Default HMD 6x9 Speaker Lids Fitment Issues

I would like to hear from any one who has purchased any of these lids. I ordered a set almost a month ago and the first set I couldn't even get them on because none of the holes for lock or hinge lined up. He agreed to send another set that he would make sure fit before he sent them to me. Got my second set and could get them installed but the fit was terrible. Looks to me like inside lip of lid is about a half inch short. When closed with lock installed the lid looks crooked most of front weather striping shows which proves it is not close to fitting like the stock lid. At the rear of lid I can stick my whole finger between lid and bottom, it sticks out about a 1/2" further then stock lid. At rear inside corner of my bags the lid has worn off some paint where the lid rubbed, with these lids it doesn't even cover that mark. After getting my first set back he admitted to having issues with other lids and was mad at his supplier for not fixing a known issue they had the way Mike wanted it fixed. He now tells me he has four satisfied customers out of same batch as mine. His only solution for my problem has been he has some thicker weather striping he will give me which is unacceptable to me. Telling me all sales are final and won't accept my return. I will try and load some pictures but have never done so before so we'll see. Would sure love to hear any one else's experience.

Sorry to hear of your misfortune , but I'm beginning to wonder if HMD makes anything that actually works ... Could this be why all sales are final ?

Sorry you are learning the hard way. I was in the same camp and burned by him. Poor vendor. Retailers are also dropping him as they get the same attitude from him. But hey, just ask him, he'll tell you it's not him, it's just a handful of grouchy customers.

I have sent many more photos to him and his response is they fit fine. My wife purchased these for me and I wasn't ready to do whole project during the riding season and tried to stop order. They didn't even have product to ship yet and wouldn't stop order due to all sales are final. Since he wouldn't halt order I went ahead with project. Purchased and installed two new amps, speakers, bag fillers and non returnable factory paint. He thinks I just have buyers remorse and trying to get out of purchase. He is right I certainly have buyers remorse but only due to fit issues. He wouldn't even return email or call this week until he refused to accept lids back which I had Fed Ex'd to him, then I get a response. I now have went to my second option of V-Twin Audio 6x9 inserts for the factory bags. They got them to me in a couple of days. Cut them in yesterday and they are already at the paint shop. They take up more bag space and have semi obstructed path but hope they will work. Filed a grievance with Visa about purchase so we'll see what happens.

Are you saying this HMD clown actually refused to refund your money and cancel an order for something he couldn't even supply you with at the time ??? Forget Visa , I would be calling the better business bureau . What an A-hole .

File a dispute with visa for a product not fitting discription. The fact that he replaced them once is unique for him as he generally won't do that. Since both don't fit visa should stand behind you and you have proof you returned them even if he refused acceptance.

Exactly, wife ordered on Tuesday. I called him on Friday and said project scope would be way more then I wanted to do right now and would like to hold off. Told me he would stop if order hadn't been processed and to contact Erica his office manager to see. Contacted her and she said order is processed as soon as order is placed. Lids were on back order still for another week. I will have to look at BBB, never had an issue with someone like this before. If he thinks they are so great he can sell them to someone else. They weren't a special order just an in stock item.
