Problems Getting Carbon Fiber Exhausts
I ordered a set of Sil Motor Oval carbon fiber exhausts for my 1999 ST2 from CarpiMoto back in July. Carlo Carpi advised me that the Sil Motor production facility closes for the month of August, so I wired 593 Euros to CarpiMoto in early September. I have not received the exhausts yet.
I've corresponded weekly with Carlo via email. He is always very prompt in replying to my inquiries about the mufflers, but the long and short of it is that Sil Motor has not produced the mufflers yet, and Carlo cannot tell me when they will be shipped.
"Moto" has passed along the word that Sil Motor company is in receivership. I asked Carlo about this, but he did not respond, nor did he comment on my request for a refund if the mufflers aren't shipped in two weeks.
Has anyone out there ordered and received Sil Motor CF mufflers in the past two months? Is anyone aware of financial problems for Sil? I'm worried that I am going to lose $800 US and wind up with no exhausts. Any other information you may have is appreciated.
