Body Parts Needed

Sorry if this is the wrong place but I thought it bordered on the maintenance area. While crusing some rustic roads yesterday my bike got tired and decided to lay down while in the middle of a gravel filled corner. Now I need to replace the majority of body panels on the right side of the bike. Besides mrcycles.com can anyone suggest other places on-line that I can easily view and order replacement parts. I checked e-bay but more often than not that just feels like a waste of time.

Check Bikebandit.

Never heard of mrcycles.com, do they have decent prices?

Here is one place to look

and here is another

I've used both and have had good experiences with both.

So what is it, am I a smart*** or a dumb***? Maybe I'm just an ***hole.

Thanks for the suggestions. So far it looks like mrcycles is still a bit cheaper than the rest. To those of you PM'ing me with part offers thanks. FYI I've got an '04 1000.

Mrcycles.com is a good outfit. I get all my parts diagrams from them as well as some parts. I need a new left knee and left shoulder they don't list though.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

A reply on a similar thread I started a couple of months ago made me a big fan of body parts....

Because I take every word posted on this site as gospel and wanted to research the possible link between BG's suggested body parts and Greywolf's hyperlink I clicked on it... I failed the test.
