They are a another part of carsponsors.com and it works the same way....

They are basically a broker/middle man/contest...you fill a little out about your bike...like what you have, what you want/need, your location and that calculates what they are willing to give you sponsorship wise....

They let you know instant...or can take a longer review for possibly more money...and give you a list of companies that make parts that you MIGHT want.

Now they have connects to promotional items that companies are willing to unload, mostly crap to start out with, once you pick they request a before video, cell phone videos are fine...you receive your crap and pound of stickers and make a new video showing off your crap and upgraded HP by the new stickers....

That video is free for them to use/sell/set fire too etc....

Then you think this is awesome, I got all this crap for free..and just had to make a video...not really, but it's not a complete scam, but more a bait hook method....

A real sponsorship doesn't cost you any money at all. You run there stickers, have there name on your coat / helmet ect.. then as long as you participate in enough races and rank high enough to satisfy them, they give you money. A lot of sponsors even pay extra if you come in first in a race. But we're talking real sanctioned races like AMA MotoGP, maybe even the isle of man race ect... Weekend track days and drag strip runs dont count.. although there are some companies that will hook some people up to an extant for non sanctioned races if your well known and always racing.. but you have to be really lucky.

These people are not sponsors, they are the Motorcycle equivalent of getting housewives to sell Tupperware.

I had some extra money a couple months ago and I payed the $150. I had to make a video as a before view of my bike. Once I got views on that I could submit it for them to review and depending on how many views you wanna wait for makes a difference on what $$ parts they send. More views better stuff. You select 9 things you want.

I got a tank pad for my first product. I need more views to get more stuff tho. Tank Pad Install 08 ZX10R stunt video BikeSponsors.com Really Works! - YouTube

youtube- install- tank pad- video to watch it

But really it does work if you have the time to spend

It seems like you pay up front with cash and video making before and after new parts, then you get discounts from a few parts companies. The companies write off the discount as advertising, and the middleman keeps the first payment for their time and overhead.

I would prefer to have more of a choice for where I buy parts, but this could save you money in the long run if you buy a lot of parts from the companies listed and they keep giving you a discounted price.

As far as sponsorship, it's a scam.

As far as inadvertently paying for parts in a complicated way, then yes it's legit

I have an 8 mile single track right outside my back door that a lot of riders of all skill levels practice on.
