RRMMX/R²SG2VP
RRMMX=Retractable Reversed Momentum MX RG2T=RSVP G2 Translucent(name credit goes to Guitrum)

A simple mod made up of only 2 pens, that are very common. Approx. 10 minutes -20 minutes to make the mod, all depending on how fast you can cut and make a hole. Let's get started.

Materials:


1. 1 Pentel RSVP (prefferably Med. size)
2. 1 Pilot G2 (any color)
3. toothpick
4. grips(optional)

Tools:

1. x-acto knife
2. pliers
3. tape

Procedure:

1. Take apart both pens, then leave your self the parts shown in the picture

2. Put the other parts aside, leaving yourself with the RSVP barrel and cap. Cut accordingly, shown by the red lines in the picture.

3. Put those aside and take out the G2 Inktube, cut about 1cm from the cap. This is about where the gel ends.

4. Get your cut RSVP cap and barrel. Put any kind of tape around the place on the barrel shown in the picture.

<a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/3723/img0363gw8.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/3723/img0363gw8.jpg" target="_blank">http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/3723/img0363gw8.jpg</a></a>

5. Retrieve your cut end of the G2 Inktube, top G2 barrel part, and taped RSVP barrel. Insert a insert if you have one into the RSVP barrel. Take the cut end of the G2 inktube and then insert it, cap first, into the top G2 barrel part. After this is done, take your taped RSVP barrel and just twist or push it into the open-ended end of the G2 barrel part. It should now look like this.

<a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/1708/img0364kp3.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/1708/img0364kp3.jpg" target="_blank">http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/1708/img0364kp3.jpg</a></a>

6. Now take the back cap of the RSVP, the little black cap, and drill or make a hole. Make sure this hole is big enough so that the RSVP inktube will slide in and out smoothly. In other words, make the hole big enough to slide the whole inktube through smoothly.

<a href="http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/5166/img0366te0.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/5166/img0366te0.jpg" target="_blank">http://img340.imageshack.us/img340/5166/img0366te0.jpg</a></a>

7. Now, take your RSVP inktube, spring, and toothpick. Pinch or tape somewhere 1.8mm from the writing end of the RSVP inktube to that you can fit the G2 spring in snugly so that it doesn't move when you click. Cut your toothpick so that it is around 1.7cm long, then insert it into the open-ended end of the RSVP inktube. What you should have should look like this.

<a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/6805/img0365dz4.jpg" target="_blank"><a href="http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/6805/img0365dz4.jpg" target="_blank">http://img215.imageshack.us/img215/6805/img0365dz4.jpg</a></a>

8. Now take the RSVP barrel/G2 barrel and insert your new inktube into it. Make sure the toothpick doesn't get stuck on the edge of the G2 inktube cap. After having this done, retrieve your black RSVP back cap with the hole and screw it onto the RSVP barrel. Take out your cut RSVP top cap and just put it on the back cap. make sure the cut end is facing upwards. (For people who want to use a metal tip/tip just sand down the teeth of the end of the RSVP barrel and it should fit snugly, replacing the black back cap. If you have sanded it down too much just use tape to fill the gap.)

UPDATE: new vid on how to put inserts on both sides=
Dynamik
nice work. i like it
K4S
Pretty good for your first mod. I might give this a try another time to see what i can add to it smile.gif
jackolanternsoup
does it write? i don't see a tip...
K4S
The tip comes out the back part of the rsvp. He also said its retractable so that means it can write mellow.gif
Tim
looks pretty good, you'd probably get some "what the hell is that?" remarks from classmates though. COP looks good.
Aries
yes it writes, lol just click the G2 end
UEDan
Ohh one thing, Will the thing go flying if I do an infinity?
And I mean like a FAST CRAZY infinity.
Aries
depends, what kind of grips you use, if you don't use grips at all. I've found with one side, the clicking part with grips tends to slip.
asakawa
it looks easy enough to put an insert in both sides of the mod - like an mmx/nx mmt.

i'd have to say that i don't like the look of it but well done making a new stable mod out of common pens.
LinkMaster03
Looks cool I am making it now.
zepiroth76
Hmm...interesting. I might give it a try sometime but you really should figure out a way to make the front side better.
Aries
in the tutorial i said u could put a metal tip instead of the rsvp back cap
newkid
I like the fact that it has no tip. I am so going to show it off and be like yeah. cool.gif
It spin good for me, although my infinities have taken on a new degree of slopiness. sad.gif
Aries
im glad u like it biggrin.gif as for the infinities, it depends on the grip ur using. the g2 grips arent as grippy as anyball grips or profile grips. u can experiment on which u like most rolleyes.gif
LinkMaster03
I made it!! I would post a picture, but my digital camera is broken. Very good tutorial. I love the retractable tip, and it's the perfect weight. I need this after I lost my RSVP MX.
CPC
That looks nice I will give this mod a try. It is different looking than most mods but it looks interesting.
Dr1v37h38u5
interesting... i'm going to have to mess around with your retraction mechanism...

good job.
Aries
Just edited: Put in length, adn changed it from mm to cm. I can't believe I missed that.
blugyblug
Wow..that seems pretty good but it might be a bit too light for me. Is there any way to add some weight on it?
BananaKetchup
kool mod..thumb.gif
But u should add a tip, as other people have said

@blugy, wtf's wrong with yu...?

