I have purchased a few things online... but mainly gear... I just feel that for parts I want to buy them with a more hands on type of thing... Plus if it's not right I want the security that I can simply return if I want to and not have to wait.
But here are a few places I got thing:

www.helmetsetc.com

I check around to see what retail prices are, then I see what I can get on eBay. I also check with SpeedWerks since they're a site sponsor.

Kneedraggers.com best in price and they get you the parts in 3 days.
I do like kneedraggers..... best prices I've seen.

Speed, is another good source....

But I do buy ALOT on EBay.

I haven't, yet, had a problem with purchasing anything online. I use PayPal as much as I can. But I buy so much online it's sick!!

Not too mention that if you have any problems with your credit card...just call them and tell them. They'll take care of it.

Thanx people, I appreciate the responses and checked out a couple of them. I'm finding that my Katana isn't as profitable as a GSXR and alot of these sites don't carry my stuff. I don't know.

Most of our standard web prices are below kneedraggers or at least the same, and since you're only in PA, shipping isn't going to be expensive (and only a day away via UPS ground).

Of course ... we come here and talk to you ... I know, it can be annoying ... :D

And jdog - we're doing some things with katriders.com - check out their site. The biggest problem isn't so much that your bike isn't profitable, it's just that there simply isn't a ton of aftermarket support for it. We're trying to find stuff for you though!

I find the same problem with my 9R... There may be 2 companies that make ____ part for my bike. But 16 companies that make the same part for a R1 or GSXR!!! :rant:

I love my GSXR for that! :dthumb: I hate my Ducati for that! :cursin:

Jdog; just remember to check shipping $$.
I find quite often that by the time you pay for the part and shipping you can get it at a local store for the same $$ and sometimes less.

I am also a big E-Bay nut! I have saved thousand on parts and have only been duked once.
I have had some issues with stuff not being as described. (damaged in ways that could not have happened in shipping.)
