    Best place for parts?

    Managed to snap the head off a seized front mudguard bolt today and wondered where's the best place to get replacement parts from?

    I've heard Aprilia Yorkshire are a bit on the slow side but don't really know of anyone else. Don't mind if it's overseas as long as they are reliable and reasonably quick.

    Or failing that has anyone got a spare mudguard bolt

    Thanks Sharky,

    Had a look at the sites you listed but they don't seem to stock the smaller stuff like bolts etc. Looks like I'll have to try Aprilia Yorkshire/Ultimate Parts but seems they've moved to Nottingham as well as changing name

    Thanks Sprocker,

    Well it's listed on Aprilia Yorkshire as a 'Screw w/flange M5x16'

    I bought one from a hardware store but it didn't have the shoulder on it that fits the hole in the mudguard. It's holding but think I'll have to order a proper one.

    I'm currently using Speedaway (W. Midlands) - recommended by a local ex-Aprilia dealer: Riders of Bridgwater.

    So far, Speedaway have a good track record with me...

    Hey tantrum is it not worth trying a local breakers yard or even one further a field they all do postal services might be worth a bash

    Please Tantrum do yerself a favour mate and DON'T go down the Aprilia Yorkshire (ultimate parts) route. Call Rox at Motorcycle Maintenance in Leigh, one call and it will be sorted. I've had stuff on order from Ultimate parts since November last year with no joy, infact spoke to them today and their holding to blame for a package that has gone missing that they sent recorded delivery. Mate their truely

    Cheers Guys

    sprocker - Thanks for trying as you say it's a special type so I'll have to find a proper bolt.

    BRG - Funny you should suggest Speedaway as that's where my mille came from originally - it has their number on my plate and a 'Speedaway' sticker on the front of the fairing. You'd have thought I would have noticed before and given them a ring

    sharky - Good idea on trying a breakers I always look for stuff on ebay but never think to try a breakers.

    SPOOKY - I've emailed Rox to see if they can help. Not too far away from me as well

    Has anyone started a thread on here getting members to post a pic of themselves and their name so you get to know who's who? I've seen pics of Pumpkin so I suppose it'll all be downhill from there but it'd be nice to put names to faces etc.

    Thanks, Gray.
