Better off placing an order at pro circuit that makes 4 of us. We need a dozen to backorder. Or I guess we are assed out. My plastic is leaky.

Have you spoke with PC? Did they say they would put them on order if they got a minimum order of 12?

We'd only need another 10 people to jump on board!

Wonder if they'd do a special blue ano cap for me to match the blue ano on my KX500.

I know...I'm dreaming!

I would love a blue cap myself.

I am fixing to post my 99 build. I did blue ano on everything I could find.

Count me in for a group buy. I’ll take two

|

I’d do 2 as well.

|

10/23/2021 7:03 AM

I’ll do 2 with blue caps if possible

|

I'll take 3 red caps if you're getting numbers together. Merci'

How does this work? We all call and place an order, and when it hits 12 they make them and ship out?

I will call PC Friday.
I appreciate everyone responding.
What Kx model do y'all have?
99 kx125

Update??

I just spoke to Ryan at PC. He informed me 100 need to be ordered before any production. I didn't even bother asking about blue caps.

If anyone wants to call and verify. My connection was not great.

Almost thinking of swapping to a crf style.
What y'all think?.

I'd be down for 2 as well, if this is still a thing.

When is this group ready to make the online purchase?

This week?

Next week?

It will be the only way moving forward.

About blue caps there is no online option. Make a call. I doubt with this small number for a cnc machined part. I am sure they do in house?.

Looks like we are roughly at 15 for a count so far. We have a long ways before it hits 100

|

11/8/2021 12:46 PM

99 and 02 KX 125, 01 KX 250.

Do we get an email going or?

|

Could there be another company / machinist out there that would be interested in making their own version?

|

There has to be another option… but there is plenty of more than capable machinist that make stuff for street bobbers/ desert trucks and utvs/ guns/ etc

UPDATE:

So I did a little networking through friends on IG and was able to locate a machinist nearby who not only rides, but also owned a KX500 at one time. After speaking about our need for these KX brake reservoirs he said he'd be interested in helping us out. So I ordered all of the OEM KX brake reservoir parts and dropped the complete assembly off with him today. He said he'd be working on it after hours and he would need a month of two so he can develop a program and be able to machine the quantity we're after. From the sounds of it, his minimum order is a quantity of 25, but I believe we'd surpass that if I was to start a new thread in the main forum once he has an actual part to share a photo of and a price per each. The only other question we had were what the finishes would be? At this point we're thinking a hard anodize or mag brown Cerakote on the reservoir and a limited variety of anodized colors for the cap. Blue, black and ???

Anyhow, it'd be good to see some feedback for those that are still interested in this and if the OP would mind me starting a new thread on this in the main forum when the time comes?
