  • Where do you purchase aftermarket parts?

    This will be an interesting thread for me to show to potential sponsors on this site. It would be nice for vendors to be able to see that members really do support the vendors who support this forum.

    Hopefully, the poll results are favorable

      I buy some from Wingstuff but I also have a few local favorites that I like to give my business to.

        I'm only a month new to a Wing, In past and present, I've had great success with Metric Thunder metricthunder.com email Jim about sponsoring hes a great guy, awesome customer service. I've sent him links from wingstuff although it may not be on his site he gets it and beats there price in record time. I also have bought from JPcycles in past. Few things from Wingstuff and wasn't happy with shipping speed or shipping price.

          I prefer to buy from WingStuff, but that's mostly because I can go by there easily, and I personally know the owner. They've always treated me right. I try to give the vendors of sites I visit first shot, but I also consider price, and quality of service.

            I live in a small town with no local Honda dealer. I buy 99.9% online. I do not make my purchasing decisions based on if a vendor is a sponsor of a particular forum or not. I've been a member of a few forums, some are not motorcycle related, that will not even let you mention a vendor unless they are a sponsor. I will not stick around those forums. For Goldwing stuff I have a couple of go-to-first vendors. If I can't find what I'm looking for I will search for others, maybe looking at sponsors to see what they provide.

              Unfortunately, I do not buy from my local dealer (Ft. Worth), I've had less than favorable experiences what little time I've been in their dealership. I first look on the FS forum then to Shinopples, Cyclemax and Wingstuff.

                I buy a lot of items from Wingstuff, Gerbing from Cyclemax, lights from Electrical Connection and tires, locally. The vendors in my city charge outrageous prices, so I refuse to shop there!

                  99.9% of the "little stuff" such as air or oil filters, spark plugs and such, and any OEM parts I may require would come from on-line sources such as, but not limited to, Ebay, Amazon, MrCycles, or Chaperral motorsports and other places like that.

                      I usually head to Wingstuff first, but have on occasion purchased from DLP. Doesn't work out for me usually as DLP I also in Ohio and by the time I pay handling/shipping and Ohio state tax it is cost prohibitive. I purchase from Bulldog, have purchased from Cyclemax, but they are also in Ohio, however they aren't too far away and I can go to the store which eliminates shipping. OEM parts come from Partzilla or Hammond Honda.

                        Many times I buy from an excellent Honda dealer, Freeport (IL) Honda, which is just 2 miles from me, I have purchased 3 Goldwings from them in the last 20 years. They always give me 15% and sometimes 20% off retail on anything I purchase, including Amsoil products. I also shop sponsors of my favorite websites and make many purchases from them as well. I usually give Freeport Honda first dibs.

                          Oh here and there, always give a forum sponsor first shot. Use Partzilla for OEM parts, just ordered a set of Heli Bars from Cyclemax, I tried to talk them into letting me win them in the drawing, but they simply would not cooperate. Lol!

                          All things come online from somewhere, local dealers do not have anything, no need to even waste the time asking. The standard answer is, we can order it for you, well............so can I.

                          Url and fram filters I find at Wally World.

                          I try my best to support a forum sponsor, usually time you figure up shipping or whatever, there is not much difference. And someone is having to put up with us, that is worth something.

                            My first choice is usually Cyclemax, however, I will purchase from my local dealer when they try to be competitive.

                                        I try to support local businesses first when they don't price themselves out of the picture. After that, I try to at least give the sponsored vendors a chance.
