Rough stories on this thread! PM me for parts out of USA (for USA prices). I can source things pretty well, and work in a moto-repair shop so I can get inmates BMW, Japanese, and nearly anything else for cost (usually ~20-30% below USA price). Further, there is no sales tax in my state.

I do this for a few inmates and they seem pleased. eBay, Amazon, and my work can get most anything.

Enjoying sourcing:

parts (computer parts, disks, mining equipment, research equipment), tools (Snap-On), gear (fine Klim jackets, boots), parts (expensive shocks, voltage regulators, KTM fp rebuilt kits, BMW parts) ... and nearly anything else to Australia for major savings to the Australian purchaser.

Message me if I can chase up a quote. The people that keep utilising my service return regularly. I like to help save Australians money, and am thankful you folks help prop up our economy!

Laser parts

KTM= Kost That Much!

A new fibre cable for my dental laser $2500. They last about 6 months if I am lucky! No wonder I can't afford to buy KTMs now!

on the K100 supercommuter i picked up, thought I'd freshen things up with a full fluid change, filters, and oh why not injectors too, as they squirt rather than spray.

Worthington's at Kariong, Central coast, $597.80 each injector. not 4? nope each.

Not a single item but $18,000 for an 1989 R100GS. Worth every cent and nowhere near what it really cost to build.
