i was fortunate to learn about this the very same day i bought my goldwing, so i went rummaging through my tools and found one marked "yamaha". if i hadn't, my carb screws would have been thoroughly screwed by now, as i had to dis-assemble and re-assemble several times before i got them right.
i almost missed it at the end of the original post, but i see that the Pz bits are a european thing ... i mistakenly thought that the Pz was a japanese shorthand for phillips . good to know; thanks !

Not sure why it's taking so long for you guys, but I ordered mine from this Amazon link, and got it two days later (Amazon Prime - free shipping as well):

Since Amazon has begun really pushing their "Prime" memberships, their shipping which is not under the prime system has gone to hell. They hold back shipping for a week to ten days, in order to convince people that they need prime. What they convinced me of is that I do not need to order from Amazon. Where they used to get quite a bit of business from me, I will drop to probably 5 % or 10 % of my previous orders. I can pay a bit more and have a whole lot less aggravation. Like EBay, Amazon was a great idea when it first came out, but it has gotten so big, it cannot be limber.

I am not having that delay problem.
I always choose the Free Shipping and it usually arrives at my home within a week's time.

I know that is different than what NewEgg does, they usually ship out of their warehouse the same night, IF the invoice hits them by 2 pm.

usually I am not in a big push for what I want, I get it the cheapest that I can find it, and if that means I wait a week or 10 days, I don't care.

My wife and I both have our own "hobbies", and we are both big time Amazon users. Ok, fine. We're addicted.

Although we use Prime when available, obviously, it's not always available. I have never noticed any significant difference, other than a day or three, between Prime and non-Prime shipping.

What happened to me was the original seller (mentioned here) canceled my order saying they were out of stock, so I went to another seller on Amazon. They gave me a longer shipping time, but still didn't make that. When I contacted them they said that a typhoon had closed down the airport and the package sat. Amazon gave me a refund for failure to make promised delivery date.

Thanks for the 411 on this set. I ordered one from Amazon, and it rides with tool kit. Build quality is great!

All of the Vessel tools are of really high quality. I have several of their JIS drivers as well as a JIS impact driver:

Two metric thumbs up on these - they engage very solidly compared to a Philips.
