X-Bracket Group buy - who's in?
« on: January 07, 2016, 06:16:18 AM »
Long termers with the MH900e will either have already cracked their original x-bracket or know of the weakness in the part generically speaking. The welds in particular are prone to cracking and there have been cases of things dropping off! The solution is to replace the original part for safe keeping with a new bracket made by Evolution engineering. They are a one piece item, much stronger and can be engraved with the MHe logo, the bike's unique number and even anodised any colour you want. In talking to evolution they are willing to do a run of ten brackets for us if we can get ten volunteers together. The brackets are approx. $440 USD for a base model with engraving, anodising an other options at additional cost. It might sound a fairly pricey option but the quality is exceptional and it allows you to keep the original and irreplaceable bracket safe.
I've attached pictures of mine so you can see how nice they are and how they compare. If you would like one for your own bike, let me know in this thread and once we hit the Magic Ten I will see about commissioning them. We have one pledge so far - another nine to go! ;-)

already have one, so not ordering, but wanted to say these are excellent

like lordmoonpie states, oem prone to cracking and I had no luck getting it re-welded
these are one solid piece and workmanship/quality are excellent

good luck with 'group buy'

That's three so far....we can go with less than 10 but it makes it more expensive so as I know the machine shop is bombed with work right now let's keep the list going here and see how many we can get to...

Is this the part that holds the licence plate?

The stock one is prone to damage?

That sounds right ignited, it's a weak design as the welds can snap. The billet part is much stronger, can be engraved with your number and let's you put the original part safely on the shelf.

Thanks.

We're up to six pledges....four short of the mark...unless you guys want to consider a slightly higher price and go for it without further waiting? Let me know what you want to do and I can only ask :-)

OK, so what would be the cost per unit if only six were ordered? 
Thank you.
