    Thumbs down Skiworx - Scam Artist Don't buy from him

    I've never had such a bad experience in any of my motorsports dealings. We sent "Steve" a motor from an Ultra 150 we had purchased. He was going to rebuild or exchange for one of his motors. This was in May. I said I needed it by June. By the way, I paid some expensive shipping to send it from the west coast. After a few weeks of calling him because he never responded that he had even received the motor, he said yes he got it and would go through it. June came and went with no word from him. I called him several times a week. Then in the end of July he said we would have to send money to finish the build. Well we waited and boy he sure came calling saying he was going to sell our motor if he didn't get his money. We sent it and haven't heard a word. Oh wait, he did call now saying that he is missing parts. It's now October and no motor and he has our money.

    Does anybody out there know this guy? I'm going to be calling the authorities there Maryland to see what I need to do to get my motor and money back. I've never been one to bash anybody, but this is a total joke and I don't want people to go through this if they order something from him.

    There's been a lot of information posted over the years recommending dealing with other places for Kawasaki 2-Stroke stuff.

    I for one am VERY suprised that Vinny or Guido from NY haven't paid this guy a visit.

    Good Luck !!!

    I don't know what happened to Skiworx. He used to have a pretty good reputation, but everything's just gone to hell now. He came on here a year or two ago and said he was going to get things straightened out, but that hasn't happened.

    Sorry to hear that he got to you, too.

    I had a guy that ripped me off for $250 on craigslist. Sent him deposit money order and never shipped the part. I called his local police. They had me file a police report locally and forward it to them. Within a couple days they were at his door -gave him 7 days to come up with the money. 7 days later police called with my money. It was only $250 but it was the point behind it. I had everything well documented. Printed out texts - copy of money order- copy of usps tracking showing he received it and paid for it Ect Ect. Try calling his oval police office to start.

    The Skiworx Complaint thread was a sticky, then not, now I see it has been removed. For how long, who knows?

    Maybe a mod can explain where it went and maybe they can put up ANOTHER warning for people. We hear of Skiworx ripping someone off every few months.

    It would be good if it was a sticky in the Kawasaki Performance section.

    PS. The link below is dead... maybe the mods can revive it.
    PPS. No I still didn't get my money back.
