  4. When I droped my GT650R I had all parts except for a clutch lever and indicator the next day. It took 9 days to get the other 2 parts in. I paid for it out of my own pocket and repaired it myself. Sounds like someone is not telling you the full story.

  6. 2 weeks? That's pretty good, IMO.

    I was told 6 weeks (if I was lucky) to get parts in for my Aprilia. Told the guy at the shop to hold the order: ordered the parts online from the States instead. Took 4 days to my door and was literally half the price the shop quoted, for the exact same original Aprilia parts.

    Unfortunately Australia is a small market, and many retailers/importers either don't care or want to try and screw you. I'm all for supporting local business, and prefer to deal with the bike shop rather than online retailers - but you've got to draw the line somewhere. And I'm pretty sure the line is well before double the price. :p :roll:

  7. Well when they say about 2 weeks, allow a few extra days due to weekends. They will have shipped them here normal freight, not express, so the next issue arrises, now remember there was most likely a bulk order made with other goods, and it has to go through customs. So if it isnt priority freight it gets checked eventually. I was always sure ex japan was about 3 weeks from memory.. I am sure they wont be far away now.

  9. Yep, it's so worth buying new eh? Warranties and parts availability make it so much better than an older bike! :LOL:
