GILLES Group Buy has been decided! Click Here!

Recommended Posts

bellissimoto

GROUP BUY IS NOW CLOSED, and ALL PARTS HAVE BEEN ORDERED!

Items will ship as they arrive from Gilles.  Thank you everyone for another successful Gilles Group Buy!

 

Gilles Group Buy is BACK!  In a BIG way!  Good things come to those who wait!

This time, we are bringing back the ever popular Titanium Axle Nut and Rearsets, but in addition we are adding the AXB Chain Adjusters with built in spools, and their FXR Brake and Clutch lever set!

That's 4 items to choose from to get the respective Group Buy price!

Normally, there would be 4 different Group Buys (one for each item), but because all these popular items are from the same manufacturer, I can leverage the shipping cost across these products and pass the savings to you guys!

 

Pricing is as follows:

 

ACM Titanium Axle Nut, ACM 18-15:  Retail $89 shipped, Group Buy Price $65 shipped

AXB Chain Adjusters w/built in spools, AXB-RM04: Retail $142 shipped, Group Buy Price $114 shipped (available in either Black, or Black/Red)

FXR Lever Set, FXBL-23/FXCL-07:  Retail $242 shipped, Group Buy Price $180 shipped

Factor-X Rearsets, FXR-Y03:  Retail $430 shipped, Group Buy Price $325 shipped (available in either Black or Black/Red)

 

Note:  We need 10 parts to be sold to accommodate this group buy pricing structure for the above listed items.  You don't need to buy all 4 items, just 1 out of the 4 will do.  If you buy more than 1 item though, the total price will be EVEN LOWER because I'll only charge you shipping on one single item!

Delivery times will vary, as I have some items in stock already.  Plan on 4-5 weeks though if I don't have it.  

 

Here's all the info on the items in this Group Buy:

 

ACM Titanium Axle Nut, ACM 18-15:  Retail $89 shipped, Group Buy Price $65 shipped

This item will CURE the dreaded issue that the stock nut has jamming itself into place, causing you to grind it off when it gets stuck.  The patent pending pin-lock safety technology secures the ACM Titanium Axle Nut in place, making it bomb-proof while allowing it to be loosened faster than a split pin secured nut.  Besides being one of the safest Axle Nuts nuts on the market, it's also one of the lightest too.  It weighs just 20 grams, which is less than 3/4ths of an ounce, and is a perfect fit when using stock hardware or the Gilles Tooling AXB Chain Adjusters. 
 
It's design is inspired and derived by factory racing teams, and has been used by professional racers such as Cal Crutchlow to become a World SuperSport Champion. 
 
A product of award-winning precision engineering makes the ACM Titanium Axle Nut TUV and ISO certified, and will no doubt give your bike that ultra-premium look. 
 
M18x1.5
 
Material: Titanium ti6alv4
 
Ultra lightweight at 20 grams (less than 3/4ths of an ounce)
 
Innovative pin-interlock security w/ high locking characteristics
 
Perfectly compliments chain adjuster kits by Gilles 
 
Plastic-pin accommodates thread form and locks with friction

Simple security through interlock system
 
Easy assembly with a Included hex tool 

Unique Gilles design

You can see the locking mechanism here...a plastic threaded insert comes out and locks against the threads when you tighten the set screw on the face of the nut.  Pretty ingenious.  I've had mine on and off over 20 times now without issue.

2 axle nuts for me... One for my HP-07 and it bigger brother the FJ-09... 😁... I actually double checked and both bikes use the same axle nuts/part number... 

You might get a few more sales if you post the axle nuts/hand controls in the Tracer900 forum... These are the 2 items I know are the same for both bikes... 

The chain adjustment won't work on the Tracer900 as it's a different style... And the rearsets have totally different mount/bolt locations...

I would love to cross post this, but we're not a Vendor on that forum.  If you'd like, and you're a member there, you can put the word out that THIS forum is having a group buy on items that fit their bike, and point them to this thread.  I'm thinking that would be ok, as you're just helping out the community as a whole and letting them know where good deals can be had.

Chain adjuster work for the XSR700?   I'd like to do a spool set up for a stand rather than the pad style.  Just not sure I trust it on the right side of the swing arm.

Also do I understand right, that the set up actually adjusts in and out?   That would be nice in adjusting the rear wheel instead of backing it off, smacking the tire forward then working back again if too tight.

Yes it adjusts in and out, with a bit of slack between switching from one direction to the other.

Still, all that would need done after adjusting the axle forward, it would just be a case of lightly carefully turning the adjuster nut back the other way until the play is removed to keep pretty much exact adjustment though.  Right?

Got the adjusters installed yesterday and got the chain properly adjusted. Great product and the spools are great and get the rear up in the air real nice. Thanks @bellissimoto!

Yea piece of cake. I loosened the axle nut some and just took off the stock ones. Make sure the 2 cap screws are loose on the Gilles and just thread them on and tighten cap screws and done. I hope 10 people want the axle nut. I hate the stock one...

Working on the HF lift was a real pleasure btw.

Ugh... I kinda want 3/4 items on that list haha. Anyone using these levers? How are they compared to similarly priced options (CRG, ASV, etc.)?

My buddy has them on his 09 and they are top notch. Those brands you mention are like Ferrari or Lamborghini type comparisons imo. I have CRG’s and would be just as happy with either.

It's not until you see the Gilles product right in front of you will you be able to understand the quality and engineering. I have the axle nut and it rocks.

I have them on my XSR900 and absolutely LOVE them.  Very precise, and they feel incredible!

MORE THAN HALF WAY THERE!

Since multiple people bought more than 1 part, we really only need THREE more people (or THREE more parts), to make 10 parts in total...

Must be a sign haha. I'll just pull the trigger, not often this stuff goes on sale. I'll take an axle nut, chain adjusters in red and a set of levers.

May as well start stockpiling goodies for next season since there may not be many more nice days to ride before NJ winter sets in.

Looks like the Group Buy is a GO!!!  We got the required 10 parts commitment!

I'll be out of the shop until Monday.  Next week, I'll be contacting everyone for payment, so if you want to get in on this and haven't already, you have until next week :)

Are the  levers shorty's or are the closer to standard length?  I like the  adjustability and they look great, but I prefer  using 4 fingers. Especially on the clutch side.

They are more like 3/4 length, longer than a shorty by far but slightly shorter than a standard lever

For the chain adjusters, can the bike still be supported using the spools with the tire out? If so put me down for 1, red/black. For the axle nut, do you still torque it down to factory specs? What is the torque for the set screw?