8. Now take the RSVP barrel/G2 barrel and insert your new inktube into it. Make sure the toothpick doesn't get stuck on the edge of the G2 inktube cap. After having this done, retrieve your black RSVP back cap with the hole and screw it onto the RSVP barrel. Take out your cut RSVP top cap and just put it on the back cap. make sure the cut end is facing upwards. (For people who want to use a metal tip/tip just sand down the teeth of the end of the RSVP barrel and it should fit snugly, replacing the black back cap. If you have sanded it down too much just use tape to fill the gap.)

Wait a sec... On that picture the RSVP barrel says BK91 "!!?!?!" isnt it supposed to be BK90...

Yeah. I notice things like that biggrin.gif
Aries
Keep adding grips, if not...try to finda way out. You could also fill the barrel with toothpicks or put tape around the barrel to add more wieght. As for the tip you can sand down the teeth of the barrel where the cap screws on and put a signo tip on with a grip to hold it in place, then put the cut RSVP cap over it. Or you can just use superglue.
Darkeh
Ok, I made one but the part of the RSVP cap on the tip is loose, and what part of the G2 grip did u put on it?
Aries
darkeh.if its loose add tape the grip doesn't do anything but add grip for infinities. Make sure that you used the right kind of cap. There are 2 RSVP's fine and medium. If you used spare parts, try to find a cap that fits. of not just add more G2 grip to the tip end. All G2 grips are the same btw.

If your usinga metal tip. I used the original RSVP grip to hold the signo tip in place. It fits very snugly.
Darkeh
I just got rid of that piece of cap, got some random rubber grip that fits good and a metal tip, kind of wierd colors: red and yellow/white :/. Works good though, thx for the tut.
gizzardsmack
wow. i like it. i just grabbed two pens and made one. sweet!

Aries
nice, i'd like to see more pics of this pen made by other people
Drazer
i made one and i got a nice pic of it but it won't let me copy the picture into this
but this is a nice mod, i can't really try it out atm though because it is to hot in my room atm and my hands are to moist =/
Aries
use imageshack.us
blugyblug
One more question,
How durable is this pen? cuz i only got a few RSVPs and i cant get anymore in Australia. I dont want this pen to break or anything.
Aries
lmao this pen is so durable its not funny...u can drop it on the floor many times and it won't break, no worries wink.gif
totEn
i like this mod, its got a rly good balanced weight, and the pen retracts OMG biggrin.gif first mod i ever made.. and i learned charge/sonic with it, is tehre any other mods with similar weight/balance as this, im guessing mx maybe ?
Kin
So is is a good starter pen? I might have a G2 lieing around
Aries
its a pretty good pen to start out with i guess, but thats my opinion. A rsvp mx or bictory are other mods u could try out, ther both very easy to make
gizzardsmack
its a nice beginner mod, but there might be a few problems:

the first was having ways to cut/drill. i... erm... don't have any kind of knife, so i ended up using a kitchen knife. and yes, my mom did complain to me later last week about how her knives seemed duller... haha. as for drilling, i was too lazy to get the drill out, so i used a metal skewer, which worked fine.

if you have the right tools, its EASY stuff.

and 2nd: make sure you put an insert in. the pen looks so much better with an insert, and if you need, make it short enough so that the spring doesn't bunch up on it in the back.

good luck and good mod!
Aries
as for drilling, all i did was take a small screw driver and drive it thru with a hammer


as for the insert, i didnt have to cut it short and it perfectly fit over the spring...i dont know what u did wrong becuz that should not be an issue
Kin
say i dont have an insert at the moment can i put ti in later? laugh.gif

Also whats on the end of the right side, i cant figure it out...
Aries
On the right side is the cut RSVP cap. and it hasa grip on it. Also yes, you can put an insert later, just make sure you can take apart the RSVP barrel and G2 body later on.
newkid
I love this mod, it's my favorite. Durable, retractable, and mid-weightish...?

My only problems (because i'm so newb at this) is the that the tape always slides down the ink tube and I don't know how to fix it(again it's becuase I am newb). I can't even began to understand how pinching works. sad.gif
Kin
Ok whats on the left side tongue.gif


Is it the G2 grip?
Dynamik
holy crap i just made it i love it

Alright, its true, taping is bad. Pinching works well though, pinching is where u squeeze the ink tube so it gets flat and bits of plastic pop out of the side, stopping the spring. Dont pinch too hard or the inktube will get stuffed up.
Take apart some retractable pens and look at the inktube. Near the tip, theres this little protruding bit of plastic to stop the spring.
Aries
on the right side is g2 grip, but its optional
Kin
I want to add it to add more momentum its kinda flat.

Aww yea, want pics?
Aries
pics would be awesome biggrin.gif
newkid
Thanks blugyblug it helped me out loads.
nevets123
this mod has started to grow on me. after hearing other people saying how good it is, i will probably make it when i get a g2. laugh.gif
Adrenaline
Lol looks pretty funky. Maybe you should considering adding something like a part of a cap to make it look more like a pen =P

It's pretty cool though lol
K4S
Sort of a random question on my part but why is the R in "RSG2VP" squared? I could understand if you used 2 rsvp pens then two r's would be R, but you only use 1 rsvp and 1 g2.
