Up to 451 Euros with a few hours to go, I wonder if the winning bid will go higher than our group buy?

Of course I was watching and would have tried to buy it, but once the price got to close to what the Race Tech was, then the cost savings just isn't worth it. With the Ebay one, your taking a chance w/ springs and having to make preload spacers the right size. This would have to be at least $200 cheaper for me to consider it. It passed that price a while back.

Betcha it hits over the new Race Tech price.... I bet it goes for way over $650 USD, watch what happens on the last 30 seconds, it's gonna skyrocket, just sayin'

Looks like HH Racetech needs to spend more money advertising their products :-). As far as I know, HPN didn't make these cartridges, they just put them in their bikes. It's the power of branding.

Holy sheit, I figured max would be $750, I would have been willing to give $375 maybe a little more. Man would have thought is was a Barret Jackson Action.

Hope one of you guys weren't dumb enough to drop that kind of dough!!! STUPID!!! Sounds like the stereotypical BMW rider. And here I thought airhead guys were cheap....


At the beginning of the listing I had emailed the guy on shipping fees, he said about $100 Euro to the USA, and the bike did have a 43l tank, so spring rates would have suited me.

I threw in my bid too but my limit was $350.
I once tried to buy a used rear wheel (in OK shape)l for my GS on eBay and it sold for higher than full retail for a brand new one I checked the availability with a dealer and Germany had plenty on hand.

You just can't figure out stupid

I've been lucky enough to be on the receiving end of that kind of bidding, kind of makes one feel guilty of the price.......well not for too long. Well sure the seller is ecstatic!!!

In my email to the seller, I told him that it would probably go high. OH well good for him


Reminds me of the legendary "Pikes Peak BMW".....but that guy was a tool, he was trying to hype up something to promote that type of bidding. Ya win some you loose some......
