Aluminium Motorcycle Top Yoke Machining

Here at Flashcustoms we can take a standard top yoke or fork clamp and modify to suit your requirements. We can also design and manufacture a custom one off item or a set to suit your bike or to simply stand out from the crowd with something totally different. All our stressed parts are CNC machined from aircraft grade aluminium.

The image below is a modified Triumph Top yoke. Our customer has used clip on bars instead and wanted the original top yoke and included cast handlebar risers to be machined down and “capped” to leave a flat smooth looking yoke.

You will notice that because it is a casting there are pockets inside and underneath where the original bar risers had been. The actual remaining machined item may well have been perfectly strong enough to deal with the forces going through it. However, to finish it off and add a little more strength a “top plate” was cut out and fully welded around the machined area. This added in some additional material and strength and also finished off the machined down item leaving a nice smooth top to the modified yoke.

My customer had the completed yoke and decided to rub it down and repaint it himself. I could have bead blasted it and powder coated or polished and anodised it.

We look forward to keeping you up to date.
