Default Warning

I ordered a part from Cycle Parts Nation, an online parts place similar to Bike Bandit. The part I ordered was substantially cheaper than elsewhere. However it's been two weeks now and aside from an initial order acknowledgement I've heard nothing from them. They won't answer any emails. Avoid this vendor.

I looked for "Cycle Parts Nation" and came up with M&M Motorsports in Kalamazoo MI. Is that the same place?

Yep, same place. Here's a phone number: (269) 381-5800. As you can see by this link, same place, different name:

Cycle Parts Nation | Events

two weeks isn't REALLY that long to wait. The place is a dealership so they're going to order your part through their supply system and forward it to you as opposed to an online shop like M-USA or MAW that maintains a stock..

I'm actually in the same boat, I ordered a speed rotor off a place in Mi. because no one local had one, I subsequently found out their delivery date was 7-17....it would have been cheaper and quicker to order it locally. Live and learn I guess

Hell, I waited for over two weeks for my Knuck top motor mount. I can excuse em, because they probably had to make the thing while I was waiting.

However my complaint isn't about the wait as much as it is about their inability to communicate. All my calls and emails go unanswered. F*** them in the future.

Yeah, they should keep you posted as to what's going on. These a*holes in Michigan aren't any better

Send your name and order number to me and I'll sick my wife on them.. She loves to do that sort of thing.. She does it for people all the time.. Also it helps me cause all of her negative energy is not directed at me.. She then loves t brag about how what kind of deal she gets i.e. We got a 19 ft camper trailer for the price of a 16ft cause some guy hit it before took delivery. They wanted us to wait for another one or wait to get it fixed. Wife said no way.. I never hear the end of it...As long as she is doing something productive I'm cool with it.
