    I have another set of tires to put on next week. I'll take some pics then. I can say that it will take longer to snap some pics now than to mount a tire....lololol

    If this thing had an adapter the same size as the hole through the GS rear end it seems like you could pry off the tire, patch it and put it back on without even having to remove the rear wheel. Just leave the bike on the center stand. The only possible interference would be the exhaust.

    Anyone try this on a more stout street tire? The demo video seems to be a fairly soft compound tire.

    I get the feeling that the meat he's working with is fairly compliant too. But even still...that was pretty slick.

    The funny thing is that while watching that vid some 3000 foreign words pass through my head...but he didn't actually have to say a damn thing. want. :lol3

    118 euros = 153.1640 US dollars

    Anyone know how to do a group buy? 25% off is about $116.

    I think I still have his email, but he never got back to me when I said I wanted to buy one. I could try him again if anyone else is interested.

    PMR

    *** actually I already deleted it, but I had just contacted him thru the website.***

    Still in the wait and see mode, but If the feedback from the other group buy confirms the effectiveness of the tool, I'm good for a group purchase.
