Xr's only Online ordering

Recommended Posts

Hello guy's have any of you ordered from these guys latley? I placed an order on friday and I called before I placed it to make sure that they had everything in stock which they did so I ordered the parts online. I called on Monday to see if the order was alright and it was and they said it would be shipped out last night and I would get an e-mail when they did ship it out, so I didn't get an e-mail so I called again today and they said it would ship out today and I would get an e-mail when they do so. Well I did not get an e-mail so what gives?

Thanks.

Yeah they are super slow. I sent in a defective temperature dipstick to be replaced/repaired and they had it for well over 2 months and I had to call them 3 or 4 times.

weird...

I made an order not even a week ago, and my parts are already here in Australia, just finished getting through customs so should expect it in a day or two.

I ordered thursday night and got tracking info on Sunday, parts in Australia on Tuesday.

Only thing left is to see if my order is correct.

Must be dependant on who you get on the day?

There short handed over there.

It's a small operation that barely makes ends meet.

I think Chris and Freddie are the only ones that work there, I'm not forsure on that though, I did talk to a girl one time that answered the phone.

There's only so much that they can do, be patient you'll get your parts.

I was so close to posting up about XRs only last night but I thought I should not say anything until I got what I paid for.

But since you asked...

I put in an order (online) for the 650R side panel mod and the Hi flow backfire screen on the 9th April and paid for it immediately.

Got the Email, "Blah blah, thanks for your order, we will send you an email with tracking identity when it ships, blah blah".

So I'm waiting a couple of weeks, no item sent Email so I send them an Email with my order # asking where it is and has it left yet. I get a reply, someone says "I'll look into it and get back to you". So I'm waiting, then I send another Email asking for some follow up, no reply.

It goes on. 4 emails in total, no further correspondance from them.

Given the time difference, I had to wait up until 11:30 at night my time to phone them, international call from Australia, just to have a guy say " sir I'll personally look into it and discuss it with the owner and follow it up myself."

That was a couple of days ago....:thumbsup:

If you guys from XR's only are reading this, I have a message for you...:confused:

I've experienced a bit of delay in shipping, but customer service was good and the parts are fantastic.

I placed an order over a month ago and just got the order last week. The web site said that everything was all in stock. The day after I ordered, I got a call to let me know that one piece was delayed at the anodizer but it would ship that week. The next week I asked for an update and was told the order was being shipped. two weeks later I asked for an update and they said the part was not in from the anodizer. Another week goes by and I ask for an update, they said it shipped but I got no tracking number. The web site still said "processing" for the status. Once the package arrived, they send a non anodized part. I guess they got tired of me asking for updates and shipped what they had.

The parts are good quality but not what I ordered. If they had given me the option of getting non anodized (due to delays etc) I would be ok with it. Making me wait for the anodized part and then shipping a plain one without so much as a hint is kinda sucky on their part. It's a shame because they have such great potential and a lot of good stuff to offer.

From what I've gathered across a few forums, my experience is pretty normal. Bottom line? Be prepared to wait.

Used to be GREAT. Owner died and it (apparently) hasn't been the same since.

Sometimes fast and painless.

Sometimes not.....

Thanks for the info, I was just getting ready to order a bunch of parts but I think I will find other sources. Currently waiting on parts for my lawnmower (4 weeks...had to buy another used one...$1500 because I couldn't wait any longer with my grass so high) Don't want the same problems with my 650, have it tore apart and waiting and waiting. Good luck to the people waiting, hopefully they are not critical parts that will keep you from riding. Hopefully all distributors of parts aren't going this way, wait untill you have sufficient demand, then manufacture the parts. I understand that this keeps the costs down, but it is killing the end user.

Ordered on the 24th of April, and the package still hasn't shipped. They replied to my first email saying it would be about a week, but that was over a week and a half ago. They didn't bother replying to my second email. If I ever get my stuff, I won't be ordering from them again or recommending them to anyone.

I've been waiting two months for a fews parts from them, but I know they'll show up any day. It's a tough business and I understand that.

The wait is well worth it, they have some cool stuff that other people don't offer.

son of a............I so wish I saw this about 4 hours ago........I do know that there are eLaws about online retailers actually charging for parts that are not in stock or have not shipped.

I'll be making a call tomorrow for sure.

If the parts arn't in stock, I can understand that and don't mind waiting.

However, they can have no excuse for poor communication and failing to get back in touch with customers is unforgivable and they deserve to have bad publicity over their poor customer relations. Without us, the customer, they have no business at all.

Just a follow up. I called them this morning first thing, they answered, were totally cool, told me everything was shipping today and I did get a UPS notification/tracking number from UPS.

