i had a similiar problem before so now i take precautions if i buy of forums i ask the seller if he/her has sold anything before on the forum and what the butyers username was or i look through his/her old post to see if he/her has sold items before and responses from buyers
Thank you to all for your help and especially to the admins for help with my forum member who took payment and never sent item. I have tried contacting him via here and personal email with no replies so after a month its time to name and shame the member as Stevieblue09. Do not buy from this person
I have a similar problem. I bought a tank cover from a guy off the forum. He said he bought it for his Mk1, but it didn't fit as it was for a Mk2 and advertised it as such. I bought it from him. I don't know what bike it's for, but it doesn't fit a Mk 2 that's for sure. Now I can't get a respo
Cheers people, Its been 20 days so far, I will give it till end of next week as the person hasnt been on the forum since the 13th so may be away, I will keep trying to message them and find out. Thanks again guys
unfortunately there are no moderatable rules with buying and selling, most we can do is contact the person and hope they either deliver the goods or offer a refund. buy and selling here is all about/risk/trust.
@Davemccomiskey....the two dels share parts but the rf motor is liquid cooled and the mk1 bandid oil so ide imagine they use different cylinder blocks. Dont take my word as gospel mind im not an expert.
