update !!

after extensive searching i ordered my new spark plug caps
from Japan.

In europe one cap costs from 55 to 65 euros

I got all 4 caps for 80 euros
genuine honda

i used a forwarder service from Japan as the site did not accept foreign adresses

The site i order the caps is

https://www.monotaro.com

the caps code is  30700MFAD01

and the forwarder used is https://www.tenso.com/en/

thats 140€  saved for a biking weekend.

it wasn't easy but made good use of google translate .

There is also a good guide in the forwarders site with details on how to order and some tips.
