Being in little old New Zealand there isn't a huge selection of parts and access unless you pay $$$ for genuin parts imported,i sometimes use motorbins in UK but the currency conversion isn't pleasent and links from Aus or USA where my $$ can get alittle more would be great,so long as they would ship to the colonies

Great

Motobins is the place that quite a few Aussies shop including me also motoworks in UK is not too bad and another place I just found out about a week or so back

Second hand gear is usually available via fleabay but there seem to be a few places saying they only sell to the US lately.

The problem with the UK and USA is the cost or freight to NZ. I'd be interested to know if there are K-wreckers in Aus???? For those in NZ, I'm loath to tell you my source, but since you have all been so helpful, Mount Motorcycles in Tauranga are the local BMW bike agent. They are in Mt Maunganui. They are one of the few authorised BMW Bike agents in NZ. They do second hand parts and wreck the odd bike as well. They don't have a website, so you have to ring them. I managed to get a replacement 4way flasher switch (hazard warning to us) and the part to make my side stand stay down. Also got a replacement catch for the panniers that was cracked. Very helpful people.

I've had very good luck on eBay in the USA, UK and Australia, as well as Discount Motorcycle Wreckers in Melbourne and South West Motorcycle Wreckers in Sydney.

With the last two I've found the key is to e-mail them first, then call to hash out a better price. Both have been accommodating.

The key to eBay, and I say this having traded on there for over 11 years, is to e-mail the seller on their local site, e.g. ebay.co.uk, and ask the pertinent questions. Once the seller knows you're not a tyre kicker, they'll usually make an effort to offer international shipping even if the auction says local postage only.

Hope that helps.

Alex.
