The rate you are offered when payment is made may differ to the "mid market rate" depending on the method of payment used. You can also select the currency from the top right hand side of this website, this will give you an estimated price. The price at the time of check out may differ slightly depending on the payment method being used.

This will also apply to purchasers where an item has been over priced by mistake. We endeavor to work in a fair manner for our customers, so if we have over priced an item by mistake, we will inform you in a timely manner.

Discount pricing. From time to time we will have sales or offer reduced prices for clearance items or end of line items.

Exceptions to this may include but not be limited to orders placed on the weekends or Friday. Orders placed late Friday or on a weekend will still require adequate time for payments to clear and freight to be arranged. Delivery time is estimated to be between 2-10 business days or as notified at time of ordering. Extended lead times may apply due to your location, size of the order and packaging requirements etc. or delays in the postal / freight system that are out of our control.

If no such arrangements can be made, we, or our delivery partner, will attempt to contact you to arrange an alternative delivery time. Any goods returned to VANEM as “undeliverable”, will only be returned to you after appropriate handling and delivery charges are paid.


Shipping and handling rates are calculated based upon your location and the size / weight of your order. Upon completion of your order the shipping cost will be displayed on your invoice and or quote.

In the rare case we accept an order in this fashion, the purchaser (you) will be liable in full for all shipping liabilities. In the instance a drop ship is sent outside of Australia (from Australia or Direct ship from Japan), the receiver of the goods is responsible for all delivery issues including but not limited to taxes and or duties applied at time of delivery to the end user (customer) if so applicable. In the case of any dispute, you the purchaser will be responsible to facilitate all resolutions. At all times we will of course help resolve any issues with shipping to the full extent that is possible and or reasonable.


If you believe your order / consignment is short (missing products) at time of delivery, we the supplier (VANEM) must be advised within 2 business days of you receiving the goods. Any claims after this time may be dismissed if not disclosed in a prompt manner. In the case of parcel delivered damaged and missing products, it is the purchaser’s responsibility to notify the delivery services of the problem at the time of delivery.

Whilst we (VANEM) will make every reasonable effort to rectify the issue, you understand and agree in advance that it may require time to investigate and check our stock to determine if you believe the order is short. At all times we work from a packing list that is verified and doubled checked prior to shipping all goods. Orders may also be photographed at time of packing and date stamped for our records and reference prior to the order being sealed.


In the exceedingly rare case that you find a manufacturing fault when you receive your parts or products, please contact us prior to returning the item. Most products sold by VANEM will carry a 12-month warranty to the original purchaser of the product where they meet the conditions stipulated in our warranty policy. Please ask at the time of ordering for specific details about warranties as some parts are excluded from manufacturer's warranties. You can also check the warranty tab found at each products details page within the website. However, it is not written or implied that all parts carry warranty and we "VANEM" will not be liable for any costs beyond the products purchase price. This may include but not be limited to break downs, repairs by third parties, towing, loss of income or any other associated costs. The parts that carry warranties are warranted by the manufacturers so any replacement and or repair is generally at their discretion. VANEM will do everything possible to have an item considered for warranty, where appropriate, and will handle all dealings on your behalf. Any item that is found to be faulty must be returned to us to verify the issue before it will be processed for warranty. We may ask you for photographic proof prior to returning and to help speed up any warranty claim. If the product is found to have a manufacturing fault, we will return all costs incurred for the postage and replace the part as needed in a timely manner once granted by the manufacturer or as ruled by VANEM and once the originally purchased items has been returned for verification. We (VANEM) at our discretion will decide to 1, replace, 2, refund or 3, repair the product after verification of a fault. 

VANEM will accept product returns for warranty and provide you with a refund, exchange, or repair where:

1)      The product is clearly faulty or is not of acceptable quality; or

2)      The product is not fit for its intended purpose; and

3)      You can present your original sales receipt or other adequate proof of purchase.

VANEM has clear warranty terms and conditions. Before a warranty claim is considered, please see our full warranty policy, or contact us to discuss the process for obtaining warranty. In short, all goods returned for warranty must be returned to us (VANEM) for inspection and testing. Goods must only be returned for warranty with a warranty claim number and VANEM warranty form filled out in full. Goods showing signs of misuse, neglect or alteration may be void of warranty. All goods not installed by qualified licensed professionals may also be void of warranty. Goods used for race or closed-circuit use will not be covered under any circumstances.

Certain items will come with a VANEM serial number or decal to identify the parts origin, in the case goods are missing identifiers or you cannot be verified as the original purchaser of the goods, warranty may be void.

PRODUCTS USED FOR RACING: All warranties will be void for parts that are used for racing use, off-road or if the parts are installed on bikes other than the listed models in which they are intended.

SUITABILITY: Parts fit only applications listed with each item so if in doubt ask prior to purchase. We are not responsible for incorrect fitment if your bike is a mix of old and new model parts (e.g.: If you quote your bike is a 78 model and it is running 2005 import parts then that is your responsibility to know what bike you have and request parts correctly in the first instance) any result of incorrectly ordered and fitted parts in such a situation will be the owner’s responsibility. Parts that have been modified, altered, or changed in any way from how they were sold will also not be considered for warranty.

