Default Team Tekin Customer Service

In one word, spectacular! The new Team Tekin has fantastic customer service. I will be a Tekin customer for life. My chargers were lost in the mail and they offered to replace them, no hassels. Amazing!! I recommend to all, buy Tekin, as they are great products with great support!

Notice I stated NEW Team Tekin. The company reopened this past summer with new ownership, new facilities, and new location. The owners are great people. The "old" Tekin did not do well towards its customers near the end of their operation back in 2000. I am sorry to hear your Rebels were never returned. Hopefully, you may consider purchasing the new Rebel 2. (No I do not work or have any affiliation with Tekin, I just support their products.)

The new g-11s are suposedly super smooth. They are basicly a g-10 with much larger capacitators which makes for a super smooth speedo. My g-10 that I purchased 6 years ago is still running stronger then ever.

I have 2 G11s, They have the best throttle curve that I have felt, super reliable, and you can redo your wires with ease thanks to Tekins sodiering posts.
