Good news I ordered side panel from John Lampkins yesterday and lo and behold they have arrived this morning...Superb customer servicei!!!
Intially I was worried about obtaining spares and the costs BUT I can now put to sleep any fears.....
Side panel = £14.80 / 23USD
Air filter = £15.80 / 25USD
Beta UK did comment that the 07 onwards plastics are very good so I have no concerns....the boys @ Caerphilly enduro club were moaning about the quality of plastics on the new KTM's saying they were poor..!
time to change filters / C+S and other little bits....
