    Fullbore fenders (latest email)

    so I figured i'd hit up Fullbore to check on the status of making 250R fenders (again). here is what I emailed them (over the weekend):

    hello:
    any updates on making fenders for the trx250r (red and white). i'm in desperate need of them. willing to negotiate $ on a one time run for me?

    I did recently purchase some blue ones from you.

    thank you for your time.


    AND THE RESPONSE WAS:

    Joseph, we are working with our supplier to receive Red, White & Black this winter.... (October/November)

    Sorry it will not be sooner than that....

    Grant

    this is pretty much the same response I have been getting for the last 2 years or so. i'm going to continue to ask until I get a firm NO from them. I know we have discussed this numerous times before....if you are in need of fullbores please call and or email them. hopefully one day they will make the fenders again. by chance is anyone local to them??? a visit in person might help.


    later
    joe

    I keep sending Grant emails time to time as well and he's never said no, just can't give a time. If he does make them again I'm going to buy a few sets.

    Thanks for checking again. When and if they make them again I'm ordering a few sets. I need new fenders for all my quads sooner or later. And I still like Fullbore the best.

    Has anyone ever got ahold of them on the phone? I've called numerous times and left messages with no response. I didn't even say I was looking for 250r plastics just said I'm Interested in plastics they sell. Might be part of there problem they don't call people back...

    Maybe you can get Carlos to meet up for a ride with you on his 363R

    Wayne, you'll like this. Looking at some of his old threads on the other site and I just laugh...sorry for derailing this thread.

    Comment & Questions:

    Had my engine rebuilt by BDT Motorsports in early 2009 (Bad Dog Toys Motorsports). My cylinder was on its last leg, grooved, little or no compression. BDT bored, honed and Hard Chromed the cylinder, matched a Wiseco Piston and BDTM custom made plated rings (BDTM has full machine shop)...motor runs stronger than ever, awesome compression. Had lots of 250R's, this one is at the top of the power output list for a 250cc displacement.

    Question: is anyone else running Hard Chromed Cylinders? I have been told by the owner of BDTM they will outlast anything else, any comments based on experience or knowledge? Looking at my piston and rings shows NO wear, lines or groveā€¦

    Saving my 250R cylinder, honed, chromed, custom rings came to +$650...not inexpensive, however; worth every penny to date for performance and longevity.

    Carlos.

    Back when racing was booming around here at least up till 2006 or so I sold quite a few sets of fenders. My Dad and I still have a small repair shop on the side out in the country. We used to or maybe still are a dealer for Fullbore. Problem is I have not placed a order since ~2003. And back then we got them for $400 a set plus shipping. And back then that was quite a bit higher than like say Maier's. Now I don't know what they would be today. If I could get some and have them drop shipped to you guys I would. But with shipping nowadays it does not make sense to have them shipped to me and then shipped to you. I will have to get a hold of them and see if our dealership is still valid. Some places drop you after not ordering for so long. I do know with alot of this stuff from there is not alot of wiggle room when compared to like atv galaxy prices. They are very hard to beat...especially on their LSR stuff. In that sense places like EBay are killing the small business owners.

    I just cant believe fullbore wouldn't make a run after all the requests. Thats just bad business practices.

    I agree, and I am in need of Red, White, and Orange... but it may be the Maier route if Fullbore cant get their act together.

    I think it's come to that, group buy and get a deposit together so people don't back out last minute. I think there are enough members that we could get s descent order together.
