Thank you for your help...

Thank you for the help guys. My local dealer is a stealer so I went to the net.

Right side upper cowling:

Dealer: $196.00

PartsPitStop.com: $150.00

Thanks again for the help.

Sorry I didn't mean to sound sarcastic. I've got a dealer (Suzuki only) across the street from work literally 50 ft. away from my desk. He's great as it's a new dealer. He'll match almost any price for gear - jackets, pants, etc.. He will order anything in their catalogs (Tucker-Rocky and others) and match legitimate internet prices. I know a lot of the dealers that have been around a long time won't do this but for me it works. For OE parts it might be different.

It's not fair to expect a dealer to match the lowest price on the 'net. They have overhead. If they've been good to me, I'll spend the extra bucks as long as they are not charging more than the highest price I find online -- that is a "stealer", in my humble opinion.

That said, I've had good luck with bikebandit.com.

They always deliver. Don't order from BikeBandit. They will fcuk your order up and then take forever to refund your money.
