I ordered a set of the MK3s on May 29th from Advdesigns. They anticipate 4-week delivery times. Getting close, I guess we'll see if I end up getting them or not.

If it's the v-twin oil I think you're talking about, stay away from it. It has additives for wet-clutches, which obviously, our bikes don't have.
