Probably just as well at those prices. Not sure what's going on with sherlocks but they were pretty reasonable last time I bought parts from them.

I wonder how Motobins can ship to North America so easily and Sherlocks as well as Moto Works can't.I believe Moto Works claimed it was an insurance problem.Seems to me they are cutting themselves out of a massive market place .

I think Anton has them, but he's in the States. It would be cheaper if you could find them on your side of the world. Specify you want the Kaiser gear.

Check -siebenrock,
motoren-israel.com
bmwboxersupplies.com (looks like the Kaiser due to the case hardened look in photo)
http://www.boxxerparts.de (probably not Kaiser, look at gear picts and compare to boxersupplies picts)

Kaiser Gears, notice case hardened look..

1st



Kaiser Copies

I don't think it is such a big Market to be honest. I'm sure if it was a lucrative Market then the suppliers would be falling over themselves. Motobins are little more than a small shed in little farming village in the back of beyond, if they were selling so much to the states they'd at least have a fresh coat of paint on the door.

They're good for stock BMW stuff, but not necessarily aftermarket bits. I ordered some stainless pushrod tubes from them many years ago. The outer diameter of the tubes was waaaay too small. When I complained, Motobins told me that I should goop a bunch of silicone sealant on the tubes before installing them. No thanks. Return shipping would have eaten up any refund, so they are still hanging on my garage wall as a reminder of the negative side to buying parts internationally.

You might be surprised Rob, insurance can be a problem, and Motobins might get a coat of paint now!

They must be for an earlier model - the pushrod tube diameter changed over the years.

Thanks for the tip Excuvator! I've always wondered where the rest of their stuff was.

That's not a Motbins part, that is a Siebenrock part. I can tell by the part number on the bag. I have problems in the past with Motobins standing behind there parts.
