BUYERS BEWARE

THIS SELLER SELLS DAMAGED PARTS - I specifically asked Ghost31711 prior to sending payment if the mid fairing was scratched/damaged because I couldn't tell from the pictures if the marks seen in the picture were smudges, bug guts, scratches etc and he told me there were no scratches/damage.I gave him $90 shipped for the fairing, I received the fairing in the mail then took it out of the box to find a broken mounting tab, scrapes/scratches, lots of rock chips, nicks/marks in the decals etc. along with the fairing being completely covered with dirt and grime inside and out. I tried to reach a reasonable outcome asking for a $25 partial refund and he refused.

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS GUY!!! pics are below.

Hi everyone, yes i do sell damaged parts but every time i sell a product that is damaged i take a picture of it and make sure everyone is aware of it, just like what i have done with the Tail, and Tank, at the beginning of my for sale thread. I specifically point out the damage and make sure you are aware of it, even if my camera pics don't pick up.

The buyer only feels he over paid becuase he claimed that another member had offered him one in a better condition AFTER he had paid me

The tab that is being lifted by a finger WAS NOT IN THAT CONDITION when i packaged it into the box.

i was aware of the wear marks in pictures 1, 4, and 5 ONLY. and i openly admit that to him but i do not consider to be damage by his standard or my because from the picture i posted, marks of similar proportion is clearly visible. The wear marks do appear to be sever in his picture because he is focusing on them and blowing them out of proportion.

I consider Damage to be : Major deformation, Paint fade, melted, cracked, or severly roadrashed fairing.

this is what he saw for sale:



The top yellow circle is the wear mark in picture 4 of silverbullet's post, it is clearly visible and obvious imperfection.

now the 2nd mark in the circle happens to be oil smear, but it looks like a scratch, why didn't he bring this up with me if he was concerned?

The buyer noted on his paypal payment that the payment was for a *mint* right fairing. I didnt give it much thought when i saw it, but then he later used these photos as a threat for me to refund him $25 or he will file a claim through paypal . In his e-mail to me he said it was not worth what he had paid and another member here had contacted him AFTER he had pay me for a lesser price The fairing in its new condition goes for $320 -$370 at bikebandits.com i sold it to him for $80.

The fairing is off an 2005 Cbr600rr, and has been used for 4 years, before i posted here for sale, every 03-06 600rr owner knows that piece of fairing is placed directly behind the front wheel and about 1 ft away from the ground, and needs to be removed for oil change, coolant fill, or even to access the storage box. How can anyone expect the fairing to be mint?

I have sold many used items through the internet, have never had an issue till now, I use the same screen name and sold stuff on my350z.com, my feedback there is proof i am an honest seller.

The other members part has nothing to do with it at all I only mentioned it because the other members part was said to be in mint condition for less. I specifically asked if there were any scratches or damage because of the circled locations and was told NO by GHOST31711, That tab didn't brake itself and was not broken by the packaging and you can tell from the dirt/grime etc. During Paypal checkout I noted this is payment in full for a mint condition right mid fairing for a 05' CBR600RR only because I was told by you that there was no damage or scratches. Even if you take away the broken tab that doesn't explain the scrapes at the lower part of the fairing where the lower fairing attaches. Your dishonest plain and simple!!! I'm not trying to get over on anyone I asked if there was damage and you told me no, you lied to make a sale and that is it. You could have done the right thing and made it right but you decided not to so that makes you the shady person.

And I did open a Paypal claim but Paypal said they only support claims based on shipping like if you didn't receive a package etc and do not support claims for quality of items etc. So now I've been shafted by GHOST31711 and Paypal. I should have called and cancelled the sale and went with the better/cheaper part but I'm the type of guy that wouldn't do that sort of thing once a deal is made. I guess I'll have to rethink that in the future because of A** holes like GHOST31711.

now he's resorted to name calling and charactor bashing because he did'nt get the best deal existed. If the other member's part has nothing to do with this why do you keep mentioning it?

I've tried to hold back and avoid unnecessary conflict but your insults are taken things too far and i've had enough of your lies. You said the fairing arrived completely covered with dirt and grime inside and out ? really? it looks pretty clean from the pictures you posted. Did you clean them? could you have accidentally broke the mounting tab while cleaning them?

Did you plan this all along because i wouldn't reduce my price? you purposly noted your payment for a "mint" fairing dispite my pictures showing obvious wear so you could use it as evidence? is that why you did'nt ask for more specific pictures of the fairing or is it becuase you are a moron and that's just how you do thing?

take a picture of the whole fairing, lets see how bad those DMAGES are, common, show everyone what a piece of sh*t you got for $80.

This is just my 2 cents as neutral party......silverbullet, dude you paid 80bux for a fairing!! Yeah you might have specified *MINT* but if you wanted mint maybe you shoulda paid the $350 for a perfect part.
Ghost, my suggestion is next time in your classified just say the part is *less than mint*. I thought your photos were decent enough for the price......and if that retainer clip that was not broken before shipping I can't/won't say I dont believe you but for anyone that has taken off fairings before that clip seems to always be the first piece to break when removing the lowers....i personally hate the way it snaps together.....I think this whole situation was just a misunderstanding and not an intentional fraud.

Any broken tabs should always be mentioned in the classified IMO.
i compelety agree with you. Look at the my for sale thread and you will see i do point out damages if they exist.

i am not out to rip people off and i am not desperate for money, but i have my principles and i will not back down to a fraud like silverbullet.

If the piece had a broken tab while in my possession i would have considered a serious flaw which must be noted to all interested buyers, but it wasnt broken when i shipped it.

look at how suspeciously clean the area surrounding the crack in comparison with its surrounding, why is that?

I removed the fairing from the box, looked it over and took pictures. I didn't clean the part, the inside was the worst. Point is that I specifically asked if there were any scratches/damage and you lied. The tab was broke wether you noticed it or not before shipping. Calling me a Fraud is useless because anyone who sees the pictures can tell you ripped me off and lied, if you knew the fairing had the other issues why did you lie and say there was no damage or scratches when there is obviously a good amount of scrape on the lower section in the picture which is not shown in your original picture. It is what it is, your a liar and a theif who stole from a fellow forum member looking for a replacement part. I just hope others will think twice before dealing with you to save them alot of headaches.

You didn't clean them? ohh my, its amazing how a piece of fairing fairing "being completely covered with dirt and grime inside and out" has such nice reflective properties in your own picture.

do you think people on this forum are stupid and blind? and don't realize that you are contradicting your self and lying? How can you make a completely false statement and call me a lair?

Anyone who sees your picture and read your post can tell you were dishonest from your description of thing and that your blowing things out of proportion. why don't you put it under a microscope, i'm sure it'll look even worse.

I did not steal from you. I had an item for sale on this forum and posted a picture that accurately resembled it's cosmetic condition which you looked at for a month before making payment to me.

You paid me on Friday evening, and i shipped it Saturday morning exactly like i had promised. I did not steal any money OR time from you.

I HAVE NEVER IN ANYWAY TOLD YOU THE FAIRING WAS MINT! YOU INTENTIONALLY ADDED THAT YOU YOUR PAYMENT WHICH I HAVE NO CONTROL OVER! THEN YOU TRIED TO BLACK MAIL ME FOR A PARTIAL REFUND OR ELSE YOU WILL FILE A CLAIM OR RUIN MY REPUTATION ON THIS FORUM? YOU"RE CALLING ME AN A**HOLE? A THEIF?

common, post a picture of the whole fairing, better yet post a picture of it installed on your bike, lets see how damaged it really is.
