Purchase Online

I am thinking of picking up a front sprocket guard from Maxmcdirect.com, but their web site does not give the warm and fuzzy feeling like other online retailers..

Has any of you guys purchased from this site before and any problems??

Thanks

If you need a front sprocket check with Dan Kyle. http://www.kyleusa.com/
He sells AFAM which I highly recommend.

If you pay with a credit card you should be ok either way. Usually a mail order place will have an 800 order number, call and see if the vibe is better...if not, move on until you find someone who is savvy.

I have bought direct from the following companies with excellent results:

KyleUSA
Sato
AFAM
PJ'S
Jardine

Try calling the company direct...you never know. Good luck.

Personally, anything I can get local I do, unless I am sponsored for something non local. but even before that if I could find what I wanted and needed I got local. It really helps the shops out and keeps them around as well as the more that buy from them keeps the prices more reasonable.

Is the guy that bought $10,000 worth of PCIII's directly from china going to be around to help you map it?

Not when it comes to my local shops. They are all a rip off. PCIII for $500 please I hope they all go under. Kinda funny how they have all the same prices for the same stuff.

Daymn that's a nice shop!! I'd support them as well. But most of the ones around here are like previously mentioned. I buy on-line when the price is the best or less than shipping costs.

yeah in your situation I would buy online too!

My general rule is if it is within 20% to a max of $150 Obviously depending on what it is, than I buy local but I try to buy local as much as possible!

+1

but i only give'em 10% slack...keep 'em honest, keep 'em in business

btw, i consider sponsors of forums that i frequent, to be "local" ...share the wealth, what goes around comes around, don't run with scissors and all that...

Right that's why we need to send Dan Kyle as much of our money as we can. So I can get a deal on a group buy for SATO's and a PCIII (when I say we I really mean all of you guys hehehe)

I buy online to avoid sales tax. Taxes are too high and I hate giving the man my money.. plain and simple. I live in one of the most over taxed states in the USA, and I disagree with how my money is spent. This year they have a $1 billion surplus and won't refund my money. Eff them! Anything I can do to prevent funding them is good. Less money to the politicians, cops, and courts! More of my money I keep, the better! Too bad my local shops suffer... cuz there are a couple I really like. Oh well?

1.2 billion in the black actually, yet we have the highest, bankruptcy rate, highest divorce rate, worst credit scores, worst highway structure (IMHO on the highway)
Dude sales tax here is not bad at all, income tax is the killer.
