    another player in the 4.5" rocker arm game

    What is the level of interest (demand) for the Giant NRS 4.5" rocker arms? Reason I ask is because a local motorcycle suspension guy was talking about the NRS rocker arms, and when he went to the SGF site, he says he can do exactly what they have but for a lot less money, and still included highend Japanese bearings to replace the bushings.

    I believe SGF charges $65 plus $3.85 plus tax if a CA resident. The guy wanted me to inquire if there would be a market for 4.5" NRS rocker arms if they were only $45 (plus $3.85 shipping...no tax).

    Or is the niche too small?

    if its lighter than SGF you guys may have something. one note you can always round out the edges to shave weight. how about carbon ? i know wishful thinking. maybe carbon and aluminum laminate ?

    I bought the rocker for $65 dollars about two months ago and they have worked great. SGF is now selling them on Ebay for $49 each.
