xrsonly sucks.. Do not buy from them.

Obviously they will lie to get it.
Msybe they should sell socks with handles, so you can hold still while...
I hadnt done any business with them, guess I am lucky.
I ask those same questions when I order stuff.

Thumbs up :thumbsup:to both companies.
Does anyone else have;
Negative Companies --> companies to avoid!
Positive Companies --> companies that go the extra mile to help you and make sure that you are a satisfied customer?
I think we ought to have a list of good and bads to keep unknowing people from getting screwed.

On the other hand the guys at baja designs really were awsome..... and Rob Barnum is a super nice guy who took a bunch of time on the phone with me to give me the inside scoop on the BRP engine and mods i was considering.
Its sad to hear that they basicly told you that your busness was worthless, thats NOT the case, they need us All to stay in buisness.
Thanks for the post.

Maybe everyone should e-mail them and tell them what they think of their company. I did.

Now, I have had problems with B/Designs, but the difference is they handled the problem as if it was their fault(it was) and took care of it ASAP.
All vendors will make mistakes here and there, but how they handle it, and their attitude makes the difference.

Perhaps you should call XRsOnly and ask them if they have any customer oriented service such as a money back guarantee for misrepresentation.
I sure won't buy anything that I would need right away.

They don't, but I do....I guarantee I won't be sending any money to them for anything!

mikey c. is worth working with there and the owner is a good guy too. however, i'm never going back there again because i had a run in with some piece of high desert trash mechanic they had working there. he made me feel like a total squid because i asked him to help me with a cable routing issue one day. this, after i drove all the way up to the high dez from redlands to return the XR250 PIPE they sent me on accident. i thought, what the hell i'll load up my bike and have them take a look.
he was looking at my bike and telling me how bad i screwed it up. then the owner comes out to make things right and the ape mechanic stands 5 feet away from me and tells the owner "see, these people try to work on their own bikes, they screw things up, and they come here and expect me to fix it for them."
i was floored. first of all i wasen't expecting anything except to return the PIPE THAT THEY SENT TO ME BY MISTAKE. second, i wasn't asking for him to fix shite. i was asking advice, bro to bro, or so i thought.
so the owner comes over, is totally cool, laces a new throttle cable shows me some of the issues i was creating and it was a learning experience...what i was looking for.
i drove home and talked to others and got the same result. if you deal with xrs only work with the owner. everyone else will screw up, make you feel like a knob, or waste your time.
it's too bad things have come this far for xrs only. they have so much history and have contributed to the xr big time.
but they are a victom of geography. i think the combination of sun, dust, and meth, makes it hard form them to find good help in hespiria...
while i'm on the topic, two places a xr rider should frequent: precision concepts and ims

I find a freindly attitude (if high prices!) from Baja Designs.
But the best for our bike has got to be Rob Barnum. He was Al Bakers protege for years, and now his knowledge of the BRP is as good as it gets. His operation is smaller and scrappier than the big guys, and so (as is often with hungrier small businesses) his attention to detail and service is much better. Plus he is a thumpertalk supporter. www.barnumspro.com

I don't need anything else right now and I will certainly watch this space for more info on the good people to buy from. Also got a part from Barnum, really nice quality and fast turn around.
Just my .02.
