I can understand that delays can happen for an infinite amount of reasons. And all the good things I hear about the GEBE system would probably make the wait well worth it.

But no responses to calls or emails after an extended period like that? Cant they just drop you a short email explaining the situation? Even staton will respond with an ignorant 4 word reply if you hound him enough. Thats just poor business practice.

Can't buy a gebe here......
Actually I can't even get them to answer an email and
it was sent to their support email over 4 days ago
I need a spoke install tool and some answers

How about this kit from down under?

They say they have an Australian patent.
Anyone know anything about this kit?

They were the first of the manufacturers I ever ran into on the web and I have bought two engines from them. a Zenoah & my current Tanaka.

I wouldnt have anything else to be honest

I just can't believe that they are not answering emails and calls. I called a week or so ago and they called back within an hour. I called again the same day for some clarification and they picked up (Julia put Dennis on and he talked me through the issue). I have also received answers to emails within a day. Why would they answer my calls but not yours, it makes no sense.:confused:

I waited over a month to get mine. The first time I called to see where my order was after waiting the couple of weeks I was told it would take. I could not get a hold of anyone on the phone. I sent a email. They responded with we can not find any order for your name. I kept calling and got someone to answer. He said that he thought he remembered taking my order and would check. He said that he would call me back the next day. Never did but emailed me a order number a couple days later. The email said that thet would send me a email saying when it shipped. I checked everyday for a email giving a shipping date. I never did get one, the kit just arrived one day. I am happy with it but if I had to do it again I would get a staton kit. I think that the belt tracking is a week point in the gebe system.

The drive ring and toothed belt and other parts look like a copy of the GEBE system. Wonder if a lawsuit will follow?
