My mates have bought from Fast Eddy for their accessories, and when I asked the same question of where to buy from without the HIGH price, they all suggested FastEddy. The Aussie dollar is going well and you can get some pretty good savings from them.
I totally agree with you regarding the prices in Oz being high. One word... Taxes!! Unfortunately, it isn't really the dealers fault, they have to make money aswell, but they also don't work on a lot of margin with pricing. Strike a deal with your local bike dealer to see about purchasing the product from them and have them install the item on your bike for nothing. I recently did that with a few items on my bike, and I think it was a win/win for both of us. Not to mention it being done properly be qualified guys in a short amount of time, other then me doing it and screwing it up!!
Hope this helps, and enjoy the ride.
