SS billet, lower triples...

Who makes billet lower triples for SS bikes?

I tweaked my stock one last time I crashed, and although I straightened it as best I could, I feel it's a weak link anyhow. I have the cyclecat upper, as I converted to superbike forks. Does anyone make a billet lower triple, possibly one designed for the superbike fork conversion, so I can do away with the shims?

Thanks

I recently ordered a billet bottom triple for my 98 900SSFE from Italy.
It is 60mm high (stock is 40mm high). It comes with an aluminum steer pin.

Cost was $550.

Thanks Moto,

Sounds interesting. Who makes it? When you get it, post a pic.

I just bought a used superbike lower triple, and am going to send it to Alex Ortner, along with my stock lower and tube.
He is going to do some machining, and swap out the steering tubes for a fit to my SS.

Should solve my problem, be stronger, with the added bonus of being able to eliminate the shims

He gets $200, you supply the parts.
