We understand that getting your product(s) in a timely manner is very important to you, which is why we make every effort to expedite your order at no additional charge. Estimated delivery times are typically 2-10 business days after your order has been processed depending on which warehouse we ship from as well as the state and location being delivered to. Because of the high volume of orders during the holidays, there may be some delays. As some unforeseen events may occur, we can make no guarantees on the exact delivery time and date. There may also be delays due to road and weather conditions depending on the area that the order will be delivered. Depending on the type of truck being used to delivery your vehicle, the freight company may request that you pick up your items from the local terminal, this typically only occurs if the access roads have weight restrictions or the delivery truck is unable to safely maneuver in or around the delivery location. Unfortunately, these occurrences are unforeseen and cannot be avoided, therefore, shipping cost cannot be discounted or refunded.
Due to excessive delivery rates to certain areas, an additional shipping fee may be added to your base shipping charge. Free shipping items may also be charged additional fees for delivery to certain areas. You have the option to pay the additional fee or cancel your order for a full refund, (if the item has not shipped).
Some Assembly required
Items will be shipped in a crate 80-95% assembled. You are responsible for performing the setup that a dealer would normally perform – such as putting on rear mirrors, trunk, charging the battery, hooking up the battery, checking tightness of all nuts and bolts, checking all fuel line / hose connections, changing oil, checking spark plug, etc. Occasionally some units may need other routine items checked/adjusted such as adjusting the carburetor idle and mixture screws, checking to ensure wires are well connected, adjusting chain slack, alignment, and clutch, if needed. For safety precautions, be sure to check and tighten all nuts and bolts prior to use and use Loctite if you need to. Be sure to check for appropriate engine fluid levels to ensure your vehicle is operating under the recommended conditions prior to use. We highly recommend having your unit assembled and tuned by a certified mechanic to make sure everything is done properly. If you choose to do the assembly yourself and have a question or cannot get your unit started, please call us 317/541-3700. We will not accept returns simply because you do not understand how to assemble the unit you ordered, we will assist as much as possible but for us to assist you, you must be willing to follow our directions or take the unit to a local mechanic.
