I made this bracket today for the AiM Solo 2 mount for a friend, but figured if there's enough interest I can make a bunch of them and sell them. I printed it out of ABS. It's 0.2" thick so it's plenty sturdy. Uses the 2 threaded holes in the top triple clamp that are normally used for the stock clip-ons. Also this wouldn't work if you still have the standard ignition and use a key, although it may with some big spacers. Haven't tried because I don't have a key for mine.

If there's any interest, let me know, either by PM or reply in this thread. I would sell them for $25 in person, or $30 shipped.

Nice. And I bet light because it’s plastic. I guess that’s why it’s so big.
Yeah it weighs like 40 grams. It doesn't have to be this big for sure, I was just trying to make something sturdy enough and somewhat visually appealing. A piece of aluminum strip like that works just fine too. I actually don't even have a Solo 2 lap timer lol I just had the mount because it came with my ZX6R when I bought it. Thinking I might get one later this year for the ZX6R though. I have a different lap timer for my 400...just made this bracket for a couple of friends to use on their endurance bike.

I bet you could make some reinforcement beams on the backside for strength. What you’ve done is nice. Just brainstorming.

Well I cut 50% material off it and about 30% of printing time. Don't have any cuz I'm about to start printing, but this is what it looks like now. Should still be plenty strong enough to handle the lap timer weight.

I was thinking of putting one on the steering stem with an expansion plug and a standoff.

Not sure what you mean by that. The steering stem is basically just a hex nut. Can't really put anything on that.

This looks very good - I would be interested in one.

Nice! and right, if you need strength and it does not sit flush against the upper triple you can put some ribs on the back side, even 1.5-2mm tall will give it more strength, if its even needed

looks like a jeep grill !!! great work brother !
That's funny cuz I thought the same thing when I saw them, but didn't even think about it while I actually designed it! LOL I'm basically one vertical line in the middle from being Jeep-inspired lol

That’s awesome! Does it come in red? 😀

I’ll take one.
Unfortunately all I have is this white ABS. One of these days I'll buy a pack of spools of a few different colors, but it took me a while to figure out my settings to print with this material without any issues. It was a PITA at first and I gave up on it for a while. Now I got it figured out though and just had some of this white spool left.
