warning stay away from preferred power sports of syracuse

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

yeah it could be an honest mistake, but why waste everyone's time, it doesn't take but a few minutes to have their web guy change it. also i believe we are going with this one, and its in stock.
