I'm a machinist who works on CNC Swiss Screw machines. I could've made some but frankly, I like having the security screw because I sometimes leave my Zumo 550 on the bike if I'm not far from it and just don;t want someone to be able to easily swipe it.

What I did with the OE-supplied tool is just slid it into a piece of shrink-wrap tubing (for wiring) and heated it up. It shrunk nicely around the knurl, then I used a razor blade to part the tubing where the two pieces unscrew. Lastly, I added it to the bike's key fob, so it's always handy and doesn't mar the headset's finish.

No spamming in the regular forums..

If you're selling, you must do so in Vendors where this thread has been moved.

This one takes you to a post on ST Owners Group where you can click the "Add to Cart" button to order one. The shipping cost will cover 1 to 8 of the screws

This thread is pointing you to the same spot Jim...

Should be the next few days... He has the first ones made but just like the Zumo Screw he has sent it off to be Torture Tested... The 26xx series screw is being tested out by Curt Grand who was a Rider in the IBR last year... When Curt says,,, they are good,,, Kevin will start making in bulk and shipping...

You can ask Kevin directly... I am just a guy who wanted an affordable,,, well made,,, great material,,, better than the rest screw,,, and was willing to buy 100 if Kevin didn't sell at least 100... He is well over 300 so far so,,, I am off the hook... Ask Kevin any questions here...
