Genuine parts

Hi peeps, anyone got any good websites to buy genuine parts online? I've got an XR250R and all the bike shops round here are crap All road bikes, the nearest 'off road' dealer is 30-40 miles away!

Cheers, Ben

I often hear what i consider unecessary comment on various bikes dealer network. In my view when you buy a bike of whatever origins, it would be wise to form a working relationship with a couple good online suppliers. If by some chance you have someplace local to where you usually live, consider that to be a bonus.

This does not help you at all, but once you have found your supplier, he will be on hand wherever you are in the world. Provided you have such a supplier and the bike is not too exotic to be field repairable you will be able to venture where you will and sleep easy

Ben,
You could take a look at:
Honda Motorcycle Parts at David Silver Spares

I haven't used them but lots of others have!

I have used:
MoTo-WARD Ltd Website by telephone ordering and they provided a good service providing genuine parts for my Yamaha; perhaps they do Honda spares, they are certainly into off-road racing. (tel 01403 823222)

Cheers,

Dave

Used spares

If you are after used spares, DK motorcycles in Stoke-on-Trent say they are one of the largest breakers in the UK - can't comment on their prices...
