Buyer Beware on mods
Wanted to pass along an experience with an order received today from an aftermarket vendor specializing in Victory parts.
Ordered: Primary and cam case bolt kits advertised as
"black powder coat, knurled allen head bolt kit. Allen wrench included. Bolts have a light coat of loctite incorporated onto the threads."
$24.99 for the primary bolt set & $9.95 for the cam case set.
What I received: Plain black, not powder coated bolts, no pre-applied loctite, no wrenches in either "kit". Included was a note on a long thin strip of paper (like a fortune cookie) stating to use medium strength thread locker. After installation is complete, use a Q-tip and apply a dab of clear enamel in the hex holes to prevent rusting. 24 hrs later, apply automotive wax with another Q-tip to complete. Enjoy your new "Bling" and be safe.
Are you kidding me??? $35 for plain black bolts, not powder coated that I could have gone down the block to Ace hardware and picked up for $10, and I still need to buy loctite and seal the finish to keep them from rusting? I don't see the "Bling" factor of flat black.
If you are out of the item(s) you are advertising, say "out of stock", rather than shipping something different, and hoping the customer won't notice the difference.
