More info here: MyTech Tool Case. The price of €90 doesn't seem unreasonable either.

Thanks James. I was just going to ask about that.

I've sent this link to the guys at Twisted Throttle to see if they are interested in importing it. That would save us the USA the VAT and reduce the shipping costs, provided they don't mark the price up too much. We'll see what they say.

It's true with the 1200 as well. Sitting at a light you want to be careful blipping the throttle as you may end up on your side. It's less noticeable than on the Guzzi, but it's there.

USA buyers don't have to pay VAT anyways.

Another solution to consider with much more space/volume than that tool case -- I used a piece of 6" SDR plastic tubing (green colored, thin wall PVC tubing, normally used for drainage pipes) about 15" long with a simple cap glued on the forward end and a threaded, clean-out opening on the rear end. It fits exactly into the available space and is easily and firmly supported from the rear rack mounting. I ended up with a storage that is 5 3/4" I.D. and ~15" long.

I have pictures in my file but not in a URL, so I can not post them here. I posted them on WildGuzzi, it's a lot easier there. If interested, PM me with an e-mail address and I'll send them to you that way.

That toolbox is the seeds!

Nice use of that space. I might have to pick one up. It'd be nice to get my compressor, plug kit and tools out of my side case.

Thanks for posting.

I am with you Sockmonkey. Just saunter up to the bike and step on the peg like you own it and mount up like the Lone Ranger. Much cooler than swinging a leg looking like you were about to take a piss.

But then again the Guzzi has a decent side stand, if I had done that on the Dakar half the time I would have landed on my back with the bike on top of me.

Depends on the retailer. Some do the work for you and don't charge you if it's destined for the US, others just charge everyone VAT and you get to fill out the form(s) and send it in to get the $$ back. I've run into both types.

Anyway, moot point. Twisted Throttle doesn't plan to carry them, so it's direct from MyTech or not at all.

A month ago I ordered a pair of Vendramini boots from Italy. FedEx held them in Memphis until I gave them my import number or ssn. I gave them my ssn and received a few weeks later a bill for $56USD for import duty fee.

I'd like to get the 3YTech box but I don't want to pay an import fee.

Also, the lowest point of the 3yTech box looks to be only 3-4" above the top arm of the CARC. That doesn't seem to be enough clearance to me, but, they must know what they are doing, right?

I kind of limp over to the bike, step on the peg with my left foot, swing my right leg over and say in my best John Wayne voice..."Mount up pardner."

First TB Balance and TPS Reset

Well, the first service on the NTX is about done. Oil changed and most checks done. Now to do the TB and TPS. After doing some reading on Guzzitech I have orded the Centurion S unit. Most likely will need some input to get things sorted out when it gets here. If anyone has used this tool and has tips or advice on setup or operaton I would appreciate hearing from them.
Thanks

Use the postal service instead. The import fee you paid was very likely just a FedEx fee, not a US import duty. FedEx and UPS are pretty well known for their relatively steep import brokerage fees.

If we can get at least a half dozen committed buyers, I'll bring over some of those MyTech tool boxes and we'll save on shipping.

Note that they make them for a bunch of different bikes, too.

Thanks for the info James.

Are you concerned about the bottom of the 3yTech box being too close to the CARC arm?
