    Post Good Buys HERE

    Ok, someone suggested I start this thread after noticing I've been posting a bunch of sales in the forum, so here we go. If you find a good buy, just add it to this thread.
    Sometimes good buys come back, so maybe some of these will revive.. if not it can be a good reference for what it has gone on sale for in the past.

    To start this thread off, I came across the Honda 10mm Push Rivets. these were over $10 for 25 not long ago so this is a pretty good price drop at $6.78.

    Amazon.com: Honda 10mm Hole Plastic Push Rivet (Qty:25) Gripper Box # 2184T: Automotive

    Seems these are always getting lost or broken and if you take the plastics off your bike often you will need some of these around
    on NC700x, also have a VFR 750

    My 2015 NC700X was a great. I got almost $2300 off list price. New in the crate.

    Getting tired of dual-sport gloves with synthetic leather/clarino that scuffs away in klingons, and that have less protection than these... I snagged some real durable leather well-suited to off-road and ADV. Nice. Grip well and give good feedback, seem to be very tough too. A.R.C.

    I thought PBR was cheap.



    But it's not. However, this time around I thought I'd get a real quality chain tool that does it all so I didn't mind paying more. I consider it a good deal in spite of the cost. Here's a LINK: PBR Chain Tool

    10mm?

    That is one huge rivet...I think most of the push pins on my NC are about half that diameter.

    Where are these used?

    The two best cheap things I bought for the bike were mirror extenders to see a full unobstructed view behind me - an issue for some of us.

    Ebay, <$11. Search for "10mm mirror extenders" and pick a seller

    And, rubber throttle grip thingy...

    Post Good Buys HERE-31e8tsmsxzl-_sx466_-jpg

    Due to wrist and hand nerve issues I need a throttle rocker/wrist rest. I have been using a Cramp Buster for ages but find it a little big and bulky. The rubber one is just the right size and works great.

    I just mine from Ebay as well - about $6
    Here is the link, but search for "Universal Hand Grip Rubber Throttle Motorcycle Cruise Control" if that auction is dead.

    One for the Canadians. This is the ratchet set that I use. Has the 27mm included. I paid full price ($80) and my only beef was the pricing at the time. Couldn't find a set this good close to the price so bit the bullet. Going on sale June 13 for $45.

    Weird...I just bought one of these on Amazon. I must have watched 10 videos before settling on this brand/model. Glad to know someone else in our circle made the same choice. Now we'll see if we were both smart or if misery just loves company, LOL.
