I just bought one and thought the same thing before the kit arrived. Once you see all the parts that had to be engineered to work as a replacement, and the quality of the billet latch itself you will understand. don't forget that this isn't something he can sell thousands of, so he needs to recoup his R&D costs through a small number of units.BigH501 said:
Is it just me or is $300+ for a "latch" and obscene amount to pay. Not even going to comment on the BMW alternative
Never gonna happen. BMW so far refuses to admit there is a problem. And we can't force a recall 'cause it's not a dangerous failure.BigH501 said:BilletsGalore: I apologize. I did not realize the work that went into your latch replacement. I stand corrected.
I guess I just reacted to the price on something so small and "apparently" simple costing that much $$
Have you tried marketing your design and mfg process directly to BMW to see if they might consider replacing the latch on new production bikes ?
Accepted. Gladly accepted! If you had called me on the phone and told me you thought the price was high, I would have tied you up on the phone telling you what a GREAT deal you're getting! You're lucky you didn't have to endure that speech.....It's all good!.... :wave :waveBigH501 said:BilletsGalore: I apologize.
