I am looking for the best places to buy parts from. Is there anywhere in oz that is reasonable or does everyone go overseas. I need to buy, fuel pump, tank sender, service parts.

The only things I buy in Oz are Oil and filters. The rest comes from Motobins, Motoworks or James Sherlocks in UK
The cheapest place in Oz is Munich Motorcycles and he buys from any of these 3 places at probably a bit less than you or I pay.
Any fuel pump that you can get to sit into the right place and meets the requirements i.e. pressure and volume will work properly there is nothing special about a BMW brand Common pumps are VL Commodore fits in with a filter attached and EB, EF Falcon sedan (not wagon) can do the job but is smaller in diameter.
EME is a good place for the pump mounts etc. http://www.euromotoelectrics.com/category-s/753.htm
Fuel gauge sender there are used ones around but OEM from UK is probably the best bet.

Munich Motorcycles or The BM shop in Brisbane. It really depends how sure you are on what you want. If there's any doubt, I'll go to my local dealer and show him, thereby ensuring that if the wrong part gets ordered, it's his f*ck up. I did think it was strange that a few years ago, I could get the most expensive oil filter in Australia- K&N -delivered from UK cheaper than I could get the cheapest filter in Australia.Luckily, Rick has put me on to a Ryco now. I used to use find findapart.com.au if I wanted to do some easy shopping around.

Thanks for the replies it is nice to have some leads. I am a motorcycle mechanic by training and now run a OPE parts department so pretty good at getting orders right.
How are the Ryco filters?

hf163 are my preference oil filter til the ryco becomes so cheap that you cant afford not to get one

moto bins and motorworks are the go

but with the falling aussie dollar makes prices go up a little

by the way we don't pay the tax when buying stuff from blighty (on their websites ) ,,,so the price is the before tax one ...so far

just wait till our treasurer pulls out all the stops later this year ....we'll be paying the gst on overseas stuff I recon .

Charlie99... Hi, what do you pay for a HF163 there.? I got one recently, $20 after a 10% discount, and also got a ryco the other day, was just under $8..!!! Does that mean its crap, hahaha, dunno the answer to that...
OEM BMW around $40, same without BMW badge, at $22...

Just got my first order of few bits from Motorworks, uk, super quick, though they charged 35 pounds for a small box, ouch... Sure don't take much to spend 400 notes :-(

depends where you buy jeremy

but somewhere about 12 to 18 dollars for the hf163 (seems to be worth it though )

have always had issues with ryco in the standard sizes ...fortunately for my other vehicle ,the old "rolla sx " there is a larger performance version that does about the same- similar job as the Toyota unit (about 4 dollars cheaper for the ryco ) the ryco unit the same size gives me lower pressure andseems to last well for about 1/2 the time 4000 k ?( less filter element maybe ?)the performance version lasts about 3/4 the time of the Toyota unit, so I take my judge from that as it gets me about 6-7000 ks before the pressure drops ,,,rolla is now 510900 ks on the clock .

large bulky items are usually worth buying local cause of that freight cost ...which has skyrocketed over the last year from blighty

I got a 3 spoke rear rim from over there a couple of years ago for not much more than what you just paid ...its big ...its bulky but glad I don't have to do it again at todays prices

cheers

I mostly use the Ryco Z418, and under $10.00 is a bargain for a quality filter that I can buy at most good auto shops with my oil, were as the HF163 is around the $20.00 mark and has to be ordered in or bought on line.
I have both these filters in front of me and the Ryco is made in China, the HF163 is madein Thailand.
So in Australia if something is cheap it normally comes from China, but if your Chinese and something is cheap it normally comes from Thailand!
Flip a coin and use what you want, but I'll stick with the Ryco for the price and quality.

Postage is a bit of a lucky dip, I got a cross slide 6" bench vice a few weeks ago on ebay and at 30lb it was only $28 where a few small bits from bins was $29. From what I can gather some get good freight prices from the forwarders and pass it on but others cant help but line their pockets and I try not to buy from them and if on ebay give poor feedback.

