They wanted over double that at my local BMW dealers (Canada)

So, obviously screw that noise, right? Internet here I come!

Motorworks UK, awesome, right around $425.00 give or take.

Wait, what? You refuse to ship to North America? Huh?!

WTF, you won't even accept orders form Visa cards issued to someone in North America?


MaxBMW, at least they're in the US. $435.00 American. Not bad.

Argh, plus $$$ shipping to "International".

Argh, plus obscene UPS Brokerage fees!

Ack, Border customs charges!

Sigh, Provincial and Federal 12% taxes.

$400.00 bucks? Ya, not so much.

And that's IF the belt doesn't break, wear out prematurely or get stuffed up when the rear axle/bearing goes AWOL, or the front pulley chews it's way through the front plastic cover, and goes fucking off down the road when you're out in the middle of nowhere.
A chain is looking better and better by the minute..!

Just get the F800R!
