I absolutely agree that cheapcycleparts.com is the cheapest I have found online. Shipping is $10, not bad at all.

I DISAGREE with the "fast shipping". I'm waiting on some parts from them right now. I ordered two weeks ago and their website tracking says my order hasn't even been packed up yet.

In previous orders it's taken about a week to get the parts AFTER they say they've shipped them.

I also tried to call customer service once. Their wait times were long so I entered my phone number to have them call me back. They did, about 4 hours later, and were unable to answer my question.

At this point the pennies saved vs other sites isn't worth it. This will be my last order with them.

cheapcycleparts does have good prices, but shipping is slow. My latest parts experience was with the rear brakes - they sent a previously opened box with dirty finger prints all over it and the replacement springs weren't in the box. They didn't seem to mind when I told them. Not a deal breaker though.

I'm glad some of you have had luck w/cheapcycleparts. I ordered exhaust gaskets, which they said they had in stock. After waiting about a week and a half, I called and they promised they would be shipped that day. Well, to make a long story short, this went on with me calling every two or three days for another couple weeks. Each time Jessica, she always answered the phone, claimed it was on the way. Never showed so I had them cancel it. I'll never use them again.

Last tuesday (July 6) I placed and order with cheapcycleparts. Ordered various gaskets & o-rings and balancer dampers(Yes I am doing my THIRD stator replacement, this time using TPE stator). My order shipped on friday (they used Fedex) and I had my parts on Monday. So, my one experience with them was very positive. I would use them again. YMMV

price is good but I dont believe they stock a lot of the parts, instead they have to order them bu tthey order so much they get a deal on them, the order sits on their site unfilled for a while but once it is filled there you get it in a day or two, I believe it is cause they have to wait on the shipping to them so as long as your not in a rush its hard to beat the price!

I find the fact that they don't tell you this unacceptable. Long story short, if you use cheapcycleparts.com you better order a month ahead of time to be sure you'll have what you need when you need it.

I can almost remember reading that somewhere I their site in very very fine print. most of my orders took around 10 days, but when you are waiting on a part to fix your ride it seems like 6 weeks!

I order almost everything I get from cheapcycleparts. I've never had anything get here in less that 10 days, but I've also never anything take longer than two weeks. Also, compare the item cost + shipping cost. I've found if I only need 1 or 2 things, it's sometimes cheaper to get them locally. I've made several orders for parts for the 750 as well as my 4 wheeler and never had an issue with any of the parts. So, as long as you've got two weeks to wait for parts, you'll not find them any cheaper.

Mom, I'm not wearing my helmet only for the purpose of taking this picture and

I have found that with any part i need for my 750 i'm waiting a week to get the parts. dosent matter if its online or at my local KAW shop (6 blocks away). Only aftermarket accessories are more available.
