Is it Time for Another Wossner Group Buy?
« on: September 13, 2018, 09:09:54 PM »
I've had a couple of members reach out to me recently inquiring about piston kits.  I'm going to check with Wossner about current prices and will update here.  The more we buy, the less they cost.  So if anyone was or is thinking about pistons for their R/RS model 3XV, with domed top pistons, please chime in.  As of now, I may be looking at 4 to 6 piston kits, which is probably the minimum they will make for a "custom" order.

Thanks for organizing this. Iíd want four (4) kits if we can get the price close to what I saw last year.

Iím on my phone. More, later.

Good luck to us all.

Heard back on prices from Wossner.  For small quantities, the prices are about the same as last time inquired.  Bulk order prices down a bit. (-P)

4-7 piston kits = $190.00
8 to 15 piston kits = $180.00
16-19 = ? did not provide  ::)
20-49 piston kits = $136.25

Prices are USD and WITHOUT any coatings.  Don't know that I would bother really!  Coatings will be extra (price on request) - have not inquired

Kits include - 1 piston, 2 rings, 1 piston pin and 2 pin clips.

Extra ring sets are available (price on request) - have not inquired

Wossner ships everything to me and I'll ship to your door, which will add a bit more, but I'll send USPS (typically very affordable) with a low value, mark as used, etc...whatever you want, your risk.  USPS has never lost anything on me yet.

Previous orders I've asked for 1/2 upfront in ensure i'm not left hanging with a bunch of pistons that folks backed out on.  Suspect I'd do the same here.  My pal that owns R&D Motorsports lets me use his business to order these, I'm an employee there  ;)

Ignore PM I've literally just sent.
Stick me down for a set and I'll get the bike finished properly.
Thanks Mark.

So it looks like eight -8- kits so far.  We are a long way away from 20 still, where the big savings are, but there are always some late requests, so I'm gonna let this run a bit longer before placing an order.

ORDER UPDATE:

Steveog - 4 kits - 2 extra ring sets
Hoatso - 4 kits
ukblade - 2 kits (you said set, so I assume you want two piston kits)
Crank - 2 kits (you also said set, so I assume you want two piston kits)

I'll email Wossner tomorrow and get costs on extra ring sets.

Please correct me if I've made a mistake, or forgotten someone.  That's got us at 12 kits at the moment.  I'm hoping we can get a few more folks interested and can get the numbers up, and prices down.  I may buy another kit myself, just cause I know as soon as the delivery arrives, someone will message me for an extra set.  ::)

Thanks for all your work on this, Jim. Per your earlier statement, ďYouíre expecting half of the fees upfront and the balance before you ship our orders?Ē

Please PM me with what I owe, once you get Wossners feedback.

Steve

Ive got a pair here still in the Wossner box with new genuine head gaskets ready to post.  200 pounds for the pistons and 64 pounds for the gaskets. Not trying to profit from them, just want  my money back.

Got an update from Wossner on ring prices

Extra rings are $15 per ring, so $30 for a set of two (2)

USD of course

Thanks, Jim. Thatís a good price.

Keep my order, as is.

Edit: I need four sets (4), not two (2) as I originally requested. Sorry for the confusion.
