Hats off to the Hicks Clutch Tensioner Reducer. Had a question about the grinding of the rivot, so I emailed him and he called me long distance to explain how to do it. Talked for ten min.Wast about 30 min to install after I talked to him, works great Nice guy I recomend him for his work, top notch. This is a thanks to him

Ok. I just ordered one. When I did my Iron Butt ride, I got stuck in traffic three times. Creeping and stop and go for over an hour total. After the third one, which was 750 miles into the ride, my hand was killing me. I hope this works!

It would really help to have the step by step instructions on this. I am reluctant to order one without detailed instructions and pictures. Glad somebody finally came up with something cheap and easy (I hope) to help!

Talk? You mean talk to a real person? Thought everything had to be done electronically

With a name like "Hick Custom Machine Works", you can't do business like a corporate giant. It takes away from the validity of the name.
