EDIT: Don't sweat it SD... I just picked up a set of front/rear spacers off fleeBay right now.... I don't want to deprive you of your scooter this time of season. :) Hopefully this time next week I'll have some G4 sets I can start shipping out. :)
Awesome. I'll hold off on pulling my rims then.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.

No worries buddy... I like having the axles in my hand anyway to make sure the fit is spot on. :) I'll let you know when I get the first few sets made... I just needed an example on what the captive lip size needed to be to make it work, and SD covered it. :)

FWIW, beer money was included in the cost of materials. 1 beer per pair of spacers, but I don't drink cheap beer... and 7075 is a little more expensive than 6061... but it's worth it for the awesome mechanical properties. More worth it for awesome beer. Yup.

You do some good work. I'll definitely be picking up a front set when you're ready.

Weeelll, rear axle showed up a little sooner than I thought it would. :)

Here is a set of rear captive spacers for the Gen 4... with my little "improvements". If it's all right with you SD, I'll ship this set to you and you let me know if the improvements are worth a damn. If so, I'll start cranking out some more. And you're more than welcome to keep these for your trouble. :)

Let know how they work compared to traditional captive spacers.

Curious what you mean by "traditional"? This is typically how captive spacers work and most certainly just like all the ones I've seen. Having the "upgrades" (chamfered leading edge, wider retainer rim, material, etc) to the design all in one though are hard to find. These should be top-notch.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
