    Supplier for maintenance parts

    Hi,
    I am from Newfoundland, Canada but have an 09' 1200GS in Kinsale. I am looking for a supplier for maintenance parts?
    Plugs
    Alternator belt
    engine oil/filter
    Gear oil
    I am familiar with JT Motorcycles but wondering if he will have plugs & belt? I will be in Kinsale the end of September and looking forward to riding there again.
    Thanks for any suggestions,
    Kelly

    Hey Kelly hope you enjoy yourself and the Irish hospitality we are known for. I'm sure JT Motorcycles will have no problem sourcing all of the parts you need if you give him enough notice. Any issues feel free to PM me as I can get all of the above requirements from my local motor factors.
    Cheers .

    Thanks for the suggestions. I don't see an email for JT Motorcycles but will try to call. I have been to his place to purchase items before and he has been great. Yes, I do enjoy the Irish hospitality. The eastern side of Newfoundland was settled by the Irish and the accent is still very strong. This will be my 4th trip to Ireland and I plan to make lots more!

    Andy Hourigan just outside Newmarket, Co.Cork (not to be confused with Andrew Hourigan Motorcycles in Newmarket) is ex-BMW mechanic and really helpful guy.
    He could likely have the parts in stock - 0872956045 (or +353872956045 from where you are)
    Just 'cos you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you !

    Remember, experience only means that you screw-up less often.

    Thanks for the heads up on the tariff. I found a used belt that I have here. I just wanted one for a spare as I am not sure about the condition of the belt on the bike. I will drop out to JT's once I am there.
    Thanks

    Thanks. Can’t wait for my first Guinness! They don’t taste the same if not in Ireland. I’ve done the tour of the plant in Dublin but much better in a local pub.

    Hello
    Mahle\Knecht filters available at City Motor Factors, Kinsale Road, Cork. Ten mins from airport.
    Conti belts or equivalent available from many motor factors too.
    Usually overnight delivery for these parts.
    Gear oil readily available of course. NGK plugs from local moto shops.
    This based on R1150 experience.

    Give me a list of part numbers and oil spec and I can pick 'em up for you in the coming week.
    Save you faffing' about in the first days of your trip. And you'll have more time to enjoy a pint of *Murphys*.

    Spare parts.

    As long as you have the BMW part number, any BMW dealer should have to supply these.
    I had some trouble with the different BMW franchises in Galway, snooty etc; but when they finally understood, that BMW parts will be shipped 'ex Germany' no matter what, I got the bits I needed.
    Mahle, same issue with local suppliers, because they cant find the part numbers in their Mahle car literature, the fuel filters for example.
    The other bits as in 'two wheels good'
    Cheers and happy motoring.

    Is it a non UK or EU thing,?

    The amount of posts / YT videos of people with brand spankers

    New bikes / cars, who rock up to a mom and pop type backstreet repair shop for a first service / repair on there brand new steed,

    And then use pattern parts to carry out said service and repair

    Do they not realise that the supplying main dealer does all that, and carrys the required oe spares for that reason ??


    To the OP , without wishing to sound negative, any Motoraad dealer , will be able to supply the required service items you need

    I had a look today and I thought I had an o-ring/crush washer kit for my hexhead but it is for a camhead.
    I would like to change fluids; oil, trans, FD, brakes and put new crush washers/rings.
    Two wheels good, is it to late to give you a list? Can I PM you? I am happy to trip around to pick them up but also happy for assistance? Looks like you are in Cork? I arrive Tuesday afternoon to Kinsale
    Thanks
    Kelly
