Retro Indicators Avoid Saisei/Cybike
on: September 29, 2020, 06:03:45 PM
It is with regret I feel the need to inform all Z900rs owners of the unnecessary crusade Iíve been in for many months with Saisei also known as Cybike relating to the poor quality indicators fitted by local dealership who sourced indicators, to my new Z900RS. I sent many photos of the corrosion to Saisei, whoís representative failed to explain why only two indicators corroded and pitted whilst all other chrome parts are unmarked, I was accused of using an abrasive and a derisory offer of 10% made for replacing one poor quality item for another. Also dealership made contact with this company who failed to explain why the items are not fit for purpose and I am told they would not use this supplier again.

Talk about authenticity! They went above and beyond to ensure that they look old. They even pre-pitted them for you.

I was thinking the same thing they really look RETRO as if you took them off a 1972 vintage bike that sat out in the weather for years......

Can't buy PATINA like that...well OK guess you can  :087:

Seriously however sorry for your experience and hope they make it right...vintage parts are 1 thing but to look like they were USED at those prices is quite another!!!

Good Luck with getting this resolved to your satisfaction!!

That looks like a bit of a shitty plating job they did on those housings.

Wonder what those housings are made of under that chrome?

It's definitely pitting, frequently that's due to either imperfections in the base material, poor prep, or contamination prior to chroming. Either that or the chrome layer is so thin that it's quickly oxidised through micro imperfections.

Bottom line it's bad quality.  :021:

Thanks for all your interesting replies, very good info, this is the reaction after 10 months kept clean and dry in a garage, I wonder how they may have reacted if I had rode bike outside on British roads in British weather? They may only be manufactured for showrooms and indoor classic shows only although I canít remember being told that prior to purchase when I had several conversations with the company.  Iím a little concerned the corrosion may jump across contaminate other parts so will speak to my local plating company.
