Is the universe telling me not build the 2-stroke?
Had the most frustrating 24 hours on the web.
1. Found the pistons I need at a great price, reputable dealer.
Website has drop down menu for both "Australia" and "QLD" but I couldn't proceed because I didn't select shipping method.
Fact is, I couldn't. No drop down selection, no box to tick, nowhere to even type it in. Gave up.
Tried again tonight, recognized my return and subsequently doubled my order.
Not only could I not proceed due to the previously mentioned shipping method, it requested I join.
Then it didn't like my password, too weak. So I used my internet banking password. Didn't like that either. (it has upper/lower & digits)
Meanwhile it invited me to send an email if I had difficulties.
So I entered a password with more than 8 digits using upper and lower case, plus numbers;
Sent an email and it instantly bounced. "Your message has been rejected, please find another method".
2. Need a custom kick start lever made, can't buy a new knuckle so shop for the cheapest new complete OEM kick start lever.
Bargain found, in the UK. Great as I need to send it to Nigel in the UK to fit a billet arm that suits my needs.
Then Nigel can forward it to Johnny in the UK who will bring it out in his luggage in Sept.
Pay-pal will allow me to ship to another address. Great. I copy and paste the address from Nigel's website, it corrects the format and asks for confirmation.
Needs a delivery Ph number. Copy and paste Nigel's Mobile. Non-comprenda! - I type it in manually. No! - I double check. No! - I check format against Johnny's #. No!
I input Johnny's # No! - I input my #. No! - I input landline numbers for all 3 of us. No!
Fuck! I give up.
3. I need the twin fans (left & right) from an '08 - '16 Yamaha R6.
Found in the USA, one dealer with both fans great. Separate listings, bugger.
Numpty here finds "add to cart" on fleabay. Woohoo. who's a clever boy then?
While going back to retrieve details of the second fan to add to my basket, I get an email from Pay-pal to say my purchase is complete. WTF!
Ok, so I am going to email these pricks and say I'm not paying double fucking shipping.
So while I'm preparing an email to the seller via fleaybay with details of both items, "ding". I get another email from Pay-pal, "Receipt for multiple purchases" WTDF!
Sorry Beetle, but you'll have to get your own fucking Rossopuro CARC bar. It will disappear for sure if I get involved.
