Could you post the pictures here so I don't have to register on supermotojunkie ? Thanks.
May I suggest indexing the end on the rod like this so that you do not get the typical loosening of the opposite socket head cap screw? I have drawn a hex but even one flat would suffice. Then the receptacle in the Delron slider will accept this profile and engage 8mm or so.....
a few more drawings. talon would you mind elaborating why its necessary? what i gather is when your tightening the screws you arent able to tighten it properly cuz theres nothing to hold the rod in place. but if you have an allen key on each side it should provide the same thing?
I would have to think about this. When using nyloc nuts on a threaded rod, its a chore to get the rod centered as the nut that turns in is always the one your don't want to (thanks to ole' Murphy). When using a shaft as you propose, I don't think it will be the same because as you mention, just throw another Allen key onto the adjacent side. If your buddy is running a multi-tool CNC, its nothing to add the index to add a little more sex appeal over say a SME setup.
yea, thats kind of what had me confused. you could always zip disc or use a hacksaw to make a slot in the end of the threaded rod to allow for a flat head screw driver, not as pretty but would do the job you are wanting it to do
i think he will be making this stuff out of delrin rod on his cnc lathe. he does have a 3 axis cnc as well tho, so not 100% sure. not a whole lot of interest regardless, everyone wants SME qaulity for half the price, lol.
for those of you that don't want to bother... $75 at Vancouver Supermoto (front and back). done!
oh yeah, they're bike specific and made with high quality skateboard wheels. or would you guys likes to see some drawings first?
(in case you're wondering... yes, VSM is a sponsoring vendor of BCSB)

So your hocking skate board wheels for 75 bucks? Anyone with half a brain could do skate board wheels for under 30 bucks depending on how crazy you want to go on the wheels. Ktm makes nice shit what's so wrong with copying a basic design? I'd like to see these illustrious skate board wheels your toting, must be gold plated.
illustrations? I'll do one better... this is on a 2008 YZ250 supermoto we've built. it may not be gold plated, but it's still gold to go with the wheels.
VSM did my first sliders with the skateboard wheels and they did the trick just fine. Lasted for the first 20 slides! I went upscale with the bling after that though. Some real purdy sliders from the States that look so good, they must make me faster! More money though so I won't tell you cause I know you're saving for the RRSP!
Bottom line, VSM's sliders are as good a value as any others I've seen.
I just thought I would mention, Delrin is not used much in racing applications anymore as on higher impacts it tends to shatter. I think on your average low side you would be fine, but anything other then that, the whole thing will likely shatter.
Looks like your going through a whole lot of time & energy working on this design, maybe you can find a better material.

There are those who have, and those who will, but not those who won't.
great thread can't wait to put some on the bike.
Skate baord wheels and some threaded rod from Home Depot did the job for me...cheap cheap cheap! and they looked good too. The slider kits that VSM have are a good deal.

Just say NO to fairings!
