I have had some pretty good luck with flea-bay sellers in the past, but the last few orders I placed were less than stellar IMO. I ordered 2 long inner 90* NGK spark plug caps a few weeks ago, and what I received was smashed flat in a plastic envelope, which in it's self would not have bothered me, except the spark plug rubber boots were also missing. In retrospect, and it reviewing the pics in the ad.. It was not assembled properly (someone totally clueless took the pic)



This is what came:


No biggie, but the rubber boots are gone.



Ok, on to the next order. I ordered a new OEM 11060-1067 Cylinder base gasket. Great price..



Until I got the package today and inspect the part:



It has the racing tear in the right side. That is a high performance mod I guess since it isn't listed in the description. I am awaiting the return label, or what they are going to do right now. If it is refunded, it STILL takes weeks to return it, then to see any money reappear in my bank account. Now it they ever figure this refund crap out that money goes back in instantly, like my money comes OUT instantly, flea-bay would be easier to deal with. Buyer beware. :S



I already sent back the plug caps. It was only ~$9.00 for the caps, and the base gasket was under 10 bucks with free shipping too.. Under different circumstances I might have re-used the rubber boots off of my old caps, and the base gasket could be glued with 3M gorilla snot or RTV, but HEY! they advertise new undamaged parts, I want new >undamaged< parts. Otay? :-)

I hear ya brother. I feel that if I just accept junk, no one will learn that is not acceptable. When I return the item to the store / seller, whatever it might be they learn to up their game.. no mater if it's wally world, Home Dpot or flea bay.

I returned the incomplete plug caps, so they can send them to someone else. Fuk them.. someone else will end up with them. I ordered the short outer plug caps and the "NGK" markings are not painted white. i may or may not paint that in with white enamel., but they are all there and came in a box so they don't look like the fat lady sat on them all the way from peoria on a greyhound but seat. :-)



I just NOW received a email reply to my gasket return request. Here is a copy and paste.. obviously not proficient no inglaze.. No? LOL


New message from: coronamotorsports951 (5,211Green Star)
Mr. Sir,
I am sincerely sorry and apologize sir.
Go ahead cancel the returns requesting,
I am shipping out a new one today.
Go ahead disposal the bad one.
Sincere,
Sammy

Finally she can do something for herself. Her boyfriend wanted to spend her tax return on other things. Not in the cards bud. More things to do. B)

The new cam has a better picture but low volume and buzz so I'm stuck with this one until I can get one that works correctly. :angry:

Got a message from the seller;
OK, we could send you a new replacement camera directly without other accessories and no return is needed, you could keep the parts of the old camera for use. But could you please kindly help to revise the negative feedback to positive?

We are very sorry that the item you bought from us is not good enough and really sorry for the unpleasant using experience that the item brought to you. But thank you for letting us know the imperfect place of the products, we have sent a feedback to our supplier and asked them to improve the quality of the product in the future. Could you please just give us one more chance?

My reply;
If you send a working cam I will be happy to change the feedback once I know it is not defective.
Thank you

Like the last one they try to get you to change your feedback before they send the replacement or issue a refund. This guy has 18 negative feedbacks on the cams this year for the same issues. One says the replacement cam won't charge.
If it happens again I can file a claim, get a return shipping label and return the whole mess to get my refund.

Looks like this may be the last video for this cam. While looking at my last clips the picture quality does seem to have degraded the last couple months. The new one shows out for delivery. Just for the hell of it I used the defective cam for going into town today. This was yesterday.

New cam looks good but the sound is tinny. May be able to adjust it in VLC or Movie maker. Gonna take a run into town and see how it does.

You can see the guys refection in the bottom left hand corner of the windshield. Looks like he was kneeling down next to the bike. This is why I leave the cam on when I'm in the store.
