How many times have you gone to order a part for your bike and the guy tells you they don't have the part in stock and it will have to be back ordered from Japan...and could well take six weeks to arrive? If you need your bike for daily transport that just sux huh? My 1400 Intruder...regulator...six weeks they said. KLR 650 water pump...six weeks. Ducati Monster...a bloody sump plug can you believe...yep...six weeks from Italy. I got all those parts from two different shops in the USA, ordered via email and ended up paying almost one third less than here anyway. In fact the regulator arrived in six days from MR Cycles. The water pump...ten days. The sump plug was about ten days. If you're just jacked off with that six weeks crap, then just check they sold or sell your bike in the USA...find one of the larger bike shops there and just email them and ask if they have the part in stock and can they send it to you in a shorter time period than the Aussie shop quoted you? Most really big shops in America stock thousands of parts for popular model bikes. Yeah I know, we're taking away from our local dealers...too bad...buying in the USA is quicker and cheaper as far as I can see. Check the price of bike clothing in the USA, and how many more styles are available. I order all my stuff from the USA or the UK now. There are also some great bargins from South African bike shops...their Rand is worse off than our dollar. Good hunting chaps.
