i know this isn't a tech post but i just wanted to warn people about these folks

as i was reading about what exhaust system to use for the 700, i noticed a lot of you have the fmf 4.1, anyway, i typed it in google and came up these guys, they had the best price. so my son ordered it, and as with any online order we figured a week or so for delivery, now the drama unfolds, they say it's on back order(which is true i checked many other sites, and fmf always puts you on hold) so then we get another email saying they can't abide by their price! (bait and switch) anyway, don't waste your time with these people! see photos below! just a warning!!













now the emails

Sounds like they made an honest mistake on the price. That price would be a steal for the full fmf 4.1 system. I bought just the slip-on through a seller on ebay for $324 and before that the cheapest price I found for the slip-on was $295 but I missed out by a few days.

The full system is easily another $240 from the slip-on price.

I can understand why you would be upset with them but clearly that was an incorrect price to begin with.

What about this system on their site; 1831-0436 FITS: TRX700XX YEAR: 08 MAKE: Honda TYPE: Natural titanium slip-on - Mufflers $399.95
1831-0436
Supposedly this is a whole system but the way it's written, seems like a catch 22

Sounds like a general description of what they sell... full or slip-on... It doesn't say ''This is a full system''

This is all part of the description of the system that I selected and it does say:
Complete systems and slip-on mufflers
Systems feature titanium PowerBomb header and midpipe, except where noted

So which part am I reading wrong even though I could careless since I'm not planning on buying

thanks for the warning. even knowing the price is wrong they should still give you the price posted to show that they are customer friendly. i wont buy from them for that reason alone.

I agree, its no different than going to a big retail store & they have price posted right in front of you. They have to honor that price ..Why loose 10 customers over a $100 mistake? Suck it up & move on..But hell yes atleast change your price immediately...not weeks later ..just my 2cents:birds:

No offense to New Yorkers intended, but every single time I have done business with someone in that state I have gotten ripped off on time, money, and/or energy. I won't do it anymore. I'm sure there are many good people running businesses there, but I never found one.
