Thanks for the support everyone.
I'm Kyle I run FuturisMoto.
In the latest batch of circuit boards, there was an issue with the quality. Some were overheating and failing during my assembly tests, along with a couple shortly after customers receiving them. This is not acceptable, I can't let potentially faulty tail tidy's leave my shop. I had to work with the circuit board manufacturer and have new ones made delaying shipment.
I'm very sorry for the delay I just don't want parts failing on customers prematurely. Quality has to come first and then speed of manufacture second

The good news is I'll be receiving the new turn signal circuit boards in about 8 hours. As long as they pass my quality test. Tail tidy's will be shipping again Friday. I have a backlog of 52 tail tidy's so it will take about a week to get them all assembled and shipped out.

This is the reality of Boutique motorcycle parts manufacturing. I'm not Rizoma or Gilles tooling. FuturisMoto is just me, one guy, handling everything. I work 100-120 hours most weeks and I slow down to 40-60hours one week a month. There will be delays if supplier issues come up. I'm doing my best while working to maintain quality. It's difficult to scale production and assembly while keeping up with order volume. Especially with this volume of consumer orders, and now bulk dealers coming on board

I paused taking orders to catch up on shipment and to create some inventory. as long as there isn't another jump in order volume I might be able to create some inventory on the shelf allowing for shipments to go out when orders are placed.

At this moment I think I'll be able to restart taking orders around Mid January.
Thanks from ddd269 and YouUh

My order no is 1222 so we are close in number. I assume and hope it's a delay from their part and not a runaway scam. Even so, it would have been great if they emailed the recipients of the delayed orders with an explanation
I replied to both of your messages within 18ish hours explaining the delay. Please be patient I'm working hard to fill orders. I'm not a scammer in any way. I'm sure you can order and overnight a NRC or EVOtech tail tidy if you don't want to wait. Just send me a message and I'll issue a refund.
Thanks from Tricky1

Praise to you Kyle!

Just joined really to write in support of your work which I have some how only just come across after stalking this forum for months. You seem to offer the only alternative to NRC's ghastly finish (ugh, plastic look) which I would have succumbed to had I not found this thread.

I look forward to you getting both products up and running again in Jan and have subscribed my email address to get them orders in! Hopefully there are no issues with shipping internationally?

Best

Dan

I just wanted to give Futurismoto a plug.
I really didn’t want to go down the bar end mirror route but the original mirrors are so bad I finally did.
The key was the front blinkers, I went with Futurismoto and they turned up a week ago. They are a perfect fit and look like a real quality item, and the light is very bright. The instructions were great and the whole thing was just plug and play, so thanks and well done.
I went with the aluminium finish as it is suits the Speciale better, and topped them off with the Rizoma spy arm bar end on my right side as we ride on the left and a small round Rizoma on the left just to see cars for any dual lane overtaking. All in aluminium silver finish, they are jewel like, and perfect clarity.
All up fantastic and no more wobbly big dumb mirrors up front.
If you’re sitting on the fence I say go for it.
Thanks from Ther1kid

I have sent your company several emails and you have never replied. I have email your over 2 months ago on when these would be avaiable. Nice looking product however, please respond to emails.

I will try more however I'm only one person. I have to triage emails. Issues, customers, and vendors have to take priority. The website and social media posts state when the product is available or when it will likely be available. The product pages had an approximation in red at the top of the description.

Thanks gents that means a lot that you're happy with them. Seeing happy people with my parts on their bikes is the best.
Enjoy and if you have any issues please let me know and I'll take care of them

I appreciate you are a one man operation, and I just tailored my expectations accordingly. I saw the messages on your web, registered my interest and then waited until you were accepting orders again.
They really are a great product, so thanks, and best of luck for you and your business, I’m glad you’re doing it.

Cheers

Got mine this week and completed install.

By far the best looking tail tidy I’ve seen. Not just for the V4 but any bike.

Phenomenal product.
