Mainly it´s about parts for tuning from ebay like crank-/cam shaft, exhaust can, ...
Want to upgrade my 99 R1 racebike to stay competitive with the 04 models.
Some would ship to Germany but the problem is none
can give a total price incl. shipping and I dont want to get "surprised" by horible shipping costs.
So may be you´ve got a price example for shipping a crankshaft (weight of R1 crankshaft is 8,5 Kilo´s).

10 pounds should take
2-3 days = $89.00 plus insurance
3-5 days = $54.00 plus insurance
4-10 days = $37.25 plus insurance

Those prices are in USD

$120.00 is high for an undertail too unless it is same day shipping!
