Feedback for EFN Tool

Thanks for your purchase and for letting people know you like it.

Once you see how easy filling your tank becomes with the tool holding the boot back you'll be sold on it.

Reviews by buyers

Here are some of the reviews left by users of my EFN tool:


Just tried this today and it worked really well.

I have a KTM 990 Adventure and filling up its dual tanks is always a hassle. Its easy to have gas spray back if you don't get the correct combination of nozzle angle/gas flow and vapor boot pull back.

The tool was easy to slip on and gave plenty of visibility when fueling up, especially since I now can now do it one handed.

I keep the tool in my glove box. Well worth 5 bucks.

Mine showed up right away, mailed fast.
Only tried 2 gas stations so far but it fits right. Made the Chevron a lot easier and nicer to be able to see into the tank when topping off.

And with my ST1100, I stick it under the fuel door so i don't have to dig it out of a pocket when I fill up. A little spot of velcro might hold it in place for other bikes...

Yepper, happy camper here. Works great. I also used it on my gas can.

Okay, I finally got around to trying this thing, awesome. I like the hole design over the Aerostich version, it is less likely to fall off the nozzle. Held the vapor thing back perfectly. Heavy construction yet lightweight. At this time I can't think of any needed improvements.
You should mass produce these babies with ads for cycle shops,mags, etc. Much better than keyrings. Let me know if you want someone walk these around the SF bay area.

I used mine today for the first time...works GREAT!

I had put it in my wallet next to my credit card so I'd remember to use it.

It also fits perfectly in the little pocket on the right forearm of my 'stich.

Two thumps up!

I made my original about ten years ago, just didn't think about selling it at that time.

Anyway, glad you like it.
Just wish more people realized how easy this tool makes it to top off your tank.
Once you see it in action or use it, it sells itself.
I may have to do a video and put in on youtube.

Howdy, Kai Ju!

Hi There, KJ!

Some Inmate was bitchin' a few days ago about scratching up his tank with the foreskins/elephant trunks on the nozzles. I was in a hurry and didn't dig out this thread to link for him but did tell him that you had a nifty little solution for the problem and that he could search out your thread.

** Off Topic **

Luvvin' the SHawk and it would have fitted in beautifully at the KOA at Bike-Half-A-Week; I had three young, (very young - the oldest turned 22 on Saturday!), squids & one squidette from Georgia camped right across from me, their Zooks stripped about as far as a bike can be and complete with flip-up-when-moving license plates and all. They were a hoot and none of them got killed, (though Birthday Boy did, in a moment of inattention while over on "the strip", trip and get a pretty good patch of "sidewalk rash" on his right cheekbone just after mignight. I bought him breakfast later and helped him flesh out a story about the honey who looked like a cross between Brooke Shields and Sandra Bullock (in earlier days), her 6'8' (at least!), 280+lb BF (not an ounce of fat on him, shoulders <--------> this wide, etc., etc.!), and the exception taken to young squid's advances. I'm betting he ran with it when they got back home. :) despite their best efforts, and their eyes lit up and they listened intently ('course, they were drinking free beer at the time ) when I told them about your SHawk. What they would have done to/with it had they had the chance doesn't bear thinking about! Pic of "Squid Camp" attached.

Gonna ride the SHawk to the local HOG Chapter's annual Chili Cookoff today (yes, I'm a Life Member of HOG and have been for 13 years or so) and the Tyler Chapter is riding down to join in (I bought the Street Rod there so many of them know me, too) and I'm thinking that your Rad, Red, Snarky SuperHawk, parked smack in the middle of a sea of chrome-laden or blacked out cruisers, some of their owners in full uniform with bandana pulled down over eyebrows and ears, Jesse James style (What a DORK!), will look a whole lot more like a Hawk in a flock of pigeons than a duck out of water.

Hey! an old man's gotta get his jollies wherever he can find 'em! (Pics will be taken!)

(Started a thread in "Thumpers" you might find interesting seeing how you handled a bunch of the KTM parts being addressed. See "Thinkin' 'Bout Doing Something Stupid ..." if you find yourself with nothing better to do.)

** Hijack OFF **

Best to the luvverly Mrs. Kai Ju and your neat kids and
Have a great big juicy weekend!!

I reviewed this tool a month ago. Originally only tried it on an old pump and the nozzle didn't allow it to lock in place. Now that it has been over a month, I have used this tool a bunch. It works fantastic on all modern pumps. I use it everytime I fill up now.

EFN Tools

Hello Folks, take a look at this EFN Tool and wonder how you can live without it.
Ok, that maybe a bit over the top, but if you read the reviews you'll see what I mean.

I've got plenty left and the price is still $5.00 shipped in the lower 48.

PM me for Paypal info.
Just let me know how many you want.

If you look you have to buy

Way too many folks have looked at this tool without buying it.
This is truly some of the best 5 bucks you'll ever spend, trust me.
Yes I know I'm biased because I have used mine for almost ten years now and can't imagine not having it.

If you live anywhere they have these vapor recovery nozzles you owe it to yourself to have at least one of these tools, per bike you own.

Anyhow, read the reviews in this thread and feel the urge to buy.

PM me for PayPal info.

I bought one of these for my fly & ride from Seattle to SE AZ, it worked perfectly.

At my last gas stop in California I filled up and then watched a herd of Harleys across the lot doing the same thing. They were having issues holding the pump sleeve back so I went over and popped this tool on their pump and told them to go at it. They were completely amazed and wanted to know where I got it. Karma being the rule I gave them mine so now I'll have to buy another if I end up going back through CA.

Great tool and highly recommended.
