Machined A BMX Cable Stop

I was letting a friend of mine borrow a BMX bike to check it out for the first time. He’s never rode any trails, or park. I figured he might need brakes. But after looking for all the parts, I was missing the cable stop! So I machined one real quick on the Hardinge HLV-H lathe.

KTM65SX Coil Mount Repair

Fixed this coil mount on this KTM65SX. It snapped off, and they tried to get by for the weekend. But I got it dialed back in.

Custom Stainless Handlebars For Surge

My buddy out in cali gave me some specs for some custom stainless handlebars he wanted. Came out to his specs, he was stoked. And it was my first time welding some stainless on the positioner. I screwed up on one of the bungs. But the second one was acceptable.

Face Mill Cutter For The Bridgeport MIll

Picked up a new face mill cutter of eBay for the Bridgeport mill. Went to CW Rod down the road and got some fresh aluminum inserts. It works amazing!

TTR125 Limited Edition FMF Exhaust


This muffler is for a Yamaha TTR125. It was a special limited edition FMF exhaust system. It cracked at the back of the can. So I welded it up on my welding positioner for the first time using it. Pretty killer tool!


Machined A Lathe Chuck Key

Scored a couple small 3 jaw chucks for my welding positioner. Needed a key, so I turned one down out of some square stock. Worked great for what I will be doing.


Albrecht Keyless Chuck Repair

This is the fastest repair tutorial outlined in my instagram post! Scored this chuck used on ebay for $125 got $224 into it after parts. Thats a good deal considering they are about $510 new! I also included the video making the tool for disassembly.


Motorcycle Auxiliary Fuel Bottle

I needed to bypass the stock fuel tank on a bike. So for a quick temporary fix, I turned down and threaded this lil tool to get a shot of clean fuel in the bike. It is not recommended for permanent use using a plastic bottle. It will break down. But it worked with some scrap I had laying around!



KTM125SX Subframe Repair

This KTM125SX subframe just had a lot of seat time on it. They kept it clean and polished. But the plastics started to wear through where it rests. There were quite a few cracks in misc spots. Got it dialed back in.

This is just a quick clip showing part of the process of lowering your KTM subframe a few mm. Can be done to any of the big bikes. If you don’t have the resources to do it, hit me up and I’ll dial you in. 1. Measure your old hole location. The bolt is about 8mm so you add half of that to this number for your measurement on center. 2. Blend the material back for a fresh start. 3. Add the extra mm to your original number (don’t forget half the bolt size) use a center punch mark your new center hole location. 4. Drill to size, then chamfer the opening of the bolt hole to match the taper on the head of the bolt using a counter sink bit. 5. You may have to remove some material off the end of the subframe to be able to get the new hole to locate on the chassis. *One thing to note is don’t get to get crazy with it or you will have problems with your silencer mounting back up. A little fudging to make it work is ok. Bolt it up and pin it! ✊ #KTM #KTM250 #KTM450 #KTM300 #KTM350 #KTM200 #armyoforange #KTMUSA #tig #welding #fabrication #mx #moto #motocross ✊✊✊
