Motorcycle Salvage yards?

Anyone know of a good place for motorcycle salvage parts? I am trying to find out if some parts are better sourced myself instead of going through insurance which will increase my rates. For cars it is easy, I go to www.car-part.com and just search salvage yards. I am looking for a few bits that got bent when my bike slid into a curb after a 15mph lowside...stupid oil.

Thanks.

RB, I have bought a lot of used parts over the years from Cycle Therapy in N. Akron Ohio.

http://www.cycletherapy.com/

They know their inventory well and can usually tell you immediately if they have what you want or not.

Good luck!

Salvage Yards

Red Bean,
Yesterday when i first looked, i searched Google for motorcycle salvage yards. I then simply called Tri County as one of the listings, where he gave me another place to call. The place i called is Johnson & Wood near Beverly Hills. He is the guy that placed the nationwide search to all the salvage yards around the country. Johnson & Woods # is 818 508 5227.

swingarm

RedBean,
Right now on ebay is an 04 Dl650 rear swingarm for $35 bid. Manuel motors in Ohio phone # is 330 634 9800. I hope you can get it.

There is also an 05 swingarm on there on page 5 for $98.

Thanks for the help guys. I saw the swingarm on eBay, but the 07 was the first year they changed the swingarm to make it longer and it is now black too (no big deal it could be painted...). Different geometry makes me want to stay with an 07-09 swingarm.

Yeah rear swingarm, and the subframe bar that the passenger pegs mount to are what I need. Left side only (passenger pegs and rear subframe piece). Those are the parts that hit the curb. My givi mounts are toast too, but I will deal with that later.
