There are lots of them on the market: Indian made, EU made and Chinese ones.
I have some questions please, for those who're using them:
Are there any Ground clearance problem? I understand that they are "deeper" or higher than the original ones?
What brand is recommended?
Thanks.

Cost of postage

Did you find the cost of postage was very high from Klassic Cycle Stuff?

Klassic Cycle

Plus one on this seller. I've bought several things from him and have always been satisfied. His prices are competitive and I don't think his shipping rates are out of line. If you communicate with him he will combine shipping of multiple items

Jon thanks for the heads up

Jon

I know that parts I get from Europe seem to have a reasonable postage cost - where as at face value Mr Klassic seems pretty stiff - You know $30 postage for a $3 part. Now of course I take your point that by talking to him, these matters could well be resolved - though postage from Us to the outer galaxy does seem to be more expensive than from the out galaxy to the US.

Anyway, he has some good bits - and I will keep tabs on what he is offering.
