    Default After Market Spares

    Hi all

    Hoping someone can guide me to where I can get spares for my bike
    Yes, the dealerships are first port of call...
    But when they are asking half of what I paid for the bike for one part, and then have to wait 3 months for it....
    Have tried Startline, but they do not carry the parts I am looking for (superbike)

    Is there another Midas like shop I can look for bike spares?

    eBay...

    You sometimes wait a couple of days. But eBay for the win!

    Howzit guys

    I have a 2015 BMW R1200 GS LC
    I need someone that is trustworthy to have a look at my bike's front forks, they are bent and leaking oil.
    It looks to me that it just needs new inner tube part on both sides, but I know nothing about forks and seals.
    Is there anyone I can send my bike to for them to have a look and sort it out, other than the stealers please
    Im in Pretoria, but anywhere in Gauteng will help
    Thanks

    Hi there Colin

    I only noticed your request now so not sure if you have sorted your forks yet ...

    But Justin, his business is called Motorrad Tech in Benoni and he is excellent - 011 425 6632 (hope he is still around)

    A bit of a double edged sword because the locals will probably be shopping here, but if you go direct then you have the import/shipping etc hassles while you may save on costs.
