Wichita >Motorcycles > Kamikaze Cycle Parts
Over the past 10 years I have had several motorcycles and I am into taking care of them. I have received great info and parts from the staff at Kamikaze. I always feel like have given me the best. I do believe in shopping with local retailers when it is possible.
Upgraded without being asked. Bummed out! Thought these guys (grumpy old man and other dude) were at least honest but went in last Saturday (July 23) to buy a tire and wanted the original size but grumps upgraded me to a size bigger (We got into a discussion about tire sizes and I wanted the original size and he said a size bigger wouldn't matter); I am not sure if he wanted to show me up or what but cost me an extra $15 or so. I put tires on myself but thought I'd give these guys a try and avoid some minor headache with doing it myself. After spending $70 more than doing it myself and getting 'taken' for a ride, I'll go back to doing it myself. Disappointed that it is so difficult to find an honest shop owner here in Wichita.
worst service ever!!!. I will never go to this shop again and will tell everyone I know not to aswell. The rude old man was very unhelpful and super pissed me off. It took almost two weeks to get the parts I ordered (200$+)and was not even called when they did come in.. F you and you have just lost several customers. ... t('')t.....
Bad service, and was "up graded" without asking to be. I called a bunch of different places around town for a 140/90-15 tire. When calling here they were the cheapest with a price of $119 mounted with a Dunlop tire if I brought in the wheel. So I brought in the wheel and the grumpy old guy at the counter asked if I was the one who called in earlier, I confirmed. Went to pick it up a day later and the total was $30 more expensive than quoted. He went on to tell me about this fictional conversation I had with him where I requested the "upgraded" tire for "$12" more. I told him this was not the case (I have my notes from all the different places I called). He still insisted this was the conversation that we had and continued to tell me how good of a deal he gave me on the tire. However I did not want that tire, and I am on a pretty tight budget. The conversation was getting no where, so I just accepted it and left. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Sure it seems cheaper at first, but it didn't end up being cheaper, and even if it was, it wasn't worth the hassle and unfriendliness of the old grumpy guy.
Great shop, they know what they are doing. Liked the the stores ambiance just like the old days when I was a kid and you had personal service. Fair prices frendly, I prefer the little guys, over the blowhards like Ross @ midAmerica
Anybody who wants to put a shop down for not knowing enough about old stuff should realize there is no such thing as a Virago 1193. F'ing retard...
They treated me right.I'd send anyone to them.
Honda Carb rebuild. Had the 4 carbs rebuilt on my restored 1975 Honda 4 and the work was very good, the Honda rides just like back in the day.
Poor Service with Kamikaze Cycle.
Kamikaze Cycle Parts 1001 W Douglas Ave Lack the detail knowledge and skill to properly rebuild my 1193 Virago Carbs. They do not have the required sonic equipment or access to parts needed to rebuild many of the older hitachi and Mikuni carbs like on many jap bikes. If you want a good job done with like new quality, check out the guy that finally fix them at classiccarbs on the web. I just mailed in the carbs and they come back setup like new. Kamikaze charged more and did way way less. save your time and money let classic do them first,
kamikaze, you guys need to invest in the needed expert repairman in your service bay and get some equipment for rebuilding carbs.
