A quick introduction
on: November 28, 2016, 07:13:28 PM
Hi,
About 10 years ago I started stripping the occasional bike for spares and buying the odd job lot. Initially it was mostly about keeping my own bikes on the road and over the years it has grown into a nice sideline to the day job. Originally my interest was in Ducatis, hence my ebay seller name (ducatiparts.110mb), but over the years my interest has moved through Triumph and to the BMWs.

Amongst my current products I have a set of light mounts for the S1000R and S1000XR engine. They bolt to the engine side cases and are designed for BMW's own auxiliary LED headlights to bolt straight on.

I’ve also been writing Service Manuals for several years, and have one for the XR due to launch very soon. Please check out my website www.marksmotorcycleparts.co.uk

Thanks, Mark.

On the S1000R forum I've been asked about discounts, so to keep everything equal I'll repeat my answer here....

People who've been following me on the Triumph Tiger forums will know that I've dropped the price of the books from £25 to £18 across the board, so I can't offer a further discount on those, but I can offer a 10% saving on the first five pairs of light brackets sold through the S1000R and S1000XR forums.

I'm also happy to discuss group buys, for more than 10 of any one item.

Hi Mark,
I've purchased your XR service manual and just want to thank you for producing it. The text is clear and the photos are super helpful. Well done, Sir. Just did my fuel pump, and though you don't detail that in particular, I needed your help to get to the darn thing through all the plastic and tank removal.

Thank you for the postitive feedback.

I do sometimes get asked if I'm still producing the book and what models it covers. It covers all of the Mk1 bikes up to 2019, but not the revised bikes with the different fairing from 2020 onwards.

You can see some sample pages and buy from my website, https://www.marksmotorcycleparts.co.uk/service-manuals

Thanks, Mark

Sorry mate, I can't. The light brackets didn't sell at all well so I've not had any more batches made after the first ones sold.
Thanks for asking, Mark
