Tk Race Products?

has anybody dealt with TK race products recently?
I am trying to order a steering stem and bearings from them but they are not responding to emails. They have no phone number listed and tell you to contact them by email and pay via paypal.
I am trying to get what I need to put a KX85 front end on my crf100 and they are the only ones who show a steem designed for that purpose.

I wouldn't risk it. Sites that have bad communication are also the same ones that don't update their inventory regularly and take your money even when they don't have it in stock.

they were actually recommended to my by folks who had bought from them before, but they have not responded to the emails at all. If you know of someone who makes the stems locally I would prefer that, but do not know of anyone who does that, and these folks have made that specific part for that specific purpose, but if they are no longer doing it but still have the site up, then I need to get to work finding another source.

I've done business with them before and had no problems. I receive the products just as stated and they worked well. I don't think it is their main source of income though. I think they have regular jobs and do their business on the side.

I imagine the demand for such a product is not real high. The guy building the parts likely does it out of his passion for the sport, not the money. Given those factors, he probably has a real job, and we all know life can get in the way of our hobbies at times. How much is the order total? I say take the risk and let paypal sort it out if there is an issue, especially if he was recommended by people you know or trust. We can't possibly talking about a lot of money here...

ok, I heard from them... they have been having machine and supplier issues...
they will not have any stems available for another two to three weeks.
That is ok with me, I am in no hurry.... just nice to know that the parts are still available.
