He's just saying that he had it real cheap, then someone else jumped in trying to get it nearly as cheap, forcing him to bid more.

Kinda like an auction. LOL

I bid on one for my 1500 last year and determined that I was NOT going to pay more than what Honda would charge for a new one.
I lost out on one by a few bucks only top have the person that was holding the action contact me and offered me a brand new one for less than what Honda would have got for one!
I bought it and it was like advertised....brand new!

Then you lucked out.

I tried to bid on one early last year and sent the seller a pm for photos of the tools since the toolkit shown in the auction was closed. So I could have been bidding on a empty case.
The seller got all bent out of shape and the conversation deteriorated quickly. Reminded me of Saber Cycles attitude.
Needless to say I did not bid on that auction.

Yes...I lucked out on mine.
I did buy one earlier that was missing the spark plug socket, figuring I could find one. Then I got the deal on this new one.

One thing to note, do not use the large open end wrench to remove the rear axle nut. I tried that when tearing down the rear of my Wing for a new tire and that thing broke. Out of the other kit, not my new one.

I had to go buy a socket that size and still had to use a cheater bar on a 1/2 drive rachet!

Could just make one up yourself using a better quality tools. Inventory the stock and pickup whatever is needed. Thats what I did. The stock tool kits aren't of the best quality to begin with. Then you can add extras if you want.
