BEST parts site ever!!! no joke!

I was google searching some parts for my kz305, and i came across www.kawasakipartsnation.com this is a kawasaki dealer in Michigan, so they are all OEM parts, at 40-60% less than www.bikebandit.com for example, the o-ring for my oil filler cap was leaking, and its like $7 on bikebandit, its $3 dollars on there! every part is cheaper! check it out!

Not really that great...$17.50 for the least expensive shipping on an $8.10 o-ring that weighs next to nothing!!!!!!

I suppose if you order a large number of parts, they may be worth it.

true, im ordering like a total of 20 things. but most of the time, if you need a normal round o-ring, just take it to a hardware store they have metric o-rings.

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!

Shoulda bought my exhaust pipe and swing arm caps from Kawasaki Parts Nation instead of CheapCycleParts. I woulda saved a couple $ even after shipping.

I'm hope to get V&N Cruzer pipes soon. They are few $ cheaper on motorcyclesuperstore.com than kawasakipartsnation.com after you include shipping.

kawasakipartsnation.com price = $339.95+27.48 (ground) shipping = $367.43. Usually ships in 3-5 Business days
motorcyclesuperstore.com price = $359.99 w/ free (ground) shipping - Saving of $7.44. Usually ships same day.

Seven bucks is seven buck, and with free same day shipping, not hard for me to make my choice as to who I'm buying them from.