      Contemplating picking up a BRP in the near future and looking for some perspective.The current owner claims that the bike has about six hundred hours on it, but there's no way for me to confirm as the odo's not accurate.
       
      I know brp's have a reputation for running forever on stock top ends, but they must eventually have an expiration date. What should I look for on a high mileage bike like this to make sure I'm not setting myself up for disappointment? Also, What are some non engine/transmission related issues I should look for?

      Guys, 
      Have been riding my 650L for over a year and a half and have been loving every second! In August I moved back to Reno after finishing up my masters at Arizona State. I have been spending most of my time riding around verdi to stampede and the Dog Valley road area. Always looking for riding buddies. 
      Was curious what everyone was doing as far as Daves mods or jet kit for the upper elevations 4,000 to 8,000 feet?
      FMF Q4 exhaust, smog delete done so far!
       
      Thanks!

      Hey dear folk!
       
      I need your help.
       
      A bit of background info, I’m a complete noob when it comes to holding a wrench and doing anything more than filling up the bike. I have however had an interest for as long as I’ve had a bike to make it mine, and that’s why I’m writing to you now. I just bought a donor bike, a Honda NX650 which a friend of mine is helping me fix up and then modify to my liking (I’m hoping to end up with a gorgeous scrambler in about 9 months).
       
      We found a hairline scratch in the cylinder and need to bore it. This leads me to my question.
       
      Should I get a 1st overbore performance piston or keep the compression ratio as is? If so is there anything in particular I will need to modify to tolerate the high compression piston?
       
      If I do get the performance piston, should I also get a new carburetor, hot cam, and new exhausts? I am planning on new exhausts anyway (2-1 from an XRL) and I’m planning on removing the airbox and getting a K/N pod air filter.
       
      Again, keep in mind I know nothing, my friend has however fixed up a bunch of XRLs and cars but never really used performance parts. Help me out with the decision please, I would also like to keep the whole build to a reasonable cost (I know this is a very relative number).
       
      I should also add that I want to keep the DNA of the bike, for example keeping the fuel tank instead of switching to a smaller rounder one as one usually sees in most custom builds. The aim of the whole build is to have an insanely fun bike to ride, both in the city and off-road, as well as giving it a bunch of my personality 😊
       
      Thanks a lot for any help!
       
      Best,

      I've been rebuilding/restoring an XR650R for some years now (after toasting the motor in 2013). Sent the motor off to be rebuilt, had a local shop rebuild my forks and shock, and took care of most everything else myself.
      As of a couple months ago I had almost everything assembled and ready to run.

       
      As a final check before adding fluids to the bike, I decided to stick my boroscope into cylinder and take a look. The results were concerning.

       
      These boroscope pics looked so gnarly that I pulled the head off the motor to get a more thorough look.

       
      To say that I'm concerned is an understatement. I have pics of the motor internals pre-rebuild, and can confirm that this is definitely a new piston and replated cylinder. I also have all the old parts from the motor, so it does have a new cam, connecting rod, valves, and basically everything else I expected to have replaced.
      The builder "ran the motor briefly to confirm everything ran alright" and then shipped it back to me. I reached out to him with these pics and he said,
      The piston looks like this because he had it machined from 12:1 to 11:1 compression. The streaks on the cylinder wall are normal for one that isn't broken in yet. Regarding the valve impacts in the piston head: "My concern is that something may have passed through the cylinder. How does it run?" I've never run this motor. I can feel these streaks in the cylinder wall with my fingernail. Did he re-use a piston from some other motor?
      Is this dude jerking my chain or is this motor fine to run?
      He's a fairly well-known builder in the XR community and was recommended to me by guys in the (now-gone) XR650R forum.

      I got my XR600r dirt bike giving me a carb issue that I just can not get worked out. It starts first kick and idles well, throttle cracks off nice and crisp when you whack it, but if you ease into the throttle to just above idle it's a spit and sputter pile of shit! Lol. I can turn the idle speed adjustment up to a fast idle and it starts spitting and studdering just the same. Done a lot of research and it points to the pilot circuit. I put a rebuild kit in it and have taken it apart and cleaned it seriously 12 times now. I'm at the point of looking for a different carb body to try. They're about $100 though. A new keihn carb is $250 on eBay. Any thoughts? That pilot adjust screw doesn't seem to adjust anything until it's fully seated or falling out. It has ran ok in that idle to 1/4 throttle circuit before but it don't now. The last 6 removal/cleanings haven't made any changes, previous ones did improve the throttle snap when you whack it.
      The main needle clip is on the middle groove.
      I checked for air leak with some starting fluid when it was idling and seen no change to the way it ran, indicating no leaks. 
      Bike has stock jet sizes, foam filter, stock exhaust. 1,830' elevation here in South Dakota. 
      I'm baffled..
