Armourbodies....WTF???

I figured I'd let you guys know my experience so you can plan accordingly. I ordered a set of Armourbodies Signature bodywork for my 600RR on Monday October 1st. I told them the only way I was ordering is if they could send me the bodywork in 2 weeks and they said no problem....

Well it's been 2 months and I still have no bodywork!!!! I'm about to got tell these guys to F-off and give me a refund. This is just getting ridiculous. Oh and followed up about every other week with them and they keep saying it will be going out the door in a few days. then they tell me there was a delay the next time I called. I finally called 2 weeks ago and they said it shipped....yeT I still have no bodywork. What's up with that?

They know your repuation so they are in no rush to get it to you. You need to know how to close the deal first.

Drop nesba at nesba DOT com an email and share with him your experience. I know those that have the bodywork love it. I am planning on getting a set this winter as well.

That's too bad, cause my Armour bodies are 100% better than Hotbodies and are easliy repaired as opposed to Hotbodies. I hope you get your bodywork soon.

Talk to Tom Tiernan he can get bodywork from Attack. He has a set on his 07 GSX-R750 if you want to check it out. The fit is great.

Attack does have some real nice body work though. The finish on there stuff is the best I've seen.

[QUOTE=JRSMAIL;952292]Are you getting paid by him?

Nope not getting paid buy him, he couldn't afford me as he is practically giving this stuff away. JK



No but on a serious note I try to support Tom as he is not trying to retire off of his sales. He does it as a part time thing (after his normal job) to help other members out and try to relieve some of the cost of this expensive hobby for himself as well as others.

So within 12 hours of sending an email to NESBA, Bob Blandford has already contacted the CEO and got Armour Bodies to respond to me. It's funny how they can't just return my phone calls. Anyways, I didn't ask Nesba to do anything as this isn't their issue, but they stepped in to help out as usual. Got to love NESBA folks.

It may drop his lap times, but it would up his classy points dramatically, and he needs all the help he can get in that category
