Hey all, I'm wondering who your preferred suppliers are for Mother's parts. I've looked at a couple of sources, and found a significant difference in price.
Specifically, I'm pricing valve seals. low price is at $5.81.

When I can afford a few days I use Service Honda. I have heard from others that their shipping hasgotten better but most times it seems like about 2 weeks for me.

I have only bought maybe two items from Mother Honda, and both times I felt like I got screwed in the a$$. I do about anything to not buy any thing from from, but I may buy OEM online at times.

Valve guide seals: check your local engine machine shop. They are relatively cheap.

My favorite is http://www.cheapcycleparts.com/pages...d/7/Honda.aspx They are real easy to deal with, the lowest prices on most items and a real person will answer the phone if you call them for help.

I'm a big fan of BIKE BANDIT. The shipping is about as cheap as it gets, and quick. The only caution I've heard about them is that if you pay for expedited shipping, and they have to order the part (read: 1 to 2 weeks delivery time), they still charge you for the expedited shipping and don't inform you that it's an out of stock product.

Fortunately I've not needed expedited shipping on anything, so I've not had to deal with this one yet.

www.hdlparts.comhas been givng me the run around for almost 4 weeks now. I called to place my order to ensure the parts were right and paid the service fee. Which I didnt mind (much),and yet after waiting over a week fordelivery,1st time the color was wrong as well as 75% of the ther sutff wasnt right as well as No invoice. 2nd time only half of what I orderedactually came (but hey at least they didnt charge me for the missing parts and it did come with an invoice). So now I have been waiting 10 days since my last call to them and cant wait to see if they got it right this time.

yeah the prices are good but I hope you arent in a rush to get your parts

I'll try www.hondparts-direct.com next time



Best Wishes

I mostly use http://www.mrcycles.com/ as I find there prices to be some of the best. They seem to get stuff out as quickly as anyone else and the shipping seems in line.
