    Holy crap. All "I need a suit threads" should be answered. $250 for a used suit is tough enough to find, nevermind new.

    Check out the size chart, I'm sure you wouldn't have an issue selling it if it doesn't end up fitting.

    Just an FYI to anyone considering it without reading fine print: they state some of the suits have been worn for "demo purposes" and some have evidence of it with scuffed knee pucks. Still a pretty good deal for a gently used suit, but I don't know how to distinguish which was just on display and which was used (some have no pucks and since they can be moved, looking at them probably isn't a guarantee).

    Wow. I received my suit and back protector today. It actually fits fairly well. I am completely amazed. I would have preferred a 2-piece, but was a little too slow to pull the trigger. What I got is going to work really really well.

    Either their 'belly' measurement is very misleading, guts are highly malleable or I can't work a tape measure.

    Jacket fits great with just a under-layer and it is just a bit tight with the back protector in. I expect it'll break in nicely.

    Legs are a bit long, but when crouched the knee pads fall almost where I think I want them. Maybe someday I'll get the legs shortened a touch. You can do that, right?

    A nice 'stitch suit in a year or so, a pair of those 'adventure' boots, and I will have my dream gear spread.

    Looks like this is back:

    Very happy with the suit I picked up in this deal last year. Only wish I had more opportunity to wear it!

    CBR is somewhat back together, but has to come apart again. The spacers I cut for the springs are too long. Waaaaayyyyy too much preload. I followed diagram C, when obviously I should have used diagram D.


    Also, waiting on new throttle cables now.

    I didn't feel like it was right, but I was following instructions...

    Just the wrong instructions.

    Now I know 1 way NOT to measure the distance for cutting the spacer. I still may learn others .

    Re: Cheap Teknic Suits! Closeout!

    if their jackets have two numbers - which one is the US size?

    this one says 38/48:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Mens-TEKNIC-...3e204b&vxp=mtr

    so is it a size 38 (just about right for me) or 48 (too big)?

    judging by the measurements listed in the auction - I'd say it's a 38...if so, this would compliment the teknic leather pants I have well, and make a zippered set of crashing leathers for my upcoming sumo track days
