store logo
hondaeasttoledo


Dear jd31goalie,
===========================
2nd notice - Please Respond
===========================

Bad News. I just found out the windscreen has been discontinued by Honda.
I am very sorry.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Your order is on hold
and will not ship until we can get this squared away. Full order details
appear at the bottom of this message.

Please let me know if there is a comparable item in our store that would
be an acceptable substitute for you. If not, I can cancel the item and process
your refund.

Thank you for shopping with Honda East Toledo. We look forward to doing
business with you again soon.

Regards,

Rand Phillips
eBay Sales & Service Team

this was on backorder for over a month now all of a sudden it's been discontinued? i think these guys are messing with me.

I also ordered an OEM windscreen for my 919 about 6 weeks ago. Honda has it on back order with no est. ship date. My Honda shop verified status the part is not discontinued by Honda. They said if I could find one in stock somewhere I'd be better off. I called Ron Ayers and checked if they had one they said they would need to order it. I explained what the Honda shop told me they checked same deal. I left my order open at the Honda shop and I may see one in the future sometime. Good luck.

One thing I don't understand is how can you sell something on ebay and not have it ready to ship?

Anyways, I do believe that your dealership is not lying to you. According to American's Honda Database, the item is definately DISCONTINUED.

Now, I have seen items go into Discontinued mode only to appear again with a different part number and with slight changes (if any). This is due in part by Honda changing suppliers of their accessories but don't hold me to it... seek a replacemente elsewhere (read: Aftermarket Companies).

If you look at where it says "PC", underneath that you will see 70, 41, 88 & OTHER with zeros to the left of it... those are the A.H. warehouses and the zeros represent the quantities on each one.

if you bought off ebay and it said they had it, rip them with some negative feedback and report to ebay.

I about didn't buy one when i got my bike, glad i did.

Im not sure what is going on with the windscreen, but I can testify that Honda East is a reputable place. Around here they have a pretty good rep, and I have dealt with them several times and been pleased every time. In fact that is where we bought the wifes 2nd bike, a used Suz. savage 650, And then not that long ago we bought her brand new SV 650 off of them. I wouldnt think that they would be yanking you around for no reason. I cant blame you for canceling the order though, I would have done the same thing. Good luck trying to track one down, there has to be someone somewhere with one just collecting dust in the back room.

Knees in the breeze!

When I purchased my windscreen back in 2002, the dealer insisted they didn't exist untill I got the part number off the Hornet's Nest site and had them look it up. Anyway, you might be able to find one through a European Honda dealer if you are willing to pay extra.

The remark about EBay and a negative response.
Well, that is discontinued also, just like the windsheild. There are no more negatives, only positives with several remarks about service. If someone just outright skins you alive, well, I don't know about that.

really buyers cannot negatively rate sellers now? I heard sellers couldn't negatively rate buyers, but didn't know it swung both ways. Sounds like it is going to get harder to find trust worthy ebayers.

The same thing happened to me with the Shift Racing Avenger jacket. I ordered one from motorcycle superstore and they said it was backordered and then discontinued. I found one in stock elsewhere, then a month later the original place had them for 50% off. $100 down from $200. I was a little steamed.
