Is there a motorcycle salvage/breaker in Wiltshire that anyone knows of? Ive tried a few sites on the net but found them deleted. My son is looking for a 2nd hand battery and horn for his Kawasaki ER5.

Dave I donít think buying a battery second hand is a particularly good idea. I would use bike treads for the Battery as you live in Swindon (I dare say they will supply you with a horn as well (no pun intended ;D)).

I may have an old horn in the workshop I'll check - not off a kwak so something decent will be on it lol

Dunno if it works (if I can find one) but nothing lost if it don't bar a minute fitting it

As for battery buy a new one there not too much about £30-35
