Just got swindled...

Hey guys be careful who you buy from and make sure the seller at least gives you pics of the item and all it's bits and pieces before you buy. I just got swindled for a comp works eliminator from M//drei. Told me the part came off a 2011 675r so I assumed it to be the newer model eliminator. It was missing screws not to mention that the two that I did get with the kit didn't even reach the swingarm. Gave the guy a call and pm and no reply. Watch out guys.

That sounds more like miscommunication. Not really getting swindled. But I understand your frustration.

Sorry, don't know why it double posted.

The Comp Werks FE I have for my 2011 gets attached to the underside of the storage tray just aft of the battery. I thought the swingarm mounted FE was for pre-09 Daytonas....

Like my grandfather always said - Watch out for that other guy.

yea it is. thats how i knew it was the wrong FE. he said it was for the 2011. oh well i guess. cant file a claim with paypal since i gifted the money cant show up at his house and demand a refund or try to work things out since he used a PO box instead of his own address. ive tried contacting him and nothing. guess the only thing left to do is try and sell the mount for A LOT less than i paid.

yea there were a couple red flags i should have paid attention to. just didnt think anyone on this forum would rip others off. it is my own problem and there's not much that can be done.

BTW is paypal name is CBR something something. He ****ed me on ohlins forks, took about 2 months to get it all straightened out with paypal. I asked them to investigate/lock down his email, do SOMETHING to keep him from doing business anymore, but they didn't pursue it further. It would be to their advantage to do it too, because they lose out on the transaction cost AND they had to pay (pay pal did) for my return shipping. Oh well >_>
