can't wait. Their products are well made, work well and fairly priced. If their engine guards are as good as the ones I had on my Wee, I will be very happy

I can sympathize. Oceancountysports has the oem engine guards on ebay for about 340. I have not seen any others advertise having the engine guards yet.

yea but my dealer owes me for a **** up they did (forgot to order the extras i asked to be installed with the bike so have to go there again and wait for them to install), so he says he will hook me up with an extra discount to 10% off i get on the bars for buying the bike there.
so it will come out to be the same or cheaper ( i plan to tell him not to charge me labor for installing them and the oem center stand i bought on ebay for much cheaper than suzuki's website)

$340? Man that's a lot money for $20 worth of tubing, $3 of flat stock, and a little welding.

Oops, my bad. I forgot they have to paint them.

Is that your agenda here now? To attack every other company that makes parts for V-Stroms?

Sounds like they identified a need, designed a product to address the need, marketed it, and set a price that covers soft and hard costs, AND, (here's the good part), turns a nice profit.

The costs are way more than materials and welding. But, in any event who cares?

It's their well respected business and they probably make a lot of money doing it.

I say great job guys.
