Hey guys is there anyplace worth ordering parts from outside of the local dealership. Yesterday we had a loading mishap and needless to say I now need a new mirror assembly, brake handle, rear turnsignal, ehaust housing, and someone to remove a dent from the gas tank. I'm not a happy camper!!
Thanks for any suggestions. Mark

Sorry to hear about that! How did it happen?

You can probably get some good advice from g8torblue, krushchev, and lbjester. They have all had mishaps. Here is a link someone gave them:
www.cycle-parts.com

Also, someone here who has added custom exhaust may be willing to sell you an exhaust housing. I'm hanging on to mine in case I sell my bike and sell it "stock"

eBay is a great place to get parts. But, I've heard that Yamaha actually is the cheapest manufacturer when it comes to OEM parts, so maybe you'll get lucky and find parts for cheap. Never fun to drop your bike. Good luck.

I honestly couldn't get over how cheap the parts are from Yamaha. I had to by a left fairing and crankcase cover and from the dealer it was only $100 (CAD)+ Tax. My neighbor has a CBR F4 and he said that must have cost you what $600, since he's done some plastic repairs on his bike before. He couldn't believe how cheap the parts are from the dealer. Now being in Canada it's hard to find parts from other sources that are cheaper when you have to import them. But you'd be surprised how cheap they may be. Did you go an Yamaha's website and look up all the parts you need? I can't post a direct link to in but you go to www.yamaha-motor.com and go to parts + service and then parts catalogue. You can look up all the parts there. There is no pricing on there but you can use those part numbers an conjunction with www.cycle-parts.com for pricing then see how they stack up for pricing. (Possibly beat down your dealer if they are cheaper.) I couldn't source the crankcase cover form cycle-parts it looks to me like they may only stock plastic but you may have better luck.
