Fellow MV.net members, I have our first offering for a pre-production group buy on ignition covers. Theses are the small case covers that are on the clutch side of the bike and have the "F4" on them. These protect the left side of the engine since this is the point that protrudes the farthest on the engine cases.

Here are the details of how this will work:

In order for these to be produced we need to meet a minimum order quantity if that quantity is not met, they will not be produced. As with everything the more that are ordered the cheaper they will be. I will pass that savings on to you directly. They price I post here will be the maximum cost you will pay, any unforseen costs I will cover. If I can get a better price I will absolutely pass it on to you and you will know how much it will cost you when you pay. I will give you the lead time for completion and keep you updated on the progress. If you are interested in purchasing these I will need for you to respond to this thread with how many you would want, your color preference and an alternate color. I will do my best to meet your color choice. Once we have enough commitments to place the order I will ask for a 50% deposit with the remainder due once they are completed and ready to ship. Everyone who orders is guaranteed to be happy with the product. If you don't like what you recieve simply send it back and I will refund your money no questions asked.

Ignition case covers (fit both f4 and Brutale):

They will be machined out of billet 6061-T6 aluminum and color anodized. The Corse USA logo will be engraved on the front of the case as shown in the first picture after anodizing. It will utilize the standard o-ring and mounting hardware, if there is enough demand I can try to put together a group buy on Ti fasteners but that will be seperate from this purchase.

Cost:
We need a minimum of 25 orders in order to recieve this price.
Price is $114 dollars which is the least expensive cover on the market (that I can find). This price includes four color anodizing. I am thinking that the most popular colors are going to be Black, Gold and Red. I can do Silver or another color such as Blue Again based on demand.
If we can get enough orders to get 50 made, I can get the price down to $80 per cover so if this is something you are looking to buy jump in now and everyone benefits.

The pics;


Here is a representation of the cover with the final engraving.


Case cover in silver, note the colors are only representation and the final color will vary.


Here it is in red angled so You can see more detail.


In black

In gold, again the color is just an example there will be variance.


And finally blue.

The lead time I have right now is 3-5 weeks after the order is placed. What I would like to do is see if we cant get this order in quickly. So please post up If you would like one or more (please specify), what color you would like and a second choice, it doesn't have to be a color listed here but I am limited to a handful of colors for anodizing. When there are 25 people who have comitted to purchase I will PM you for the deposit. If there aren't enough interested buyers by June 23 I will close the buy and the covers will not be produced. This price will not be available after the order is entered so order early and save.
Thanks Guys!

I will be adding this to the website shortly to try and get more people to buy. The more people that sign up, the better price I can offer.

I'd certainly love to hear any feedback, positive or negative about this in order to facilitate these group buys. Ultimately my goal here is to add product to my line at a reasonable cost and this is a great way to do it while offering some good discounts. Also, the benefit to presenting products in this fashion is that it is not final and can be changed based on your input, so I really encourage everyone to do so especially those that aren't enclined to participate so I can maybe taylor these products for you as well. Again, feedback is appreciated.

Only 24 more to go!

Well guys it is getting close to decision time, so I will put this out there and see what the response is. The original deadline set is this coming monday the 23rd. As it stands now, there are 9 people commited and we need 26 more to reach the 25. I'd really like to get these made for no other reason than to get some products that I've made into your hands so that you guys can spread the word on the quality of the product. As I've said, I will stand 100% behind my products, so if you aren't satisfied for any reason I will refund your money. With that said, if we can get another 9 people (18 commitments) I will have the parts made and honor the 25 piece price. If this doesn't happen I need to know what those of you that want the cover would like to do. I can keep the deal open indefinitely; however the price may change due to manufacturing cost increases. The other option is to let the deal die here on the 23rd. So for those interested please sound off either here or by pm as to what you would like to do.
Thanks,
Rob

First of all I want to take a minute and thank everyone who expressed interest in the group buy, I appreciate the show of confidence.

At this time I am officially closing the group buy. We did not get the 25 people together to meet the minimum order for the production run. I have been working to get these produced despite the fact that there is not the minimum order and I will try to honor the price quoted. Everyone who expressed interest in the group buy and commited to purchasing has been sent an email or private message with the changes and details for the covers. I need to hear back from everyone ASAP please.

Thanks Everyone.

I will need to know by friday who is still interested, once the order is in I will not be able to add anyone

Last call. Remember that the price is for advanced purchasers. If you have not placed your deposit when the order is made I cannot extend the pre-order price.