ELECTRICAL PARTS: Generally electrical parts are not returnable unless there is a clear fault on receipt of the part at the time of delivery (prior to fitment). If you are unsure about suitability of the part you wish to purchase, please ask us prior to sale and we can confirm the suitability and compatibility of the item for your application. Parts listed will work on models listed only. These parts rely on correct fitment by professional and experienced people. Electrical goods can be damaged by existing faults that have not been fixed prior to fitting. Please do your diagnostic work prior to fitting new parts not with the new parts - (Parts can be easily ruined by neglecting to fix faults).

EXHAUST SYSTEMS: Warranties do not cover damage caused by crashes, modification, exposure to corrosives such as cleaning products or deterioration caused by exposure to the elements or wear. The owner is responsible for all damage caused by poor installation, off-road use, accidents, use on race days and track days, neglect or when engines are incorrectly tuned. Warrantee is not available for bluing of chromed systems or for discoloring of stainless systems. It is a normal process that will happen with use. Manufacturer's warranties will apply when applicable to manufacturing faults. Exhaust warranty returns must have approval prior to return and have all hardware and documentation returned when making any claim. In general DAYTONA & POSH exhaust systems we offer will be covered by a 12-month warranty for normal private use.

NOTE: Incorrectly tuned engines that are causing excessive running temperatures and engines that have excessive vibration issues may void exhaust warranties. This is also applicable to systems fitted in an alternative manner to the recommended guides (e.g.: failing to use the correct exhaust hanger or dampers). Some exhausts rely on the engines being correctly tuned to make the most out of the new system. Taking measures to service and check the tune of your engine after modifications will ensure correct use and longevity of the product purchased. We highly recommend the state of tune be checked by a professional tuner when fitting any new exhaust system. This is to help avoid possible damage to your engine and new exhaust which can result by neglecting to have the carburetor settings adjusted. Always check and make needed adjustments when fitting exhausts and air filters. Use a reputable technician and have your engine dyno tuned when making modifications if possible, failing to do so can be costly and void warranty. If making a claim for an exhaust system we will ask for these tuning details, and the details of your service work that was done when fitting the new system.

WEAR AND TEAR ITEMS: We do not warrant (nor does the manufacturer) parts such as cables, bulbs, filters, brake component such as pads and rotors, engine and gear box components and rubber items. SR400/500 models and other bikes that are modified can have excessive vibration known to cause faults with frames, headlights and brackets, indicators, mirrors etc. when the engine is poorly tuned. Owners have a responsibility for these problems. For example, if you have removed the indicator mounting rubbers and fit indictors to a solid mount, excessive vibration may cause faults, this may also occur with mirrors and any other component that can be harmed by excessive vibrations due to poorly maintained or modified bikes / engines or off-road use. To the same extend use of products on the racetrack under harsh conditions will cause excessive wear. Please do your research prior to modifications being made and ensure correct fitment of parts is carried out in a safe and lawful manner. Failing to do so will result in warranties being void if proof of correct work cannot be verified.

ALLOY TANKS: All tanks should have extra care taken to avoid any rubbing, chaffing and wear by piping, frames and or harnesses which may cause faults. Tanks should always be mounted correctly on the rubber mountings as fitted to the bike when it left the factory or as supplied by the manufacturer of the tank. Making corrections and modifications by removal of such parts is at the owner’s own risk. Faults caused by excessive vibrations due to poorly maintained bikes and or poor fitment is also the owners responsibility. Any tanks incorrectly fitted will not be considered for warranty. Please check your tank for fitment and that the tank is not being damaged in anyway. We advise to do this on a regular basis to avoid any faults. Warranties will also be void for damaged caused by crashes, modification, exposure to corrosives such as cleaning products or deterioration caused by the elements or wear. The owner is responsible for all damage caused by poor installation, off road use, use on race days and track days. Please use care when maintaining your alloy tank to prolong its life. Also note, removal or smoothing down of welds may cause leaks and or premature fault to alloy tanks. Under no circumstances should you alter the weld or construction of the tank. VANEM will not be held liable for any costs associated with leaks or fault on tanks that have been painted. It is the customers responsibility to check the tank for faults prior to painting.

INCORRECTLY FITTED & NEGLEGTED PRODUCTS: or products where service intervals have not been adhered to and or cannot be shown to have been completed will not be considered for warranty. The correct operation of parts depends on installation procedures and maintenance schedules being followed. If the parts are not fitted by an experienced licensed technician and proof of installation or regular service intervals is not available, warranty may be void. Please care for your parts to maintain their longevity and to keep your bike and yourself safe!

The correct operation of parts always depends on installation procedures being followed so do it right the first time and enjoy years of safe riding, always do regular maintenance, and check safe operation on a regular basis!
