I have been looking all over the web for a source of cheap OEM parts for my 2006 FJR which recently had an unfortunate encounter with a deer. The front fender I needed was generally in the area of $101 to $108 delivered. I was about to order and then decided to do a final web search using just the part serial number for the fender.

Up jumped: http://www.PowersportsPlus.com indicating a price of $72 plus $9 shipping for a total of $81. This makes Powersports $19 less than next lowest delivered price.

Vot a deal! Powersports appears to be a Yamaha boat motor dealer but has access to all types of OEM moto parts.(Honda, Suzuki et al)

Great sleuthing!

There are quite a few sources for OEM parts. Cycle Parts Warehouse is another one with generally good prices.

Never heard of them before. Did you try Cyclepartswarehouse, Yamaha Sports Plaza, or Yamaha Sports Center? In my experience, those are the three that usually are the cheapest depending on the item.

IIRC Powersports is a part of the same group as Boats.net :rolleyes:

Look before you leap may be good advice - but if you really intend leaping, don't spend too long looking...........

It is where I got all my parts for my blown rim. They are great to deal with. Boats.net is where I went but it switches you over to powersport for Yamaha parts. Fast shipping and good prices.

I've been using http://www.indyoem.com for my needs. I may have to check into that powersports plus site. Thanks for the heads-up!
