+1

I about ordered a exhaust and found a full system on ebay after a month or so of looking. After I purchased mine I was still looking for a friend and came across about three more full systems for cheap. IMO i would be patient and just check ebay daily. Got my titanium FMF pipe and power bomb header for $250. Way better than $500 or more.

To me, Rocky Mountain is the Walmart of the offroad world, and they have their own house brands, typically Chinese made. You get what you pay for.

Interesting...I'm a 20yr engineer/35+yr rider, and I wouldn't make that statement about most of their products. I've got 16 bikes, and nearly all of them have an RM part on them somewhere. Not sure what experience you have that gave you that opinion...care to elaborate?

RM sells everything from high-end to low-end...and has fast shipping and reasonable pricing. Not sure what else you would ask for from an online store :busted:

I bought one of their Primary Drive O ring chain and sprocket sets for my KLX 300. After reading of many instances here on TT of these Primary Drive chains snapping and taking out an engine case, I decided to buy a quality chain. I still have the unused Primary Drive chain, any takers?

I'll take it. I've got a PD chain and sprocket set on at least 6 of my bikes...never had an issue. In fact, the PD chain on my KLX is over 2yrs old running on Supersprox. I've replaced the countershaft once...and it's ready to be replaced again. The rear sprocket still looks ok. Well over 8K miles with only one adjustment shortly after install. When I replaced the CS sprocket it was getting a little loose...but after putting the new sprocket on, adjustment was correct again. I haven't touched it. Hard to beat that service.

In my experience, an out of alignment chain, guide or other interference is responsible for chain breakage.

Had one on my YZ250F. Good product. Very very quiet even without trail insert. After about 100 hours however the chintzy clamp at rear didn't hold silencer too well. Can rattled around in there quite a bit. Enough to irritate me and make me find MotoWorks SR4 G2. Louder, yes but no way to rattle given the quality frame connection. Only $200 from Rocky Mountain.

IMO, Rocky Mountain is a great store.

I probably should not have said just what I said.

I have no experience with them, so what I probably should have said was "No experience with them or their products... but I hate cheap crap"

I seem to have a garage full of 1/2 price items that I thought would save me a buck or two.... and then when you have to pony up for what you should have bought the first time...... well, you know where I am going.

I agree, But every now and then you come across a cheap product that is good and in stead of learning from my mistakes i'll use all the info in can from ofthers to help to decide weather its a good option or should i just pony up the $$$

Thanks for all the info all might give this a miss and just wait to see if i can better setup for the right $$$$

agreed...low price is two factors for me....the one I first look at...then the last.

It's a heavy weight, but certainly not the dictator of the bout. :lol:

I have to say the older I get, the better I've come to understand the wisdom of others...often times you're paying for that in a higher end tool.

I'm a sneaker snob, I always have been- I don't know why. Not $200 sneakers, but name brands... Nike, Adidas, etc.

If I can find a good pair of Nikes on sale for $40 when they were $80 or $75 when they were $120, I am psyched.

So... I am at Wal*mart a few years back and I saw these sneakers that looked really, really nice.... I mean really, really nice. After making sure nobody could see me, I went and tried a pair on. The first thing that came to me was "...are you telling me that all these years it's been the player's endorsements and the naming of stadiums that I have been paying for?!"

So bought a pair. I wore them where nobody would see me and I promised myself that I would never look down at them..... the horror! Off-brand sneaks!

Within a few days some of the "coating" on the "leather" was coming off, a few days later the stitching started to give way, than the sole started to separate.

Now, I will say that there are times when price/quality/value can come together, but the premise of "you get what you pair for" still lives.

I was at Harbor Freight yesterday looking at torque wrenches...... I passed.

Sam: I keep askin' myself: what is the point to life?

Woody: Whew. That's a tough question.

Cliff: Ehh. Well, I got the answer.

Frasier: Somehow I knew you would.

Cliff: Comfortable shoes.

Frasier: Shoes?

Cliff: Yeah. If you're not wearin' comfortable shoes, life is just chaos. I mean the greatest accomplishments in history have been made by men wearin' accommodating shoes. Uh, Frasier, tell me, who do you think is the greatest thinker in all mankind?

Frasier: I don't know, uh... Jean Michel Bayle.

Cliff: There you go: Gaerne MX boots. Perhaps the most comfortable shoe there is. You hardly even know you have them on.

Artistic license taken :lol:

Once again i agree In part.

My work shoes $120 from a name brand most comfy leather shoes ever but i only get 6 months out of them till they fall apart.One day i was strapped for cash and had a sole blow out so i picked up a pair from Kmart wich is the same as your Walmart for $20 not the most comfy but two years in and still going strong.

My issues these days is the name brands get greedy too and ship all the manufacture to China and the $200 nikes these days come out of the same factory as the $5 el cheapo no name brands.

Its all about profit margins and quality is whats always going to suffer.

This whole issue comes down too why pay $350 +shipping for a name exhaust when i can pay $270 no shipping for something that will do the same job (for me anyway)

As for those who say wait for a deal .well here in Australia our demographic is a lot smaller and these type of things dont come up that often as for any moto parts in that fact and most of the time their the same price as ebay(Au)

and online stores(Aust) and for the most part shippping from the states is $60 - $80.

I bought one to look at when they 1st came out but didn't install it. Compared to my oem (250x) exhaust there was 1. no real weight savings,2. it only had 1 mount instead of 2 , 3. didn't have a heat shield 4. needs repacking. I stayed with the oem pipe,

The same would be true of almost all the aftermarket cans for my bike. For a MX bike that needs a quieter spark arrested silencer I think it's pretty good option. My bud ran one on his yz250f and other than repacking it worked out good.

When I got back into riding after 25 years off, I went to the local shop and bought my gear, figuring I'll ride for 2 weeks, get it out of my system, feel young again and be done, so I bought $100 Fox boots.

Not bad for $100 bucks but I kept riding (and falling) so they got a little beat. I upgraded to a pair of Thor boots for $140. Now, I really don't know what I was thinking because that's not an upgrade, I just thought maybe they were better.... something. Probably just wasn't thinking at all.

Fed up with the Thors and the buckles that never stay closed, break, etc, I went to my local shop and tried on & bought a pair of Gaerne SG10 boots. Aside from the fact that I need to widen the right boot a bit, they are like porn- every time you close one of those cam-buckle things it's like a porn-star nibbling on your ear. The pivot, the feel.... the fact that they don't snag on my side-panels, the buckles never come open..

If you ever wondered what it costs to have a porn-star nibble on your ear, it's about $500 or so.

And I agree, Panterra, as long as something works and the price is right.... it's all good.

I shipped many vintage enduro bike parts to AU and the shipping was unreal- but I guess everybody there knew it because whenever I would email and say "Uh, yeah... that pipe is gonna cost $180 to ship so if you don't want it I understand...." They would always reply "Yeah, that's what I figured.... send it"

The love the Yamaha IT's in AU! ***?
