Guys I have used Babbits before and they are in my state that I live in. I also use Nelsons speed shop here in Michigan as well as a few local dealers.

Here's a link to Nelsons speed shop. They are god guys to order from as well but I have no clue on international shipping with them??? Al

Found Babbits to be good but the postage costs more than the parts. It was $130 to Australia! Someones making a lot of money just out of sending a parcel of only afew grams and less mass than a DVD.

Best to get a forum buddy stateside like I did recently....cost me $9.95 plus a couple of dollars for the first lot of postage to my friend.

Time taken will work out the same, my friend had it in 24 hours.

Cheers,
Chris.

A big thank you for that edgarrison, I'd be very happy to throw a few extra bucks your way for you time and effort if I need parts again. :)

They're good for parts but here in USA, you could order a single gasket and maybe a bolt or two and they'll charge $20 for shipping. Then you'll see how they get their money because I'll receive the gasket on one day in a big oversized box. Way bigger than it should be. Then on a different day I'll receive the other small item in another large box. First problem us the over-priced boxes. The second is not combining the two orders in one small package. Bottom line is they make their money on shipping. I won't order from them unless I'm getting a lot of items.

Then they'll put them all in one box and charge about the same amount as one or two small items.
