starcycle.com had lowest price on my Yoshimura TRS slip-ons, $526 with Free Shipping. Star Cycle and Pete is an awesome guy! He went out of his way to find out why my muffs had no spouts when all the pics showed them. It was Yoshimura's change made. He even forwarded to me his e-mail to the Yosh district rep and her response to him. Great customer service at Star Cycle!
Fox Performance (placed order through Amazon): Gorilla Alarm for $99 with free shipping. Same price as everyone else but shipped extremely fast! Like within a few days to my door!
Motovation Usa had a great price on their sliders, $79, but paying $11 for shipping AND, dig this: $1.95 for "handling"! What's that
all about? But hey, they make them and they are just in the next State (which blew me away that they charged so much for shipping!)
Lucky Bike (ordered through Amazon): Red anodized brake and clutch levers for $20 plus $5 shipping. Service was fine, but these things are CRAP! I put them on, tried them, and took them back off within minutes. They look cool, but they are lower than stock and hard to reach unless you have the finger reach of an NBA star!
Stop N Go International: Bought their cool Pocket Tire Plugger for $32 plus $7 for shipping. Fast shipping. I didn't like their price for extra cO2 cartridges or their dispenser, but the kit was a good price.
Bike Bandit: Lowest price I could find on a Parts Unlimited tether kill switch ($12 plus $6 shipping) but I realized WHY it was so cheap when I got it! NO MOUNTING SYSTEM or bracket whatsover! I guess I'm supposed to drill a 1/2" hole somewhere and mount this huge, bulky unit! Absolute garbage! I learned a lesson about tethers: pay more if you want the good ones!
PhatPerformanceParts.com had the best price (at the time I ordered) on the Power Commander LCD Unit at $275 but in order to not have to wait about a month or two for UPS Ground (absolute slowest shipping source, so I always pay extra for 3-day if sellers ship UPS Ground) I paid $38 more. They did offer free shipping, but it would have taken 6 months to get! Why do I say that? Because this place had the absolute WORST service I've ever gotten from an online retailer. It took them almost 2 weeks jsut to send my order out!
, then only after I sent them several e-mails to ask about my order that I paid extra for 3-day UPS! They got rude with me in their replies, and said "It's 3 days from the day we ship the order, not from the day you place that order!" to which I replied "I realize that, but why does it take you almost 2 weeks to walk across the warehouse, pick the item, package it and send it out?" (I worked in an automotive warehouse for years, and ALL our orders that were in stock went out same day!)
Tonker, Inc in Florida had the best price I could find after Googling for my helmet for days! I got the Shoei RF-1000 in wine (almost 99.9% color match to my bike, ironically!). I paid $326 with free shipping, and the service was fast! I saved about $100 over my local stores.
Vizi-Tec.com was the only place I could find the tail-light modulator/flasher that someone in the forum told me where to find there. They ONLY have them for TWO Honda's: the 919 and a Rebel 250. But hey, for about $70 I got this thing FAST!
WHO I HAVE NOT USED AND WHY:
Dennis Kirk: they have always had the highest prices of any online retailer I've ever checked or ordered from. Back when I had my GS750 and my KZ650 I placed a couple orders from them because I found them in back of a cycle magazine. Didn't have a computer at the time. Haven't used Dennis Kirk in over 10 years because of their high prices. Sure, they will beat others but then make up for it in shipping.
Chapperal (or however you spell it) has also been extremely high priced and I've had bad service/slow shipping from them. Used to by all my tires and chains/sprockets from them (back with the 16v GS750 that I love doing smoke shows halfway down the block with!). The have nice people, but I wouldn't use again.
Motorcycle Superstore: Another place I found has been higher priced than most, and don't really have too many parts for 919s.
So, there you have it, my online motorcycle experiences. The rest of my stuff I bought locally, like suits, pants, jackets, gloves, etc.
YOU CAN WAKE UP NOW!
