Blacks are a bunch of toss**s they back out of deals without so much as a phone call to tell you...........
whilst not knowing your circumstances re: the above I can report good and not so good in my dealings with blacks I have received the front discs from them and they seem V good for the money - so pleased so far - However I had to make a call to them about the rear which hasn't been shipped yet and have been assured that it is in hand and will be shipped in due course.
so my experience is so far, mixed, but I do agree there communication to the customer is lacking as I have has to do the calling.
PS thxs for the offer liz but I couldn't impose on you again!!
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
I have bought 3 bikes from Black's and offered advice on the purchase of another (VFR 400) to daughter's BF in the past 7 years.
Very mixed picture. All were low - end cheap bikes, none more than £1500. One of them was a complete heap of junk, and had to have a complete engine rebuild, but 2 others, my old XJ900F and Becky's 250 did what it said on the can. However the XJ needed carbs balancing and they said it couldn't be done (?) The VFR had hidden things wrong with it, but a lot of persistance actually got them fixed.
Time for another addition, not necessarily bike related, but could be useful if you're looking for some odd sized battery for that electronic gizmo thats just stopped working. Handy for alarm remote batteries.
YEY thats 16 seals in total,when cleaning the calipers I noted rubber seal sticking out from two pistons so must be warped or not put in right last time so figure need to replace all. have found a supplier for £62 now getting better lol, still need a drink though.
