I have not had any experience personally but I remember that during very busy times it is difficult to have quick contact with Tim. I also heard that there have been times when his schedule has been late by one or two weeks. I have not heard any real negative reports on TPE.

What is your experience?

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"

but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

Good work, not fast & not very good with returning emails.

Yes, when I needed a stator last year it took 10 days to reach him. It would have taken another 3 weeks to get the stator rebuilt. I got a Ricks stator in 2 days. Has been working great.

I just ordered a stator from TPE this morning. He mentioned it should ship same day and that he had a couple in stock.

Well here's the situation, I emailed him back in July around the 16th about my stator that he rewound, it went great until a little down the road. Almost 1 year later my stator is toast. While this is rare from TPE from what I can tell I have that luck. He was very quick to respond and helpful at first. I shipped it back and he confirmed he received it on the 25th of July, stating he would get on it ASAP and keep me informed. After that I sent about 5 emails over the last three weeks trying to figure out the situation. All of which were ignored. So yesterday I sent one from my separate email account asking about stator turn around time, I got a reply in about 30 minutes. So giving the benefit of the doubt (maybe my emails were going to spam) I informed him of what was going on. He responded saying it should have been done and returned and he would look into it. Since then I haven't heard a word. Kind of seems I am out a core/stator and have missed the last month of summer riding due to a bad product.

I had the same issue, I contacted him two weeks before I needed the stator and ordered it. I went 13 days before he replied and 16 or so days after he told me he shipped it I final received the invoice. I sent him 5 emails and called 9 times over 3 days because I needed to know if I should overnight ship a stator from ricks (I did). I ended up receiving his stator the same day as I got the one from ricks and installed the TPE because of the quality reviews.

In short, if you've got the time to wait and play email tag the product should show up but don't order it in a hurry and expect to receive it quickly. On that note the stator I just installed from him works like a charm, I've only got 70 miles on it yet though.


If you need a stator ASAP I have the extra one from RICKS I'm selling (see thread).

(P.s I also spent over 2 months this season without riding, but do to a failed factory stock stator)

Good luck!
