stihl flippy cap replacements
« on: May 28, 2011, 10:34:55 am »
About time they recalled those  :-X :-X :-X flippy caps on some models.

The stihl  recall  http://www.stihlusa.com/recalls/recall_toolless_cap/FAQ/index.html

The recall dont include chainsaws, here is the model numbers listed on recall.

 Here is a video showing the replacement cap Baileys has for the chainsaws.

They dont usually make a video and post it unless they are ready to sale. I bet these are something they had made up for the chainsaws.

As soon as I find out out more I will update.

I'll have to say that Baileys have had some neat stuff but some just dissappeared after a while .

Like those spring loaded starter handles that Greg Grande shipped to Brad  that were given away at Bill Poors . They worked great but I can't find them anywhere .

I dont know if they have just the handle part anymore. But this might be the complete set up for 3.5mm.

Stihl  ;D pricey but is half the price of the stihl oem ones.

 I don't know why in the world some of the items leave a lot to guess work .They used to be really good at givings spectifics about  items but here of late have slipped some .

It could be that Stihl being Stihl whines about anything they feel is infringement weather it is or not . However Oregon makes all kinds of aftermarket devices for that brand of saw .

Al there was 2 bags of just the handles at that one gtg we were at, probably 2 different sizes. Did they all disappear?

Those were pretty much all given away at that event . At that period of time you could find them on Baileys site and they weren't 19 bucks a pop either, about half that .

If you want Al i have a brand new one that you can have if you PM me your address. I have no need for it and i like the stihl 460 rescue handles better and there only $5.00. The handle says elastomer 3.5 mm.

Thanks but no .I have a couple little ones on the 200T's plus rescue saw handles on an 038 Mag, 2100 Husky and 084 Stihl already .

The 200 really didn't need the spring gizmo but the other three are just a tad too much comp for my old bod .Actually that 2100 is too much for a young man ,that thing should have had a decomp from the get  go .

Back to the subject .I'd really be interested in the cap if I could find a few .It's a lot better than cussing those OEM flippys .Not in my opinion one of Stihls better ideas .
