Lets start with the first item I bought a few months ago.

A banshee cylinder head.
This is the auction description:
Minkia38 said:
You are bidding on a mint Yamaha Banshee engine head. This came off of a newer Banshee that ran perfectly! Head is ready to be installed, this is a factory head, and it will work on any year Banshee 1987 - 2006. There is no pitting on the inside.
The picture:


Looks nice right? You see the word MINT, NEWER?
Well the one I got was a ratty POS that looked beat to death.
I have no pictures of it cause the day I got I actually sandblasted it and later PC'ed it.
I did send him a message about his definition of MINT and NEWER and he said hey it's used and he has 10 more like it so he just used a picture of one of them.

2nd item
A set of axle nuts
Heres the description:
Minkia38 said:
You are bidding on a set of Banshee axle nuts. These are the large nuts that hold the axle and its components together. These will fit any year 1987-2006. Excellent shape, nothing bent or stripped out. Ready to install.
Picture:


Not bad looking and one of the nicer sets on there that day.
I click the buy it now before I noticed the $12.75 shipping.
OK I'm totally at fault! I figured it was comming UPS or Fed ex.
Fucker sent them USPS in a envelope!!!!

These are what I got:
Some shit that looks like it was drug behind a truck and spray painted silver.
I expected something like the pic, get them and put them on.
I put these on and they will be the shittiest piece on my bike.

I used to buy a lot of stuff off of Ray but am seeing more and more of these stories around the 'net just like this one. His ebay feedback rating is pretty sad nowadays too.
I had one bad experience with him and he went above and beyond to make it right by me so I can't say I dislike him or don't trust him yet. He sent me a new set of hand guards because I was unhappy about some plastics I got that were trashed so I kept the plastics but he sent me the guards to smooth things out.

Yeah Ebay should have new rule, you get what's in the picture of the auction.
I'm happy lots of you got what you payed hard earned money for thats the way it should be.
If you know me you'll see I'm an easy going guy. I tend to give the benefit of the doubt alot of times which is why I even bought from him again.
You dick me over 2 times in a row and I lose all respect for you.
You shouldn't have to read a description and see a picture of a part someone is selling and then spin the wheel of luck on what you really get.
Last time I messaged him he said I could send it back for a full refund.
This time around he didn't get that privilege straight to bad feedback.
The nail in the coffin was the blatant rip off shipping charge, I'm sorry.
$14.75 to send me junk shit in an envelope? Don't give me that "but PB what about the handling charge?"
What I call handling includes care, time, and the cost of packing.
Give me $10 to drop 2 nuts in an envelope everytime and I'm your newest star shipper.

no really bro they are perfect.
I'm keeping these. I've already sanded them down.
I'm gonna blast and PC them.
I didn't plan on having to do all that though.

I remember you offering me that head man and I appriciate that I really do, didn't know about the axle nuts haha
Ima pretty proud guy tho.
I try not to ask for stuff unless it's offered up and even then if I can afford it I'll spend the dough on what I need rather then take something from a nice person.

if he has a zillion banshees up i na barn somewhere in michigan ..then i dont understand why he needs a generic image of the item being sold?? he cant take 10 seconds and snap a shot to show the buyer what they are actually getting for their money?it would be different if it even somewhat resembled the picture shown but dang looks like those axle nuts were rototilled up in some bodies garden

Motor city atv screwed me to

I just recently ordered a crank case for my 1999 banshee. I waited about a week for it to arrive, anxious to get it on my atv. The auction description said that it was in perfect condition, just had to put it together. Nothing wrong with the motor just wanted to part it out. When it finally arrived, I opened the box and it had a whole where the connecting rod blew threw the top case. The only reason I noticed right off was because I moved the antifreeze tube. Then I tried to contact them to return it, got the voicemail for hours. When I finally got threw to him, he said that he didn't handle the returns. I emailed him the pictures of the damage and he said that I would have to pay for the shipping for it to go back. He said that the shop was going to be closed down for about a week before we would be able to deal with any returns, he acted as if I lived right down the road instead of states away. People should sue him for false advertisement, just about every advertisement says great shape then you get shit. I should have left my busted motor together, it ran better than the piece of crap he sent me.
