Pitbull front stand

I lierally own a half dozen pitbull stand, and consider them the best. I have collected a decent variety of pins for the center hole in various bikes triple trees over the years, all at $10 to $20 each. I was going to order one for the Pani and oh my god,$50!!!!!. Sorry, having a problem with that. I know there is an addition operation to put a bevel on it, but really? Or is it because it is for a Pani, and they think we'll pay it?
anyway, does anyone have one, and own calipers? I have a lathe and milling machine and can make one if someone can give me the measurements
Thanks
Brett

Yeah I hear ya. I did the same thing when I saw how much the pin was. Think since it's for Ducati =$$$ like everything else.

The pin number doubles as the diameter of the pin in mm. If you search my previous posts, I actually measured and posted up the diameter.

I speculate that the combination of limited model compatibility (one exotic/expensive bike) and extra materials/processes equals low quantity production at higher unit cost. Plus it's for a Ducati superbike.
I don't have that pin yet. But I will.

Thanks Chrissa, but there is also the height from the thru bolt and the amount of the diagonal cut from the top. It is a clearance issue that forced the cut on top, so diameter alone will force a bunch of trial and error, which I will do if needed, but would love to avoid

Ok, an interesting discovery about the pin. The fat part of the pin actually extends from the thin part at a very slight angle. There is also a lip at the base of the pin that the lower triple clamp rests on so it doesn't extent too far in (I just confirmed this by stuffing the pin up my R's head tube). The edges of the fat part of the pin are heavily beveled on the end (and are not part of my diagram).

I'm including a crude drawing with some dimensions plus a photo of the real pin. Hopefully this is enough to see what's needed?

Note: drawing is NOT to scale

Chris.

Thanks from Cobra700

Holy complicated pin Batman!!! Thanks Chris, you did alot of work, I appreciate it. It is also easy to see now why they charge $50. There are alot of operations there, and it is probably done in a CNC Mill.
