g"day mate depends what parts you are after and how urgent you need them

on the "portal tab" in middle of page "parts supplier list

http://hrsbstaff.ednet.ns.ca/bvogel/K100/download/K100%20links.htm

Most of us order from overseas as cheaper and usually delivered to your door

Welcome Bill. You'll find the forum a wealth of useful K bike info and worth a few laffs too. It's good to see another Victorian member, there are a few of you, and I was originally one too.

When you get a mo', as Chazza suggested, drop a few lines into the Member's Intro page and also add your bike year and model to your signature under the profile tab. This helps other members with not having to guess the specifics if a question is asked or advice sought after.

Cheers.

One member has helped with an ecu (ps I pulled lid off, patted it dry, put in oven on low,, sat on gas heater for a day, plugged it in and it hasn't failed since!)
Munich-cycles were great, rang, and express post LH front lens and new windscreen
Thanks for the tips
All I need to do now is fix side stand mount that delivery company broke and she will be as good as new

You guys crack me up, thanks for the morning tummy tickle,
I've picked up the few parts I need from ebay mainly , fortunately the great selling point of the Ks is their reliability, so repairs and replacement have been few for me, and I am a bit of a Scrooge so I only pay when I need to.
The only major repair was a reco gearbox for the RT , still hasn't been run in thoroughly. Nothing significant done to the LT yet, cross fingers.
The RT is up to 183000 and the LT is sitting on a modest 108000. I average around around 7000 per year, I need to get out more.

Hey RT. I have only tried twice.

O rings for the injectors the guy wanted $8 each = $64 for a set.

Mirrors for my naked conversion guy wanted $99. EACH.

Give him a try. If you need something urgently add on the price of postage from the UK or States and then compare.



Enjoy the sun

Thanks mate, was just wondering. I got an email from Motobins re a sale on disc rotors for the K so I just ordered a new rear one at 60 quid plus postage, should be around $150.00. I'll see how it goes, might have the one Alby gave me as a forum spare.

Sorry to be so long Sean, 98 quid minus 20% discount for October, for non ABS oldies.
I should have ran it through the forum before ordering we might have saved some freight.
Been 2 days and still hasn't arrived.
I've been waiting 3 weeks for a Suzuki dealer near me to get me fork seals and fork springs. I could've gone to Japan and got them by now. These guys wonder why we buy online, I was trying to do the right thing by the
dealer to keep in good. Sucks.

For anything, I will always try the local businesses first. I understand that it may cost a bit more, but I always set my limit to 20% over the online cost.
If you don't give an opportunity to local businesses first, ultimately they will go under and that's not good for the local economy.
