    Ricoh same as Kyocera parts?

    Even though I am a Ricoh Tech I do have a few kyoceras out in the field. I fitted some little feed tyres to a Kyocera FS1370dn printer (I think it was that model anyway). Fairly easy only takes 5 minutes to do all 3.
    One of my colleagues has asked me to order some feed tyres for a Ricoh MP 501... I just looked at the parts manual and it looks suspiciously like a Kyocera and it even calls one of the parts 'Retard roller' which is what kyocera always calls that part. Are they the same? 3 feed tyres from ricoh is about 35 but if they are the same as kyocera ones I can get them for about 10. Anyone know if there is a guide where you can compare parts from different brands as this Ricoh must be made by the same people who make those Kyocera printers?
    Thanks

    Do you know if Kyocera also sell this model and what model it is?
    They will be using the same feed tyres but ricohs will be far more expensive

    Thanks for that
    One of the only models I can't get parts for, typical.
    How did you know that was the same model, did you read it somewhere or just general knowledge?

    Do you know what I just found a massive guide of all kinds of brands that use each others parts and models etc and Just found these parts through kyocera and just as I thought only a third of the price. Win.

    Most likely Kyocera rebrands it's printer for Ricoh as Kyocera printers continue to struggle for market share
