    Hi all. New to the site. Looking to purchase a M109. Have had my eye on a couple but haven't pulled the trigger on one yet.

    I have been busily looking, trying to find someone in Australia selling all the slick aftermarket gear I see bolted on these bikes but cant seem to find it.

    Where do I find all this stuff. Things like exhausts (I like the short radius Freedom pipes), TRE, oxy sensor deletes, lowering links, integrated rear lights etc.

    If you guys could help out, that would be great.

    Hi Aj, your choices locally are very limited. Most are purchased form overseas.
    Have a look at MeanCycles as they are a supporter of the forum and also great to deal with.

    Other than that, it's ask Dr Google and/or Ebay..
    Most of what you want will need to be imported and look out for added taxes/gst now on all imported goods..

    As per what Hulk said above, look for something that has a good base of what you need. Get one with an exhaust already as that's the biggest expense.
    The rest of the stuff is easier to get.

    I still got a Healtech xTRE for sale if you are keen.. This is the one that keeps the gear indicator working... Some of the others don't and you lose the indicator..

    Ohh, and welcome, the 109's are great bikes...

    Hi BarKerKTM
    That would be good. Does that fit all year models to current?

    Is it new and/or come with install instructions?

    And how much would you like for it?

    Thanks heaps

    What’s the best way to get in touch with you mate? Looks as though we may be locals as I noticed your info says your from Newcastle?
    Might be easier to sort out with a call or email if possible?

    Thanks
