fork delivered badly packaged... should i use it?
so i just bought some f4i forks off of ebay to replace my crapped up 919 forks. they were advertised as being taken off of a 2006 with 3000 miles.
one of the forks arrived today... it had some cardboard wrapped tightly around it and taped, but there was no padding. the end of the cardboard had opened up, so i can see the bottom of the fork leg peaking out (and there is a sticker from usps stating the package arrived damaged). the second fork hasn't shown up yet - i guess it'll arrive tomorrow (unless it was damaged even worse...)
there is no visible damage to the fork itself, but i'm nervous because i have no idea what may have happened to it in shipping - dropped, stuff dropped on it, etc. if it is straight is it good to go, or is there more subtle damage i need to worry about?
i can't believe the seller packed it this way - especially after he told me he was going to wrap it up really well when we spoke on the phone. i've had good ebay experiences, but this is my second bad 919 ebay purchase in a row... i think i've had it.
