Used BMW parts, not USA

I am looking for BMW motorcycle parts salvage yards. Canada, Europe or Australian.
I want to find the fork panels for a K 1300R which were never sold in the US. Thanks for any help.

Did you try getting them from BMW via your local dealer? From what I recall, the plastics weren't insanely expensive.

'06 K1200R- in pieces
'73 Honda CB500F- slow but fun.
'77 Yamaha XS 750 triple- kinda

The pieces are not available to order from a US dealer. I checked a Canadian dealer and they are a little too rich for my blood...235.00 each

Ok I know I'm not helping but...

how about buying some of Bestem's plain weave carbon fiber stuff and painting it? I think they are just $150 for less.

Thanks for the responses, both are helpful. I checked out the Bestem carbon, that will work just fine! I also emailed motorworks and am waiting for a response. Nice source for other items too! Thanks again.
