There's an old thread somewhere that has good and bad dealers named.  If this guy has ripped you and others off I'd name him in a thread and warn people to avoid. Also consider banning him.
March 05, 2014, 17:14:13 PM
Is it worth making a member feedback section in the for sale /wanted section so when a person buys something off somone they can add feedback  to the seller's thread?
March 04, 2014, 18:58:08 PM
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
March 04, 2014, 11:56:53 AM
Its people like that which ruin it for anyone else trying to sell stuff here. Really disappointed.
March 04, 2014, 09:37:40 AM
Yes, that's the guy.
March 03, 2014, 21:43:12 PM
Hmmm is it the same guy scammed Bugsplatter and Daftgeordie?
March 03, 2014, 13:25:12 PM
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
February 27, 2014, 18:56:11 PM
PM admin with username. At least he can keep tabs on anyone who may be a dodgy seller
February 26, 2014, 11:52:24 AM
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

I got stitched up for a 500 car deposit and paypal would not refund! Bank got it back within 7 days due to distance selling regs and the fact I'd not had anything for my money.
February 25, 2014, 11:29:03 AM
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
February 24, 2014, 20:32:06 PM
try contacting them again, keep it polite, as they may have something going on at home/be away on holiday, give it a decent amount of time and if its still a no go, name and shame!
February 24, 2014, 20:18:50 PM
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.
February 24, 2014, 20:10:20 PM
who and what was it bugsplatter
February 24, 2014, 18:58:37 PM
What do you do when you buy an item from a member on here but never hear from them again once they have the money and never see the item arrive?

Bit fed up now, because after pumping loads of cash into the bike its suddenly playing up.

The problems started one day out of the blue.  Essential some gear changes feel notchy and sometimes you click up to select a gear and find your still in the lower gear when you release the clutch. Going down the gears is fine, it just changing up. Obviously its the changing up to find you didn't select the next gear which is scary/annoying/worrying. I have done and oil and filter change, rebuilt gear linkage and set the slack in the chain & lubed it and it still happens. It also does not happen all the time, some rides it wont even do it....other times it does it all the time. The clutch does not drag in gear and neutral is easy to find.

I am stumped  Cry

Think it is behind the clutch basket mate icon_thumright


THINK i may have solved mine. I took the linkage off the pedal was fairly stiff on its bush. I had had a new bush machined for it out of some phossybronze and it was done to a very precise fit. So seems after a bit of use and getting gunked up it got stiff. For now just cleaned it out with GT85 and lubed with some chain wax. Seems buttery smooth by hand now.....Well see how she rides on my 40 mile trip home tonight.

here you go, if the circlip has come off of the gear change shaft sprocket side the shaft can move towards the right, and the two pronged spring can fall off the end of the locating peg, and give the exact symptoms you describe or if its broken... But first id have all the linkage to bits to check. dontknow dontknow dontknow dontknow

Just an update, done 90 miles over the weekend and problem solved  icon_thumright     My gear lever is some cheap Chinese affair and the bushing was made of marshmellows and pie tins, so i had a friend of mine machine me up one out of phozzy bronze. This was such a precise fit that as soon as it got gummed up with road crap it had almost seized, hence making gear selection notchy at the best of times. Now its all lubed up again my gear changes are the best they have ever been, silky as you like, with fresh oil and fully rebuilt linkage/lever.
