I've been running Saber pads on my 1100 for years, haven't had a spot of trouble with 'em yet.

Wingstuff have different prices for different makes but here is one of their cheaper ones, remember that the front and back are different.

I wouldn't buy from Sabersuckle if they were last place on earth to get Wing parts. I'd set my Wing on fire and ride it into a vat of gasoline before I bought a damn thing from them.

I would avoid them simply because of the on and on and ongoing trouble with this vender. Let them know that good customer serve = sales and not the other way around.

Guys, I'm absolutely sick to death with the Saber bashing on this forum.

A few have had some bad experiences IN THE PAST.

I once challenged the members of this forum to post something that had happened TO THEM DIRECTLY, and RECENTLY.

Nobody...again, I repeat NOBODY could do it.

Yes, we all know that Saber HAD some problems in their customer service department, however, I feel that they're trying to correct those problems, and this constant dredging up of old grievances that didn't even happen to you doesn't help anyone....So it's time to knock it off.

We all have our preferences, and our reasons for preferring the things we do...but our personal preferences, and stories of what happened to someone's ex-wife's best friend's sister's husband's 4th cousin twice removed are no reason to bash a company or person.

Simply put, if it didn't happen to you, then you don't KNOW FOR A FACT that it happened, or happened the way you were told, thus you have no business bashing someone over it

i put the sabe cycle brakes on my 1100 they worked ok but i rode 3500 miles in one month bike broke down for 2 weeks and put 1500 on it this month i ride ALOT

everywhere to do everything even in hail and 80mph winds no problem yet

i burned off the rear brakes in the first month rather than buy those i went to the honda shop and picked up a rear set for 40bucks and they are holding up better than the saber cycle ones obviously maybe better brand and material

it is NO diffrent than buying brakes at autozone which im sure you all know if you buy the CHEAP brakes at auto zone they squeak after the first rain and burn off in a month and then take the rotors with them when they go

so if you find a more affordable website to get these parts from which they have tons of almost everything

tell us so we can go to them i have had no problems dealing with saber cycle on anything.

Buy at your own risk - and don't expect any customer support if anything is bad, because they won't admit anything IS bad, and blame it all on your installation.

Saber Cycle Sucks.
Enough said.

MD --
Water pump - purchased for my 1100 refurb.
Installed correctly, leaked almost instantly.
Pulled the pump, upon close inspection (and measurement with micrometer), found the distance from shaft center to the prop edge was offset, causing the vanes to hit the casing wall.

Bought OEM pump (which matched the original dimensionally), installed, no problems.

Contacted Saber, nothing but grief. The installation had NOTHING to do with the problem - the pump was simply not made to the same dimensions as the original OEM pump - but they refused to do anything.

There's my testimonial!

Sorry about your water pump. How about your experience with the brake pads from Saber?

I had problems with them personally. No it wasn't recent because I don't deal with someone after they've been a shithead the first time.

You did the right thing, from experience the oem pads are by far the best on my 1800, ebc are no comparison

This was recent... I should have researched, please everyone do some research on them. Negatives are everywhere, in every motorcycle forum, even have the sabrecyclesucks website. No phone to call, I sent 6 or 8 emails, received one back snotty and poor. 5 minutes away and can't pay with cash and pickup, must use their homebrew checkout system, would not even take paypal.
