Depends on how they are shipping it.....maybe one of us could get it mailed less costly???

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

So I owe you a whole crate of beer for the seals then !

Or . . . I'll buy some goodies and spread the cost. Trouble is I can't make up my mind which goodies to buy.

Fancy some nice rearsets though.

Its ok Will, That one's on me. I got the whole kit for a song in the States and I didn't need the seal as mines new anyway so I just passed it on to you.
That's what sets us bikers apart..We look after each other.

Mines all done now' didya see the pics..I'm glad I did it too looking at the old design of impeller

Shipping cost calculation

Hi Guys, sorry I just noticed this thread.

Postage is an issue indeed. Our system calculates the cost based on weight and volume of the package and location of the client, but there is a minimum cost of 20€ for shipping to the UK.

Unfortunately we do not have the volume -yet- to get better conditions from UPS and we insist on insured and fully traceable shipping. However, we are not making a margin on the shipping and as soon as we get better conditions, we will not hesitate to pass them on to the clients!

regards
Andre

Yes joe this was an issue to me also when i ordered some small bits from Andre.
So since i was going to pay so much for the small bits i added a set of swingarm pivot plates and i ended up.... spending more money.

Thanks Andre,, I understand that you aren't making profit out of the postage.
It's your business but if I were you I think I'd have alook at that situation .
