    I don't give a shit about labels, just stay true to what you think is right. Like buying american and boycotting foreign junk.
    Of course nothing is black and white and there are many shades of gray, Led Sled could have gone through the pat. process, but then the lawyers would have made him charge two large for it,and Taiwan Ted probably has more lawyers and, well you get the idea.
    It should be hip to take the high road.
    We used to call posers posers and a hep cat was a cool dude, BTW

    Hey, XbrooklynX, WELCOME TO TROLL TOWN, A MUTUAL ADMIRATION CLUB. Don't waste your time with these prats. They're like the Croods, afraid of anything NEW. You can find good info here, just don't bother posting about anything new, it gets their hackles up and challenges their place in the pecking order.

    I had a v-twin kicker kit on my 79 ironhead. It wore out after about 5 years of solid use when the rivets on the ratchet gear broke off. I had a new plate riveted up and it resumed normal effective operation again for the best part of another 5 years, I sold it recently and from what I hear, its starting to fail again. So yeah, I guess if you buy cheap you aren't gonna get the same longevity. However, I am confused as to why Pat didn't patent his kit given the amount of time and effort he put into developing it. Sure patents run out but it might have got him a few more years of sales on his kit.

    People will buy cheap more often than they will go high end, particularly for something like a retro kicker kit which they can use seldom as a back up.

    Patents and suits to defend them aren't cheap. Copyright is easier to defend but still money. That's why many inventors settle on "patent applied for" in hope of deterrence and because an actual patent is a specific target to work around or invalidate by finding applicable prior art.

    As for rivets it's easy to spec aircraft grade rivets instead of soft shit where that's an issue or may become one.

    This is a 2014 thread with no currently useful content. I know checking dates on a phone is hard because this board software renders them in white which apparently cannot be fixed, but best to look next time.
