castle nut sockets



I will be making a socket for an Aprilia swingarm axle.

If you might like one I can offer a fair price making more than one.

$20.bucks plus the socket cost.

Very nice, as the dealer socket (OEM) are upwards of $60.00 and better.

once set up making them is just a matter of a carbide cutter and knowing the size of the castle width.
If there's a size you may need let me know. Now's the time.

Yeppers. I made a few a year or two ago. Everyone I car pool with to the track has one. I keep em in my spares box. Make 1, make 5, not a big difference. It actually makes me feel like I've made a better use of my time when I make multiples.

Great stocking stuffers!

Gus I won't need one for the engine. Just the swingarm. If you have one for the SV already made I can grab that from ya and let you know if it fits.

Germany.with you skills you could send some #'s O.D.and I.D. of the nut and the width of the key.

This would asure our product and cut your price in half.

Thanks
