Parts rip off

Postby flash2002 » Tue Aug 28, 2012 9:51 pm



God, I went to the dealer today to get a oil filter bolt for my 79 GL1000 they wanted $65.00 bucks :shock: are they nuts. I went on the net and got one for $12.95 :D made by Honda, I think they should get there act together.

Most "Stealerships" always seem to act like "you need them they don't need you" and thats why its the last place most go to when needing parts.

Hi Steve, I got the part on E-Bay , it was $12.95 plus $5.00 for shipping, still real cheap.
