    I've never heard of them.

    But if you supply a link to a vendor, or other info about them, then you'll soon find out whether it's an engine that's familiar to this community or not.

    Part of the reason why you have never heard of Arrow is that they refuse to answer emails and refuse to sell you any of their items listed for sale on their website.

    Some of the racers have used their parts.

    Fabian - that's really strange that you've had such strange experiences with them. I have had just the opposite. I've mad a few purchase from them, and everything went smoothly. I had questions on a few things & they answered my emails as well. I must say their website isn't very impressive. Perhaps they cater mostly to locals & don't do as much online?

    I have no idea if they cater for locals but i was sending them 2 or 3 emails per week, and i did that for 6 months trying to get a reply.
    They either chose not to reply or they must have a lot of power outages in their area; requiring people to hand deliver emails to their letter box.

    Aw Fabian, that's a real tough thing to say about one of the coolest, most generous people I have met in this industry! Dave from Arrow Motorized Cycles has improved these 2 stroke engines so much, for our benefit I must say! I personally have benefited greatly from his generosity in regards to tuning tips. Hell, the guy built his own foundry to make really nice big reed boxes for people. I don't know why you can't seem to order from him. This is what he does for work! Of course he sells his products: How do you think he pays his bills? Well, by selling the best reed valve kits and engines in the business. His racing crew is one fast bunch! Very hard to beat. It's like that because he acquired excellent skills through a lifetime of hard work. I bring these statements to you with honesty, for sure!

    I have no idea how he pays his bills when he refuses to answer emails and refuses to sell me any of his parts, and it is simply a flat refusal because i put in a herculean effort to try and purchase Arrow items.

    On the flip side i purchased one of your (CR Machine Manufacturing) billet cylinder heads and was so impressed with the product that i purchased every single variant of the cylinder heads and pistons you manufacture, (back then) being 5 cylinder heads and two pistons.
    Imagine the order i would be putting in with Arrow if they sold me one of their products and it worked as advised.

    Unfortunately, in my situation that link is non accessible because it takes me to the other site, which i can't access because i am banned for life as well as my next three future reincarnations.

    You know, that "motorbicycling" must have horrible admins, I clicked on the link above and it gives me a vbulletin , "your IP has been blocked by the admins".As long as I don't click from here I can get there, so they're blocking people visiting from this site??I don't know about arrow, but sucks.

    I get the vBulletin message as well, regardless of what methods i use, not that it causes me any concern.
    The best people are on this site!

    No smarta.s.s..I've never been there, never signed up, as far as I know I'm the only MAB'er for hundreds of miles (dial up server hub is 30 miles away), I just wanted a look at the engine.Looks like others are right about someone playing god over there.
