I hate windscreens...

Well I got my Puig DB in today. All excited went out there to put the sucker on, thought a few bolts here and there and wham new windscreen... WRONG! The little rubber pieces of sh*t that hold the dang windscreen on decided to fall into my headlight mount. Impossible to reach by any other means besides taking off the whole fairing. Well I now know the ins and outs of my front fairing and headlight and I have a puig now. Still no sign of the holeshot, strange since I ordered the puig a few days after the exhaust... I also got my TWF shirt today, now I can be styling the forum all over knoxville and the gap.

Hey don't feel too bad Vol. I think I may have gotten ripped a new @ss hole on the Puig DB screen I ordered! The place I ordered it from on Ebay has NOT responded to any of my emails I have sent him except the first one telling me his address where I can send the check.
He still has NOT cashed my check, and I sent that out LAST MONDAY! I am continuing to check my emails, and bank account, and as of now he still has not processed any transaction! I know it was only $65.00 but this is BS!!!

One other guy that purchased a windscreen from him must be having the same problem because he left him negative feedback saying You have not responded to numerous messages, and still no transaction is made. Which he have him a big fat negative feedback.

Oh and Vol...I've got my deals gap t-shirt that I will be sportin down there.
I don't know to do. maybe wait another week.

I had the same problem with an ipod case I ordered off eBay. The guy never responded. I received the case like 3 weeks later without any warning or communication. I paid with paypal though. You can get your money back a lot easier that way. Some of these ebay shops are like one chinese guy with a truck full of junk and he doesn't have time to play on the computer besides posting more auctions...

That's what I'm thinking also. This guys ebay store claims he accepts paypal, but there is NO paypal option when its time to check out. I NEVER write a check for anyhing on ebay, which I ALWAYS use Paypal, however with $65.00 I wasn't too worried about it since it sounded like a good deal.

I know the guy has been back on ebay because he has added a ton of listings and stuff to his ebay store since I bought the windscreen.

I would still rather be in your position. I have no clue when my exhaust will get here, but have my windscreen...

Oh I found someone that has a sawzall and works on bikes for a living and says he can do it for 10 bucks. So I am going to take the lazy man's way out and pay the man to cut off my pipe.

send him an email telling him you are going to stop payment on the check and leave bad feedback if he doesn't communicate with you within 12 hours...then do it. the stop payment fee (my bank is $32.00) is cheaper than the $65.00.

Sometimes, you have to get peoples' attention before you can talk to them...
