I want to install spools on my 929... but I've searched and can't find any where to buy them from. Anyone know where I can get them from and shipped to the UK?

If you're worried about bling, go buy some spools. If you're not, just go down to your local hardware, or bolt suppliers and get some stainless steel bolts of the appropriate length, along with a washer and a nut to use as a locknut against the swingarm. Bolt them up and bobs yet uncle, you've got pickups! You just use the remaining threaded part that's sticking out as your spool. Works no problems at all.

That would only work on a bike that has threaded holes for spools. 929s do not.

Yeah I'm sure it would work up to a fashion. But I've got my bike looking pretty good now and would rather install the inserts and then the spools. Thanks for your reply though. :)

I got mine from Dan Kyle. He might ship to the UK. Give him a call or email.

Dan Kyle sent me this reply

We do not carry the Lockhart products.
We do have Sato Products, please see if there is anything there we can help
you with.
www.satoracing.com
I don't think Sato have the inserts though. Damn...

I've also looked into getting some rivnuts and making up a tool to fit them, but I need to buy in quantities of 100. I only need 2 and nowhere locally sells them :(

if its just the inserts you need I can sell you them. I got 6 in the package when I bought mine so I have 4 left. I just don't know how much it would be to ship to the UK but it can't be much, it would be a pretty small package.

One word of advice...measure 4x, check that you won't bump into anything inside the SA, then measure 1 more time, then cut/drill :thumb:
Why?

This would be great if you would do that for me. :thumb:

Once the inserts are installed (if I understand correctly) any M8 spools will fit and I can get them here no problem.

Have you got the tool as well to fit them?

Let me know how much you want and how to pay.

yeah I can do that. Someone PMed this morning and asked about them also. Since you asked first I'll send you 2 of them and the tool unless you want all 4?
