I ordered a OCEMN needle and a main jet from them because they had them in stock. I didn't ask for a toal because I had a pretty good estimate on the toal cost. Boy was that stupid:o The needle was 3 time more expensive than ordering fro Carb Parts Warehouse or Sudco and they charged me $13.00 for freight for a 1 pound package being shipped from Ohio to ND. If that isn't bad enough, when I called to complain the parts person ( who is the owners wife) told me they didn't care if I took my business elsewere. I expained to her that I have worked in the Motorcycle/ Powersports industry for over 6 years and order parts through mail order or the internet for over 15 years and had never heard of such a ridiculous shipping cost. She told me they add $6.00 to every shipping cost to cover the cost of boxes and shipping labels. Sure looked like the box had been around the world a couple of times.....sure hope they didn't pay $6.00 for it:scream:
I have to echo the sentiments of Coach. Holeshot has a "we have it, you don't" attitude, so if you want it you PAY! The rest is inconsequential to them. Admittedly they have a good website. However, it's like public television, if you really want a C/D of the Three Irish Tenors you go to Amazon.com or similar. Nevertheless, if you feel guilty you’ll send $250 to your local PBS station, get the C/D, and have the warm fuzzies about knowing you have supported the cause. There is all the info of Holeshot here on D.R.N. maybe more.
Yes now i know where KTM gets the reputation for expensive parts..I priced some stuff from Holeshot, and yes they had everything, but pricing was a LITTLE higher than Cyclezonektm.com Actually if you live in Canada, I have found A&E in brooks AB. to be great.:D
Ditto... I won'tbuy anything from them anymore. There's just no need. Threads like this about Holeshot have been going around for years on all the different BB's and I can't understand why they are still in business. They do have a loyal till the end following for some reason.
Unfortunately another vote in support of NEVER using Holeshot. Exactly the same experience. WAY over priced and a customer related arrogence that is second to none. Everything they sell can be found else where cheeper and with a smile.
