I Got An Idea

do a group buy on speedo healers. alot of guys on the site want to get one just dont wanna pay 80-100 bucks for an electronic dohickey to fix their whatchamacallits. basically cause we dont pay much attention to the fuggin speedo while hittin the twisties. however if we could get them for say 50 bucks i bet alot of guys would come off of the moola to get one. just food for thought

Riding straight is boring.

Doubt they'll come that cheap but I could not say no to $50.00 for sure.
Let's see what happens.

Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.

Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'

Yeah, this is definitely on my mod list...especially since I bought a 16 tooth CS. Honestly & Realistically, I'd pay like $60-$65 shipped for one if we got a GB, but yeay $80-$90 is ridiculous!

I think Todd at Cal Sportbikes has the best hook up for SH, but don't count on $50. I think when I got mine from him in a GB it was $70 shipped.

Email him if you get enough interest. http://www.calsportbike.com/

I believe that this is a must conversion if you change your gearing as you will bring the actual milage up on your bike if you do a lower gear change(especially for resale value..your losing money in the long run). Not exactly sure but believe it's true..and if so...don't look for good group buys...this is a must buy..so supply and demand is there...and if you did a gear change you just increased demand...because it's a must for many reasons.

Well I emailed Cal Sportbikes and this is what they had to say regarding discounting the SpeedoHealers:

"As the US importer, we do not discount the units as we cannot undercut any
of our dealers. As these units are imported from Europe and the Euro is
still beating up on the US dollar, there are not big margins for our dealers
from which they can give up discounts. And just FYI, the closest competitor
(Yellow Box) is not only over 10% more expensive but is not plug-and-play,
and is less accurate and harder to configure.

So I'm afraid I cannot be of assistance in this regard."

So, it doesn't look like they will be able to help us , but maybe another sponsor would ...Honestly, if we could get a group of about 10 or more people and a price of $70-$75 shipped, I think most would jump on the opportunity; I know I would.
