Cheapest OEM Spares Sources

Post by PeterJDay » Tue Jul 07, 2015 9:45 am

Before you but OEM spares in the UK try the two links below. I've just ordered a part from MSP and I'm paying 16% less than Cradley Kawasaki including the P&P cost.


https://www.motorcyclespareparts.eu Based in Germany, but with UK support telephone number.

http://www.cmsnl.com Dutch I think. Using the same part as above, about 8% cheaper than Cradley Kawasaki including the P&P cost. I've used CMSNL before and they are helpful and efficient.

I've used Cradley for all my Kawasakis and can't fault them on service + next day delivery. Sometimes it's hard to break the habit, but I might give these a try.

It turns out that both the links I've given are to Dutch companies.

Why is everything more expensive in the UK?

VAT is 21% in Holland compared to 20% in the UK, so it is not VAT rates causing the higher prices in the UK.

I have used Cmsnl for parts for my enduro bikes and found them very good. To be honest never thought of them for drifter parts,probably for some reason I thought they just did honda like David silver.

I ordered from Cradley heath Kawasaki in June and the parts were here 2 days later with a free mini maintenance spray. Nice people to deal with.
