    If you think Audi parts are dear !!!!

    Had the front end off the Streetfighter as the fork seals were leaking due to the winter. Anyway i noticed that i may get this season out of the front pads but thought i,d better ring Ducati parts dept for a price

    "Yes, they are £87 a set"

    Thats not bad then.

    "A set is one side, you need 2 sets"

    FFS £174 for 4 pads........

    Thats bikes for you Blackie. Ducati seem to be a bit more expensive than the others.

    Had to get a new EGR valve for my Mondeo ST TDCI recently-Ford wanted £250,did a bit of browsing and got one from a Jag dealer for £120 plus delivery(the X-type runs the same 2.2diesel engine)and a mechanic friend fitted it and cleared the diagnostics for 30 quid.

    What gets me is the price of the tyres. I ordered a rear Pirelli supercorsa sp tyre for my sons Triumph Daytona 675. £156. He only gets 3000 miles out of it.
