Ok i had the worst experence with Daytona today. Not sure if Adam and Jim are allowing Dealer bashing but i feel it is important that you fellow riders know whats up.
I went to Daytona today becuase i needed a clutch shaft oil seal. The parts guy (nice guy but doesn't know shit about bikes or how to find parts in the books or on there comps) told me the day before that there was a box full of seals and to bring my old one in and compare to see if they had one in.
I go there today and Nope the seals were tottaly not even close to what i needed. Bomax had also told me i needed a clutch leaver so being at Daytona i asked if they had any in stock.
The list price was $60 i said to the guy that has to be a mistake. He checked with the owner (who pretends like he isn't the owner) and said ya that is the wrong price. He (the owner) then preceds to look in a book and then tells me that it $42.50 with tax. I asked if it was a whole lot cheeper at BK, if i could return it. He said no returns.
I called BK but as ussual there was a huge hold time and long line up at the parts counter. (Probably becuase they are the Greatest!!!) So i decided to buy it anyways at Daytona thinking that it can't be that much more then anywhere else. I then stopped at BK on my way home just to see what the price was there.
I totally had no problem paying $5 more even $10 i could of handeled. But FUKIN!!!! Twice the price!!!!
BK wanted $20 taxes in. I JUST PAID $42 for the same peice. Not Kawi orig an after market leaver.
So at this point i am pissed. I drive at warp speed back to ScamTona and go to the parts guy (the nice one) and he know exactually why i am back. He told me he knows and he can't do anything about it i would have to talk to the owner. The fat fuk down stairs.
I go to the fat fukin fag mad as hell but trying to be polite. I told him that i would of been fine paying $5 more even $10 more i would of takin up the ass. But Over twice the price!!!! That is just rediculous. I ask for my money back seeing as i was just in not more then 30 mins ago. The FFF (Fat fukin Fag) has the nerve to say "I told you no refunds". I am boiling at this point. I point out that i was just bought it and its still in the sealed bag. He says nope, no refund. I now am not being polite at all. I continue to tell him that I will bad mouth his buisness on all the local bike boards. I meation BCom and BCSB and 604.
So now he gets up in a huff (fat belly hitting the desk as he stands, and says that he is taking off a 20% restoking fee!!!!! What the fuk!!!!! I snap. How the hell are you gonna charge me over $8 dollars for something that i bought less then 30 mins ago????
I say you will give me all my money back. He says he won't. Then i tell him just give me my money or i will start kicking bikes over.
He preceeds to give me my money minus the 20%. As he is doing the transaction i ask him in front of a customer how he can justify ripping people off like this. And i say no wonder how come Daytona went out of buisness the first time. He throws the leaver back at me and tell me to get out of the store. One thing lead to another, more words, more threats and finally he give me my money. I lost 8 bucks but it was still cheeper then buying it from them.
I am soooo livid with that place. How do they run a buisness like that?
I will get my revenge but i will not say how here cause that may incrimnate me. They better have insurece.
DO NOT GO TO DAYTONA no matter how bad yo need something unless you like getting raped up the ass and then having to pay for it on top of it.
BK thank you for being such straight shooters!!!!!
