    I've been able to start two conversations and have received a few PM's for Flea Market items.

    Not sure what I'm doing wrong today, but if I click on a user, there's no option to start a conversation. Same thing if I go into my inbox, I see no option to start a conversation.

    Am I in jail or something? Is there a weekly PM limit for non-supporters?

    Thanks in advance,
    OTW

    In order to thwart Flea Market PM scammers, you need to have xx number of posts and be on the site for xx number of days before you can start a conversation. If you see an item in the Flea Market of interest, reply in the thread and ask the seller to contact you.

    Just joined after recently picking up a KTM 690. I'm looking for pegs and seeing them offered up in a few areas but can't seem to PM anyone. Are there specific prereqs that I should be aware of? I see that some number of days and maybe some number of posts are necessary but nothing specific enough in my desperation here ha! Anyways - thanks to those that make this place a great resource and community for me to turn to with this new adventure.

    Same problem here. Frustrating, as there is a particular guy, Tuckers, that I really would like to contact.
