    You should have accepted it. If they come back for payment, give them the package (with a rock in it) back and then install mufflers and enjoy.:evil

    FYI. I too have a set of Wings on order with Gorazd. I dropped him a note regarding the UPS issue as a heads up for future shipments. He replied today and is aware of the issue. I have faith that he will make this right and soon. He has been nothing short of amazing when it comes to communication and concern for providing a quality product and experience. All while being half a world away!

    I bought a set of Wings for my 990 direct and found their service and product to be first rate.



    Good luck with getting it sorted....once you get them fitted the sound of that V twin will make all the hassle seem worth it.

    Returned home Sunday night and checked my email and had a message from Gorazd saying it was a mistake on his end with UPS and that when he returns on Monday that he will handle the matter with them:clap I think alot of companies should take a look at Wings and how they deal with customer service. He takes the time on vacation to check his emails and responds to his customers to handle the problems. My hats off to you Goradz for running a top notch company you will get by business again and referrals from anyone looking, cant wait to get them installed to listen to the music in my ears. Thanks to everybody for listening and replies.

    My experience with Gorazd was top notch, would not hesitate to make future orders of the Wings product. Total confidence with him correcting this shipping issue.

    The mufflers are beautiful, a work of art and sound wonderful.

    Also, you will have fun removing the mufflers from the package and discovering all of the cool swag.

    Finally after 2 weeks of going back and forth with Gorazd and the dumb a**'s at UPS I was able to pick up my package from the depot. Slovenian UPS was sending requests for the shipping to be charged to them and US UPS wouldn't return any replies back. Then yesterday got a reply from ups that they put a tracker on the package and then they were going to ship it out this morning and then they were going to ship it back to Slovenia so i finally got a hold of someone at the local depot and she was able to hold it and told me I could pick it up today:clap Now I cant wait for the weekend to get them installed and take a run up the mountains and get the hell out of the desert. (108* and humid) Oh and did I mention the wife is leaving for 4 days with my daughter in law and grandson to go to Disneyland.:clap:wings:happay:ricky

    I just finished installing my new Wings exhaust and wow love the sound, the look and can't believe the difference in weight. Was reading the maint. on Wings website and they recomend liquid parafin for protection, does anybody do this and if you do where can I find it.

    How would one get in touch with Gorazd? It seems the Wings website is not working correctly.

    Unfortunately my dealings with the Australian distributor were not positive. Used another brand.

    Is there someone reason why no is giving a real answer to how much their paying? I keep hearing its cheaper than a akra for my 690 enduro but don't know how much cheaper once shipped to Cali or Washington state if he can't ship to Cali. Or should I just buy a fmf

    Here's what I paid last year for a set (2) mufflers for smt 990 SMT

    The total amount for a pair of NOS with carbon end cap would be: 711,- USD + 95,- shipping= 806,- + 4% paypal fee= 838,- USD


    The 2 mufflers Akrapovic set from Revzilla is $1563
    Not sure how that scales to a 690, but you can just ask. For US deliveries you deal with Gorazd directly.

    Mine showed within a week with no issue.

    I received my Wings can yesterday, exactly one week after first contacting Gorazd. Their service and quality are exceptional.
