Cheap Ebay Gasket Set

Postby Aussie81Interstate » Fri Jan 09, 2015 2:56 am



Found this on ebay, I bought a set from this seller two weeks ago. Complete set, and possibly worth the bit of shipping to get it to the USA.

I only paid the $30 for it though plus the postage.

Vesrah and Athena are supposed to be the choice among non OEM gaskets.
I used the Athena top end kit for my 1980 and haven't had any problems.
Is that the top end kit you purchased? I couldn't tell if it was by the description.
The price, for a top end kit, is great :!: :!: :!: . Regards, Johnny

No,

it is not a top end kit - it is the complete gasket kit 163 pieces

It has all the gaskets and all the O rings for a complete rebuild


definitely worth the value

:D

Thanks for the post. I have the same gasket kit (Vesrah VG-195) on my watch list for US $144. I have sent a request for shipping price. In the meantime, let us know how the set works out for you. Have a Bundy for me.

I already have purchased this gasket set complete last week.

So when I saw another one from the same seller - thought it was worth mentioning on the site - as from my research they are normally more expensive and usually well over the $100 mark.

I have already used a few "O" rings from the set, but really only wanted it because it was so cheap - couldn't pass it up sort of thing. Plus my wife expects to see some unknown parcel turn up every few weeks or days - she has stopped asking what they are all for :D
Don't drink Bundy - no longer a quality drink - you need to try "Inner Circle" - that will stop you in your tracks... and kill any germs inside you at the same time :D

Vesrah has these two kits:

VG-195 - Complete Set - 39 items - 63 pieces
VG-595 - Top Set - 15 items - 37 pieces

And the Gl1000 set is cheaper as the one below that i purchased... Cant go wrong for the price. Even if you dont use the head gaskets (cos the kit didnt cost $150) and use only the soft/paper... Still in front and cant have enough spare gaskets, i reckon :D :D :D

I am still waiting for a reply on my shipping question. I will buy the set as soon as I know what the shipping costs are. I won't be needing the gaskets for a while. Next summer when my son gets home we will be rebuilding a 1980 GL1100I that I have for him. I will post the shipping costs when I find out. BTW, I will try that Inner Circle next time I'm in Sydney.

IF the shipping costs are a bit high I could see how much it would cost me to send it to you?

I know it was $22 AU for the seller to post it to me - it arrived in 2 days - was inside an express postage satchel - the whole gasket set is inside a light cardboard package, and is sealed (or mine was).

I certainly appreciate the offer. I'm hoping to hear back soon. Even if the shipping is a little high, it's still a great deal. I may have to get two. G'day.

Thanks for the post. I got the following response for shipping to Arizona:

Dear stephenricci,

Hi Steve

sea $40.00

Air $55.00

regestered post $63.00

thanks Amanda

I responded back by asking if it was the same shipping price if I order two sets. I will let you know what the answer is but even though the shipping is on the high side, it's still a pretty good deal considering the prices I have been able to find elsewhere.

The reason I posted was because it looks like the same bidder got both sets shown on ebay.

Good luck if it was someone from the forum. good purchase.

I didn't get them. Due to fact. I was first bidder on the gl1100 set and not even 5 minutes after bidding somebody out bid me. So I let them go. Been on ebay to long and seen to many deals that the sellers play. I don't fall for them.

Sorry guys but I got both sets for $53.80(US) plus $40(US) shipping for both. I am sure Amanda will post another set for auction soon so keep looking. It's a great deal.

OK,

Glad someone from the forum got them - I think they were a good price. Even if you live over the pond.

Hopefully a few more might ome up - you never know.

Aussie81Interstate, I agree and thanks again for your original post. Amanda is now checking to see if she has a set for my 88 Virago. Hope she does, I'll buy again for these prices.

good one Steve,

I might have to email her and ask for a spotters fee LOL

even though she is on the opposite side of Australia - as long as the prices are good - that's the main thing.

And maybe i could go and pick them up... There only 50 kilometers up the road... Just a thought.. I dont mind paying up front as long as there "on sold".. Im sure a package of 4-5 sets is cheaper to post to other side of world that 4-5 seperately!!!.. Or will it get tooo messy???

Just an update on my purchase. What I ended up paying for two sets was $58.80 and $24.25 for shipping by sea. Amanda said she has been getting inquires about her Goldwing stuff and said she will have more posts. I let her know more people were interested on this forum. She is great to work with and even created an invoice for me so I could make payment for both sets and shipping with one payment. You can't ask for more than that. Again, thanks Aussie81Interstate for the original post and happy shopping everyone.
