OEM Part prices

Post by Firebolter » Sat Mar 21, 2020 6:20 pm

It's weird how some stuff is reasonable and you can find them online at US places and other things, crazy over priced. Example, I am setting up a set of spare rims for the KTM's and I wanted the OEM front rotor KTM part number 77709160000. It is a good rotor, floating and great quality. I looked it up and the cheapest I could find it was around 220 bucks in the US. That is frakin ridiculous! So I did some more searching and found it in Germany at a huge OEM spares place for 103 USD dollars! now it did cost 30 bucks to get it shipped here, but still. Not all things are cheaper in Europe, but with the strength of the dollar versus the EU, pays to check over there to.

Anyway, if you are looking at OEM Spares, check this place out, it "might" be cheaper and they carry DAMN near every brand OEM parts.

thats my point! It's not all parts but some! That stock KTM rotor I bought is a Galfer unit, good stuff more than half the price of it in the US.

I did some more comparisons, and you want to see real whacky? The Lambda sensor for the 500 is OUTRAGEOUSLY over priced in the US--

Bobitt's KTM, who is one of the better KTM online parts places price wise anyway
KTM part num 75041090200. LAMBDA SENSOR. $501.88

Munn Racing
KTM part num 75041090200 LAMBDA SENSOR $738.06

MSP in Germany
KTM part num 75041090200 LAMBDA SENSOR USD 156.74

That's fucking ridiculous! A DAMN lambda sensor for 100's of dollars? I will be comparing every DAMN part I buy in the future with MSP. I ordered that brake rotor and had it within 8 days. It shipped via DHL, I got tracking info and when it hit NYC, it went into the US Postal system and got delivered to my door with my mail. KTM OEM in original packaging just like it came from the factory.

Another whacky one
The exhaust can on the 6Days
Bobitt's---Silencer Sixdays KTM part num 79705082000 $534.47
Munn Racing KTM part num 79705082000 Silencer $753.29
MSP KTM part num 79705182000 SILENCER SIXDAYS USD 283.65

See what you find when you are bored, stuck at home and are social distancing? You find out how much disparity there is and that it pays to shop around. This is a HUGE difference in pricing and I cannot believe it is all just currency valuation differences.

And they cover the following brands with parts fiche and pictures to make it super easy to find your parts

a couple of months ago for my Miata I needed the injectors. All I could find around here was at ~EUR550/piece for a new aftermarket one. Ordered 4 factory refurbisehd from ebay.com and was lucky enough to have someone bring them over to Latvia. 40Eur alltogether :thumbup:

I have an older one (genII). Looks is not that great, but it's really fun to drive. Almost like a go-kart. I wasn't sure when I bought it, but it was the top pick according to the reviews I read in an affordable fun-to-drive rwd category and with time I started to love it. would want some more power though.
