Frequently Asked Questions
We ship almost everything using USPS. We have found that they do a better job at getting your packages to you sooner. We may drop ship your order from the factory and upgrade you (for no additional charge) to FedEx. We also have to ship Hoods, Chassis' and Tunnels on sleds or Frames for bikes and Atvs by truck. They require an addition $185 shipping charge (in the USA). Frames that are serial numbered may require you to send in your serial numbers.
We try to make sure that all your shopping is secure and hacker free. We have GeoTrust SSL Certificates in place to insure that your purchase is protected...
Are Your Parts Warrantied?
Yes, most of our manufacturers warranty their parts for defects for 30 to 90 days, depending on the items. We will replace any parts found defective. Warrantied parts cannot be exchanged for other parts or refunded. If you have any questions please feel free to call.
There is an additional charge for large items. Sled hoods, frames, tunnels and fenders for ATVs among other large items. Each will be on a case by case basis. Hoods and Frames and some Fenders generally run $185 extra shipping to a Business address (any large item that has to ship Truck Freight). Subframes and tunnels run about $100 extra. Most ATV fenders are an additional $65ea. Again, these are on a case by case basis and all have to go standard freight. Canada and overseas orders will be calculated and you will be notified as to the additional shipping. Generally it will run 50%-100% additional.

If your cart is still empty after you chose "Add To Cart" at the bottom of your screen where the parts are priced. You either have "Corrupted Cookies" (no compliments to the chef on that one) or temporary internet files.
