Yeah, I'm not exaggerating either. I actually bought all the replacement parts, and the whole left side plastics along with some assorted non accident related parts and still ending up with over $1,500 in my pocket. It's the only good thing the local Honda shop has ever done for me by quoting me high replacement costs. Because of their high prices, my bike was almost totaled and it was only cosmetic damage. I told my adjuster about their inflated prices and he actually mentioned to me that I could cash out my claim, fix the bike myself and use the extra money for fixing parts that weren't damaged in the wreck.
Zanotti has the best prices on parts but Ron Ayers has a little better pricing on plastics. Ron Ayers uses set shipping rates where Zanotti will charge actual shipping charges per order. For my large order it was much cheaper to buy everything from Zanotti as the overall savings/shipping was the best deal.
What I usually do, is look up the part numbers on Ron Ayers or call into the local shop and order the parts through email at Zanotti. If you order from them once, they will keep your info on file for a few months so if you want to order more, you just need to send them an email with what you want and they will charge your card and ship it out to you. They are truly awesome!
What people don't realize is that you can get NEW parts on-line cheaper than what I've seen people selling used stuff for on eBay. If you have a Honda or Yamaha, I highly recommend buying your parts through Zanotti.
