Here's the hot new adjustable alternator mounting bracket for the Blasters 200w sound & light system!

Oooops, I'm in the suspension section...be back when I straighten this out... burp!
Sorry for the delay...uploadin the pic I realized I was showing much more of the secret YZ Blaster build than the public is ready for ..burp... so I reshot some pix tonight with our grape blaster.
Here's a better pic
Ok, it's a lowering bracket for stock shocks...:)

or banshee shocks...LOL...this is the stock mount..

This is lowered a bit.....

Ok, so ya only turn left, ya got a bit of stagger in the rear, and ya wanna psyche out the competition with your revolutionary front geometry...LOL....good for a laugh but mostly embaressing!

Ok, so ya gotta be a trend setter and start a new thing.....Ressies Down dude! Ah..hahahahahaha...

YFZ low

YFZ high

Startin a new thread is almost as much fun as buildin the parts..LOL...Truth is, I made these when I got a set of yfz's to replace the works. Wasn't sure exactly where I wanted to mount'em and I plan to try different a-arm ideas so I wanted some adjustability. Pretty easy with 3 bolts. I see a few peeps wantin to play with other shocks so I thougt I'd throw this out... Of course they're untested and just a visual explanation of an idea .. :) ..a little thought stimulation for the tinkerer.... these won't be available to the " Just go buy the heavy duty chrome model on eBay " crowd so I don't need a buncha metallurgical load distribution theory crap or some evaluation from your FEA software... LOL...I'm just a blaster butcher...Ahahahaha...
cool idea otis. always gotta be butcherin something lol

i still can't wait for vids of the new super secret yz250....
Looks pretty cool if I say so myself.

Thank you......Since building those mounts awhile back I've noticed the 03+ models have a brake line support that would probably interfere with some of the adjustability. Maybe someone could post a picture of that mount with a measurement I can use to locate where it is.
quote=04blasterboy;387848]u ever see my mounts otis? i bet u could do what i did for the yfz's, i'll get u some pics tomoro[/quote]

I think I saw your mod but it goes the other direction than I wanted to go. I needed to move the lower mount in for more travel & a little more leverage (softer ride). I have 2 options to test inside of the stock hole. I've been watchin all the yfz mods. I built this mount to be able to test as many options as possible.
is this your mount?...

Here's my front mount...

Sorry for making a mess of this post but this picture quit working after I made a text edit. It's been happening to me lately :( ...Anyway the picture of my a-arm I tried to post here is in my swingarm thread ... so it hasn't been "moved or deleted" ...
I need a set badly before i buy long arms i cant afford,lol. Let me know if your going to make any more?
Thought about makin some. That's why I asked for some pictures & measurement of the 03+ brake line support to check clearance. Don't really look like there's that much intrest in whacky mounts ...LOL

There is interest because this bracket will allow use of longer better shocks. I tried the lowering blocks from e-bay and the bottom of the shock interferes with the a-arm , wasted 26 bux. Not fond of spending 79 bux for the ebay conversion because it dont look good at all. I have a 2001 so i dont have no interferance issues if you want to sell a set to me to try. :D
making those shocks vertical is going to make for an awfully stiff ride

the normal stroke is supposed to work at about 20 to 30 degrees off vertical
