Ha! Get this. Last year a friend of mine dumped my spare bike while attempting to brake and swerve at the same time (A.K.A. falling) to avoid hitting young deer (he and the deer are both fine). He's willing to pay for the replacement parts out of pocket to avoid making an insurance claim, so for giggles I compared the cost of nine parts from Kawasaki Parts Nation, with RonAyers, Bike Bandit and the local Kawasaki dealer near my friend's home.

NY Motorcycle --------- $779.67 + NYC Sales Tax ($65.30)
Bike Bandit ------------ $775.49 + Shipping
Ron Ayers Motorsports - $655.94 + Shipping
Cheap Cycle Parts ----- $571.25 + Shipping
Kawasaki Parts Nation -- $546.55 + Shipping

So, unless shipping from Kawasaki Parts Nation outrageous, they've got my vote for this restoration!
