    Alloy welding

    My pickup spool has snapped off my track bike and I need it welded back on. I know there must be plenty of experienced people on here with the right equipment.




    I would prefer some NOR (not essential though)
    cash/beer on offer

    Thanks in advance, Kingy

    Can you use these instead of pick up spools

    Is it just me, or does that "alloy" look to have browny/orange rust on it?

    Ferrous alloy?

    Not just you...
    Do you remember the good old days before the internet?

    when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.

    Probably be better off just to use the one remaining spool as is

    Just checked my R3 swingarm and it attracted a magnet.

    66's dad or a decent welder fabricator could fix with the swingarm removed.

    The spool mounts have just two tacks and as seen the steel is very thin.

    And Yamaha persist with 6mm spools, even on R1's,
    I was going to drill and tap up to Honda 8mm, but its obviously not the weakest link.

    ^yeah, it might actually be worth changing to a really weak bolt to hold the spool so that the bolt snaps instead of the swingarm mount

    My Home made MA spec shark fin strengthens the area somewhat, even more so had I not gone for max weight savings.
    Shaped, curved to go around the weld,
    RTV to fill the gaps,
    Masking tape for nice finish,
    Picks up on the spool bolt,
    5mm nyloc nut tapped out to 6mm to fit,
    One 1/8" rivet at the leading edge.
    But I'm a bit more OCD than you,
    and not planning on any scratches!













    *Anyone who mentions clip links gets carved, lets leave that in the past eh

    Titainium sprocket nuts and Black Vortex 44T rear coming to save some more grams.

    As above, my old man is more than handy with steel and ally.

    Also as above, swingarm out is going to be best.

    Aufit, tidy work there
    The greatest excitement comes from besting who you were yesterday.

    You could line it up nice with 6mm booker rod from the other spool.

    They made the R3 swing arm nice and long and featherweight alloy steel Deltabox construction, but the trade off is its brittle.

    That's just sheet metal, mild steel. No alloy there. Mig welder will do the trick
