Post Odering from India Reply with quote
Hello I haven't been here for a while but I wanted to try and get some opinions on ordering parts from India. I just pulled my rear hub off and I need a new one. I found one on Bulletwala
http://bulletwala.com/wheels-bearings.html
for about $52
and another at G.S. Spares
http://www.gsspares.com/product-details.asp?sku1=WBS0001a&productname=BAJAJ-CHETAK-REAR-HUB-4-STROKE
for about $42
Does anyone have experience with either of these outfits? Both seem to be in Dehli.
Is there something better? I think even with shipping it should still cost about half of what they sell them for at ScooterWest.com
If you do how long does it usually take to get stuff from there?
Any ideas?
Thanx,
terry

I buy clothing and things a lot from India, here is a quote from a supplier I ordered from recently. Not sure if parts would be different, but wanted to pass this along anyway:

"These items ship directly from Vrindavan by India Post Registered Airmail. For most countries this takes 10-14 days to arrive. Occasionally there may be delays due to customs or other reasons and it can take a bit longer. Please allow at least two weeks for this package to arrive. Please note that as this is a registered parcel it may require a signature on delivery."

I've seen rear hubs for bajaj on ebay. Reasonably priced as I recall.

I've bought from Bulletwala before, no problems, it seems like it took almost a month to get my order. I've ordered from another company in India that uses UPS and I got my parts in a week. I think most of the parts Bulletwala and the other dealers in India sell are aftermarket parts. They are not genuine Bajaj parts and the quality is not quite as good. That's not to say they don't work, but the castings and finish of parts can be a little on the rough side.

I bought a rear hub from Bulletwala as well. Same experience as BZ—took a long time to ship, finish is slightly lower quality than genuine parts, and it works well enough that you wouldn't know the difference anyway.

Great option for the ever-elusive rear hub, IMO. I say go for it.

Just out of curiosity, how often does the rear hub go caput? I'm going to be in Nepal in October, and might be able to source parts from India while I am there...

Rear hubs aren't a "wear-and-tear" item, if treated properly they will never break. If you ride with a loose hub-nut, or loose lug nuts, you can damage it.

Yeah I get that, but I was told it's a common occurrence so if I have a chance to source parts while I am in Nepal, what should I stock up on?

I heard some complaints about lack of handset levers a while back. I haven't check about lens covers. I know the rear brake lens (stock) is not available in the states.
