Briley CF tube too short


Recommended Posts

Hmm.... Looks odd. Could they have sent you a tube for a different model or something? I think it's supposed to be full-length and shouldn't need an extension. (I sure hope so because I just ordered one....lol)

Why isn't the end threaded?  Should have same threads on both ends.

It is.

Either a defect or they sent you the wrong one. Either way, contact them.

 

Also, you were able to fit the spring restrictor in the tube? One I had was too wide to use that so spring was held down by the cap.

Is the spring restrictor a part that Briley provides? Or the Benelli OEM one didn't fit in the Briley tube?

The little black piece that keeps the spring in? 
 

yes it fit. You need a snap ring pliers to squish it.

no communication and slow to ship. Hopefully your experience is better.

Allthingschokes is saying that it was a Briley factory defect and Briley will fix it.  So, sounds like he is aware of it and there is a resolution.  

I'm a bit confused. So you bought your CF tube from him?

So did you buy your CF tube from this guy on eBay too? I'm a bit confused. 

 

Is allthingschokes Briley's eBay storefront page or something?

Yes, bought it from the seller on eBay. I do not believe they are affiliated with Briley. Here is what they told me. 
 

“Hi, the factory confirmed (AFTER ALL THE DELAY) that there was a length issue. Can we get another out with a call tag, or do you want a refund?”

Allthingschokes on ebay seems to be a high volume Briley product retailer who offers the lowest prices.  They have a website as well.  He seems to be offering a resolution and is communicating.  So, not sure what else a retailer can do more.

Yes he's offering some sort of resolution but, seems to me he should be dealing with his vendor (Briley), rather than passing it along so you can deal with it.

 My 2cents............Caveat Emptor.............

Yeah, maybe they improved it, but the one I had (and I know StrangerDanger had the same problem) was too wide for the OEM spring restrictor. If Briley didn't make an update and you bought from an ebay retailer.... might question their authenticity. I'd hope not, but coming from aftermarket automotive world... CF parts are the easiest and most prolific counterfeits out there. Especially with the length problem... that seems fairly obvious and knowing Briley, I can't see how that would have escaped their QC.
