We just installed it for a client on a XJr100 and he just traded for a S55.

It is brand new, these usually go between $2000-$3000, depending on the vendor however we are the specialist and manufacture these in house to Arden specifications.

ASking $1250 includes UPS shipping.

Perhaps this is a usage of the word "cheap" of which I am unaware, unless the pulley comes with a lot of extras.

Yeah, yeah, I know ... R&D + tool-up costs + production costs + limited market = expensive. But wow, two grand for a little pulley wheel and bearings?!? I shudder to think what the gross profit must be on these.

Now I know why they call you grumpy, you just seem to hate everything that doesnt appeal to you

so I suggest a new buisness venture, invest in a lathe,and CNC buy a dozen harmonic balancers and good luck

when the cars pulley wobbles and the accessories shut down

than the $2000 doesnt seem like much, but youll have 11 more tries and over $100,000 already invested.

...when I said "R&D + tool-up costs + production costs + limited market = expensive." Underdrive pulleys (that work fine) for other cars cost much less so you guys are greedy, inefficient or simply playing in a market with extremely limited demand so you have to charge outrageous prices to recoup your investment.

Me know how business work me thinks. If you can sell 'em fine, but I came here to read about the car and not spam.

Wink wink, if you were a Roadfly sponsor and not a spammer I would have left well enough alone. By the way, might be time to fire your lathe operator if he can't turn straight pulleys or better yet ... farm the job out to someone who doesn't need a learning curve and already owns a lathe and CNC rig.

But hey, I'm bored and working mostly onthe phone and computer today so have nothing better to do than poke fun at you guys spamming with your multi-thousand dollar pulley.

Are you ther lathe operator and/or engineer in question? ;)
