For a while I was the only one who had these seals and grommets and now it looks like some people are trying to copy what I have been able to match to OEM specs  :D

As in most cases it appears they are just winging it and not using OEM sizes, Grommets are way off and the seals are thin cheap knock offs without a spring backing :rolling:

Theirs:

I wouldn't mind but the parts that they are selling arent even correct for the applications which leads to more confusion for potential buyers, especially when they steal your description ! :wallbanging:

The GOOD SERVICE and quality of an honest dealer is worth alot more than the savings of dealing with EPAY. You provide the service and there is little that you can do to protect people from others. Its life. Good Luck, Rick

:ditto:

Ebay almost views the seller as the "Bad guy" these days.

Your not allowed to do much of anything besides pay fees. Even when the buyer is at fault or dosent pay you are always viewed as the bad guy :(

I have done business several time with blackjackjakexxis and he is a good honest seller. If he can get you parts I highly recommend him.  Just my two cents on this...Too bad about those people out there trying to copy what Bolens 1000 has done. There is always a bad guy out there somewhere. We are lucky to have good people to work with on the forum.

Yeah, the reason I started this business was to give people an alternative to get the correct & quality parts for their machines instead of the sketchy "Aftermarkets" that most sellers were offering and now it appears there are even more of them! :wallbanging:

 

The funny thing is these Ridemasters only used 2 grommets not 3, the throttle didnt have one so once again the wrong info is being put out there :wallbanging:

 

Not much you can do though, just hope the people know what the correct parts are and order accordingly..... :wave:

. That's false info there all ridemasters used three grommets two down on the fender an one on the throttle kill switch plate All three are the same size that's why I purchased four of them from you the other day now I have one extra one. Not a big deal just want to make sure you know what is correct number needed

Some people find it easier to copy a great idea than come up with one, as long as we know who started it we'll be sure to use the BEST

 eBay makes it so darned easy with their: Have one to sell? Sell it yourself  blurb.  Unless eBay change recently all the new seller has to do is click on it and it is all there for the taking

. 1700214 is the grommet number for the one on the throttle plate It's in the manual not sure maybe it doesn't appear in the late model manual but I know they still used a grommet cause one of my late models that's original has the grommet Also the original grommets have a rounded edge as well
