You need to cop The shipping from the US to get what you want.

I have just bought a 2002 VN 800 Classic a few days ago and have got a few things over the net already at a fraction of the cost here.

you are caught between a rock and a hard place!

It would be nice just to pop out and buy the stuff you want with a bit of choice thrown in but the truth is anything you buy from OZ will cost more than from the US even after shipping charges.

Good luck

^^ What he said Villin ... Just check the postage costs before committing. any of the reputable sellers will give you a quick reply to e mails .. or stay up late and call m on the phone ..

In aus try Z power .. a few of the larger dealers may stock some of the non bike specific stuff like mirrors pegs grips etc ..

Have fun with it mate .. they are a great bike

Sorry to reply so long after you posted but I thought a lot of new owners may benefit from this post

Sorry to say there aren't any, the dealers who want to do the right thing are held back by the importers. Eg I went to a good Kawasaki dealer for the chrome engine side plate $69 U.S. all day any day postage depends on who you buy from but normally between $25 - $45 U.S. He rang Kawasaki Australia while I was there they said no problems I would have it in 2 weeks or so. Australian Price? Well they just doubled the U.S. PRICE AND ADDED $29.00 aud for postage. Rear speakers for the Voyager $660 aud. U.S. $247 - $330 Thieving bastards.

Needless to say I have not bought anything from Australian Suppliers they can get stuffed. I now get everything from the U.S. I have saved hundreds

Go to the Vulcan 1700 thread in this forum and you will find all the U.S. dealers you want under the lead thread "accessories"

On another more positive note Harley Australia has just significantly reduced prices to close to U.S. prices so for some parts that may fit, so try them first I just bought a chrome luggage rack for $10 more then U.S.

Got a quote for shipping from Bad Penny Customs which was ridiculous. Think they are in W.A. and I wanted the product shipped to Sydney, they quote more than double the shipping price from US to Sydney. Plus the parts were way more expensive. Good way to not get customers. Needless to say I bought from US. Meancycles were good and I would recommend.

Thumbs up Aussie afterrmarket

Hi all
Notice some are looking for "local" Kawasaki aftermarket parts.

Check out Google for "Z-Power," a company set up in Wollongong which posts out parts at a reasonable price but beware that some parts are on the dear side..Have had good service from them in the past
Good Luck
Scotty
