:laughing4: Do you know what KY costs...?!!  :dousing:

I've always had the agents do the stuff I needed doing under the tank. 
They're trained in the tricks and have all the tips.
I just group a number of things to do while the tank is off...

Got a quote this morning (F800GS)

Exhaust Manifold         R10142.66

Hmmm, on an XT:

Exhaust Manifold         R900 (New Original, both headers) R300 (new original, from bike with aftermarkets fitted
Spoke Wheel front      R  R1600 new from Yammie,
Consumables              R   ???? You possibly wear off a couple of microns from your spanners
Labour                        R R200 to lace the wheel, maybe 2 hours of your own time
Vat                             Included in above
                                  ------------
                                  R2700
                                  ------------

With R17k saving on a minor mishap you could get a nice little 200 for the wife, or a KDX to play with, or a year or so off your bond...

Wys die pics van die skade

Op 'n Vrydag hierdie tyd drink Plore al bier. Maar ek was by. Ek dink 'n oordentlike bashplate is noodsaaklik op 'n 800.

Yeah fooking stoopid design not to have bashplate as OEM - lucky you did not puncture your oil cooler or filter - also as naked and vulnerable as they come. One can only but be cynical and think they did this on purpose.

Not just BMW. The prices of bike parts are mad. Go look at prices for fourstroke offroad pistons( KLX KTM etc.). Those okes that price the stuff must rook something bigtime and get away with it.

I am in this position right now, broke the quick connector last night, drove out to Bavarian to get the "new" metal replacement male part. I nearly threw up when I got the price:  R321!!!! 

What the hell is happening here???





To cap it all off... came back home in a hurry, while fitting the new unbreakable part, I slipped and broke the bottom one clean off (the one shown earlier in this feed, connecting the two sides of the tank). So I just went to work with the cage, and now look for alternatives. I refuse to spend R1000+ on replacing all of them.

Bike's got 135000km, everything seems to go brittle now.

I'll follow this advice...

Just spoke to the folks at Hydraulic Design Service in Strydompark... the Rectus connectors go anywhere between R20-50 for the male part (shown in my earlier pic).

If this works, and the part fits, there's going to be a scene...   :xxbah:

WHAT" the Rectum connectors go anywhere between R20-50 for the male part (shown in my earlier pic). "

But my best the 0.2mm thick 14mm dia wavy washers for BMW discs, must cost about a cent each,  buying R 11,50 EACH...

all parts are expensive period

no matter the brand or vehicle

example:

1.3 citi golf

distributor - R5500
carb - R3200

pirate part distributor - R 295
pirate part carb - R500

2nd hand from scrap yard distributor - R399
2nd hand from scrap yard carb - R500

i'm sorry that is just crazy prices for orignal vw parts  :o

True.

Just spent an hour browsing HDS' catalogue, and put together all the pieces and replacement "original" BMW fuel lines (60bar burst rating..!?) for R1100.

Includes all three quick connectors male and female, clamps, an elbow contraption.. will report back on the whole replacement (est cost using original motorrad parts = R3000-00). Just need to get Indian Red (black).. dunno what that is, but I'll get me some.  :toothy3:

what is the reason for this high pricing??

one thinks massive profiteering for one.

but i had this idea.  perhaps they price parts like this to stop people from buying all the seperate parts and building their own bikes???
