Greetings to all,
Several of you might have seen my posts regarding the installation of lightbulbs into thesaddlebag lights on my brand new 1800. They are not fitted to my bike as it is built to Australian specs and they are not required. I phoned the Honda dealer where I bought the bike from asking him to price bulbs,bulbholders and sub-harnesses. After two days he came back with prices that are unbelievable and quoted delivery of 3-4 weeks. Heorders the parts from the sole importer of Hondas in New Zealand, theyorder from Japan,they in turn order from America, so by the time I get the parts 4 people have put their mark-up on.
Anyway I would just like to thank Mr 1200 (Guru) for his post on suppliers. I sent an email to Hondaonline parts and they have all the parts in stock for a fraction of what I would have paid down here. You can imagine what I told the dealer, but he said his hands are tied as to where he can get his parts.
Regards to all,
