always check a sellers feedback. There are several legit stores on ebay too. But yea you do have to be careful. So far I only got burnt once n it was a $5 item so

I understand your feelings about Ebay as I got screwed on a set of wheels for my GSXR but that is also the beauty of Paypal! I just filed the claim and the A$$ refunded my money the next day, there was another guy that didn't send me an axle that I once again filed a claim again with paypal but the guy didn't respond in a week I think it was and paypal again refunded my money. I use Ebay for a ton of parts and have had decent luck especially if you stick with power sellers or stores with high good feedback!

But to answer your question about where to find parts. I know a few sites but that does depend on what you are looking for? have you tried www.denniskirk.com? they have some things for your bike as well as http://www.tobefast.com/suzuki-gsxr-...w-c-51561.html
and
http://www.hyperformanceparts.com/ca...0-c-23_44.html


these are just a few sites I look at parts at but I have never ordered from them and cannot say how well they deal with there customers. But if you are wanting to go a bit more into the bike you may contact http://www.kwsmotorsports.com/index.htm
as it seams like they know what they are doing! I have found all these sites by talking to people on forums and they seamed to be talked about highly.

I notice you are located in Indy, have you stopped by Cycle Outfitters or Indy Superbikes? I like the way Cycle outfitters treats their customers and have always been very helpful all be it a bit expensive compared to online but its the personal service. I have a few friends that shop at Indy Superbikes but I have never been there but havr looked at their website.

Just a few things to try and check out. I live just 40 miles south of indy and am always willing to lend a hand if you need help with anything.

No problem! Any time! I plan on stripping my bike down to the frame again this winter to either have the frame chromed or polish it myself depending on how much money I can save. I'm sure I will probably do a ring job to the engine too if some home remedies don't fix the slight smoking. You are always welcome to come down and lend a hand if you want to see the inside if the 2000 engine.

oh and

yeah that would be sweet... how do you polish yourself??? cause thats part of the reason i am tearing mine apart is while i had the motor out i was thinking of sending my frame to illinois to get chromed.. that would be pretty neat to learn. well have to talk more and get together sometime.

this is a site i found about GSXR mods. He talks about polishing frames on there. I figure that if I can't find the money to chrome the frame then his method of polishing sounds easy but time consuming. I have been told that there is a company that does show chrome plating in Madison IN. I haven't tried to get ahold of them to find out prices yet but thats an option.
