Honda OEM parts - where to buy

I swear I was browsing through a post or two a month ago and someone posted a link to a site (online dealer?) where they had purchased replacement parts much cheaper than what their local dealer would quote them. Also much cheaper than EBAy, etc.

Does anyone know the site?

I could have sworn the orig post was about getting a new gas tank, but I haven't been able to find it after much searching.

ridenow.com is my favorite, have bought several parts from them, usually the best price out there.

I use the fiche at Ron Ayers to get the part number(s).

Service Honda usually has a better price.

Ridenow is pretty damn good. That said, I'm fortunate that I get 15% off at my local dealer, Berts Mega Mall in beautiful Covina California.

I find ridenow is usually about 10% cheaper than bikebandit on most parts. RonAyers is also usually more expensive and their shipping charges can be crazy.

As mentioned already. I've used Service Honda. But, I get 15% off at my local Kawi, Honda, Duc and H-D dealers. Use the fiche and Ron Ayers or your service manual and make a phone call with part number. Nice and simple. Since you looked up the part number ... no one to blame for a screw up, but yourself.

It's better to have loved and lost than live with the psycho for life!

I've never used any of the other sites so i can not offer a comparison on price or service but I've always used Honda Parts Direct and been happy.

Thats true, but I have also seen it the other way around between those two depending on the part.

Seems that no one place always has the lowest price on all their parts, service and reasonable shipping charges always help me make my decision as well.

Thanks guys. I'm sure I can get whatever I may need from these.

I need to get a new axle nut at some point, but not by itself due to shipping costs. Damn crappy 12 point 27mm socket I have rounded off a couple corners bad enough that I want it replaced. I hate 12 pt sockets, but that's all I could find in 27mm.
I want a cheaper place to buy the axle nut rather than my dealer if I cannot find a suitable replacement at the hardware store. I guess I'm also in the market for a 6 pt socket that will fit. The 27 seems too big, hence the rounding off. Maybe I'll try the closest SAE size in between 26 & 27 mm.

If you want a 27mm 6 pt socket try Ace Hardware. They carry a 27 mm 6 pt 1/2 drive deep socket. Ace stock #2162121 SOCKET 1/2D 27MM DP ACE
Ace brand socket, lifetime warranty.

Or, try Grainger - http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/items/5F474

As another option - got my 6pt / 27mm socket at Sears.

Craftsman tools are always been reliable IMO.

I picked up a 1-1/16 6 pt socket at Ace today. Anyone who has tried both the 27mm and the 1-1/16 on their axle nut will surely notice the difference.

The 27mm is just plain and simply the WRONG size. Too big. The 1-1/16 fits like a socket should.

Anyone who recommends using the 27 should be corrected.

Pardon me for going back to the original subject but...I ordered my last batch of parts from http://sloansmotorcycle.com a.k.a. http://www.fastandcheapcycleparts.com/

My thoughts? Definitely cheap. They beat the local dealer by about $100 on the 3 parts I ordered. Prices when compared to Ron Ayers and BB were still on the low side. I can't find my comparison sheet now. But here is the prices of the parts
11392-MV9-670 $7.91 Honda - GASKET
28125-MV9-672 $126.73 Honda - CLUTCH, STARTER
28110-MER-D00 $59.63 Honda - GEAR

Shipping was $15, and took a little bit longer than if I had ordered them at the local shop. The other pro to this deal is, I didn't have to cage to get them...they magically arrived at my door.

Thought I would drop my $0.02.
