Somebody posted on a K12lt FB group a part supplier in Germany.
Tills.de
They have parts for the K100, K75 and K1100.
I was doing a comparison between what I would pay for parts with BMW Canada and Tills.de
Even with shipping, the difference is amazing.
Shipping cost in USD (DHL or Prio Airmail) :
0,1 to 1 KG : 12.00
1 to 2 KG : 20.00
2 to 3 KG : 30.00
3 to 5 KG : 40.00
5- to 10 KG : 50.00
Here is just a sample (parts for the K12lt)
Parts supplier Tills10

Awaiting my second order from Tills now.  I think Ringfad first posted on here about them.  

Depending on what I am after I normally price compare between EME, Tills and our UK suppliers and work out the difference.  Although postage is now quite expensive coming out of the US.  As was explained to me today, the security requirements for freight with US carriers has upped the prices.  

Postage from the UK to Oz has always been expensive, so occasionally when a forum member with business class baggage entitlement visits it is cheaper to have heavy or large items shipped within the UK, pay the VAT and arrive in their checked baggage.   Very Happy  

For me, Tills appears to have the cheapest shipping as well.  

As I intend to keep riding as long as possible, I am hoarding building up my spares inventory whilst I can still afford to do so.

I keep a lot of the receipts from MaxBMW.  It's absolutely appalling the price increases BMWNA has been putting on parts the past five years.  Some parts go up 3 or 4 times the inflation rate EVERY YEAR.

I have bookmarked the Tills link and they will be the first place I check when I need parts in the future.  In defense of MaxBMW, they now have free shipping and no sales tax on everything I buy from them.

A&S also has no tax/free shipping like Max.

Motobins also has good prices on some stuff.  Shipping to US via Royal Mail is reasonable and takes roughly 7-ish days to me on the west coast. (If your Motobins order is too heavy they use FedEx. I'd avoid that as I've seen horror stories about FedEx from Motobins on ADV. They run into customs issues.)

The worst BMW price increase I've noticed of late is the folding key 51251453659.  Used to be 
$8.xx, now $30+!  affraid


If you know the Bosch part number then some electrical parts are way cheap on Amazon.

Placed my first order with Tills in Jan 2019. Order was held in customs for 1 day I'm thinking because it was Friday.
With DHL shipping to NYC NY it took 5 days. Bosch fuel injectors, rubber fuel dampers, viton O-rings, water pump seals, tank cap seal kits, etc... all quality parts equal to the the OE

Tills has good fitting thin gloves with great dexterity for all kinds of work which I have not been able to find stateside

No VAT, custom or brokerage fee on $1200 order at that time. Things may have changed.

Fedex and UPS are known for their high price on brokerage fees.
I am always try avoiding them.
I got caught 2 months ago when I ordered new shock springs in the Netherlands.
They use UPS and the shipping was close to $100 + brokerage fees. On the top of it, the company (Hyperpro) charged me the VAT. The total cost for 2 springs was (CAD)$500.00

Volador, you mentioned Bosch fuel injectors from Till. Did you order upgraded EV 14 injectors? If yes what are your experience with EV 14?
Thanks
