides plus its just as easy to adjust them too
and the fabricator thinks its easier to make the layered plate type stretch cutting them out and welding them up

Looks like the stretch is going to be $350 now
Im going to make 5 sets at first
Im also willing to sell just the rear shock mount with integrated license plate mount for $100 too

Going to get all the fittings tomorrow and the mount should be done this weekend

Here is the look were going for, hopefully wont have to make any changes to the design

the other option we talked about was 3 large dimpled holes down the center only
but we got to try something first so were doing this one


Image




for those using stock air box here is the clearance with the shock
Image
Image


So you wont need to remove it

for those that think they may need longer throttle cables
I had contacted motion pro because they claim to make custom cables
At first I was trying to see what it would cost, as maybe I could supply a longer throttle cable as an option with the stretch
Well they said I would need a vendor account or something and have to buy between 10-100 cables

So I cant really afford to do that

Next I asked if I could I send in my stock cable, you figure out what it will take to extend then save it in your system
Then I could point customers to you to order cables from
They refused that, they do not want anything to do with scooter cables
Not sure why, but whatever

But they did say I could send in mine to get worked on around $45
but can take up to 10 working days
So im not sure, one point they dont want anything to do with scooter cables, but then they would lengthen mine if I send it in

So who knows, I was trying to get a cheaper option then webike

Although I am still using stock type bars and my 5 inch extended webike cable I bought seems 5 inches too long
So it may be possible to use the stock throttle lines if you reroute the right way under the floor


But for sure I need a longer brake cable, which you can buy a gy6 cable on ebay like $15 shipped
thats what im using and it works fine

Changed up the rear mount a little
added more supports behind the rear shock mount
and did a lighten cutout behind the plate mount

Im will still continue to test the original mount I made, if it holds up this stronger version will definitely hold too

Image
Image



Also worked on the adjustable rods
There will be 2 on the stretch, and you can adjust with the knurled grip pattern

Could of spent more time making the ends look nice
but more time it takes for things like that more it ends up raising the price
so im trying to keep it simple, yet practical
