    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

    he will talk your ear off though, when i get tired of talking to him on the phone, I just tell him "ok, im tired of talkin to you now" and hang up.

    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.

    Alright, check your e-mail guys. I have shipped all orders that I have received payment for. If you didn't get an e-mail, I didn't get your payment.

    Man, was that a busy weekend or what?

    What crummy service! I ordered mine yesterday and I've only received THREE emails about my order and you took until today to ship it! ONE WHOLE DAY!!!!! Get on the ball...



    Seriously, that's a record I think. Good job! If the product is as good as your service, you have a winner!
