I ordered in one each of most of the Rizoma parts I've IDed. Plan to 3d print copies needed for the rest of the vehicle, and would be happy to offer those up to folks at that time.

I also found the right fader knobs to go on the steering wheel.

Ordered those sliders. Spent a few hours looking for the round ones but couldn't find anything close. I was looking for electronics amplifiers etc. knobs. What else could they come from. Looks like they have a little line like a volume knob. What about a gun sight? I think their too big for that.

Yeah they are tough ones... Looking at similar audio knobs, guitar knobs specifically seem to have the knurling and Allen key tightening stuff and the line indicator we are seeing. Not sure I've ever noticed gun site parts ever looking like that. Am thinking like the Rizoma stuff, once they find a part they like they grab more for other things, so might be off same brand of audio mixer if we find the right one.

Freekin' Rizmoa center piece is about $122.00. I wonder if there's a Chinese knock off or somebody with some CAD skills can make a file for us of some of these parts.

THEMAN,

Try looking at adjustable torque thumb screws. There are a couple manufacturers that have through-hole heads with allen set screws. Then just add a simple tapered spacer....and you have the look.

That's a possibility, but I would think we could find the ones that were actually used. They really do look like something that would be used on a guitar or amp. But I'm a musician and I have to say I have never seen anything like that on amps or guitars. Generally they have more of a "hat" shaped knob or the standard dome style knob. That's why I was thinking it was off some other kind of gear, like camera gear or rifle scope or stand. But no luck so far.

Extrapolating the concept that they would use things with which they are familiar I looked at Rizmoa parts but sure didn't see anything like it. Since they basically built a Baja truck, what about something from that area? Like a light bar fastener or something like that?

Slysnake,

The twill knurled screw-on head with allen set screws just throws a giant wrench in the logical thought process. Maybe it’s just a simple knob drilled through with a thumb screw securing it, then again, maybe it’s something out of left field a prop designer thought of just to mess with our minds.

Rizoma stuff - I was finding a few options stateside in the 74-95 $ range delivered on the steering wheel "hub"(crankcase slider)... although some were other colors needing to be repainted. I have one of each of most of the correct parts on the way, with some in correct colors... and once I have them here I will look at the 3d route for most, but maybe that steering wheel hub cover can be done on one of my lathes in real aluminum. Just have to find time to warm up and get back to using them as its been years...

these places have some of the parts, incorrect colors to be repainted can be found for good deals too.

https://www.motovationusa.com/rizoma

I found a couple things here...

https://www.solomotoparts.com/Rizoma-Camshaft-Cover-for-S1000R-14-16/

this place has both black for console and red for side mechanics available.
https://motowheels.com/i-10205474-rizoma-rear-shock-absorber-pivot-adjustment-diavel.html
little more $$ here...
https://www.oppracing.com/product_display/212267-rizoma-shock-absorber-pivot-adjuster/

pretty sure I got my two console shock adjusters here, and they have the red side ones too...
