The Kennedy stuff always works. In my opinion it's always well tested before we get it. Jon takes pride in his work, other manufacturers should sit up and take note (I've just binned another piece of Kuryakyn chrome that is just chromed right over steel with no copper coat). Electrical Connection are one of the few other companies that share the Kennedy method of going to the bother of getting our opinions when making new stuff.Doesn't matter how much or little the parts cost. There's time taken to make the thing as well as the time they guy spent scratching his head designing it. I think the $80 is well worth it if it works. Think of the hundreds of $'s we spend on chrome bits that must cost very little to make and quite often the quality of the chrome is terrible.
DAVE ,If "kennedy" thought a .15 cent potentiometer would do the job ,I am sure thats what they would have used ,,They have always had excellent quality products and quality does not come cheap ....These people have been around a long time and know what they are doing and they have a very successful business going ,I dont think they would be doing so well if they were fitting cheap componets in their products ,,,Hmmm. microprocessor controller instead of a $ 0.15 potentiometer? Seems a bit much for < $5.00 in parts needed to design it.
