Italian guys can better contact me directly, a lot cheaper for shipping since Italy is within europe for us.

Greetings Dr. Bean,
Shipping expense be damned! How can I get one from you sent to the U.S.?

Well.. apparently it is very difficult for you to arrange a group buy, or reseller in the US. so I will try and ship some samples individual.

Let me summarize here:

the kit itself: 40 euro 56.67 $
shipping as package: 24.3 euro 34.43 $ ...
shipping as letter: 2 euro 2.83 $

a package is insured and has tracking, but the price is ridiculous for 1 set, for a few, it is ok and save
A letter has NO tracking and NO insurance: lost is lost. but nice and cheap: 60 $ all in.

If you send me a PM I'll try and ship a few (up to 10 to usa) and lets see whether that works out or not: I am NOT responsible if customs confiscates the package, you take the risk. I have done 1 to US so far, without any problems.
please make sure to send you address in the PM as should be printed on the package.

regards

As I told Gerben before when I got mine, US Customs isn't like Europe Customs.

I've never once had duty accessed on an item that was shipped via the Postal Service (i.e delivered here by USPS) even when they are clearly listed as "commercial" on the customs declaration. Couriers like UPS/DHL are totally different.

I'm not sure what the theoretical customs duties are for the US. I couldn't find any mention of them online. Anyone know for reference?

Mine was sent "letter" and arrived fine without it being confiscated I'd imagine if you owed duty you'd be summoned to the Post Office to pay it. It's not like your shipping child pornography.

Not installed it yet. All my maintenance got postponed for 3 months due to a combination of unfortunate reasons. Just finished bolting her back up after valves, water pump and AdvTank install.

I was going to ride her Monday and if all is well, do the fuel pump after that (don't like to do too many changes in parallel).

Of course I only have 12k miles so I expect the stock points are still fine.

I've got a pristine (read: good used) OEM Mitsubishi that I'd like to put one of Doc's kits in. My Facet has over 30k miles without a hiccup, but I can't expect it to last forever.

I have a spare new fuel pump (good deal here on the FM), a spare new set of points plus the uninstalled Dr Bean kit. Clearly at some point in time I wasn't quite sure what I wanted to do and went a bit overboard. I should sell some of them.

I'll find out how worn the points are next week (12k miles). If they don't look bad I'll keep them as a spare and sell the above new points, else throw them out. Is there a good thread on assessing points wear?

I haven't had much luck with the points. Seem to be pretty fragile. Fall apart when I touch them. Been real lucky in the past as long as I didn't mess wit 'em. If I get the Doc's kit, I'll put that one in and carry a new Facet until I'm good and sure the OEM will be reliable enough for the Road of Bones. Prolly find a place on the bike to stash it anyway. Never can be too safe

I'll find a place for my old 40171 on one of the farm implements around here, or maybe replace the 100k mile Mr Gasket flux capacitor on my ST1100. Prolly be closer to the proper pressure for the V4 anyway.

lifespan of Dr. Bean kit?

Dr. Bean,

What do you estimate the lifespan to be of your kit?

Thanks!
Pax

limited by the lifespan of the pump (membrane, solenoid rod).
>100'000km

Occasionally I have seen the rod of the pump freezes due to heavy oxidation, in areas where they put tons of salt on the road in the winter (like we do here in Holland).
So far all kits I ever delivered are still running flawless.

but I don't have any 100'000km tests... I do my best, no warranty.

regards
