Thanks for the reply. I never heard of that. That is clever. Does it fit the 900 frame too or just the bigger bike?
Well, after dinner, I knocked one out.
I split a piece of tubing lengthwise and rounded all of the edges. (Less likely to scratch up the frame.)
I fitted the tubing to the frame and notched it to clear obstructions where needed.
I tack welded it up and checked the fitment. It is a good fit on the frame and I expect it to be rock solid. As a side note, the lower frame rails are not parallel. They are wider at the back by about half an inch. (at the locations I was measuring.)
Then I called it a night.
The jack comes with risers which are located with some pins. I like that feature so I will copy it with my adapter.
Tomorrow (or later in the week), I will:
1. finish welding it up.
2. make a few pins for my jig to make it work the same way as the risers for the jack.
3. make a couple of clamps with the left over tubing to clamp the frame into it.
4. paint it or maybe spray the contact surface with some of that rubberized coating in a can.
