I need an oil pressure switch for my V50 and ordered from their online parts list at about 4 pm on Monday. Two(!) switches arrived in the post yesterday morning.

Unfortunately - they were the wrong ones. I spent ages on the phone to two different people at Fowlers who couldn't have been more helpful, even holding on while I dismantled more of the bike. We eventually realised my bike was non-standard (probably like every other Guzzi on the planet).

The chap I was talking to actually did a search on the part number I found (which apparently is really for the big-block bikes) and discovered that one of their competitors, Gutsibits, had the part so referred me on to them.

Service above and beyond, even if they did send 2 items. They have made no profit out of this other than goodwill.

Hopefully the switch from Gutsibits will arrive as quickly.

I like Fowlers for the ability to search parts by fiche / diagrams barring the non-std pitfalls you experienced. Searching other well known sites seems to be a black art I'm yet to master :)
 
Needed a rubber exhaust hanger after a pre MoT check this week and a relief to find it 'in stock' at Fowlers.  
Cheers, Tony

Thumbs up for Fowlers. I needed a part for a mate's Honda VFR and they were literally the only ones in the UK who could supply it and at a reasonable price. I used their parts diagrams to track down the part on another Honda bike and cross ref'd the part number. Ordered on line and arrived in two days. Brilliant!
