    All, this is not a thread for bashing inmates who already own Harmonizers, or inmates who would like to own a Harmonizer, or to promote other synchronizing tools. Be respectful of Grok's memory, and his family, or go post somewhere else.

    If the Harmonizer does come back, you can bet it will be announced here. Thank you.

    I bought as spare right after using the first one. Just to be safe in case something happened to it.
    Did not want to go back to a Twinmax or even worse - mercury stix.....

    Darn near Unobtanium now.

    Great piece of kit
    I'll always hold Grok in high regard.
    I was lucky enough to purchase one from BBY mid last year.
    As for others commenting on other balancing tools.
    Sorry fellas, not even close.

    I was lucky enough to have Mark come to my home where he showed me how to use the Harmonizer with my Yamaha Super Tenere. He adjusted it first then detuned it. Then I adjusted it. With his approval we buttoned it up. I asked if he wanted to ride the, then new to the market, Super Tenere. I cleaned up as he rode for 45 minutes. Over the next few years we talked many times but sadly never got together again. Thank you Mark.

    I helped test them when Grok first started. At one time I had 4 of them. I sold three, then bought a spare when it looked like he was not going to make more.

    Funny, none of my bikes even use them now, though I do use it on other people's bikes.

    Has there been any traction of someone buying the design and continuing production?

    On that note I'm amazed another company has not just released their version of the same concept.

    I used one of these for the first time this past weekend, fantastic piece of kit!

    Has anyone spoken to the family to see if they would be interested in bringing this back or having someone produce it for them? Unlike Stauntons or other pieces of Unubtanium, this thing has utility to a great number of folks. Would love to see this made again and would be willing to take up the cause.

    If someone has one for sale, would be interested in buying one.

    Groks daughter was monitoring this thread after his death to announce that the remaining units would be sold. Somewhere along the way she had a child, so I'm sure her life is pretty busy now.

    i was lucky to buy one from Grok's last batch here when he was still with us...
    unfortunately my harmonizer stopped working yesterday :( it was the third time i used it
    i replaced the battery for a new one and left the battery out for 1 night... but it's still on main screen (see picture) he callibrates and i can use the menu but it's not syncing nor showing RPM.

    Anyone advice what to do?

    If you can use the menu and you can calibrate the Harmonizer, it sounds like you are not getting a valid vacuum signal to the unit. Maybe try it on another bike? It sounds like a physical problem with the hose connection or with the vacuum test port on your bike.

    Just a wild guess here, but maybe something is messed up with the dampers in the lines? If you knew someone nearby that has a Harmonizer of their own, maybe you could borrow their lines to try on your Harmonizer. Otherwise, maybe Grok's daughter will see this and offer advice. I will butt out now. I have already said more than I know about it.

    If you cannot get it to work, I'd be interested in borrowing it or buying it from you. I would like to figure out how to reverse engineer one for myself.

    I'd really like to talk to the family and see if they have any interest in having these made again. I am very impressed with this tool. I'd like to do a kickstart on this product. Great tool!
