    Hi guys!! :wave

    I am starting a group buy for a Unifilter pre filter for the Tiger 800s and 800 XCs. I can also add some for other bikes in the order but you are in charge of getting me the link. I am NOT a vendor or any sort, just another biker trying to save others and myself some time and money on shipping. :D

    I am located in the Bay Area. I work in Santa Clara, go to school in San Jose, and live in Milpitas. So you are in the order, you can either pick up the filter from me, or i can ship it to you at your own cost. I prefer that you pick it up if possible to avoid going to the Post Office but either one works.

    The group buy will be open until next Sunday, January 12th, 2013, giving you all 10 days to decide if you want in! Once the date is closed, I will get a price for shipping and the filter and divide it evenly with the inmates interested. Before I order, I will need a Paypal payment for the amount. I know it is a small amount of money, but for a college student paying his way through school... $30 goes a long way. :D I will sending PMs of the email for the Paypal. Please don't send until the group buy is closed because shipping will most likely vary based on the number of filters. So upon everyone paying, i will place the order and giving shipment updates on here if they give me any. :dunno

    Feel free to post any questions or concerns in here to avoid repeating. If you want in, say so in here, no need to PM me. :deal

    Thanks and safe riding!

    I'd be interested, but I am in Seattle, WA area. Not sure what the shipping cost from the Bay Area would be, but it might not save me any money to go this route. Any idea?

    Shipping is $16 from Aus. And is the same from the Bay Area to Seattle :D So I would say, you wouldn't be saving much... Unless you plan to ride down this way? :D

    hey yoyo,

    let me know if you are still doing this. pm me with payment instructions and when you expect to get the pre filters.

    might also have better luck on the numbers of folks interested if you posted directly in the 800xc farkles thread.

    thanks.

    Yep still running! I will probably wait another week or so... unless someone is in a rush... I'd like to get more people. The more the merrier!

    I don't mind shipping to anyone but you pay for the box and shipping. Once i close this thing, Probably next Sunday, then i will be calculating everyones shipping and such. Upon receiving everyone's Paypal... I will place the order! :D

    I need one of these filters for my XC, but have no idea if the Group Buy helps me since I'm in Michigan. Please let me know costs and I can make a decision from there. Thx.

    As previously mentioned, I will ship which ever way you'd like. My zip is 94536. So check and let me know if you're in. My guess is though that you might still save some.

    If you ship it to me via USPS, it will be pretty cheap, so I'm in. Just let me know when it's closed with a total and I'll PayPal the money.

    Thanks.
