Q: Why don't you have a lighting stator for the Yamaha YZ250F/YZ450F?

Good question! We get asked this alot. This is one of the most commonly requested parts for us. We don't have a stator for this bike, although we're in development with one. We may or may not ever bring it to market. This bike is extremely difficult to build a reliable lighting stator for. The stock stator is a very small, 4-pole stator. On the OEM stator, all 4 poles are used to power the ignition system. In order to generate enough output for a lighting system, at least 2 poles are necessary to be free for lighting output. Reducing a 4-pole ignition output to 2-poles, puts a very high load on the 2-poles used for ignition. Heat build up in the new ignition poles will cause unreliability. The problem that usually occurs is failure of the ignition poles on the prototype parts. Some of this can be avoided by using extremely high quality magnet wire on the ignition coils, and a good quality overmold on the metal core to prevent wire tension and excessive wear. As we progress on this part, we may offer one in the future if we are happy with the reliability testing results.

Q: How do I know what part I need?

Head over to our Tech Support section, and read up on the technical details of the parts we manufacture. Troubleshooting tips are available to help you determine what part needs to be replaced. You can always contact us with any questions.

Q: Do you have the right part for my specific Make/Model/Year?

We have parts for many Make/Model/Year motorcycle & powersports applications. The easiest way to see if we have your part is to use our Application search on the front page. Enter your specific Make/Model/Year and all applicable parts will be displayed.

Under normal circumstances, orders are processed the same or following day, Monday through Friday during typical business hours. All orders placed Saturday or Sunday will be processed on Monday, with the exception of holidays.

Q: When will my order ship?

Q: What shipping options are available?

All shipments are sent by USPS Priority Mail, or UPS Ground unless otherwise requested. All expedited shipping methods are through UPS. We prefer to ship physical addresses.

If we ship to your PO Box and the package is denied, you must pay return & re-shipping costs.

Q: Do you ship outside of the USA?

Yes! We ship everywhere. Most international shipments are through USPS Priority Mail. Our website is primarily intended to calculate accurate shipping costs for the US & Canada. If your international shipping rate calculated on our shopping cart does not seem accurate, please contact us to get a personal quote on shipping your order.

Q: How will you ship my order?

We ship primarily through UPS and USPS (United States Postal Service). We can ship FedEx if requested. We can also ship UPS on your account if you prefer. Contact us before ordering to do so.

Q: Do you ship to Alaska and Hawaii?

We do ship to Alaska & Hawaii. However, shipments to Alaska & Hawaii are excluded from our Free Shipping offer. The UPS rate quoted during checkout is only an estimate and is subject to additional shipping charges that will be charged to your credit card.

If you ever have any questions about our shipping rates quoted online, please give us a call for a personal shipping quote at 619-928-9015.

Q: When will I receive my order?

All orders for our manufactured parts (stators & regulators) will ship directly from our warehouse & retail location in San Diego, CA. We do drop-ship from other suppliers for some parts. We do our best to only work with suppliers that can fulfill our orders efficiently, so most orders will leave within 1-3 business days after processing. Standard ground shipments will take 1-5 business days to arrive, depending on which continental state you ship to (a business day is a non-holiday weekday, weekends are not counted). Expedited shipments will arrive in the amount of business days you select, plus the processing time, prior to shipping (normally a maximum of 1 additional day). Please allow extra time when shipping to remote rural areas and during peak holidays. When your order ships, we will send you a Shipping Confirmation email with a tracking number and direct link you can use to track your order. If you placed your order via the telephone and did not provide us with an e-mail address, please contact customer service if you do not received your order within 10 business days.

Q: Do you offer expedited shipping?

Yes. You can choose UPS 3-Day, 2-Day or Next Day service for an additional charge. The expedited shipping duration does not include the time to process your order (usually 1 day maximum). Please refer to the Shipping Estimate feature in your cart screen, after adding your items, to estimate the amount of your shipping cost. If actual shipping rates are higher than the what the cart quoted, we will contact you as soon as possible to discuss any additional charges.

Q: Can I have my order sent to more than one address?

Not if you order online. Each online order can be sent to only one address. If you are purchasing several items to be shipped to different addresses, you'll need to place a separate order for each different shipping address online. We can accommodate these types of requests over the phone, however. Please give us a call at 619-928-9015 to discuss your needs.

Q: What could cause a shipping delay?

Wrong address or zip code used for the shipping address.

When the shipping company can't deliver your package and they send the packages back to us, we will contact you via email or phone for correct address information.
Unforeseen circumstances at our business.

Q: Delays by shipping companies

Your shipment could be temporarily lost or misplaced by the shipping company. If the delay is deemed unreasonable, we will ship you a replacement order. If the original package does show, it is your responsibility to help get that package back to us. If the package is not returned in a reasonable amount of time, you will be charged for it, plus the shipping cost.

Q: Delays during holiday seasons between Thanksgiving and Christmas

Shipping companies often do not guarantee any shipment a couple of weeks before Christmas. Please allow extra time for deliveries during this time. You can also contact us for expedited shipping options.

Q: Item is on backorder

We will contact customers via your email in case the product you ordered is on backorder and will be delayed. If you have other items on your order that are not on backorder we may ship items separately, backordering the unavailable items.

Q: Undeliverable packages (orders returned to us)

Packages that are returned to us by the U.S. Postal Service or UPS and marked as "Unclaimed", "Return to Sender", "Attempted Unknown", "Refused", or "Invalid Street Address", will be credited back to the customer's credit card on file, less the shipping and handling fees and a 25% restocking fee.

Q: Billing address information is inconsistent with what is on the credit card record

To protect our customers against credit card fraud, we will call, email or use other ways to verify that the credit card holder authorized the purchase. The billing address MUST MATCH the records at the card issuing bank or we will not accept the order.

Q: Restocking Fee

Returns are subject to a 15% Restocking Fee.

Q: Return Shipping Costs

Return shipping is the customer's responsibility.
