I looked at the OB kit many years ago. I seem to recall it required that some OEM part(s) be sent back to OB for modification. I can't remember what that was and MIGHT be misremembering that but I'd make a (small) wager that I remember right and SOMETHING had to be sent to them to be modified.

If that is correct, I assume that since they are no longer in business, you would have to make arrangements for whatever was to be modified. Might be a DIY thing depending on your tools - again, can't remember.
My kit is complete, including new inner and outer covers, and a new pinned-spindle craddle, already machined. That is why the invoice from OB had reached $3300. In 2012 dollars. o_O

No, it just arrived. I have 2 Commandos down to the bare frame so need to decide which one will get it.

I am not seeing many people have experience with this kit on here. It would be good know how many kits they sold.
