I am Building a bolt down lock that you would park your rear wheel in and slide a bar through the rim to lock it,
my problems is I cant order my bike for another month, Due to my issues, and I havent got to see a fz07 in person yet... If someone who owns a 07 could help me out. I need to know what height to make the bar go through the rim so it doesnt hit the rim.. or to high and hit the brake disc, If someone could measure from the ground to the Bottom of the wave brake disc, so i can make the bar just below that, and Or measure from the ground to the rim. Thanks if anyone can help or make sense of this :p Im trying to go between the rim and the brake disc, Ive already welded the towers and the Base plate, Ill post some pictures soon, Then again after paint

From the ground to the top of the rim is 3in. (On the sprocket side with the bike on the side stand) And from ground to top of rim is about 4 1/4in. on disc side. (Remember bike is leaning)

The bottom of the sprocket is 6in. from ground. Sprocket and disc are about exact same size. A bar extending through the rim would have to be about 5in. off the floor, (at the bottom edge of the bar)

The rim on the disc side is slightly higher from the floor because of the lean, and the bottom of the sprocket is lower on the other side because of the lean. (are you picturing this?) Since the bottom of the sprocket is 6in. and the top of the rim on the other side is almost 5in. you have a very small window to get it right, like 1 in. I'd wait until you get the bike if I were you.

Just by looking at it I'd say the best way to go would be to have the bar go through the wheel BEHIND the sprocket and disc, much more room for the bar that way. If you go this route the bottom edge of the bar should be from 8-12in. off the ground and it will fit easily.

Wow, Grade A answer. Yes I understand perfectly as you fully understand my question :p thank you very much. I was going to do it either way you have explained. Im using an 1.5" hardened solid steel bar, Ill have to have it go slightly behind the sprocket and rear disc because that 1" gap just wont cut it. Again Thank you for the great answer
