I got mine. Thanks Wayne. Still haven’t figured out how to get the pdf, despite adding it to the cart and stuff.
Open the e-mail that says your order is complete. Click on the colored lettering that mentions "download", should be able to print from there.

Quick update - ABS harnesses are currently out of stock - Ray is building more and I should have them on hand to ship by mid-March (3 weeks from today). The store will let you order, but should notify you that the item is on back order (for production).

I will update here when orders ship.

Wow, now I understand why Ray keeps sending me pictures of his 200 foot yacht he keeps docked at Monaco.

Update - Due to Covid border closings to personal travel, I have not been able to get additional inventory to Wayne. Wayne tells me he sold the last one and the site automatically removes the listing to prevent a backorder situation..... which is the current situation.
I have checked into international shipping and will be sending some ABS harnesses to replenish the inventory... postal services are backed up like it's a Christmas rush every day so if you hang in there..... working on it, but may take 2-3 weeks....

I just flushed my brakes. So, if someone needs one of these I can send you mine. Just order a replacement sent to me... I can wait. No biggie.

What I don't quite understand is why the cost of the $7 cable goes up by $20 and $5 shipping by $10 for something to be sent to the same country it is made in.

I would have bought one, but beyond the fact that it shows as being out of stock and there's an explanation that it is so because there is no way to get it INTO the US.

So, that raises the question; If I am in Canada, shouldn't I be getting a discount, because it doesn't need to be shipped and traverse US customs to get it to me?

And, just for the record, I, for one would never suggest leaving the cable in place permanently because the connector is a cheap Molex and isn't waterproof.

Frank, first off there's an error in the Canadian pricing, apparently I had the ODB harness price in there..... I edited that today, thanks for bringing it to my attention. All components were purchased in US dollars, and the final item is priced in U$. To convert to C$ I did not use the full exchange rate, and if you've ever shipped anything like this with Canada Post, the cost is usually ~$20 for a flat rate envelope, but I have an account with CP and get a discount... will charge you actual shipping based on postal code... so, C$9 plus shipping, keeping it simple as I can. Send me a PM with your addy and I'll give you a quote.

Thanks for the offer. However I can't send a PM because I am newly registered here and the board won't let me. I can, however receive.

If you PM me your e-mail address (or, for that matter contact me on Facebook) we can keep this information nominally private.

Looking forward to flushing the ABS

It seems as though at this point updates have been made as well as connections. I'll clean up the off-topic chatter posts later this evening (this is a no B.S. thread).

On topic note - To be clear - this is not a get rich scheme or mass produced item - it was a project taken on by a member here to meet a need for members and owners of the FJR. It is not manufactured off shore, but individually assembled in someone's personal workshop in their own time. I volunteered the use of the e-commerce site I own as a way to simplify some of the (thankless) work and effort that goes into a project like this. The wonderful thing about our world is one can shop for and purchase items for sale where ever they like. It's ok to (politely) ask a question about pricing if one wishes on the odd chance there was a typo or miscalculation; but also know cost and shipping options are often limited based on what works best for those putting the effort into the project.

Thank you,

Wayne

I can appreciate the effort that members like Ray and hmfic Wayne make in stepping up to make positive contributions such as this abs accessory available to this band of forum fits and misfits. If it were $40 I'd still happily buy it because if and when there might be extra funds left over above and beyond the costs to make and ship, I'd consider it a great opportunity to benefit the forum's bottom line. ymmv

My post was a query - and it was polite. 'I didn't understand' why something made in Canada and shipped to the states and sold to Americans in the US would cost four times as much when sold to Canadians and shipped from Canada. I did also comment that because the connector isn't waterproof that I (for one) would not recommend it for permanent installation. That's just the electrical engineer in me commenting.

And I was right. The price was wrong and Ray fixed it.

The only person to go off the rails was (IMHO) properly chastised for his posting - in particular for posting without reading and his truly sarcastic comments - and of interest might be that afterwards he sent a PM offering to lend me his - but again he still hadn't read the goings-on and didn't recognise that Ray had offered to supply one at the proper price, shipped from his place in Ontario to mine in Quebec

As to encouraging small suppliers; You may not be aware but I run the FJR Owners group of FB with about 5300 members as well as the buy sell group. I do lots of encouraging of my own and I don't expect any recognition for the work I do and I offer kudos to those who themselves create products for the machine and community.

I had read everything and understood it perfectly. And I understood that you were a little ham handed in your dissection of a volunteer fabricator and an fjr community website coming together to fill a need for members. This isn’t a mathematical equation. It’s a collective and these are relationships. I meant what I said before, and I mean what I’m saying now. If you want to play outside your sandbox, and you want to do so for very long, you would do well to be more sensitive to the less tangible aspects of the community you’re visiting.

You may not like or follow my advice, but it’s clear that my initial response got your attention. And for that I am glad. Ride safe.

Thanks to all for the compliments and comments... yes, when you buy one you're making a small donation to FJRiders 'cuz Wayne has to put up with my crap and I know the effort he's put into making these available, and burning gas to get to the Post Office. I'm good if my costs are covered, don't even mind paying a little forward. No doubt y'all will somehow look after me if you find me on the side of the road, so I'm not worried at all. It's good value all around, so don't worry, let's all be happy.
The connector is the genuine OEM Sumitomo and is waterproof if you follow the instructions. Leave it on, leave it off, don't matter none to me, all good, you decide. The whole idea of this ABS test is to prevent you from spending a G-note on a new ABS pump if it clogs up, and it does happen. Another one two days ago in another sandbox (pre-'08 most prone).
It also ain't gonna go in a $3 envelope... done all the research for the cheapest way, if the envelope won't pass through a 20mm slot in this plastic template Canada Post has (it won't), so that bumps it up into a "package".... and we pay... they add HST and a fuel surcharge to boot. Meanwhile, I have to suck up some international shipping to get Wayne some more inventory..... and that ball is about to roll. Here's a good one, I can ship cheaper to Britain than to anyone in Canada, even if they live next door to me.
