FMF bargain- not.

If, like me, you saw several internet sites offering FMF Q4s for prices between $284, and $360, don't get excited.

At first I thought it was an old model being sold out, or maybe just one muffler. I almost ordered from Oemcycle at $300.53 and free shipping. Fortunately, I called first to confirm it was a pair, only to find out it was a part number error, (045422) not a pair, and not even for the 950.

It is being offered on Ebay, and several other sites, as fitting the 950/990, but it does not fit those bikes. It is for a 350.

I guess this won't be a violation, since it is posted as a warning and not a link to buy? http://www.ebay.com/itm/FMF-Racing-S...7202f6&vxp=mtr



Edit: I just checked the Oemcycle.com site, and I see that since I talked to them, they have corrected their page to read that this number does not fit the 950/990.
