BILYCLUB=Bill Lawrence=Where is my Headpipe?

Recommended Posts

This item (2002 CRF Headpipe) was offered to me for 75 dollars (shipped) and was in the package ready to go according Bill. The check #8350 was sent 9/16. A check cashing place called to confirm it was ok to cash around the 20th. I replied yes with ID.

Seventeen days have passed since then. No responce to email, unpublished phone number, no reply in the private mail pt. of thumpertalk. Yet on 10/02/20002 he was on thumpertalk telling how much he weighed (ie BILYCLUB). When transactions are not handled fairly it hurts everyone. Do we have to all use ebay to source a used part? Usually riders are a honest bunch of guys I would like to keep operating under that assumption. BILYCLUB you need to respond.

ive got it boxed up and ready to ship. be sure to include your return address on the envelope. i know all about bending stuff on rocks since i moved to arizona. so far ive mangled 3 radiators. our radiators seem pretty flimsy and a bit volnurable though. im actually working on some killer radiator gaurds right now. im going to post pics on thumper talk when i get my design finalized. if i get enough interest i may start selling them.

YOU MAY NOT WANT TO BUY ANYTHING FROM THIS GUY!

<BUMP> This guy needs to be banned from this site, and fellow TT'ers need to know he is not reliable, and a THIEF, yes, a thief, for taking your money and not sending your product.

Spread the word!

I agree with RIPPER65 and therapture. I too happen to be very trustworthy of others and have sent things out to people on there word that the money was on its way. I havent experienced any problems so far. But crap like this will definatly make me think twice before sending of parts without money in hand. So billyclub whats up with the headpipe? You made a deal, so stick to it!!! I hope its a mistake in the postage system rather than someone getting the short end of your stick.

Since "billy-goat-club" has not responded on TT or in private correspondence, it would see he is intent on keeping the money and screwing this guy out of a part. What a slug! mxaddict has a stock header pipe I think he might be willing to part with....if you can't trust that guy then there is no hope in the world :)

well, isnt this a delight. (im trying to find some humor somewhere in this mess) i assure you all that the head pipe was indeed put in the mail on the 20th. after that its location is out of my control. i can scan the shipping reciept and e-mail it to you if you would like. the reason i have not responded is because i havent checked my e-mail in a long time. ive been working 12-14 hour days and dont have much time lately. when i do get online i just come in here, browse some posts and thats it. i didnt respond because i didnt know there was a problem! in a way im glad you put up the post you did, im just a little miffed at the responses. im just an honest hard working guy like everyone else. im not out to ripp-off or scam anybody. as soon as i can get in touch with you by phone to find out how you would like me to send your money back i will. then if the pipe arrives you can act as you wish. all i want is any credibility i may have had on this site back. i recieved a call from a number that i didnt recognize today at 3:55. i cant always hear my phone at the job site. if it was you please try again as i tried to call it back but i got a recording saying that the number does not accept unidentified numbers.

Bill,

I hope the part eventually shows up, the transaction is successfully completed and we hear a good report.

Till then, you have the shipping receipt, therefore you have his address. Send him a Cashiers Check or Money Order via return receipt mail instead of dragging this out.

Too bad you didn't read or respond to any e-mails for weeks. This could have been resolved privately.

Hey S*** happens

I'm glad I didnt open my mouth and insert foot like some of us here did! Ive been accused of being a little hair trigger myself at times. I'm gald I decided to wait and monitor this situation first. I hope some apologies are in order, and some feelings arent too hurt over this.

Good News!! Today I received a money order from BILYCLUB for the $75 I had sent 30 days ago. The part never did turn up but Bill and I are square and thats what matters.

Thanks to therapture, RIPPER 65, CRF450 #73 and needsprayer for your concern. For a while there I wasn't sure if I had made a bad choice to buy a part from a stranger seeing as I didn't get any part or responce for a while.

Just for an example when people buy stuff from me I send a digital photo of the item next to the package and a photo of the shipping receipt the day the item is shipped. A couple days later I email the buyer to see if the item arrived in good condition. A little follow up can really put the buyers mind at ease. So lets all relax and get back to riding.

