WARNING: Avoid JT Outfitters/Samuraiparts
« on: May 07, 2014, 09:40:21 PM »
A company called Samuraiparts.com carries some parts for the Rocky. I would recommend finding those parts elsewhere.


I called about the inner wheel bearing to make sure it was the correct 32008JR-3, was told it was the correct bearing. It was not, I received an overpriced 32008. Returned same day with signature confirmation, was signed for by J Turpin on Friday at 12:14pm. On Wednesday I received a partial refund after two emails, the first a friendly inquiry along with link to correct bearing, the second a next step is paypal dispute.

So I\'m out what a set of 32008 bearings would cost from amazon. Which isn\'t right, I called first to make double sure about this and a full refund should have been issued.  


J Turbin also does business under JT Outfitters, so beware, and find parts elsewhere. And get a signature confirmation in this type situation, probably is the only thing that ensured at least a partial refund.

Now this is partially my fault, should have researched this con artist better.

I bought two 32008 JR-3 from:

http://www.bearingandengineering.co.nz/shop/BEARINGS/Bearings/Taper/Metric+Taper+Roller+Bearing/TAPER+BEARING+32008JR-3.html

The bearings were the Koyo OEM replacements.  The guys were friendly and the shipping was quick!

Keep those Rocky's rolling!

Yes, that is the only source for these in the world I believe.
