    Hello
    I am looking for non $ BMW $ sources for the following items. I have a 2013 F800GT.
    Main Drive Belt
    Steering Dampner
    Oxygen Sensor
    Rear Disk
    Front Fork Seals, besides Race-tec
    If you bought from a non BMW source, how did the parts workout for you?

    Thanks John

    Wow...the only thing I've purchased has been the drive belt. I bought that just before prices dropped from Bob's BMW...and I've had it hanging on the wall in the garage for the last 26,000 miles. Haven't needed it. I'm up to 51,000 miles on the original belt.

    You really need a new steering dampner, oxygen sensor, etc?

    I'm willing to bet that the O2 sensor is your typical Bosch unit and should be pretty easy to find from any source. All Balls has a fork seal kit, though I'd get measurements and try to hunt down an SKF kit, preferably green. I've used both with good results, but SKF green seals have less stiction when new. SKF black seals are OE for most Euro bikes. A rear brake disc should be a simple google search. I used Bike Master and they worked really well. Same OE supplier that does many of the Japanese brakes when they aren't Brembo. No suggestion for a steering damper besides spend the money on a good one.

    Yes Chris, I do need the above items. I have 79,000 miles on my bike. One of my front forks is leaking, so is the steering dampner. Quite a few of the lugs on the belt are cracked on the base and it has 43,000 miles on it, … etc. I am not looking for busy work, I asked for help finding inexpensive part sources.

    I actually wouldn't have considered it "busy work", but some people change their belt at 24,000 miles. Few people have the miles on theirs, that you do. I wish you luck.

    Thanks for the suggestions rcb78, I will look into those.

    John, please update this thread with your results. I'm curious about the oxygen sensor. (Not now but in the future.) Your findings regarding the brake rotor probably will interest a few users as well.

    Thank you!

    For fork seals try a bearing supplier, you'll need to measure the seal or take the old ones with you. A Google search for one near to you should identify a few.

    They are however low cost items so don't expect to save a fortune.

    Just looked up more info on those Bike Master rotors I mentioned. The company making them is/was NG from Spain. Like I said, common OE supplier for many other brands, including my last Suzuki. They worked perfectly with a set of Galfer HH pads biting them. Not as cheap as some Ebay or Ali finds, but still half the price of the BMW rotors from Brembo (for GS at least).

    According to the parts catalougue the same steering damper is used on the R,S,ST as well as the GT, given the amount of low mileage bikes that get broken for spares I'd search for a second hand one myself.

    I have a used O2 sensor from a 2014 F800GS I will send you for the cost of postage only, I’m in Tucson, AZ. It came off a working bike but I have no good way to test it to guarantee it is working properly. I probably can test the heater element in it with an ohm meter but not the sensing element, at least not for accuracy. You could check a parts fiche on line to make sure they are the same part number.

    Regarding the Front Fork Seals leaking, maybe they are just dirty I read somewhere that if dirt gets on the stanchion it could get lodged under the seal and cause a leak. Do an internet search on the subject. There could be a cheap way to fix it.

    Steering Damper I bought this one from E-Bay and it's been perfect. It wasn't until Betsy was being serviced we saw the damper was fooked that was on her and not doing a thing. As you can see it's inexpensive and that's in AUD so cheaper again in USD. Also look on eBay for Fork Seals, new ones set me back $20 AUD so again cheaper in USD. Drive belt I will be going through BMW (Motoworks UK) for but thats because I'm a bit OCD and anal about making sure the parts I use on all my bikes are perfect.

    https://sealmate.net/ <- this has worked for me in the past, but if the seals are original then with nearly 80k miles I would replace them, if for no other reason than an excuse to change out the fork oil.

    Thanks Aeromechb2 for the generous offer, its greatly appreciated. But the GS and GT O2 sensors have different part numbers.
    Cheers

    I've used O2 sensors from Euromotoelectrics.com (Denver) as well as switches, stators, regulators, and fuel pumps. Very happy with them.

    Hers is the O2 sensor for the F800: https://www.euromotoelectrics.com/BM...-p/o2-n140.htm
