Parts suppliers - any Australian alternatives

Hi all. I'm chasing Brembo brake overhaul parts and have been surprised by the asking prices at the only parts shop in Australia I know of. I've previously used Munich in Perth reluctantly, but looking at the cost of brake hoses and in particular caliper overhaul kits, I'm flabbergasted at what they want compared to what I can see at Moto-Bins. (perhaps Ned Kelly works there).

Moto-bins seem to feature regularly in discussion here and despite being out of stock of what I need just now, look a better source for most stuff. But are there any other suppliers of R65 bits in Australia, or other decent European suppliers perhaps?

Thanks

I tend to use Munich with the occasional large order to Motobins. Munich are cheaper than the BMW dealer!

Ok thanks. Looks like not many other choices then. But you are right about BMW dealers.

I bought my last batch of seals a d dust covers from a US eBay seller. The whole lot was less than $20US and, you guessed it, the postage was more than that.

All you need is the bore diameter for the piston ring/seal and the external diameter for the dust cover. The dust covers were a bear to fit, but they did fit.

Sounds like another option then. I'll pull them apart and see what I find. It should be possible to get hoses made locally, but not sure if the fittings on the lowers will be a problem.
