Bike just showed up and looks good overall, but one part is for a linkage bike..I am sure John can call me and get it fixed. Aaron edit....turns out about half of the parts are wrong, so bike doesn't look good overall anymore...but John is making it good by sending parts next day air..

Have you tried calling or emailing Medina? Forum communication has to be one of the worst and slowest ways to contact a vendor.

Hey Aaron, congrats on your purchase. Im sure Bob/John will be in touch with you as soon as they get a chance. What are you missing, or what part is for the linkage bike? (I am assuming you bought a non-likage klx?) I may be able to help you get what you need.

The forum contact was just a last-ditch effort. John's phone rang a couple hours ago, but now it goes to an "unavailable" message.

Now I need a complete rear brake system and a skid plate....not in any of the three boxes???




Thanks fellas..... Aaron I have your skid plate covered, as for the rear brakes I cannot help you, but I know Bob/John will. I believe they are down to the last bikes, and have had trouble with warehouse idiots messing up orders. All thats fixed now for the future.....and Medina will take care of you for whatever it is you need.

Thanks for the help! As it turns out, Bob and John cannot help me out. They are out of parts accoring to Bob. I will be returning the bike, or the 2/3 of a bike, and will go buy another bike. I just missed out on the opening race of our series based on the promises made by John. Not to mention a hundred bucks in sourcing parts that I needed, like electricals that I got from PitsterPro....they said they would 2nd day air them and they showed up.



Issues were:

No pipe - no big deal, I have a KLX pipe already

No electricals - no big deal, I bought them from Pitster

No seat- I got a thumpstar/50 style seat in the box?????

No rear brake system at all - ????

No hardware for the tank/subframe/etc - some fasteners, but still???

No skid plate - ????????????



I even waited for John to "be sure" that the only things missing were a pipe and the electrics for the Z155. This is not the case and I am stuck sitting out.

"Issues were:

No pipe - no big deal, I have a KLX pipe already...Told you no KLX only a CRF pipe.

No electricals - no big deal, I bought them from Pitster...Told you no 6 wire harness's in stock

No seat- I got a thumpstar/50 style seat in the box?????...Correct

No rear brake system at all - ????...Correct

No hardware for the tank/subframe/etc - some fasteners, but still???...Correct

No skid plate - ????????????...Correct"

Yes, we are out of All rollers except the photo-shoot TTR, 3 RML kits & 6 Front end kits...

It looks like it may happen after all. John called me and is ripping apart a personal bike to send me the parts, so we may be able to pull it off...rabbit out of a hat style.

Just for clarity, I just listed the issues as completely as possible. I understood that there was no pipe or electricals. I agreed that those were no big deal and that it was totally fine with me to ship without those parts, as I would source the electricals on my own and I already had a KLX pipe. I thought I had posted it that way, but it must have been in a pm or something.

Turns out John was unavailable temporarily taking care of kid issues....I have kids myself and I would have done the exact same thing, so my faith is renewed....but they got hosed by their shipping arrangements on the Gen 3 bikes...wow.
