thanks
46540-MBS-000 (vlx brake rod)
90065-KAF-000 (vt1100 shift rod) - looks like m@ mistyped this one, but I would guess this is what he meant.

thanks for the info! I'll get them on order tonight. I got the plates from a friend of mine, and he's even gonna drill them for me if I center-punch them! except for the diameter of the chrome tube spacers (maybe I'll just buy a cheap metric socket set and cut them all down, I want to make sure that I have enough 'shoulder' for the spacers and stuff.) as far as the shift rod, I was thinking of getting a couple of clevises and using a piece of all-thread inside a piece of aluminium tubing. Or should I just go the expensive route?

Looking FORWARD to getting this done on my scoot!

ok, got the brackets back, drilled. I shot them with some black primer. schweet! picked up spacers from the local hardware store, and after a bit of cussin' and sweatin, got the parts on and adjusted...except..

I don't have the brake rod. I want to try and find one for cheap. I saw one on e-bay, but I'm looking for one I can just cut the ends off of. drill out new holes and use 'allthread' and some parts to make a new rod (I figure to cover it with heat-shrink tubing for a decent look)

SO...if anyone has a dicked-up brake rod they want to get rid of, let me know.

90% there......

What i did was cut the rod off as close as i could.
Went to ace hardware and got threaded rod and got aluminum tube as tight as i could cover with. It is simple to fabricate size. It worked great until i had someone make me a new one. I did find a rod on ebay if disaster struck.
If i can do it ayone can. the rod cost about $8.00
to create. Good luck.

Ok..got a used rod from a 99 600VTX. now I got to figure the bends. I figure 2 90-degrees, as the offset is about 2 1/2" and the length is over by about the same amount.

Lessons learned: get the rods and other parts before drilling the plates. you may adjust the drilling to better accomidate the parts you have.
Think about how the plates will sit before shaping them (the right side holes are at a 30 degree down angle, the left was horizontal.)

Pics will follow.

Talking Finally!!!

Finally able to get some time off and get those forward controls done. I didn't have time to paint them like I wanted but got excited and put em on and rode. Thanks for this site and the mods updates. They gave me a little more trouble than I thought they would with my after market exhaust. But If I can do it any one can. They aren't the prettiest ones out there but damn it's nice to stretch out. I got a few pics if you wanna check them out. I did have to use a 12mm socket instead of a 13mm and the brake side had to be 3 inches by 8.5 inches for it to work on my bike.
Thanks again can't wait to keep working on my Scoot.
