But the genuine Husaberg parts are a rip here in aust so i got my sister to bring lots back from when she goes to the U.S. saves me paying for anything

said with a perfect sense of timing!

Re: Dealers -- whats with these guys ?

I like to support the local guys as much as the next Aussie.

What I cant justify is $600 for a part here that I can get from the EU for $150. Learn the German word for your parts and it gets even cheaper on eBay Deutschland or Osterriech, although shipping can be a pain unless it's with DHL.

As for a new bike, I got my 08 FE450e for $9k less than a new one with just 282k's on it ($5600). The bargains are out there if you look and be patient.

Basically it comes down to dealers changing with the times and from what John is saying KTM Husaberg Australia arent ready to do that. Everything is available on the internet now and dealers need to be aware that unless they can compete online or instore they are going to lose sales to someone who is willing to cut the price and ship it to your door. Volumes, overheads, wages blah blah blah. It's not a new phenomena, join the 21st century.
