Seriously. My local dealer is crazy on parts, and that's IF you can get their attention in the first place. They only want to sell sport bikes there.

Depending on the part or parts, I usually check the following:

Oneida Suzuki
Ron Ayers
MR Cycle
Chaparral
Dennis Kirk
Rocky Mountain ATV / Jake Wilson
American Motorcycle Tire

And sometimes these too:

PartShark
CheapCycleParts
Bike Bandit
SuzukiPartsNation.com
MotoSport.com
Partzilla.com


Usually after comparing prices plus shipping Ron Ayers has been coming out the cheapest (unless it's tires) but not always. Sometimes depends on the parts and sometimes the time of year or phase of the moon.



YMMV

I buy my OEM stuff online from Rocky Mountain ATV. The local shop I go to only orders parts when they reach a certain dollar amount, and even then they only order once a week, so if you need it fast, forget it. If RMATV has it in stock, I can get it in a couple days.

Me too. But I'm a frequent flier and have bought bikes there. Maybe not the same for the average Joe.

Parts usually arrive in two or three days. Maybe a week or more if from Japan, but most parts are local or from Toronto. Shop is on my way home from work, so no big deal to stop by and pick something up.

Non bike specific stuff like tires I tend to source online or from other shops. In Canada, Fortnine is a go-to for that kind of stuff.
