Cheap upper and lower front fork balljoints for the UK/EU

I just ordered both ball joints, for £98, including delivery (for the pair). BMW dealer wanted £107 each.
From this place: https://www.motorradteile-service.de

Signing up was a little awkward with the google chrome translations. It wanted my house/street number back to front ("My Street 5" instead of "5 My Street").

Ace!

This is a hell of a bargain. I have book marked it for my next set. I double checked part numbers and both the K12S,R and the K13S have the same numbers. Also the boot is different but there is a boot on the less expensive one. So a pair for less than the price of one from BMW. I don't do German language so the site is slow to move around for me. I have to translate everything on my phone. (Google translate has a nifty thing you just hold the phone camera so it can see the text and in a second it to English on the phone screen, drives me nuts with envy and I took a year of German in College. )

Some really good prices and "Ersatzteile" (replacement parts) there!

A possible problem is that it appears you cannot pay with credit card. They seek to require you Konto number (a sort-of German checking account).

I used PayPal.

If you don't have a PayPal account, you can still choose PayPal, but "do not register for paypal account, just use my credit card", that's how paypal works. They then just act as payment processor for the company.

Use Google chrome and let it translate automatically.

They list both for the k1200 and the k1300. Whether it's the same part I don't know, but they list under both categories of bike anyway with same or similar price.

Fahrgestell >> Vorderradaufhängung/Gabel >> Telelever >> Kugelgelenk

Click on that for their website ...hopefully it's more direct to the front ball joints.

Google translated.

I have a set on the shelf. Do not buy the front wheel bearings, they are incorrect size.
