Very simple install...once I have them tested in Baja as well as on my dually commuter and some D37 bikes to prove that this thing will take some serious abuse, I will have a few freebies available for customer feedback on the ease of installation, etc...before I offer them to the public.

Pick me!!!!

I'll abuse it for ya, give some good feedback. :)

Why did'nt you route the tube between the overflow and the in-line? Looks like it would be protected better. Hey, look at that good feedback already, and I don't even have it yet. :)

:D

The grease works good enough when slowly drilling / tapping, but I still change the oil just to be safe on the bikes I've installed these kits on. They work well and hold up just fine for the long haul. It's a great mod :)

The oil screen will catch any of the metal chips.

"Why did'nt you route the tube between the overflow and the in-line?"

The fitting wasnt tight enough at that point which initially I wanted to do, so I had to turn it another quarter turn to get her good-n-tight. My first time working with NPTF threads.

Let me get the goods together then maybe we can determine some sort of contest to determine a freebie winner. I know ive got one going to a SCORE team and one going to a D37 racer...

We shall see.

I understand. :) Hopefully you can get one with long enough threads that you can use another nut to lock it in place tight.

To achieve the most accurate test results, you should definately consider a D31 racer ==========>ME! :)

Not for sale yet...they gotta be thouroughly tested first. Baja designs sells them for $80 I think, but most people here as well as myself thinks that is too expensive...Once I get the kit pieced together exactly how I want it...I will have a price.

Any timeframe on when they'd be for sale? I'm considering purchasing one soon, and was wondering if yours will be available soon?

I use chemical air line so it is oil, gas, chemical resistant as well as operable to 400 degrees. The fittings are hi vibration fittings for air brakes...

You can get this stuff anywhere, but the kit of all the stuff available from baja designs is rediculous priced and people here wanted a cheaper alternative which is what I will offer...after its proven. Just cuz it works on air actuated equipment doesnt mean it works for 1000 miles of whoops, cactus, rocks, crahses and overheating.
