It is pretty much across the board.
I try and support the local industry but it can be hard.

DR 650 flywheel puller.



Procycle in the USA = US$79.95 + Express mail $40.95
I ordered some other parts and it dropped to $30 mail but will keep it at the single item mail cost.

I ride over to the local Suzuki dealer thinking it might only be around $120.
The guy rings Suzuki,writes down $105 (cool I think) then writes down $195 which is the cost.

It is on the way from Procycle

Procycle AU$117.43 to the door.
Suzuki AU $195
Saving = $77.57

To buy locally.

USA - US$79.95
Australia - US$200.76

In the late 80's I worked for an automotive wholesaler... Bosch delivered the wrong parts, can't remember what we ordered, but they delivered some fuel injection controllers/ECUs instead.
I recall the original parts would have been about $100 odd to us, these devices ere over $20k each...

May have been about 3 years ago as they were delivered in 08. I have seen several nice machines go down at Eastern Creek ,being one of the staff there you see lots pushing past their ability, there's lots of red mist around them parts

Bought a Great Wall twincab ute for the junior tech last December.

Brake pads with a service $2700.00 at 20k

Seems the pads only come with rotors.

They're now due again at 50k, I'm looking on ebay for replacements.

DON'T BUY GREAT WALL!!

But you already knew that didn't ya.

The Fräulein puts her Mazda 3 sport thing in for a service.
Charge for four spark plugs was $200+
A $900 service looked to be oil,plugs,filters and a look over.

She said,don't embarrass me,say nothing.
I love my DR650
