2 weeks ago I ordered an item from them and it had not arrived in what I thought was more than reasonable time so this morning I called them. Turns out the item is on back order. This would not be a problem if they had contacted me to let me know of the situation. I was counting on it to be here for last weekend then for this weekend and had I known I would not be getting it from them I would have tried to get it from another source. Me thinks I won't be ordering from them any more.:P

Honda Direct Line is slow, but they can supply things that a lot of other places can't and their prices are about as low as they come. I bought a brand new OEM seat for my '93 1500, it took them about seven weeks to come up with it but the cost was only $168.

I had the same experience, lack of contact, other than that they are inexpensive for good quality parts...

I can agree with the good prices but if I didn't want it until 6 weeks later I would have waited 5 weeks to order it and I would like to be informed if it's going to be a while.

I got the same treatment from NAPA up here on belts and I had prepaid for the parts. The bike would have still been sitting on the shop floor in pieces if I didn't call them. Ended up getting ones from Mother H.

I once waitedover 9weeks for carb parts...May to Aug.

Spent my weekends/weeknights working on the house...with tears on the nice days that summer. The company yanked me a week at a time with a load of good excuses & promises.

I betcha one of my customers is upsit with me too. I have this one who has not paid me. He called me Monday and said he had an apartment with water leaking out of the ceiling.

So I told him, you know the Piggly Wiggle Store on the Corner of the road by the interstate? Yes he says. Well I told him they have drinking straws for sale at that store, hows about you go buy yourself a box of them and go suck up all that water. Kit.

Hey fellows not trying to overlook your bad luck with shipping, this just popped into my head when I read this. I will tell one of them things like this sometimes. I also have a good one for those salesmen that call me all the time. Kit

The 1800 is my bike. The very best motorcycle ever made. I was enthralled with my first test ride on this machine. It is a great bike.

I have found that if I am going to use them, I will check bikebandit first to see if a part is discountinued..... I have found honda direct will allow me to order a discountinued part which will jack up the shipping fee..... you get the point

If I need an OEM part bad enough, I just call Keith at my local Honda dealer. He let's me know right quick what is available and where it's located.

Hi David,

I had exactly the same thing happen to me. I was buying a present for the other half, and allowed 2 months for it to arrive. It came a week after her birthday. I will not be ordering anything else from these people
