Talking K1200S Torque Arm Art

Thought I'd share some shots of the most beautiful custom torque arm I've personally ever seen. Many here have seen those custom arms I used to have made for the RS... A few months ago I asked the same guy to produce one for my S and just today...
got this prototype ...

While I don't like the logo on it, he is already changing it for me to something a little more symmetrical. My main priority was to keep the same curvature of the factory arm which he did...

Is this sucker beeeautiful or what?? The guy is an artist...

BTW.. The guy that's painting my bike is done... a few parts have already arrived from Kaleeefornia... the rest of them will be here Weds next week. WooHoo!!

Jerry, the new one looks longer than stock... is that an optical illusion?

Yep.. same length.. same specs.. I didn't want any changes that might effect warranty and changing the geometry just might.. The piece is purely a cosmetic enhancement.

Never underestimate the unscrupulousness of a dealer when your bike has a prob and you've added variables...

jerry,

didn't realize you were working on this product - we've been playing with an adjustable bar for a while and will probably release ours soon. as to adjusting length, we found you can really "tune in" the bike by playing with small adjustments - a 10mm length change adds ~5mm ride height which definitely helps the turn-in of the bike. here is a quick shot of ours on one of our new project bikes:

Is the torque arm is designed to flex slightly or is it intended to be rigid?
