I'm guessing they have an expired certificate and/or compromised web site.
I have a set of their deflectors for the new Rushmore style bikes that I won this year the SWIX and while I like them they do direct the rain onto my legs when it raining. I'm not sure that there is any deflector that won't push some of the rain towards your legs. Other than that I like them.Erilflinn, did you try a set of the deflectors? They seem to get fairly good reviews. The stock deflectors funnel rain right onto my leg. Didn't get any of that with my old sancho wings on my 09
I have never purchased anything from them, but. Reading your post reminded me of how Boardtracker H-D was before things started coming out about them.It's been my long term experience that Kuryakyn customer satisfaction has been on a steady decline for a few years now. It appears that the quality of their products has gone downhill, and that their inventory is often inadequate with long "out of stock" periods. The example of the air deflectors above is a good example. Out of stock for at least 2- 3 months - that's just poor management. Now their website is down for at least 5 days - something's terribly wrong there. This place has all the signs of a company who's about to go bust and shut the doors. Not saying that's what is happening, just saying that the signs are very familiar to me as someone who sold auto parts to distributors nationwide for 30+ years. Inventory reductions with lots of "stock outs" and long lead times on products coming back into inventory is the first sign that something major is wrong - usually it's severe financial issues. There's a saying in the industry "they're selling a lot of pegboard" - that means that as you look around the store (retail) or warehouse (wholesale) and you see a lot of empty pegboard hooks (or shelving), it's usually a sign of financial stress within the company. When they can't afford new inventory to replace what they stocked and sold, that's a very bad sign.
I've only purchased 3 cosmetic dress up items from them and all three items were chrome items (2 turned out to be chrome over plastic) and all 3 were taken off the bike and thrown away after about a year as the chrome was flaking off for no reason other than poor craftsmanship/poor QC. That kind of quality will put you out of business sooner or later. I would never buy anything from them again unless it was something I could hold in my hand and look over carefully before purchasing - like maybe at a large bike event where they have a booth.
