Yup, I had the shocking experience of getting a quote for this. bmw only sell the rotor and stator as a pair. I picked up an aftermarket stator for ~$200 and it's good as gold.

This may not be the most expensive item here, but it certainly took a lot longer to arrive than one might expect.
$70 for a triumph clutch cable from a dealership... it took 6 weeks to arrive.

oh and whilst i remember
~$200 for an exhaust valve cable for daytona 675. fixed it myself with a $5 cable from the push bike shop.
>$400 for bmw f800gs cooling fan. purchased a $50 fan from ebay instead.

In the late 80's, $200 for a BMW airhead regulator, the exact same Bosch part from the Bosch shop in Braddon cost $12. How's that for extortion?

If you own a VW with a wing-mirror indicator, the replacement globe (a VW-specific item) costs $40, the same part for a Skoda costs $80, for a bloody indicator globe FFS!

Wasn't there a magazine a few years back that priced up a Yammy WRF out of spares, came to some ridiculous figure, hate to own a BMW, and now a VW and Skoda with dodgy indicators

Mind you I priced the base valves for my forks and got told something like $500 each. ended up finding a near new pair for about $200. I could handle that.

MaxBMW in the USA recently built a brand new R90S from available spares, and they were probably better than 95% accurate to the original. Total parts cost was somewhere around US$45K. The 90S might've been OZ$5K in the 1970's?? Guessing there though.

I think it was Sidetrack magazine and a $24K Honda XR250 if bought in spare parts
