    Given retail on a full M4 system is $1250....I would assume Yoshi to be in the similar price range for the re-do on the RS-3....but don't hold me to that. We'll negotiate the price once we get critical mass assembled.

    If we get deposits from everyone on the list, go to Yoshi, and their pricing isn't reasonable to all those signed up, we'll simply refund deposits and call it quits.
    Yes, they need a commitment of at least 25 per system. Unfortunately there won't be any sneaking in another system if the required interest isn't there. Having gone through their production facilities...they aren't in business to lose money and have a massive investment in equipment to make their parts and systems.

    People not to buy from ...ckfrdrice...TeamDutch People that I have purchased things from that were great to deal with ...Vandriver, Sam, Ziggy999, TLMike, djkoenig, N2Wheelies, CalSportbike, ET79, S Winglet, Rifleman, Sully, Danny Never, h0ssman, The Ring-in. GhostMAFIA, Speedking...I know there's more...just can't remember everyone I've bought stuff from

      Suzuki is aiming towards the oldskool fans with their TL birthday/classic bike race/new from parts TL and Slabby. Interest here for the TLS system isn't all that, but I'm sure people would buy parts. Isn't that possible, to just have TLS mids done again?

          TLS from new parts was a few years ago and was a gimmick to show they still had parts for old models. Unless I'm mistaken (happens) the birthday event was brought about from outside Suzuki, but they've agreed to participate in some form or allow TL owners to participate in an already planned event.

          In the past, Yoshimura has said if we could get 50 sets of either mids pre-ordered, they would make a run of whichever reached 50. We were never able to get close on either. When I spoke to them earlier this year, that offer was no longer on the table. The last sets of mids Yoshimura had for the TL sat on their shelves for many years and were finally sold to an unknown buyer to clear the shelves.

                    Not to bash Yosh but I would say yes...... You get one of thos Yosh's and damage it good luck getting parts for repair.... M4 Produces theirs per order and will provide any support needed... Parts ect... You cant beat that... I have had Yosh and M4 and M4 By far is my choice for the TL's///

                      or he could buy 2 sets.... then sell what extras aren't needed.

                        Seems a little extreme and not really cost effective IMHO. Hopefully part of our negotiations will be to have Yoshi produce a limited number of replacement parts for the RS-3 systems.

                            As I said in a another thread, I believe this ship has sailed.

                              I'm definite no-go this year. buying a house and the wife would KILL me! Sucks, because otherwise I would be hustling to make the extra play money. I'd really rather just fork out some dough than take the time to flip my other bike upside down and weld one together.
