There has been a influx of FAKE Pivot products lately.

Practically EVERY Pivot product has a fake/ imitation including the popular 3-Drive, Mega Raizin etc.

Very difficult to tell the difference unless you compare them side by side.
We have some samples for you guys to check out.

Cheers,

ps. maybe some bros here can help me post some pics ( this dinosaur here dunno how).

I've got a Pivot Raizin VS, The guy who sold to me claimed he knows many ppl are selling fake ones... I keep on wondering whether his action of reminder is actually a cover for counterfeit....

If u search online trading site,u can see lots of these product selling at very suspiciously low price.
Last time some seller post comparison between the ori and fake Pivot Raizin VS (blue color).
If i recalled correctly;

Ori has 'K' marking on the condenser while cap ayam has no marking.

Now,most online traders only photo their product from a distance or not focusing the top of the condenser.

Even buying from socalled big and respectable shops and supermarket also not sure. Whats to stop them from stocking maybe 50% oris and 50% fakes..... smile_blush.gif you may get ori products if the shopwoener's daughter like you....but once you cross her, confirmed you will get the fakes smile_tongue.gif

A few times I patronised spare part shops, qouestions like you want mahal or murah punya, ori or not oris???? So they stoack for all smile_blush.gif

Totally agree on the shop owners type of business. Just found so called original clutch pump failed in 3 months, same as non original, so I think they sold me Non Ori for Ori price only.... smile_blackeye.gif smile_blackeye.gif

If you think in reversed, what brand you will name your product when you are counterfeit maker...

It would be all car manufacturer brand or very very famous after market brand.

I like to scout for new brand but with a strong background... such as Road House, sounds like a stupid brand but it is under TRW.
