    Icon2 Is it safe to buy body parts for CBZ 1999 model from safexbikes?

    Hi, I am looking for body parts for my dad's Hero Honda CBZ 1999 model especially front mudguard and side fairings (plastic parts)? The bikes condition is good, but here are all the issues/problems with it,

    1. Front mudguard broken in half.
    2. Side fairing? Not sure what to call them but, the plastic part on the front right side near the air intake is loose - broken screw holder, so is the one on the left one under the tank. Will fevicol or similar do the trick?
    3. Apparently, the tank has a tiny hole and it was fixed by a local mechanic with some kinda putty/adhesive - should I replace the tank?
    4. Both the key slots - ignition and tank are pretty much worn down and will need a replacement.

    Everything else is fine, the bike runs smooth and I am able to get it serviced every year at the Hero Service center but, they are not selling any 'Hero Honda' parts anymore.

    I was searching online and found safexbikes has a few spare parts - https://www.safexbikes.com/productdetail/motorcycle-parts/motorcycle-body-kit/hero-honda-cbz/ZBKHH11


    Is the site trustworthy? Are there any alternatives? Currently the bike is in Kakinada but, I can travel to Hyderabad, are there any trustworthy places I should look for?

    thank you.


    ps. I will post pics if needed.

    Me and one of my friend ordered some parts from the site. A bit slow in delivery but reasonably priced. I could not find some parts here in Bangalore so ordered them from the site. Fits perfectly.

    That site is okay, doesn't cheat as per my experience. I bought 5-6 parts for my Karizma ZMR. I got what I saw on the website. The brand of the parts is shown clearly in the product details page.

    I ordered (paid in advance) a Bosch twin electrode spark plug also, but they sent me a regular, simple bosch spark plug suitable for karizma zmr. They said that the twin electrode one is out of stock everywhere, I verified it with other sites and xbhp also. Also, there was hardly any difference in the price of that twin electrode one and the one I got, hence there was no point in arguing or shouting fraud fraud. I have kept that spark plug for future replacement.

    I mean to say that, they MAY NOT have some parts in stock (even though the site shows it as IN STOCK), and they MAY send you a similar part in such case. Try to talk to them in advance about your required parts. The customer care number is mostly active, a punjabi guy answers the phone and is quite professional in handling requests, he didn't ever talk to me rudely or ignored me.

    In that same prepaid order, I had ordered a ignition coil for my ZMR. I didn't see the webpage properly. The product page clearly showed SWISS brand, but I didn't notice it, I assumed that they are providing OEM genuine ignition coil. When I received the coil, I took it to me trusted mechanic who told me not to get it installed as swiss is a cheap, useless brand. I told the same to safex customer care and requested them for a return and agreed to pay the shipping cost myself. But they POLITELY declined my request via mail, saying that I should have seen while ordering and they have delivered the exact product what they showed on site.

    I don't hold them guilty for not accepting the return, it was my own carelessness. But I told you this to illustrate that safex guys are not like Amazon, myntra etc, they won't accept a return without solid reasons.

    NOTE: Make a VIDEO OF UNBOXING while opening their parcel, in case you don't get what you ordered. I do it frequently with ebay orders, and I have successfully forced the sellers to refund me quickly because I had a video proof in case the product was defective/not as ordered.
