Default Re: Find a Dealer & Review

I recently bought a 80cc (66cc) RAW engine kit from Zone 8 cycling.
During installation the CDI spark plug cap broke off a piece.
After contacted the dealer he gave me all kinds of excuses to
avoid the warranty issue. Frustrated, I then fixed it with two part
Epoxy. Later, the plastic joint of the throttle where cable enters
the handle cracked. This time I did not waste my time to call Zone
8 cycling. I just used two small TieRap to reinforce it. The motor bike
was finally started and I am in the break-in mode. Honestly, the
kit is cheap so I did not expect a super quality to begin with.
However, the attitude that the dealer treated the customer was
horrible. My two cents here: Because the parts are weak don't stress or
tighten them too hard during installation. Use TieRap to reinforce
any weaker plastic parts. Use Locktite to assist the fasteners. Most
importantly, take advantage of this forum to find a good dealer
who can take good care of you when things go wrong. Believe me it
will. I wish I had checked in before I did my purchase.
