I requested the 17mm
croc had apparently communicated with Are and researched a custom adapter which he would like to order if the group buy goes forward. It is 15.6 mm X 175 mm. I haven't confirmed the pricing that croc gave me with Are yet. I would prefer to not be ordering a lot of different "custom" pieces so as to keep the order "simple" but if others need that size, I'm sure we can get them done.

The order won't go thru until I send Are the money, I will be happy to post up whatever invoice he sends me. But this will be a single order with 30 +/- tools plus an assortment of adapters (not 30 + separate orders), I think the best I can do is make sure the list on post 49 = what's on the invoice.

28 units confirmed as of this evening (counting my 2).

I got a lot of email questions about the adapters today, here is how I understand it: PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG!

The tool comes with a 20 mm rod (which will fit for example, a DRZ with a 20 mm axle).
There is also a 25 mm sleeve to shim it for a larger axle.
An optional 15 and a 17 mm adapter are available for smaller axles, I'm thinking 200-250 cc dual sports / dirt bikes.
There is also an optional "pusher rod" that is shorter than the one in the kit, I'm thinking mini-bike or scooter???

There are pics in the thread showing exactly what you get when you order just the tool. Someone has posted the prices for the adapters earlier, that cost will be added to your bill.

I don't know if you could use this on something like a 990 (I have a 990 SMR and I suspect I could machine another sleeve to shim it out to 30 mm or whatever, but YMMV).

Final cost is going to be around 120 bones each, we can't get around the International shipping (about 9 bucks each unit) and my shipping to you from FL (about 11 bucks). I think I calculated $150 if I just ordered one unit for myself from Are and had it shipped to my addy in FL. Right now our quantity will fit in 2 boxes from overseas. If we get close to 40+ units then he will need 3 boxes to send over our tools, because of weight restrictions he can only put about 20 tools in a box. Now, if one of you FF's was gonna do a RTW, you could just pick them up and bring them home with you

Anyway, when we get ready to order, I will send you an email with what I am ordering for you. When you reply to my email and confirm I have your order right, I will consider that a "handshake" and will order your stuff. I will expect a check (not rubber), money order or a PP hit within 10-12 days, I was originally worried about PayPal because I didn't want all that cash going into my PP account but I've figured out a way to get it back into my checking account for when my VISA bill comes in.

Are said 7 days after payment he would ship, I don't know how long it will take for them to get to FL. The CH guys may know. I did email Kelly at MotoSports (he did the CH group buy) and he said it went smoothly.

Once I place the order I can't be responsible if you're not happy with the tool or it doesn't work on your Bling Busa or your turbo Honda mini or if it scratches your one-off gold plated KLR rims. If I screw up the shipping I will help fix it, but if the USPS screws up you gotta help me out and work on it from your end. I should get delivery confirmation and tracking, but USPS is not the most up to date tracking system. I will get these sent out to you ASAP, but it might take a week to get everybody's in the mail, I do have a day (and night job) but my office staff can help me print labels and we'll get'er done.

That's all for now, PMR out!

Note:
Ktm Adventure 990, 450, 400 all have 20mm axles. So the standard tool will fit KTM.

Good going Craig with the group buy. Suggest all buyers chip in $5.00 for your efforts. I am.

I just found a similar tire tool in the minimalist thread:
http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...+tool&page=363

I think he makes them, maybe we should se if he is interested in supplying? Keep it in the family so to speak.

I read thru most of that thread, Pete-NZ makes them in New Zealand (I guess). He uses Are's U-tube video to show how his tool works, looks basically the same. The thread mentions starting another thread and getting an idea what it would cost to ship to the US and do group buys. He's using a price of $70 before importing here. I guess he makes them by hand, about 5-6 per week. I'm trying to do this reading on my Droid, maybe someone else has read it all.

I don't have a dog in this race, anybody that wants to go this route instead (the NZ deal) just send me an email and I'll take you off the list. I think we'll still have 20+ so it won't affect the pricing much. Everybody just needs to do what's right for them.

Well dang, someone is going to get a visit by a patent lawyer. Anyway, based on the information so far I'm sticking with this group buy. I want the tool now and looks like we will get one when PMR does the buy. The folks over at CafeHusky were satisfied and I'm going with our deal.

forget any patent issues. there have been prior art (tools) just like this for 60 years. old tool maker had a similar device for setting and pulling orings he showed me. had my last name on it from 1923 or something.