Sounds like you lucked in on that one, I just got a set of 4 fuel injectors off ebay an a guy in Cal USA, super helpful, and $20usd shipping, that was ok, I dunno how motorworks, Moto bins, Beemer boneyard, ect do there shipping costings, but there all crap, a oil filter and o ring, washers, is cheep, till you add shipping, try adding a few bits, and it gets worse... The bits i just got were fuel hoses, water hose, and some hose clamps, not much else, but it did come to my door in 4 days, even with xmas in the middle...!!! So much FUN LOL...

Holly crap on the tires price, Im just about to send a pair of tires from Hamilton, north island, to Nelson, top of south island, going off monday, taped together, $50 via 2 day courier..!!!

New Zealand Post from NZ to Australia isn't much dearer than local post. If you were wanting 4 filters it could be worth while.
It gets dear when the items have a large volume and reach 10kg though.

I have a friend who is the Star track manager for northern NSW and he said get an account with them and the freight will halve.

The BT45 prices are about what I paid from my local bike shop and they treat me very well due to having bought about 10 bikes from them and they sponsored me when I raced also.

Looks sharp deals.
Saying that everything in New Zealand is overpriced so comparing to us is a bad idea.

Hey Kaptain, I've been running the same combination of tyres, and yesthe bike does perform so much better.
Your wallet also does better buying there.
Australian price on those tyres are> Bridgestone T30 $175.00
Avon AV46$ 240.00 total> $415.00

Buying at Rocky Mountain ATV with the current exchange rate:
Bridgestone T30 $129.00
Avon AV46$168.00 total> $297.00 Australian.

It just shows how the Australian suppliers are ripping us off, when you can buy tyres from the States and freight them here cheaper than you can buy tyres here.

Could you please check Mossy if your filter has the hole in the "nut" ? Thanks

Im kicking myself because I could've bought the T30 which has superseded the bt023
Re handling... gave it some stick down Thunderbolts Way on my way to Sydney... flawless. Totally solid. I think the slightly wider rear and the radial ply make a big difference.

I read somewhere that the original BMW oil filter had the nut on the end but BMW found there were issues so they switched to a faceted canister instead.
The manual does say tho... by hand till firm then give it half a turn

Its in bike now and I don't remember a hole.
It was about 17 mm.
I put it in hand tight and then added a 1/2 turn on a oil wet o-ring and the nut didn't distort or any tacks come off where its tack welded on.

I guess the issue may be it you crank up a lot and it tears off you will struggle to remove it or would have a tack weld hole in the outer body.

The filter I removed was standard style and I took it out by hand with a piece of bike tyre tube and fingers. Not sure it should have been so easy. :silent:

The factory filter, 11 42 1 460 845, has never had a 'nut' to secure it. Don't read everything you believe.

If it's a K&N (part number KN-163) then it should have the hole drilled in the too easily twisted-off 17mm 'nut'. It's for safety wire purposes as per racetrack requirements.

What you seek can be had for far cheaper offshore than by buying in OZ, though there are some pleasant surprises at your local Beemer shop...if you can't stand the corporate Team Moto mob there's the semi-corporate mob at Motorline in Daisy Hill.

For basic stuff like oil filters when I was stationed permanently back home in OZ and had less choice I would look to Motobins as they were quite inexpensive when bought with a stack of other parts needed. The only problem was that Royal Mail ask a fair penny for postage to the antipodes and you won't know the charges 'til you get the credit card bill.

Motobins link

Their Reisen brand of oil filter used to be about AU$8 a piece, now they're closer to $10+ with the Aussie dollar resting down at the bottom once again (81 cents US) against the Pound and the Yankee Dollar.

Knsc,

If you are after the aluminium crush washers, they are available from Wurth Oz, who have a shop at Ormeau. Just up the road from Helensvale. Normally come in packets of 100 but they will break them down to smaller amounts for you.

Dave.
