It's a BMW dealer selling, which is interesting. Clearing out the stock room, or maybe changing marque?

A little birdie told me they'll probably accept an offer around £500.

...and despite a veritable rush on these items, there are still some for sale.

Beat the heat, grab one now. When they're gone there may not be any more.

Well, there is the angle of 10 years parts availability that the EU requires (I don't have a link to prove that though), and I wouldn't think that covers price control. BMW can charge whatever they like. Oh hang on, they already do.

Having one spare in the garage does control the price, and it's probably still got reasonable value in, say, 5 years time. But like all 'investments' it does tie up your dosh somewhat.

...and in the meantime, the 'dosh' is doing what in the bank?

Oh yeah! In five years' time it will be worth £500:04p

And, in five years' time, if anyone is still riding a K, then YOU control the price, assuming BMW are not giving them away...

Managed to get one for my K1200 R Sport for £485. I will get it fitted at my next service (valves etc) and clean up the original and keep it as a spare.

Different part number for the R and R Sport but the dealer had two left, only one left now for any R or R Sport owners.
