Wow! It works awesome!! Bought the tool in the first buy and it sat in the box until now. Kinda of an impulse buy but if it makes changing tires easier what the heck.

I pulled the old Dunlop 908 off my 950 SE rim with protectors, tire irons and usual effort. Then pumped some air into the new tube coated with baby powder and put the disc side first into the tire spinning the nut a couple turns onto the stem to hold it.

I pulled the new tool out of the box to check it out and stuck it in the axle to test fit and less then 2 minutes later the tire was on and I was standing there sweat free with lots of unused expletives wondering how the tire went on so easily. Seriously.

.....and NO scratches on that pretty black rim!

Thank you for all your hard work on this project!

Personally if you take a few weeks to ship them from your house because you have life going on I am fine with that. I did nothing more than say I wanted one, sent some funds and you did everything else and for that I thank you. For me it will arrive when it arrives and I am good with that.

I'm closer to Estonia than I am America right now anyway. Take your time.

As long as I've got mine by 4/26 I'll be happy, no tires to change in the mean time.

Seriously. Don't kill yourself trying to get these out. It will get here when it gets here.

Thanks again for your hard work and time.

Now, all the guys above who said it didn't matter when they got them? Good, put them all at the bottom of the ship list.

Hey now! For the record, I am VERY eager to get mine. I just feel like PMR has been busting his butt to make this thing happen, and I would feel like a huge asshole if he stayed at work until 2am to ship these out.

good deal, I've enjoyed using it also. I can do it now without the pusher even touching the rim (wouldn't want to scratch that KLR wheel)

It will be a couple days at the most when I get them, you guys paid up quick, I'll ship quick. Plus, I'm a task-oriented dude, hard to sleep when I've got a project going on.

why didn't you say so, you could have just run up there on the weekend and picked 'em up for us,.. but I'm guessing you're not coming home anytime soon, be safe (and your tool will be waiting for you when you get here)

I'd rather stay at the office late and get this deal done, rather than spend a weekend doing it - I could be doing something else while the weather is so beautiful, like riding a motorcycle,...

and there's been no "butt bustin" hardest part is just keeping up with the emails and worrying that the order will get screwed up. Mainly it's just "waiting" like the rest of you FF's

Any chance of you posting the latest version of the list, so I/we can check and make sure things are ok with our payments?

Never mind, found it back there on page 41.

I think the last set of boxes have been shipped, I sent an email yesterday about adding to the order but never heard back. I won't know what I have until I get everything in and sort it out. Shoot me an email and I'll let you know either way.
