....Introduction...
This began in a thread where a discussion took place about WHERE to buy parts online (After Gary McCoy was no longer able to sell us parts at a steep discount). From that thread, after a discussion with a couple of other owners and an admin (Ignacio) I began this thread, a simple compilation of sources, from other members, for quick reference.

This is not a complete or all-inclusive list. It is ever changing.
If YOU have a source to add, simply respond in the thread or send me a PM.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DISCLAIMER: Of course, no contributor or the FJR Forum can guarantee that any source listed will give the promised discount.
Caveat emptor! (Let the buyer beware!)
The list below is simply a compilation of sources for parts and pieces. You should still shop and compare.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have taken a list of parts (a printed page of my order, plus freight) to a local dealer in Sacramento and he is matching those prices.
You might try it. I like having a brick-and-mortar store nearby.

Same discount as Zanottis, according to lotecredneck

Per SkooterG :
Based on pricing of 10 parts (6/17/08) Zanotti's was cheaper on 9 of 10 compared to YSC, though they were generally very close. YMMV,

Per SkooterG Jun 17 2008:
I did pricing today on 10 parts. NOT including shipping, Zanotti's was the winner being cheapest on 9 out of 10 parts. Yamaha Sports Center was 2nd best and Flat Out 3rd.

THE PACE
This is a MUST READ for anyone who rides in a group. It doesn't matter if it's a group of 2 or 20...this should be the bible for everyone who rides with others.
It works and it works quite well if everyone understands. I'm privileged to ride with those who DO grasp the concept.
Thanks exskibum and bluestreek (and Nightshine) for many thousands of miles of brisk, safe riding across many states and Canada. You've made my motorcycling experience a joy.

I want to mention Stadium Yamaha. I needed a fairing and both mirrors and this was the cheapest source I could find with shipping taken into account - they sell all Yamaha parts for roughly 25-30% off MSRP and don't overprice shipping (it was $18 via UPS Ground from TX to CA for me). The parts arrived yesterday and were exactly as I'd ordered.

No affiliation of course.

EDIT: Wrongly stated the discount amount.

Actually I found a cheaper source, recommended by the FZ1 forums. PartShark.com. Parts appear to be roughly 35% off MSRP.

I'd like to add a couple of tire sources.... for you US guys, www.twobrotherstires.com they just received the Vendor of the Year award from the ST-Owners.com folks, and from all reports, give excellent prices and service.

For the Canadian guys, we can't seem to beat tire prices at http://www.petes-superbike.com/ and I have had personal experiences with Pete. He is excellent, and excellent prices (you must create a user ID and log in to actually see the prices). If you don't see what you want, just email him and he'll get back to you. You pay GST only.

I just went through a big long drill on $550 worth of OEM parts.

I found Mr. Cycles.com Had good prices. I did not compare them all, but a lot of them and he beat them.

Zanotti's website is a disaster that I did not have the patience for. Who the hell designs these things.

http://www.motosport...com/default.asp Has a super easy to use website but the checkout doesn't even work and it you call them you get a snot nosed parts kid that don't know nothing. I don't think this one is even on the list.

Ditto yesterday on some parts. Kludgy website, but the prices were VERY good. They bested my previous experience with Flat-Out and a couple others by about 25%!

I've bought all my own Yamaha OEM parts over the last few years from www.yamahapartsdepot.com . Nice site with partsfinder. They usually take at least 10 days to ship the parts, but their prices have been far lower then anything else I have ever seen, and all parts I ever received from them were original Yammie parts. I have not looked at Zanotti yet to see how they compare.

Let me know when you do a comparison.

The 10 days to ship might be a deal breaker for some of us when other vendors/websites will ship more expeditiously.
My guess is that many of them have the parts drop-shipped from Yamaha and don't wait for the parts to arrive at their brick-and-mortar store.

Looks like Zanotti has them beat in 4 out of 5 parts I looked up, and the 5th was a wash. I also checked Stadium Yamaha and PartShark.com as suggested above, and they were both even cheaper then Zanotti on all parts, with Partshark having a slight edge. I did not check on shipping though. Wow, I guess I'll go to one of these guys next time I need someting!

They're in Oregon and had an AGM battery by Scorpion to me in 2 days. I've not tested the longevity of the battery yet (as compared to the WestCo battery in the FJR) but the service and price were excellent.

It was time to put in a order for numerous FJR parts, including factory front brake pads, caliper seal kits, rear arm bearings/seals and misc hardware. I used to use Gary at Mondak motorsports and then switched to Zanotti, but wanted to check if pricing had changed from various vendors. So here's what I found for total cost for my bucket of parts (including 9.3% local sales tax or shipping charges to ZIP code 98391):

Local dealer: $472.37
Ronayers.com: $353.40
Cyclepartswarehouse.com: $337.19
Zanottimotor.com: $328.39
Yamahasportsplaza.com: $320.69
Bikebandit.com: higher than Ron Ayer even with AMA discount.

I like the idea of supporting my local dealer, but holy smokes! the same parts would cost $152 more there and I'd probably still have to wait a week for them to order at least some of my order. For the statistical types, this is almost 50% higher than the cheapest online source!

Your experience echos mine. Still, you need to check several as they can vary on different parts. The other thing is shipping. On a recent order, Zanotti was cheapest by a few bucks, but had expensive shipping. Cyclepartswharehouse.com had very reasonable shipping and got my business.

And somehow completely messed up the "form"....I'm waiting to see if one of the moderators can fix it......

I also added a comment to my opening header:

I have taken a list of parts and prices (A print of the shopping cart list INCLUDING FREIGHT) from internet sources to my local
Yamaha dealer. He has matched their prices every time. I explained to them that I'd rather deal with a local supplier but it is my hard-earned
money. Of course I have to pay CA sales tax but the freight is included on anything I order from them.
My most recent sojourn in parts replacement was the rear wheel I bent coming home from Wheatie's CA adventure.&nbsp; The local dealer actually beat
the on-line prices and had the wheel from Japan within a week.
I'm not saying every dealer would be willing to work with us, but some will, and it keeps the local brick-and-mortar store there for MY
convenience.


It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
