    parts supplier in Europe

    Hi,
    I have a question for the Euro members please.
    I have been dealing with Wemoto in England for about 20 years, they are the most helpful company you could ask for and the parts they stock are unbelieveable..... But I can not deal with the recent hike in import duty, vat on top of vat, vat on a delivery charge, parts mellowing in Irish customs lockup for a week at least , demands that if I don't pay duty before tomorrow, the parts will be sent back etc. None of these faults are that of Wemoto.
    Anyway, I have dealt with Louis.de and CSMNL.com, both great companies but neither do the range of items that Wemoto do. I am talking about stuff like a carburettor rebuilt kit, wheel bearing kit for old bikes etc etc. ( not just filters and brake pads)
    Can anyone point me in the direction of a Euro company that will supply all rebuild/service parts for all motorcycles please.

    Many thanks
    Tom

    Wemoto have stores in Europe as well:

    http://www.wemoto.fr/

    There's also one in Spain but I don't think they export (French one does).

    Thank you.
    Wemoto have a .ie (Ireland website) too but it still incurs the extra duties on delivery. I assume it is still delivered from the UK.

    We get the same problem here. I saw a horn button protector on eBay, and you can imagine that's not very large.



    It costs €15.54, which is expensive enough, but shipping from Ireland to the UK is an additional €25.20.

    Ridiculous.
