This just answered my question from your track day tread. Sweet bracket!! I respect it when people try to diy things to save a few bucks, mostly when those few bucks equal a few hundred!! Great job.
 
So it just pushed the rearsets outboard .25" along with the up and back adjustment?

My helmets off to you scordiaboy515. Good job of fabrication and engineering. As a machinist myself I can appreciate good metal working.

   Actually I drilled the holes on a Bridgeport mill with a digital read out, coz the hole locations has to be precise....the rest of the plates I cut out using a band saw, dressed up the ends, radiused the edges and corners with a belt sander.....then bead blasted for a manufactured look ;)

Damn man...nice handy work!
 
Very well done. How does the bike feel now? I would imagine you're leaned forward quite a bit more and your weight is more over the tank and handlebars?
 
Approximately how far did you move the pegs back? Four inches?

  Yes indeed, I went up 1 inch and 2 inches back, you can't do much more than that because of clearance issues with frame and swing arm.

 Thank you, I just try to think out of the box and save myself a few jingles....cause believe me....tires and brake pads are pretty pricey :D

Do you happen to have the vertical and horizontal measurement from the stock holes?

   Sadly, I did not keep my sketch.....it's pretty simple actually.  put the bolts in the bolt holes, measure across the bolts with a dial caliper and subtract 8mm to get your center distance from hole to hole.  Then you have to establish the angle of the mounting holes....they are different from left to right, once you have a rough sketch and the angles are correct just go up 1 inch and back 2 (with right angles) from each hole and you have your template.  Keep your blanks square while you are laying them out and drilling  the holes.....then cut the outside edges to how you like.

@scordiaboy if you decide you'd like to fab up a few more sets, or even just one... I'd pay for your time and effort. Looking at possibly getting the Graves but they're pricey... let us know. Thanks.
