    If you looked at the last group buy here on these things, the guys threw in a few dollars extra on each tool as a thank you for Piney handling everything. It was optional, up to the buyer.

    I thought it was a nice idea and intend to do the same.

    Checked on Stromtrooper.com and Greywolf said front axle on a 2012-13 Suzuki Wee is 12 mm and rear is 14 mm. Seems that is a lot smaller than the 20 & 25 mm spacers or do they just fit in a bearing holes?

    Anyway, please add the adapters to my order. LMK how much $$ and I'll send you a check before you ship.

    Thanks again Ian, Iowa

    If there's room, please put me on the list for 2 tools and 2 sets of 15 and 17 adapters and one set of the 10-14" scooter adapters. Or please put me on the standby list if you're full-up.

    Thanks !

    got it

    got you down for 2 sets, you're on the standby list, but odds are you'll get at least 1 set on this group buy

    gotcha down for the 15 / 17. 12 mm sounded like a tiny axle LOL

    It is possible to send money via Pay Pal as a gift and that way no fees are charged, just there is no buyer protection.

    OK, I'll stick you on the "standby" list for now - we've still got a couple weeks before Are gets back, maybe we'll have enough for a 4th box and everybody on standby will get hooked up

    You guys were really generous the first go around - thank you! And everybody was very patient, it was a pleasure serving my fellow inmates.

    But anything additional is strictly voluntary, I really want to keep the cost at the lowest possible for you FF's

    I used it last nite to re-install the rear on my XR after fixing a flat. It gets easier every time, and was easier than irons on Day 1.

    WOW, just used the tool today as I had a slow leak on the rear of the R80G/S. I levered the tire bead on and couldn't help but smile as this was SO easy to use, not effort at all to get the tire on. Well worth the money, this is one cool tool. To bad it's just a wee bit large to carry on dual sport rides.
