Hello,

I am just trying to see if anyone can direct me to an online order site for the J. Costa so I can make the purchase. Of course, I would like to get it as close to $300.00 as possible or less even if I could find one used with new pins. I'd rather go ahead and give this a try and just keep my Dr Pulley 24g sliders and stock variator as a replacement once I wear the J. Costa out.

Thanks for your help!

Scott

Has anyone heard anything about or tried the http://mrp-speed.com TK variator - it looks just like a j Costa copy

http://martinracingperformance.blogspot.com/2011/08/silverwing-honda-600cc-race-variator.html

If the price is right I might give this a try and give a full report with measured road tests.

I think after a little research I have found that this product is the same as J. Costa. It is also known as TM44 also made by and called Turbo Kit variator by Martin Racing. I thought it looked identical! I just need to know where to get the J. Costa that will actually ship to the US for as cheap as possible.

MRP used to be a Dr Pulley US vendor ... till they started selling look alike sliders.

According to Dr Pulley they tested the MRP sliders and found them to be inferior and would wear very quickly.

MRP was stripped of their Dr Pulley US vendor.

This sounds very similar.
