I’ve got to say something about the quality of service from Inox Fasteners…
I’m trying to fit a set of second-hand Ventura L-brackets to my Aprilia Falco. Ventura were good enough to supply a set of fitting instructions, but I’ve got a feeling that they’re for a later revision of the L-brackets than the ones that I’ve got.
The instructions say that the centre bracket, which fits under the pillion seat between the grab handles, has threaded bosses to accept the original grab handle bolts… the one I’ve got doesn’t. I’m guessing that there should be some longer bolts for the grab handles, to go through the un-threaded bosses, with a nut on the end.
So, late last night (actually, early this morning), I placed an order via Inox’s website for some suitable bolts, expecting to get a confirmation and payment request before lunchtime today. Sometime after lunch, I realised that I hadn’t heard anything, so I sent an email expressing my concern, with the hope that I could get the parts tomorrow.
I was slightly horrified at myself when I got a response apologising for the delay due to a family bereavement… and then a further message saying that the bolts had been put in the post without waiting for payment! The normal payment confirmation email didn’t turn up until this evening, and I’m fully confident that I’ll get the bolts tomorrow and the Ventura rack will be nice and secure, well before the weekend.
So, for all your stainless steel fasteners requisites: Inox Fasteners.