I'm glad you gave us a report. I didn't want to ask but I was wondering how it turned out.

Good to hear that you and Bill are OK. Bill sounded like a straight shooter.

      I just bought a Magura hydraulic clutch for my 2014 CRF450R.  Bought it thinking install would be easy, and I'm not sure that's the case now that I have the product in my hands.  I have searched the forums, YouTube, etc for install help specifically for my model year (2013 and 2014 are same really), and haven't found anything specific for the 2013-2014 model install at all.  Instructions from Magura are TERRIBLE, and are not specific at all to the Honda - generic instructions - so I'm debating if I want to return the product, cuz I don't want trouble or a big install job.  Question: for the 2013-2014 CRF450R install ONLY of a Magura Hymec hydraulic clutch - other model years are different and thus it won't be helpful for other model years - do you have any tips or feedback?  My concerns are below...
      1.  The 2014 model has a sleeve behind the clutch actuation arm that the Magura clutch slave cylinder fits into.  Stock, the sleeve holds one end of the cable, with a nut on the other end to keep the cable end tight in the sleeve.  The Magura slave cylinder, however, slides into the mounting sleeve  - but does NOT have a nut: the tension from the clutch actuation arm pulling on the metal Magura slave cyl tip end is apparently supposed to keep the Magura slave cylinder tight in the mounting sleeve.  Q: Will the Magura slave fit in to the mounting sleeve easily, stay tight, and is there any adjustment needed in order to keep the 4-6mm of freeplay that Magura recommends?  How easy is it to get the Magura slave fitted into the sleeve and the metal tip in place?  Is there enough freeplay between slave and tip end to mount in actuating arm AND the holding sleeve, so that the holding sleeve doesn't need to be unbolted?  
      2. The stock clutch cable and OEM setup runs out of the mounting sleeve (see pics marked "metal starts", and then runs through a metal sleeve that routes the cable through the engine compartment - keeping the cable away from the hot parts of the engine case, so as not to melt the cable insulation (I believe).  That metal sleeve is about 6-8 inches in length.  The Magura clutch cable, on the other hand, exits the Magura slave cylinder at an angle - yet has no such metal routing.  I don't think the OEM metal routing sleeve will accept the Magura cable either, so a) the OEM metal routing sleeve would have to be removed first before installing the Magura - and then b) you have to hope that the Magura cable can be routed in such a way with zip ties holding the hydraulic line that line will not touch or be close to the hot metal engine casing as you route it through the engine.  Q: how easy was it to get the OEM clutch cable and metal routing sleeve out?  Easy as unscrewing the nut on the other end of the OEM cable, on the other side of the black rubber cable flange in my pics?   
      3.  My stock clutch pull isn't bad.  I just like the feel of a hydro clutch.  Any feedback on how much better feeling and easier pull will be with the Magura?  What's your feedback on the difference?  FYI, I'm leaving my clutch plates and springs stock.

      We have a 2016 CRF450R with about 11 hours out. never ridden hard always check the oil and change when needed along with the air filter. Took care of the recall that was required as well. Well when riding the bike was stalled out. Went to try and kick start the bike again. the kick start lever just back up jamming my knee into the handle bars and some how ended up cracking the case right by where the kick start goes through the case. Has any one had this happen or heard of this happening? What is the cause?

      Any advice on what should be replaced while I have the top end off for a valve replacement. Will do headgasket and springs of course, anything other parts you would recommend while I'm going at it?
       
      Thanks!

      The dirtbike is on it's forth year right now on the same motor job. I have to jump start it. Is it worth me trading for a 2009 650 brute force with7000 miles? Need some expert advice. Thanks

      Just wondering what you guys do to remove black marks on your seat. My 08 crf450r has the red/black seat, and after each ride there are some black marks on the red from my riding pants. Not scuff marks, more like patches of black residue from my pants rubbing on the seat. I’ve tried the magic eraser which seemed to do the trick, but lately they seem like they aren’t coming off. Also tried scrubbing bubbles with a brush and no luck. Not too worried cuz I have an spare OEM seat, but I’d like to keep this one nice. Any ideas? Maybe I shouldn’t wear black pants?
