Hi everyone, got myself a forty eight few weeks ago, curious about the cleaning and polishing regime esp in sg condition. Any tips from the pros .. dos and don't.

Not at the.moment man...

 

Wah sian... you know of any US website that we can get oem harley parts from?

 

I bought some original harley parts from a US harley dealer after Harley stopped them from selling to international customers... I just used Vpost, so for delivery you put the US address given by Vpost USA. For payment I registered a paypal account also using the same US address. (yes i lied so that i dont have to pay ridiculous dealer prices)

 

So when you order it will pass the most US sites criteria for a local sale (as in they think you are a US resident purchasing within US)

That was at least 3 months ago, dunno whether they've plugged this loop hole yet.

But i'm just about to buy a set of LED indicator lights and will test it out again...

Let you know if i'm successful.

Yeah I know the method you are talking about. I have been using Borderlinx from Citibank all the while so I always have my items shipped to a US address. The problem now is that I have problem finding the parts to begin with. Gone are the days when you can type in the parts numbers in ebay and get a whole list to choose from. Now there's hardly any oem parts on ebay... well, at least not for the derby covers, seats, pegs and handlebars I searched for recently....

What I do is I google the part no. Then just compare prices among the few US Harley dealers that still have an online store like surdyke, chicago harley, kutter harley etc. You'd be surprised how much cheaper they sell it... Even compared to some of the eBay listings.... Zanotti's used to have some really low prices (for some parts) but now they require you to call before you can make an online purchase.... Lame right?

 

Ok so more secrets out of the bag... Quickly... How do i erase my posts?!? :)

Try ebay... a lot of parts can be found in ebay at lower price, even after including shipping charges.

Ohh really! Had already tried doing that but thought the 'old birds' here would have better recommendation because it require seat kits to make the whole installation complete. Not sure if seller at eBay does that....?

There will be ebay stores that sell the whole kit. If they only list the seat, you can email them for the rest of the kits. They are usually helpful.
