Joe, is there a thread documenting your build? I had no idea your ride was THAT hot-rodded. I would love to see the details. Thanx, Dave

personally i jumped at the chance to see fstsix blown valk with nitrous....we had a great time and ride ....

I'm always happy to meet nice people and see interesting bikes. The Barber Vintage Festival in a few weeks looks like my next opportunity - 80,000+ people and thousands of interesting bikes.

Yes. If there is a "Build" thread or other details that would be interesting.

I'm kinda hesitant now to offer an opinion about any product on this forum good or bad, I don't want to get capped on by the vendor. (its like Big Brother is watching!)
I hope this does not offend anyone or company.

I would just like to way in on this topic of the timing belt cover wrench...

Randakk reached out to me to try and make me a satisfied customer. Yesterday we communicated and he fully refunded the money for the wrench, which I did not ask for. In no way did I feel persecuted or demeaned for my opinions on this tool or the video which shares my opinion with the forum. Randakk was merely defending 'his' opinion as any one of us would. Randakk was not upset about the video as much as he just wanted to know that he had a customer who was less than 100% satisfied with one of his products so that he could make it right.

It is my continued opinion that Randakk offers many incredibly high quality products from carburetor kits to brake lines. It is also my opinion that he is a very nice, stand up guy who just wants to make sure that each customer is 100% satisfied with their purchase.

He did mention that he is going to make some engineering changes to the tool to try and make it work better and overcome the clearance issues it currently has. That's what the forum is all about. A community of like minded individuals working together for the greater good.

hmmmm seems to me ...all the blabber here is just to get a video remove that shows the truth of a wrench that dosnt work period ...no one owes a merchant anything after paying for a cummy product.... contact first ....bronko bought the 35$ wrebch and was disappointed in it ,,,and posted his opinion on it ..so others know what he thinks ...he was very good with his video ,,,as all his videos are and he dose ir for free ...plain and simple ...hes got all my respect and im sure most members here agree.....this wrench is no c5 like super product in any way .....it could be if it worked ..but its a complete failure ...the wrench runs into the cover
