Best source for OEM parts ?

Local dealership carries next to 0 V-Strom stock, so everything has to get ordered anyway, may as well do it myself and save a few $ who have you used and who does the best job ?

Second question, need to replace both front turn signals - since the stock ones are a bit week and cost $ 41 bucks, is there an alternate that is knwn to work well ?

Thanks

I have had good luck here, before I found RideNow. Ridenow is much closer to you so the shipping should be cheaper and quicker.

I think Oneida bumped their shipping/handling costs to the point where MSRP at your local dealer may be cheaper. That's IF you can find a dealer selling at MSRP - many are doing markups. If you've got multiple local dealers, call around and get their prices - you will be surprised at the variances.

I've ordered from Oneida. But I always feel sort of good about ordering it from my local dealer. Takes longer and is a bit more money, but at least I'm keeping my dollars local.

(Even though my local dealer doesn't deserve it!)
