No offense but they sure as hell aren't going to send you the parts before you pay them, no one does that, you wouldn't either if you were in their shoes.

How did you get in contact with them and what were their prices like including shipping to the US?

Maybe you can paypal it over?
I emailed the company directly and asked them if this was an option but they said they currently do not paypal as a payment option.

I'm realatively new to purchasing items over the internet (don't even have a paypal account) and something about transferring money into the company's bank account just doesn't sit well with me. Most of the sites I have purchased items on require a credit card number but do not charge the credit card until the product has been delivered.

I have contacted Tsukigi Racing, a Japanese company with an office in the U.S. but their prices for the "Bikers" parts are 290% more expensive before shipping and tax. The benefit is that they have a paypal option which elevates most of my payment concerns.

I'm in Canada and I just ordered the frame sliders, adjustable folding levers and stabilizer bar. Including shipping etc it came to $300 CAD. Pretty good. Let's just hope I actually get them.... :S

I actually just ordered frame sliders, front and rear wheel protector, engine guard set and the adjustable handlebar from Tsukigi Racing (they sell Bikers merchandise). It cost significantly more (he gave me a discount and charged less for shipping) but I feel like the premium I paid for the parts I got a little more assurance that the parts will arrive because I paid through paypal.

Only problem I have now is that it will take about 5 weeks for the parts to get to me because they are coming from Japan and some of them (don't know which ones) are not in stock.

Bikers told me it will take about a week to ship to Canada. About the same time as it does to get stuff from the states lol. Gave me my tracking number and I've been tracking it. Its currently loaded in a container and making it's way across the ocean.

CorSport can get bikers parts, I have them on our PCX. But we have to do large orders with them (to the tune of 2k), if anyone is serious about putting some money into one of these bikes, let us know, i'll order some parts as well and we can have the rare stuff. ;)

Bikers is a good company here in Thailand.. I think that if you WANT to pay using Paypal then in the email suggest a Paypal premium an extra amount to pay via Paypal.. At the end of the day using Paypal can be a pain in the arse if you are not a native English speaker (just noticed Paypal now have a site in Thai, thats fairly new. maybe link that in your email).
https://www.paypal.com/th

There are costs involved for the merchant using Paypal.. and here in ASIA money talks.

There are costs for using PAYPAL, but my bank quoted me $40 just to do an international wire transfer. That is serious money. They just need to stop playing around and get a CC machine. Pretty much any legitimate company should take paypal or cc.

Really.. well here in Thailand 7/11 do not even have CC machines. I bet they do in the USA.But not here. It is very much a cash system. You can transfer funds easily via ATM'S something you can not do in the UK.. so every country is different.
But paypal is an easier thing for them to sort out and i'm sure if enough people ask they will.
But to say they are not legitimate is way off the mark IMHO

just think how much business they are missing out on by not using those other forms of payment.
You should be posting on a Thai expat forum. You'd fit right in. :rolleyes:

Saying that to a Thai would be as useful as saying it to a brick. They're experts at everything, you can tell them to do something 50 times, they'll agree, then do it the wrong way that they originally planned to anyway. Then deny it when they've ****** it up. It's a great country to do business in.:eek:

which is exactly why i'm very weary of transferring several hundred dollars to them.

No, Macca i did see your thread. It still makes me nervous to just wire transfer that much money without a guarantee like paypal or a credit card.
