Experiences with Tekarbon?
So back in December (the 12th) I placed an order with Tekarbon for a twill weave under tail and lower heat shield for my 09 R1. As stated on their website, a "custom" order (ie. twill weave on non stocked part) can take up to 7 weeks to fulfill. I was very patient and waited until the end of Feb to contact them. I was told they have received a larger number of orders than usual and may take longer than expected. Last week I emailed them back to ask just how long that would be so I can make arrangements to get the bike back together. It has been now 7 business days (excluding Easter) and have not heard back from them. I'v called twice to only get voicemail, and left a message with Clara. My order was paid in full back in December, and I have received the order notification as well as confirmation my order went through from Clara.
Has anyone ordered stuff from them before? Any issues? How long did it take? If I can't get ahold of them I'm going to open a dispute with Visa and get a charge back.
When I bought the R1 it had a twill tank cover, chain guard and hugger all from Tek installed by the previous owner. The CF itself appears to be good quality and fits well so I figured I'd order more. So far I am not impressed..
Guess Il be riding the Ol' reliable 919 long before the R1 gets put back together...
Till next time, Brrraap
