Oakley Customer Service

For Oakley customer service! I have a pair of Minutes that are more than a few years old. A couple of weeks ago, the ear piece snapped in half. I called Oakley to see if I could purchase a replacement ear piece, but they don't get replaced on that model. The entire frame would have to be replaced. They told me to ship them with a check for $29 for processing (because they're out of warranty). If they determined it was a defect, they'd replace the frame. From NJ to CA and back was only 2 weeks. I got them back yesterday...new frame for $29. Can't beat that. I was very pleased! Another reason I like Oakleys so much!

Re: Oakley Customer Service

Nice to hear, I'm looking to pick up a pair of bottlecaps. Where did you buy yours? Looks like Ebay has the best prices.

Look, lean, believe!!

Re: Oakley Customer Service

I get my Oakleys from my local Honda dealer...we get a discount on all purchases since a new bike was purchased from them.

Re: Oakley Customer Service

Yep, I sent my Juliets in for new lenses last summer and they came back completely refreshed. The frame actually looked like a new one, but I couldn't be sure. New nose pieces, temples, lenses - the glasses were like new.
All that for $70 and had them back in only a few days.

Re: Oakley Customer Service

I bought some SQ's in Vegas. I love the polarized lenses, but they're the most expensive shades I've ever had so I'm paranoid about f'ing them up.

...in my pants

Course, I have a pair of $15 knockoffs for riding that I'm not afraid to lose or wreck.

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Oakley Customer Service

I've got a pair of Xmetal XX's that I dropped like $300 on that I'd like to have "refreshed"... Ya know, tightened up, cleaned, etc... I might have to give them a call and see if they will refurb them for me.

Love them. I have a big face and they fit my eye sockets like tigerblade fits in a love sack.

VEE DUBB in da house... representin deutchland!

It's not just the defroster, it's the window tint. The tint causes the colors, but the defroster wires helps to make the spots. All of my polarized lenses (all Oakleys) do the same thing, and you can see it looking out of or at any tinted windows.

I'll try to be nicer when you start trying to be smarter.

Re: Oakley Customer Service

I have a pair of frog skins that were 3 years old when the arm broke.
Called up Oakely expecting the great service that I have heard about over the years. They told me that they are a discontinued model and the best they could do was give me $45 credit to a new pair.

There are some who call me ............................Tim

Re: Oakley Customer Service

Oakley are a class act for sure. The only brand I'll ever buy. In fact it's the only brand I have bought since 1994. Currently have have a pair of Polarized Half Jackets.

Yup. Also, wearing polarized lenses under a motorcycle helmet doesn't work so well for me, either. You seem to lose depth perception. I'd use polarized for non-under the hemet use!

Re: Oakley Customer Service

I don't see how people can even wear sunglasses under a helmet. Annoys the crap outta me.

Re: Oakley Customer Service

I can only do it if they're great big aviators... that way you're not trying to look through a crossbar when in a crouch. I'd prefer a tinted visor, just haven't got around to buying one yet.

And then there's this asshole...
