bikecat, where are you?
There's nothing in your profile that says where you are.
If you are in the USA, WHY would you buy $2.00 seals from England????
Do you own stock in a shipping company or something?
C'mon folks, lets get real here.
Once in a while there's a deal to be had at Motobins, but for fuks sake, let's check a US dealer first, (if you are in the US of course.)
Max's has current prices listed on their catalog.
Hiya, just insert my location, sort of. I'm in Singapore. I used to have a great relationship with Jason of Hammersley until they stopped the BMW bike parts business recently. Now it is not as easy to get US dealers to ship international. An order from Hammersley typically takes 3 to 6 weeks to get to me (I suspect based on parts availability), while Motobins takes about 7 to 10 days, great for getting urgent spares and parts. I do deal with US eBay sellers and other traders, like Joshua Buck and EUBMW.

Motobins, however, does not carry all parts; for non-available parts I have to turn to the local overpriced BMW agent. :)

Eh, noob here .. what is a "lifter"?

Thanks for the tips, guys.
