Unfortunately that's not a good deal at all. I'm in the market for a side rack and have been scowering ebay as well as other sites. Ridersdiscount which is the seller for this ebay item, is showing a false or incorrect photo for what the item is. If you look at the discription, the item number is "PLX447KIT". This item is the mounting kit needed to use the PLX447 side racks if you don't use a top box mount. So they are deliberately trying to mislead potential buyers with that picture. Furthermore, that items sells for $29.00 all over the internet. After almost getting tricked with that listing a couple of times myself, I've decided I won't be purchasing anything from Ridersdiscount at all.
You are correct, this is not a good deal. This is an error in the listing which will be corrected asap. We recently took on GIVI products so we apologize for any errors out of the gate.
Please note, we are not deliberately trying to to mislead customers. If we were, we wouldn't have a 99.7% feedback rating with over 200k ratings. Mistakes happen and we correct them or offer free returns or exchanges on any item that is an error on our part.
I've had excellent dealings with Riders Discount over the years.
Twisted throttle has the same kit for $26.10, plus they clearly state it's just the hardware and does not include the racks. The higher than normal price coupled with the poor description make me think someone is trying to pull a fast one. Did someone maybe hijack Riders Discount's account?
Twisted Throttle also charges shipping on top of the $26.10. I went through their checkout and came to a total of $32.70 shipped via USPS (the cheapest option). We will
beat that for forum customers.
Nobody hacked our accounts, we have over 140,000 currently active listings. Every once in a while a few slip through that aren't corrected. These are immediately fixed.
