Default Stuff NOT to buy

Do NOT buy a Volar Motorsports stator cover becuase the bolts that hold the stator in do not line up.

Do Not buy ANYTHING from Ideal cycle I got there Undertail in and the plastic is good and well made but the electronics are so cheap they used a piece's of PVC pipe to hold the light in place and the LED they sent will not work hooked it up to multiple source at different OHM's and nothing.

To top it off i have e-mailed both companies and no responses. I have also called Ideal Cycle and the women on the phone offered no help but to spend another 20 dollars for new LED's plus Shipping

I would hate to see some one else get ripped off by these people.

Yeah... on D2moto, there are reviews for the Strator cover that say the bolt holes don't line up.

dont get a volar motorsport integrated tail either. i had one, and ended up breaking the bastard. total piece of garbage. crappy make up, flimsy as all hell.

and DONT EVER GO TO XTREME DISCOUNT CYCLE EITHER!! thats the guy i got the tail light off of, and i initially sent him a message asking for a wiring diagram to see which wires go to which, and he sent a message back, telling me that they dont have one, and if i cant figure out how to wire a simple integrated tail light, i should just keep my bike stock cause all ill do is chop it to bits and ruin my bike. i have the emails to back all of this **** too. he's just a total douche. no customer service, and he's rediculously rude. i did nothing to warrant it, and he just snapped and started insulting my intelligence right off the bat. refused to give me a refund, despite the fact that he has his return policy posted on his webpage, and i was within the 30 return period. he was just a douche. ill never deal with him again, and i dont want anyone else getting screwed by him also.
