As Art says it pays to shop around.

You could always buy blind, and have it delivered straight to you.

Here's another one for you to consider. Compare this to your Foley one. Chalk & cheese.

As for this shop, this one is a recommendation. One of my bikes came from here. Reserve it with a deposit.
The guys are absolutely spot on.  :028:

Ask if its had its stator replaced on that one though, if interested. The advert says 20276 miles which is about the mileage they tend to fail on the MK1.

Ask by all means and fit a new one if you feel the desire, but I don't think that an arbitrary figure of about 20k is true for all. There are plenty of owners with much higher mileage than 20k on the original stator. I seem to recall Rev Ken on the forum (are you there Rev?) had 40k on the original stator a few years back. Interesting to see if this is stator is still around now.  :084:

Lets not forget a replacement stator costs less than a rear tyre and I've heard tell of seven year olds fitting them by the road side with the under seat tool kit!

Wow thanks for all the advice Fellas, more info and comparisons than Compare the Meerkat.com Think I'll leave the Foleys bike and look around, I'm in no great rush at the moment and as we're supposed to be staying in anyway! Obviously once I get one sorted I'll post some pictures as it would be rude not too! Ooo anyone interested in a TDM 08 plate! No issues just fancying a change as I've had it 9 years.
