Or the perfect time to buy another tool...it's called DealerTool!!

Yeah, yeah, I know, I know. If they sold the cable/software at Autozone or BestBuy I'd probably have it and the other program/adapter too. It's one of them 'roun tuit sitcheations.

Cush drive

So, I just put a new rear on the bike, and the found it took A LOT of effort to re-seat the sprocket carrier into the rim.

Any ideas???

Lubricate the rubber with some water? White Lithium grease?

Or, do I just need to suck it up, buttercup??

You got eBay over there, right? http://www.ebay.co.uk/bhp/vag-com-kkl-409-1 Download Tuneecu and reset the fault code. Sorted.

Check you've got the rubbers the right way round. Mine goes in easy.

Sadly, my bike only has about 6,000 miles on it. I've noticed on previous bikes, it gets easier and the cush drive rubber breaks in over time. My old ZX9r, at 16 or 20k miles had a cush drive rubber sufficiently "experienced" there was slop in it, and putting in the sprocket carrier would result in a thud as the spacer hit the bearing

But yeah, I am pretty sure it is in there correctly, won't fit if you flip it over (IIRC that is).

hmmm.

OK, just throwing it out there as I did it once but realized before I tried to fit the sprocket carrier.
Other than that just try a bit of loob.

Rubber lubricant

So, on another forum, one of the motoheads there suggested I look for Ru-Glide. He uses it for everything where there is a tight rubber fitment, including cush drives.

And, best of all, for the lazy, available at Amazon

I use Ru Glide for tire mounting. Wish I had had it when I mounted my E07s. Works great for tires. Its available by the gallon at Napa!

I use some stuff that's used to ease assembly of the seals on plastic guttering. Probably very similar.

eBay was all good 'till they demonized money order purchases a few years back in order to promote Paypal use. I'm a cash guy, no credit cards and no debit cards, not even ATMs are on my radar. So I don't play well in polite commercially digitized society. All this Luddism, despite being a System Administrator for 17 years, or, perhaps because of being one.

I bailed on eBay/PayPal when they insisted I get one of their credit cards or link my bank account to my PayPal account. Like that's going to happen

Fuck 'em, like every other business, they just go greedy.

OK, understood, as you were.

I look on it as they're making it easy and seamless. After all, your bank account is linked to all sorts of things these days.
Also, could be that we have better safeguards in law over here. Such as the "Distance selling regulations".

I bet it's not

I don't miss eBay/PayPal one bit - eBay used to be great for getting good stuff cheap/second-hand but now it's just a place to buy cheap shit. That said, I'd probably still use it if they didn't insist on PayPal as the only payment method.
