Need parts in Melbourne for 05 919!

I was given a shock earlier today when the local grease merchants told me I needed -

REMOVE REAR BRAKE PAD, FIT NEW BRAKE PADS & TEST BRAKES
REMOVE REAR WHEEL, FIT NEW REAR DISK ROTOR/LOCKTIGHT BOLTS, REINSTALL
REAR WHEEL
FIT NUMBER PLATE FLAP INC RED REFLECTOR
REMOVE FRONT FENDER AND RE-FIT
REMOVE HEATED GRIPS, CLEAN HANDLEBARS AND RE-GLUE IN A NON FOULING
POSITION

REMOVE MUFFLERS, CORRECT MOUNTING AND FIT BAFFLES FOR RWC

REAR BRAKE DISC
ROADWORTHY CERTIFICATE
NUMBER PLATE FLAP INC REFLECTOR
FRONT GUARD
MUFFLER BAFFLES

All up just shy of AU$1000.

I have started contacting wreckers for a rear rotor and fender.
The heated grips unit is on the bars with cable ties and I do not understand what they mean by fouled.
The crack in the front fender is not close to leading to anything falling off.
The rear rotor and pads, probably right on that score.
the number plate holder/bracket was repaired by them...and the whole bike was checked end to end inside out in late April, for a major service. None of the above issues were noted.

the response has been 5k done since, and that wasn't a road worthy test...it was me asking for a full service to make sure the bike was safe and mechanically sound.

I will get the bike back and see what i can do myself.

any idea where to get baffles for the danmoto cans from, a little cheaper than the $90 cost plus $110 to fit?
same with the rear rotor, which they are asking me $181 for.
Would this do?

or this even, from nearer by

any assistance is very much appreciated,

Cheers,

Daniel

the one nearer to you may be for the 1st gen cb900, I would ensure of fitment before buying. the one before that says it will fit the hornet, but I cannot speak to the quality

if you love your motorcycle, set it free.. if it comes back and hits you.. you highsided

For rear rotor I'd be inclined to go more OEM spec. Like this one.

I also prefer OEM brake pads. They are good. I get them from Partzilla.
