i do have 2 witnesses to the fact that it vibrated before the wires where touched, a third cannot be contacted right now.
but if i read you right, i brought a $500 item, its stops working correctly after 15 kilometers, and whilst it is broken it is my fault because i lengthened the wires after that so it would be a better fit? i cannot understand your logic. shouldnt the item be of quality that it should last longer then 15 kilometers?
i will be going further with this, there must be some law in regards to the quality of goods and how long they should work? by the way there is nothing wrong with the quality of the wire extension, in the photos he sent back to me it looks as if the tape has been changed.
his dispute is the wires have caused the problem, my dispute is that a hall sensor(? not sure of proper name) stopped working, which caused the wheel to damage the wires which i repaired, under instruction from him on how to pull it apart.
Make a complaint and bring a case against him in the small claims tribunal, if he doesn't refund you, however you may lose the case as you have made changes that he will claim caused the problem. Unfortunately the onus of proof will be on you to prove that what you did was not the cause of the problem.
