The £100 on the configurator is for factory fit at the point of order. As stated in my post £235 was quoted for retrofit.

You ask if that's over the top for a dealer to remove all the old sh#t  and put on the wonder gear but appear to have overlooked the additional unspecified labour fitting charge that goes with it.  :430:

OK but cant believe that it actually costs an additional £100 for the cost of an M chain, or £200 for the M battery. Usual rip off  :305:

What ever happened too the days when people actually got off their backsides and did it themselves, or perhaps might BM throw in blowing the tyres up on the warranty.....

Well said that man....
Spot on! The chains they use rust the side plates at a hint or rain. They appear to be the cheapest crap available.

Well then if the new M chains dont rust that will be worth the cost  :305:

Yes, good video!  I could see this coming, chains keep getting better, and I was wondering when (and how) they would be equivalent to a shaft.  Maybe this is it.
