Parts in NI

Post by Weealwyn » Sun Jan 20, 2019 4:38 pm

Hi all,
Still new to the site, so apologies if this has been asked.

Where do folk from NI source their bike parts?
I have a GS and will need service items as well as brake discs and pads soon.

Any recommendations?

Between Ballyclare and Bangor everyday - but do travel quite a bit for good service.

When I need spark plugs I usually track down the NGK part number and call fyffes ,in Ballymoney or Belfast, they are usually cheaper that ordering from the mainland.
Filter wise I try wemoto and eBay, as the main stealer is usually expensive,but some folk like OE oil filters,it's personal choice.
Oil wise we use Rock oil from distributor "Frank the oil man" , he's always been good to us.
Discs and pads again are wemoto and eBay again,as we experienced Hurst's quote for these parts before for a GS ☹️.

I saw you the other days Al leaving the rathgal road,only because of that great looking HB top top box😉.

I have used M&P in the past for oil and filter packages, and also brake pads.

Recently have been using the obvious Motorrad dealer as the GSA is still under warranty, and to be fair, I don't think its been overly expensive.

A friend of mine has recently used kwakiesmcspares on eBay for service parts for his LC GSA with almost 60k 100% feedback so cant be bad.

For more complex issues I have used MotoTech at Lower Ballinderry, and others have used Billy McCutcheon on the Ormeau Rd, Belfast.

Im sure there are others, but there is a host of service information on UKGSer but there is a £12 annual fee.


On another note, if you're not already aware,


Why dont you come along to our ABR Ireland Rally 10-12 May in Draperstown
