Re: OEM Parts Resources

Some places where I've had pretty good success:

http://www.oldbikebarn.com/ - Japanese & most European bikes. Very good prices. Kinda slow about getting packages into the mail. Nice people, though.

http://www.motorcycleonlinestore.com/ - Most brands. Prices are good. Very helpful when you call.

http://batescycle.com/ - I've had good success getting used parts for my very old Honda.

Re: OEM Parts Resources

I went into TJ's in Austin the other day and was shocked to see they still used microfiche.

Re: OEM Parts Resources

Well you gotta admit - probably nobody's ever told you they couldn't look a part for you because the microfiche is down.

Re: OEM Parts Resources

In the market for some OEM parts myself, so I was pleased to find this thread as I could not recall the name of the supplier I last used. After reading the posts I'm pretty sure it was CyclePartsNation.

However, I also seem to recall I took my "list" from the on-line guys down to Wild West Kawasaki here in Katy and they matched OR beat the price of everything I was looking for.

Re: OEM Parts Resources

I use Powersports Plus for all my OEM restoration parts. They have all the online microfiche like everyone. Shipping is like 2 bucks on any order under 10 dollars and 6 dollars on any order over that. They sell Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha and Suzuki OEM parts.

Re: OEM Parts Resources

For Honda OEM I've used Western Honda, Service Honda, and Honda of East Toledo. All 3 have great prices, but usually one will beat the other two. Problem is, they aren't consistent (SH may be cheaper on one part and Western cheaper on another) so I usually check all 3. Honda Parts Direct is a good source also, but you have to pay tax here in Texas on top of shipping.

Western Honda: http://www.westernhonda.com/fiche_select.asp

Service Honda: http://www.servicehonda.com/parts.html

Honda of East Toledo: http://www.hondaeasttoledo.net/OEMpartfinder.htm

Ron Ayers (Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, Yamaha)

MR Cycle (Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, Yamaha)

D&S Cycle (Honda, Kawasaki)

...others...

Note: You don't see real micro-fiche (pronounced "fish") much anymore but they used to be page-sized transparent images that were used mainly by auto-parts houses and dealers for locating model-year parts. Each "fiche" contained hundreds of pages of small images that had to be magnified to view. There was a "micro-fiche" viewer that allowed you to index (row-column) the proper page and view it. This is all done electronically now. Microform

That's a start...
On the BMW side I have had excellent service through A & S Motorcycle Parts,Inc. or just A&S Cycle(BMW) out in Roseville,Ca. Great parts fiche access and quick reliable service.

Re: OEM Parts Resources

I use Rocky Mountain a lot. www.http://rockymountainatvmc.com/

For Ducati parts, I used to use Ducati Omaha to look up parts. I never actually bought from them though as the shipping ate up most if not all of the shipping. www.ducatiomaha.com/

I use Western Honda a lot, also partzilla.com. Both offer low prices on Honda oem, partzilla has better prices on shipping but it takes them about 5-7 days to process the order before shipping.
I would like to give my local Honda dealer in Houston, Bob Lunsford Honda my business but they charge retail plus 10%~20% and rarely stock the parts.
Online oem shopping is how I buy my Honda parts and when using Western Honda I probably suffer no more than a 2 day delay and I get front door delivery and, so far, don't have to pay 8.25 % sales tax.

+1 on Bob Lunsford's - Bought my first motocross bike from them - 1987 CR500R (one in my avatar).
