Alright Fella's, here is the list of shipping. Before we get there, some things of note.

1 - The "E" series T-Handle fits ALL bikes EXCEPT the DRZ-"S" model. Norm Kouba found his normal T-Handle was a little short for the DRZ-E, and now machines his normal T a little longet to accomodate ALL bikes. If you have a YZF/CRF and you have an "E" series, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT ONE!!

2 - I hope you all recognize Norm for cutting us a deal. His min order is $25.00. Each T-Handle is $16.00/apiece.

3 - I HAVE NOT put a downpayment on a BMW SUV with "All the profits" I made. With the tremendous amount of hours and resources I have spent on this T-Handle thing, I could have rebuilt my entire house! Maybe I can get a set of handlebars. :)

4 - Norm ran out of T-Handles, we wiped him out! The "S" was the biggest problem.

I gave away MY T-handle, and a gift T-Handle that was never claimed to Wis, Jas. I have to order another for myself.

5 - I will GLADLY do all the footwork for locating accomodating businesses/distributors for deals. This time around, HOWEVER, I WILL NOT be doing all the packaging myself. AIN'T worth it. This Sidewinder Sprocket thing looks like a wash. I will try and contact AFAM or Renthal or ??? to wheel and deal us some sprockets/chains.

6 - I DO NOT work for Norm Kouba or any motorcycle related business.

7 - I plainly stated I would place the order Friday, January 25, 2002. Apparently some folks did not read that. A blizzard shut down the post office on Friday, Feb 01. I was at the post office on Saturday at 11:20am. It closed @ 11:00 am.

8 - For you guys that want to do this yourself, CONTACT BRYAN BOSCH before you make your deals. TT IS Bryan's business. We cannot afford to displease Doug Dubach who IS OUR SPONSOR. We do not want a conflict of interest.


These guys do not have their t-handles going out. I have ordered the rest from Norm and should receive them ASAP:

Great work Kevin,

I was one who got a t-handle in the original batch, but I reckon you deserve a beer for every t-handle you package and ship... :D

Need a drinking buddy? :)

Do you have kids? they can always be put to work with stuffing things in envelopes and licking stamps... :D

Mr. Big, :)
The T-Handle fits semi-permanently over your pilot (fuel) screw. Instead of using those stupid little screwdrivers to adjust your fuel screw, you just reach under your float bowl and do a QUICK adjust and away you go.

This T-Handle STAYS in place.

If you want one, punch up www.koubalink.com.

I did this as a one time favor (that turned to a two time favor) for Thumpertalk members as a personal "Thankyou" from me for providing insight on my bike and the comraderie this sight has provided.. :D
