Spare parts for ST1300 here in Aus
« on: July 24, 2013, 04:56:45 PM »
I've recently used this mob and they were quite responsive and their website had teh breakdown pics to make it easier to find the part number I wanted.

I ordered a new LH Mirror Cowl, Mirror Cowl Spring, LH front indicator, RH roll-over bar cover complete and an assortment of tupperware clips.  All delivered in just over a week.  Prices all very reasonable.

I've used them too via the Internet and telephone and they were great. However I called in to see them on the way home from Middleton and they were less than helpful.

Maybe some people can only communicate over the phone or Internet.  :CB--

The whole buy on the internet is a real quandary. I like to know there is a local Honda dealer to shop at but some of Mr Honda's prices are hard to accept.

I have just used Blue city motorcycles & will not be using them again.
Purchased radiator hoses & what i thought was a 4 pack of hose clamps.
Turns out it was $13 for 1 clamp , not 4.
I will return to my local STealership for parts as a temporary fix until i can find somewhere else.
A quick visit to supercheap should get me the extra clamps for a few $$$.

I need to replace the right hand lower cowl on my 2008 ST1300A (damage caused by a minor "off" on a sandy track at the back of Halls Creek). This is a relatively minor bit of plastic in a generic grey colour so you can imagine my reaction when Hawesbury Honda quoted me $475 for a replacement!!! Blue City seem to be quoting $411 for the same bit (plus transport I guess) so still a pretty big slug for a nondescript bit of plastic. Anyone had any experience at getting fairing bits from O/S sources?

If it's a part common part to all years then you should be able to get it here as they cover up to 2003 model ST1300s

If you can find the part number you need that would make it easier.

I got my parts from there when I did my timing belt and cooling system and even with postage it was still cheaper than local.

Just a matter of camparing prices inc postage seeing which is best for you.

A couple more to look at

I just ordered the Cowl from MRCycles in the US @ A$260 delivered to Oz. A bit better than the $411 plus delivery from Blue City. Probably a bit of a gamble but worth a try. I will let you know how I go.
Thanks for the help

Arrived today no problems - Exactly the same part ex-Japan if sourced from Australia but comes via USA for $200 less than the local supply. Makes you wonder!. Thanks for the tip Alan.

I've just purchased a Sargent seat set from "csg", but haven't picked it up yet.  Give us a bit of time to test it on some long hauls, and if the new seat suits us, my old OEM seat may come up for sale.   Stay Tuned!

I would not recommend Bluecity Motorcycles. I ordered a small fuel pipe from them paid for it, and waited for it to arrive for 6 weeks. I received an email telling me that it was on its way a month ago. I emailed them a week ago to see if they could shed any light on why I didn't receive it. They haven't bothered to reply. I have re-ordered it from another dealer. Luckily it was only a $10 part. :blu13left

I use them as a guide for local prices only........for the price of one item buying from your local dealer might be about the same as say a US item with postage added.........

I ordered two (bar) weight ends and two socket bolts on the 27th of September.

I received my parts from Blue City Motorcycles only last week.
Partly their fault - partly Aus Post.
After two weeks of nothing (they were quick on the uptake to begin with - I wrote and asked where my order was only to be told they were waiting on the socket bolts; (they could have emailed me to say they were temporarily out of stock) - after another week and several phone calls, I finally got a call from their manager who said the order would be shipped on the 7th, which is where Aus Post fell down on the job
They took 14 days to get the parcel to me.

A happier camper now, but wary of who I deal with from now on though, and certainly not likely to recommend this mob.

I would imagine with reports like these, and there'd have to be other sites with similar reports, Blue City might be in line to get either a new manager or else call it a day

On the 26th October I posted on this site that I would not recommend Bluecity Motorcycles, after waiting 6 weeks for a part I had ordered. They sent me an email in early October telling me that the part had been posted. I never received the part.
Well, another one arrived today by express post along with a complimentary Honda coffee mug posted on 30th October.  I can only assume they saw my posting on Ozstoc and have done the right thing and replaced my order along with the mug.
Thank you, Blue City Motorcycles.

Now if all the Honda dealers checked in here once a week they'd learn a lot about the way owners think which might help them improve their business.
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
