Ebay Buyers beware! Reactiveracing

I bought some Suspension legs off Ebay from the seller Reactive Racing. The postage costs were high and added to the message that if I was overcharged, Negative feedback would be left. I was charged £6.49 and actual costs were £3.15. I emailled him and got this response.

"As an experienced ebay buyer, you will be aweare that the Post and Packing costs are exactly that.

In this case the Postage costs amounted to: £3.15
The costs associated with packing the item (material, labour, etc) amounted to £3.84

All postage and packing costs were clearly identified on the auction. If you were not happy with this then you should have not bid. (incidentally, the item you purchased was a complete bargin, as the retail at well over 100 gbp new)

If you are not happy with the purchase, please return it and I will refund all monies due"

The box was an old Wickes box with and so therefore costs were unjustified.

As per my instructions, negative feedback was left and I recieved the followin message:

pathetic! seriously.

I hope to bump into you at a race track soon. we can sort out this in person

He then adds the following feedback:


(I have sanitised the comments!)
Avoid this seller at all costs! He clearly has no customer service skills and is desperate to make a fast buck from postage.

Awesome eagle eye headlights

Well I doubt I will ever be brave enough to buy a conversion like this but saw these and the think they look amazing. I find that a great deal of headlight conversion often look tacky and dread it when I hear of angel or demon eyes. These however seem tasteful and do seem to suit the lines of the bike.

New rear suspension link (AKA Dog Bone)

As a fan of making the CBR1000RR that little bit better, I stumbled across a shock linkage from Lee's Cycles.
The Honda CBR1000RR comes with a standard Shock linkage of 175mm. HRC provide these in different lengths (170mm-172mm) to change the handling of the bike.
The Lee's cycles link is 170mm long and is based on the HRC version at a fraction of the cost. 
HRC List 4 different links listed for the blade:
1) 52470-MFL-R10 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION R1 (Standard) 2) 52470-NLR-A20 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION (MEL) 166.2mm 3) 52470-NLR-A30 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION (P2) 178.8mm 4) 52470-NLR-A40 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION (P4) 170mm
In Brief, MEL is the most aggressive, P4 is less aggressive, P2 is quite flat and the unlisted is offers the characteristics of the P2 but adjusts ride height.
The idea in general gives better rear grip on the rear and raises the seat somewhat to transfer some weight to the front of the bike. 
Besides the obvious advantages to the handling 5mm means less material and a few…
