Upgrade MK2/S to MK2.5S kit discontinued - alternatives?

Upgrade MK2/S to MK2.5S kit discontinued - alternatives?  

New Member

I was looking to upgrade my MK2S to an MK2.5S and discovered that the upgrade kit was discontinued at the end of last year. I've managed to find what I believe are all the parts required separately on the store except a "v-cable adapter" for the hotend fan and the variety of nuts and bolts (and other things) that can be seen in this image from the upgrade manual: https://d17kynu4zpq5hy.cloudfront.net/igi/prusa3d/WCjrLMSKHqMJLmPJ.huge

Has anyone else gone this route and able to point me to the "v-cable adapter" and is there a listing of the contents of the two nuts/bolts/misc bags that are required of the upgrade?



Upgrade item listing for reference (total comes to $212, not much more than the original listing price of the kit):

$99.71 Magnetic heatbed MK52 12V (assembly)

$49.99 Bondtech drivegear (set)

$15.36 IR filament sensor

$3.81 IR Filament sensor cable MK2.5S


$13.49 Hotend fan Noctua
** says needs "v-cable adapter" cannot find this on store **

$25.99 SuperPINDA

Every so often, they are available on eBay.

The v-cables are offered on the e-shop under a different name:

Noctua v-cable - https://shop.prusa3d.com/en/mk25mk25s/678-mk25-noctua-reduction.html

Pinda v-cable - https://shop.prusa3d.com/en/mk25mk25s/677-mk25-pinda-reduction.html

Furthermore, I too am looking into compiling the upgrade list, since the kit is discontinued, but the only thing I am currently missing is the fasteners (nuts and bolts) you mentioned. Might just have to source those locally.


Kind regards,
