Decomp plugs, please read

The last run of decomp plugs are sold out. I expect to have more in 7-10 days.
The new plugs will be type II hard anodized in blue, some of you already have some of the samples the anodizing shop did for me. The anodized plugs look better, will resist staining and have a slightly harder surface. I'm also in the process of having the lip seals made, they will add about $3 to the price ($5-6 from Yamaha)and be available in 3-4 weeks. That is the good news......
Bad news is that there are too many folks who haven't paid on the honor system or paid with NSF checks. Repeated attempts to contact these individuals have failed. A BIG thanks to all who have paid.
The new plugs will be $10 and pay with money order or Paypal up front.

These plugs have been blowing out leaving riders stranded with an oil mess and a open hole in the front of their engine. There have been a few reported on the 04's but the problem is mainly with the 03's and the 98-02 bikes that have the 03 cam installed.
I have an 02, 426, did the cam mod and installed the 03 rubber plug and had it blow out. The aluminum decomp plug solves this problem.

I sent a PM to Brian or Steve right up front asking them if there was a problem with selling the plugs on TT. I'm unfamilliar with the rad braces sale so I can't comment about that.
I had no idea the plugs would be this popular. If you figure in the time I spend on this and what I sell the plugs for I'm making about $.07 an hour. Believe me, I would much rather send a bunch of them to the TT store and let them sell the plugs.

just my .02"
The Provisional Patent I hold on the decomp plugs is for sale if White Brothers (or anyone else) would like to purchase it.
Any one interested in paying $29.95 for a decomp plug?

Please PM me with your name and address that way I don't have to chase everyone down. Once I get the PM I'll put you on the list and PM you with payment info when the plugs are ready to ship.
I Talked with the CNC shop yesterday, the plugs will be shipped to the anodizing shop on the 26th, the anodizing should take 3-4 days so I expect to have the plugs in hand around the 1st.
