About $15 each when I have a 24 made.
i thought a bought abs, but I was worried about uv, temperature and durability. The gauge and grade of aluminum I used, ensures they will hold up to the test of time and constant use.

I have not received any request or feedback giving some indication that there is still an interest. plus the fabricator has not gotten back to me after speaking to him. Sorry, so I guess I will not be Making any, anytime soon.

I'd be really interested in this as I just got a new zx14r and having a phone charger would be really handy. I've got friends that can do the frication for me. I would just need the dimensions and all.

Howdy folks
I hate being a civilian and not have access to micro-station.
Let describe the process I used.

I hand made a template and scanned and put the file in microstation over a decade ago.

the last one I went back to the basic and Hand made a template.

I used a cereal box to make a template.
I then transferred the template to this aluminum stock I purchased at ACE Hardware. The width is perfect.

I used my digital micrometer to determine the radius of the fork tube. Once I got a basic rectangle with the cutout for the forks, I laced it in place and marked for the bolt holes. The rest is not so critical. The notch allows for them to tuck in nicely!

I hope this helps.
I would be willing to use mine to trace around to send the actual cardboard template, via snail mail

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
In 2019 I had a couple dozen brackets made for the ZX14R/Z1400 and offered them up for free. They were gone in less than a week. I decided to do it again this year, because I purchased my 7th ZX14R and needed to wire it up. So far I have had only 4 fellow riders ask for a set. Plus a set for me and a friend. I believe I have about 15 sets remaining. They do require longer bolts; they bolt to the bottom of the bars. I think they look factory. They are powder coated semi-gloss black.

PM me (I am not sure how that is done on this site) or drop me an email or text. You are welcome to call, however I don't answer unknown numbers, due to millions of spam and robo calls, so leave a message. Or text me and arrange a call. My email is izzdoug @ icloud . com. My cell is 3 6 0 9 1 4 2 1 5 5. I live in the GNW, Whidbey Island. Pacific Time.

Again they are free. I was going to make people pay for shipping. But that is a hassle. There are no strings attached. This is not a scam. You can google zx14r 12vdc outlets and you will see some of the folks that received them. It is just my way of putting positive energy out there in this time of stress and arguing.

I also make a nice harness that is keyed. It has three circuits, two keyed one hot. I keep the USB hot. They keyed is the 12vdc socket and a hardwired radar detector. I am not offering the harness for free or money. I will offer advice and part numbers.
I use marine grade sockets. Most of the time they are Blue Sea. spendy, but great equipment.

they will fit from an 06 to 23.
fyi.
I found a couple lesser quality bolts locally and used them with mine. I was bolting them up to check fit and when I went to take them off the lock nut locked up. Some how it went on as normal, but halve way off it froze up. More then a simple cross thread. The bur inside actually destroyed all the threads. I had to use a hack saw and plenty of patience. So don’t scrimp on China bolts. I was afraid it was going to destroy the triple tree.
