On the Harmonizer itself. I was talented enough to apply significant force sideways against the fitting while the body of the device was braced against the dash, and the fitting on the Harmonizer itself broke.

If I was looking at medical supply stores, what the heck would I call that fitting?

Hmmm...is it one of these?

They seem to be available...in batches of 100...

They just might be available from McMaster-Carr, but if they are they are well hidden.

JJ

EDIT: Here is a link to the proper style

http://www.valueplastics.com/product..._fittings.aspx

and yes McMaster-Carr lists the the hose end parts but not eh panel mount parts.

Not having a Harmonizer yet (fingers crossed) and not knowing exactly the part you need but looking at the links you may find something with a smaller order size at www.coleparmer.com.

I bought one, and gave it to my brother as a birthday gift. I figured that I would just buy another one when the time comes...

Bad plan...

I hate to be the one but I think I should report a problem I think I have with my Harmonizer. I have one of the early ones I think. I bought it when they were only a month old or so.

When i hook it up to both carbs I am able to balance the carbs. But the idle goes quit a bit higher than before I open the vacuum screws. I guess it still works because the leak, if that is what it is, is even. My idle returns to about 700 when I remove the hoses and put the screws back in the vacuum ports. With the Harmonizer hooked up my idle climbed to just over 1000. About 1080. But it varies some.

Can I take this apart to try and see if I can fix it? Is this a known problem or am I doing something wrong?

The bike is a 1975 R90/6.

I think that this is actually the right part, in a somewhat reasonable quantity. I'm ordering a box of 25, so at least I'll be all set if I break another one...

Yeah now that I see the specs I do believe you have the correct one with the smaller barbed end.

I don't see where you can order just box of 25 - I only get "minimum order is 100"?

kbroderick, I'd like to buy 4 of yours if you'd like to reduce your stock/defray your costs. I haven't broken anything yet, but these sound fragile ...

PM me if that would work for you.

I'd also like to learn how to obtain just a few spare fittings. You gotta' figure that sooner or later something is going to break.

That said, I handled the short-term spares situation another way... A guy over on the Super Tenere forum posted his practically new, used twice "Harmonizer" for sale, and I snapped it up. I carefully packed it away in a safe place so it can wait there should my first one ever have any hiccups.

It's one of the best tools I've ever run across, and I don't mind having two of them at all. Hopefully Grok will one day figure out a good way to get 'em back in production.

. . . about not ordering one beforehand . . .

In for TWO if they come back into production. For my KTMs and my father-in-laws oilheads.

Harmonizer

I'm in the market for a harmonizer for R1200GS/A. I have scanned this thread light, determined I want one but it appears they are no longer available new from Grok? What's the story????
