I've seen SO many nice mods on peoples bikes from this forum, most being in the US & UK, which seem to have plentiful shops, particularly online as well.

I'm in Australia, fairly new to all this, wondering if there are any particularly recommended resources for aftermarket bike parts - either shops in Melbourne or perhaps online Australian stores. Looking for stuff like a pillion cowl (presumable I'd get that through a dealership?) to other aftermarket goodies from the likes of Akrapovic, Gilles, R&G, woodcraft, HRC, Power commander or something similar...

Also anyone know of a recommended dyno place in Melbourne? (that one is probably for the future...)

(edit): how about suspension shops?

i am over the ditch in auckland , but your prices are way high like ours, try looking into shipping gear from the states.. it is way cheaper.

Cyclesector.com is a great store... as for sus and tuning ??

Fantastic, looks like shipping from o/s and user on this forum are the way to go. I did notice prices were pretty high around here. Many thanks!

There are several excellent vendors on this site:

-"Disco" and "Wes600RR" both work for CycleSector.com.
-"cozye" owns SuperbikeStore.net
-"lexusrx" owns SuperbikeSupply.com

All of them are GREAT guys to do business with- very knowledgeable, helpful and responsive.

You can also go here for quick access to these guys and more: http://www.600rr.net/vb/forumdisplay.php?f=12

I would definitely recommend buying through U.S. merchants. Our economy has been slow lately and the U.S. dollar is weak at the moment- better value for your money with U.S. businesses than with AU businesses. Hope that helps.

Im in Aus too, Tas as well which makes it worse! And yeah stick to the US or even the UK mate, everythings way to expensive in Aus, take Pazzo's for example $350 in Aus or $180 delivered from overseas!

I have a few Aus sites in my favourites at home if you want me to dig them out? But especially with our $$$ being pretty good at the moment if I were you i'd stick with the overseas market...

Cheers.

I cant say much for Aussie places to purchase AM parts but I will say that MRI (ridersinc.com) is fantastic as well as cycle sector. Andrew at MRI will hook you up and there are several guys from cycle sector here as you already know. happy shopping!!

Thanks guys, the more I look on these sites, the more money I think I need... truly an addiction.

Nevertheless, a couple of newb questions for you:
ANSWERED! Does the woodcraft frame slider require cutting of the fairing on an 07/08 CBR? How would you compare this to the R&G frame sliders in terms of protection? I like that the woodcraft frame sliders don't appear to be as prominent as the R&G. Also save $$!
http://www.woodcraft-cfm.com/Scripts/prodList.asp?idCategory=12746
http://www.motomummy.com/store/product.php?productid=16358&cat=0&page=1

I'll leave this up to availability - Again, I like the understated look of the Demented fork sliders, same question I suppose - compared to say R&G sliders, do the stick out far enough? (Demented is 0.75" protrusion, can anyone get a measurement for the R&G?)
http://dementedproducts.webs.com/products.htm
http://www.rg-racing.com/browseBike/Honda/CBR600RR/2007/FP0061BK.aspx

ANSWERED! - Is a cotton reel/spool protector (for example, the thicker of the woodcraft selection) sufficient? If my concern is protection of the bike frame, will this negate the need for frame sliders? Or do I need both?
http://www.woodcraft-cfm.com/Scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=17794

ANSWERED! Picks up swingarm- And this woodcraft stand, having not owned a stand before, does this item pick up the frame rather than the cotton reels/spools?
http://www.woodcraft-cfm.com/Scripts/prodView.asp?idproduct=17418

I realise some of the above questions may be a bit pedantic, but for my own piece of mind I must ask!
Cheers.

I'd recommend cyclesector as well. I am currently dealing with wes600rr (Scott) which has been very helpful and honest. They have a nice sale on an R&G crash kit which should take care of all your crashing worries. A bit pricey but i've heard they are the best quality you can get regarding sliders and frame protection.

I can only take a chance and answer your third question and say that the cotton reel/spool protector is not sufficient from i've heard. They tend to shatter on severe impacts rather than grind away.

Best of luck with your choices!
