    Hi guys,
    Put me down for one of those, assuming we are ordering over 5.
    I'm in Australia so I'll probably be paying the same again in shipping...
    Let me know how it goes.

    Well, gang, it looks like we have enough to commit to an order of 5 if Nomad is buying 2. If you're still interested, PM me and I can collect checks and make the order when it's all accounted for.

    ***The tally***
    In!:
    Colonial Mick
    Nomad5426

    If we get to 5:

    So can anyone confirm if this will fit on a 2004 YZ250f triples?

    Hey Kainic,
    PM me a pic of your triple clamp and I'll see if it's the right kind or not. Alternatively, the triples are all interchangeable for that size fork (46mm?), so you could get an earlier one. They are cheap.

    Alright, Team.

    Sorry there hasn't been much activity on this thread in a while. I've been tallying who I've received PMs from and sending a few. The following is for a 5 (actually maybe 6) unit order.

    I've received PMs from:
    McNorris
    Clob
    Dale C

    People who have said they are interested, but I haven't heard from them (I'll send PMs).
    Nomad5326 (Maybe 2 units)
    Colonial Mick

    And again, if we get to 10 units.
    Tessitori
    WERA 456 (maybe #2)

    If everybody is in, we're at 9 units. I can have the price for 9 units quoted, I'm guessing it would be in the $150.00s. Does everybody want to go for that?

    It will be a few weeks before I get to it. There should be some pics posted by other inmates with this set-up if you look in the thread Yamaha forks on a GS

    We couldn't ever get to a decent quantity commitment for a group buy. I can get individual quantity 1 pieces for people for $275. Just PM me if you are interested.

    These are much sturdier than the flat plate design, but the cost is the trade off.

    Anyone still looking for one?

    Just asking as I will get an extra lock adapter as used for the Touratech Fork conversion next week.
    I am rather sure that you'll be able to adapt is to be used on the YZ Forks.

    Hey, I got some Parts from the Touratech Rallye Kit today, including 2 lock adapters.

    They are machined from a single piece of aluminium and usually meant to be installed on the WP fork upgrade from Touratech, but it shouldnt be too hard to adapt them to the YZ forks.

    One is already spoken for, but the 2nd one is still up for grabs.
    Should you be interested in either the lock adapter or a specific part from the Rally Kit, PM me.
