On the page you supplied a link to, it clearly states

Your eBay profile may be set to Australia or the States Finmows?

Postage says free to UK...


Postage to Oz is £260.30 :)

The link I supplied says fast & free postage.
I wouldn't have supplied the link if postage was £199 as they wouldn't have been cheap.
I'd already mentioned them to Osteveo when I found them & said I was thinking about getting a pair. This was couple of days before I put the link on for general viewing.
I already had a pair sat in my garage at a total cost £119 before posting the link to give others the heads up who may not have seen it.
Just trying to do other Buell enthusiasts a favour here.

Well im just saying that the link YOU supplied comes up with £199.70 postage...when I click on it from my phone...I know my eBay settings are for the UK because I use the eBay app when I want something from eBay
This is very strange!
I will visit the library and get on one of their computers and see what happens there
I'm just doing my best for other folk too FFS...which includes mentioning something that's strange for something that seems too good to be true!

Certainly odd - I put my address in and it was free. If someone has ordered and received them postage free that's a great result :yup:

Well spotted :D

OK here we go again :roll:
I use Opera mini as my phone browser (tis best for data usage) when I click on link...postage £199
When I use the browser built into my phone, link says Postage free
When I use the eBay app on my phone...postage free
Opera must be bouncing through a load of VPN's
It just looked odd to me and I thought I'd say something so people don't get their fingers burned
Anyone heard anything about Stoober recently?

Yeah no problem.
The tyres were very cheap, hence my alert to others who may be interested.
Next time I'll post any evidence pictures with whatever I recommend.
Shouldn't matter what browser anyone's using then.

All the Best Paul.

With the decline in motorcyclist and big business having to buy stock in bulk for discount, then yes could be old stock being sold on the cheap, only way is to check date on the tyre

Date code on the tyres is 2012 so old stock I guess.
Won't make any difference to me to be honest, I've been riding on a Maxxis on the rear, so these will be a massive upgrade. Christ a block pattern would be an upgrade on that flippin' Maxxis.
