Best online OEM retailer?

Okay, so I've sold my FZ and I'll be picking up a new '06 red 1000 pretty soon, probably next weekend. I need to add a couple OEM accessories immediately, mainly the centerstand and probably the heated grips. What's a good online dealer to buy these from?

I have found for OEM parts you can't beat the prices from Oneida Suzuki. Here is the link http://www.oneidasuzuki.com/store/home.php I have ordered from them and they ship right away. You can also try Ride now http://www.ridenowonline.com/default.aspx THey have good prices also. Also Parts Depot has good prices and sell OEM and aftermarket. http://www.partsdepotstore.com/default.asp

Here is a very nice OEM dealer.

http://www.inlandmarinecycle.com/

He always gives me 20% off cost. Oneida can't touch his prices. Talk to Wayne. I just got my centerstand from him for $142 OTD

Hold on there cowboy. Don't pull the trigger on the OEM heated grips just yet. There are better after market grip heaters that the Zuki ones, and for a fraction of the cost. I just installed the Symtech grip heaters and couldn't be happier. And those were about $30. Ask around, Symtech, dual star, etc. are much more popular than the OEM heaters.

+1 for Oneida. All their OEM stuff was the lowest I saw and they were quick in processing and shipping. Got Zuk centerstand from them.

Okay thanks, I'll look around. I definitely need the center stand though, my garage won't fit the cars and bike unless the bike's on the center stand

oneida, me too.

have ordered from ronayers.com a few times and also totally satisfied. oneida tends to be slightly less expensive though.

By better, do you mean more than lower-priced?

Which Symtech kit did you use? I'd like to try the kit that includes the grips, vs just heating elements you add under existing grips. Anyone have input into how the grips are? Too hard, soft, thick, etc...?
