What happen to "Quality control"?



Finally got my front rims and there are blems on them, 5 legs. Chrome will peel off over time



Facing the wheels 3 deep scratches!!

Don't the manufactures look or do they just send to see if people will complain?? Waited a long time for some of this stuff so the blems don't bother me too much but I am just worried down the road the manufacture will not honor the warranty.

Dude, the bike looks great so far. I love the tank. I sure hope the tank isn't sitting on the mounts cause its awful close to the rocker box's. I hear ya on the blemishes in the chrome. Some times I wonder if they do exactly what you said, "wait till you complain"! I went with mostly polished stuff so I can buff out any imperfections. Keep the pics coming...

AO, tank not mounted yet, still have to weld them in. Will wait for the front end before I weld in the mounts for the tank. Hows your build coming along - pipes back from correction yet?

Hey Dude,
Love that sled man. The prostreet is cool looking. You were talking about the tank mounts... are you going with the flush mounts or not? I just finished installing the Fat katz flush mounts tonight. Sorry no pictures tonight, I left my camera at work. Anyways, mine looked just like rippo anyways.
I hear ya on the quality control issues... but waiting for replacement parts makes the scratches etc. look not that bad.

Looking at your rear pulley/brake set up. Does it look like the rotor bracket will mount facing forward and still let the rear belt pulleys line up?? Hope so for my sake. :-))

Have any problems with the engine mounts?? Everything line up?
I had some problems with the front engine mount being too high.

later

No flush mounts for me. Going to take some welding classes this fall - eh Rippo. For the driveside braking system I can't tell cause I don't have my rim yet Will need a spacer between the swingarm and pulley though so the bracket will be flush with the tubes. The problem I had with my front engine mounts was that they filled the old holes and grounded it down a bit low so I had to use shims other than that the inner primary mounted up nice to the engine and tranny.

Dude,
Yeah I got my new pipes and they look great. I also got my wheels in last week and Weld fucked up "AGAIN" and my rear wheel was left side drive, right side brake. All of the paperwork says RSD / RSB. They also shipped me a LSD pulley. When I saw it I went crazy and started chewin their ass. They are supposed to be building me another wheel and pulley as we speak but I haven't heard a delivery date. How in the hell can they screw it up so bad? Guess they just don't pay close attention to the important shit. Front wheel was fine. Man I hate incompetent people!!!

Can't believe you guys are having so much trouble with Weld. They were great to me. First wheel did have a yellow spot in the chrome, but they let me keep it and mount to use for my mock up while they made another on. Once I received the new one they requested I send the other one back. No problems since.

Dude - lookin good! Mine is almost done with paint. I will be posting more picts of the paint later tonight. Stay tuned!

AO, did you post pics of the pipes yet?? I'm going to be shopping for a custom set due the RSD thing.

I see that the public can order directly from weld - wonder if it would be quicker and better service because you are the direct consumer instead of a shop (so the shop takes the hit?)

I haven't had a chance to take any pics of my pipes yet. They are definitely top quality pipes. Been too busy at work. I will definitely do it by the end of the week.
The main reason I ordered my Welds through a dist. is to get a better discount. At this point I would have gladly paid list $ to get them right the first time. I'll know more on the delivery of the new wheel & pulley tomorrow.
