While searching for a front brake caliper for my XL600R I recently bought an old XR caliper on the advice of a motorcycle wrecker. He wasn't 100% sure that it would fit the bike (being from a different line, capacity, and year), though he was reasonably confident it would. I ensured I got a receipt stating what I bought, the wreckers stamp and the price etc and was told I'd get an exchange or, failing that, a refund. Having discovered it in fact didn't fit I ended up getting the correct caliper from the previous owner (missing at the time I bought the bike). I asked for a refund the other day and was told I had to bring in the caliper I now have from the ex-owner as well as they frequently get ripped off by people replacing trashed stuff and then bringing it in and asking for a refund. This isn't the case here and I can understand how this would happen frequently and piss them off; the only reason I'm complaining about this is that it's a 45 minute drive both to and from the wreckers from my place and it's clear from the receipt that the caliper I was trying to return was the one I bought. After arguing for a short time (patiently and politely so that it's not an issue when I try and return it again) I left and decided to call the ACCC or Consumer Affairs Victoria (whichever would be able to inform me about this stuff). Before I get round to that I thought I'd ask if anyone here knows? As far as I know I think I was entitled to a refund - is this the case? Or is it fair for them to demand to see the other caliper as proof? If they can I'll happily take their caliper, and the correct one, back; it's just a pain having to make these trips and take the caliper off due to incorrect advice. Cheers.
