I now have enough material to make 15 reinforced 14 mm pivot pin sockets. These sockets will not expand or break when you loosen the pivot pins on the swing arm. The cost of the socket plus the machining will be about $35 ea. I will sell these at my cost plus shipping. I do not need any more sockets for myself so start your own list.

I have seen Dave's reinforced sockets in action. His bikes, my bike, somebody else's bike. They have never failed to remove the pivot pins, damage-free, I might add.

These sockets will take a little longer to make than the 30 mm cut out sockets. The reinforced sleeve is made out of ETD 150 steel & there is machining & honing involved to achieve the high press fit. I ordered 20 sockets today & I have to wait until the 30 mm sockets are done before I can have the pivot pin sockets made. I'm looking at about 3 or 4 weeks for these sockets.

I have a pay-pal account & I'll send everyone the info when they are ready.

Update, I just received the 14mm sockets today (they were on back order) . These are high quality USA made impact sockets. I hope to get the sockets & the reinforcing material dropped off at the machinist this Sunday. I should have a better idea of when they will be ready to ship early next week.

Count me in Dave.
