Default No more Master Mike Spacers?

I got an email from Master Mike's stating that he is too busy and is not making the spacers anymore. Does anybody know where I could get one or a similar product?

thanks

I'm hoping my package from MM is in the mailbox today when I get home - and no, you can't have it!

There has been talk on the other Strom forum about few people taking over for MM in the US. Nothing set yet - but chances are good that it will happen.

The other option is to take your spacers off, have a machine shop mill 2mm off the one, and make a 2mm shim for the other. Shouldn't be too expensive.

Take care,
Bob S.

these guys send the stock spacer to a machine shop for a trim, then put a washer on the other side. works great . . . about 8k miles on mine since the fix. cheap too.

RE the washer.... I know from other posts that the spacer trim, and washer thickness, should be the same thickness - about 2mm.

What inner and outer diameter should the washer be?

Could anyone who has a set of spacers that are not fitted post a sketch showing all the dimensions? If that would be possible I'm sure any local machine shop would be able to produce them.

I know spacer #8 needs to be 2mm shorter and spacer #9 needs to be 2mm longer. Does it matter which side of spacer #8 is reduced and which side of spacer #9 is increased?

My set came in on Monday from MM, I'll measure them up for you if you need it, but I think you can find the answer here...

I'd say more, but I have to go look at your avatar again...
