I've been buying spares and parts for my toys from them for a while now and they just keep on impressing me more and more.
As far as service goes, you can't beat them.

Ordered a few seals and bearings for my KX 250, late on Monday afternoon and it was just delivered.
I've had parts delivered from them in less than 24hrs and that's from Cape town to Pta.

Pistons for a 1990 KX 250 is hen's teeth, but 1 email later and there's one on the way for me.
 
Try them. you'll be surprised.

I don't have any connection to them, just want to promote someone that really goes out of his way to do business..
Don't look back, that's not where you're going.

@Groenie

Thank you for sharing! I want to order some parts for my G450X and it is a hassle to find the stock. I see they have what I need and your post will make it easier for peace of mind to order from them.

They don't stock for a Yamaha DT180.

Clearly should have looked longer for transalp parts. Seems they actually have the air filter.

I can get most of the products at the same price - or even slightly cheaper... just send me a message

Will parts from the DT175 not work? It seems like a DT175 2mm oversize piston will be a DT180 0.5mm oversize?

Conrod not sure of, I see the 180 has 4mm longer stroke.

200 Blaster has the same bore as the DT175, also no help.
