Yes you are quite correct in finding that sometimes (but not always)the genuine parts are cheaper than alternative parts.
As i do not have a yamaha dealer near me i get all of my genuine parts mail order from honda kawasaki suzuki yamaha motorcycle parts in the Netherlands, very handy as you can do a partnumber search online, prices and delivery costs are very reasonable.
As for ebay some of the prices people are paying for old used parts is rather baffling as the same may be cheaper new.
