Wanted : front brake disc for R80GS

Hi all,

I've bought a pair of wheels for my BMW R80GS (built 1992), but it does not include the brake disc. Anybody know where (Europe, UK) I can order and buy it? The original one costs about 370 euro.

Hey, i didn't mean to offend you, or
anybody for that matter. :-D
But really everybody on several Bulletin Boards in Belgium and Holland suggested only one and the same thing: ebay. :-) As if there are no other sources anymore. :-/
And I just happen to not like that internet-thing. It makes stuff way to expensive, and before you can buy or sell something they want to know you inside out, "for security matters", and I just don't like it. :-$

But , to be very clear, I really do appreciate your and the other's suggestion!

Well, there are certainly other sources, but lots of businesses include e-bay as a method of selling things. Even if you don't want to e-bay you can use it to find vendors. For example the link above leads to a website for a mail order BMW vendor, which you could ring up and order from (cutting out the dreaded e-bay).

Anyways, glad you got it sorted, which is the important thing.

Cheers

If you want a bigger disc than original these guys have a nice solution. Just mounted it on my R80GS 91mod.
