    Updated 28.01.13.

    I have sent further pm's to those who expressed an interest in the thread but have yet to confirm. If anyone can reach them, yet to confirm is Monterey_BS . Renner is away on holidays and will make contact on Monday. Walkingbear will contact directly as he is still thinking about it.

    Confirmed totals so far...

    For the Extreme 50mm (Conventional)

    1. GESII (with stem pressed)
    2. Mendjoe (49mm is possible?... with stem pressed)
    3.CDubs (with stem pressed)
    4. Ras Thurlo (with stem pressed)
    5. Ras Thurlo (no stem, but anodized)


    For the 4860's (USD)

    1. Beater (has a stem and would like it pressed)
    2. Clay Spinner (with stem pressed)
    3. Clay Spinner (with stem pressed)
    4. Chadleys1 (longer stem from a 950 adv if possible))
    5. Castironmeyer (with stem pressed)
    6. philgunn (with stem pressed)
    7. Andy frizzle (with stem and lowers for 43s)
    8. Andyfrizzle (with stem and lowers for 43s)
    9. Ras THurlo (no stem, but anodized)

    I've also seen mention of a steering stabilizer and assorted bits. I'll list those interested here though I understand people are waiting for a price.

    As time is ticking I wanted to push this along... I'm waiting to hear from 2-3 people yet but I figure its not fair to drag things out as Guy has given us a potential window of opportunity to make this happen. Therefore, I propose that I'll email guy the list of confirmed orders this sunday evening (remember I'm on UK time, GMT). I am expecting to hear back from two people imminently as they had a few questions that they wanted answered first. I've keep my totals list post updated so won't copy it all again. I just wanted everyone to be clear on how I was doing... any objections please see the manager. (she's doing the ironing now so please give it at least an hour before calling!) :D

    Clay Spinner,

    Following the PM;

    I've confirmed with Guy that he is making clamps for the WP 43mm USD forks, as he stated in his original post.

    Please put me down for 2 x sets of clamps (with new stem pressed in place, Stem Top bolt/washer and hardware).

    Many thanks

    Andy

    That makes three for the damper and 'bits'. Heck... I'd go in as well to make it an even number. If nothing else... at least the hardware!

    To clarify on the parts needed for a Scotts damper installation:

    1) BRP Sub Mount:
    http://www.advrider.com/forums/showpost.php?p=16239726&postcount=45

    2) Guy's Tower Pin Bracket: This is only the bracket that holds the tower pin. He's already spread thin with many projects, so we need confirmation that Guy can take this on too.

    3) Scotts Damper and 4) Tower Pin

    For me, I already have a Scotts Damper and Tower Pin, and the BRP Sub Mount is just a phone call away. The harder part is Guy's Bracket for the tower pin.

    Thanks!

    I'd be happy to make the pin towers for the damper setup, I'm out of stock on the shelf so I need to make some anyhow.

    If we could get a list of who is interested in the SUB mount and damper I could get a quote for that as well. Don't know how competitive I will be, but could give it a go. Many sellers seem to find a way around Scotts minimum pricing without getting dumped as a dealer.

    Those who are interested can find a link to a previous example HERE. As various people have expressed interest in the fitting bits with and without the actual damper, if peeps could clarify what they may be after it should help hpmguy be more precise in what he needs to do/buy/make etc etc.

    You can reply via pm to see and I'll compile another list.

    Thanks.

    2. Mendjoe (49mm is possible?... with stem pressed)
    3.CDubs (with stem pressed)
    4. Ras Thurlo (with stem pressed)

    Looking forward to getting this project rolling!

    It had an electric short as much as I can tell. It happened Superbowl Sunday about 20 minutes before the game. My liability insurance won't cover it so oh well.

    Do not see a pm

    Ok, so we lost a few people...and then we gained a couple new ones as well, so the quantities ended up close to where we started. I am still awaiting a few stragglers with their deposits, but am ordering the material for this project tomorrow anyhow. As soon as I get all of the promised deposits in hand, I will order the stems and hardware.

    The material is a small part of a large order that will be coming by truck, so will be at least a week for delivery here. I will update you all when I start work on them.

    I will be making enough pin towers for all who need them for the Scotts installation.
