I personally have never purchased from them.Read about them in the vendor database.
What I glean is the parts they sell may not be OEM but OEM replacement parts and may have issues with little recourse to remedy the problem.
If you have difficulty locating a part...post a "urgently wanted" right here.
Out of the millions of members,I would think someone would have what you need or at least a line on one.

They're about the worst of the worst. Have a look at what others have said about them:

You might want to have a look at http://www.partsnmore.com/ - I think they had valves the last time I looked, and they are reliable.

Even their on line store ads are deceptive. Example: Timing belts. They have a genuine Honda belt taped to one of their Chinese belts. So the buyer thinks he is getting OEM. Nuf said. http://www.saber-cycle.com/store/product28.html

I have ordered a few things from them but only as a last resort. They are not an OEM dealer so all of their parts they do carry are knock offs. But, many of their parts are unavailable for classic wings so they can be the only game in town. Dealing with them is sort of like dealing with the "Soup Nazi." If you are looking for chrome for a classic Wing this may be your only option. For mechanical parts I have found better luck going to ebay.

"Meets or exceeds OEM specifications by Barracuda Bike Parts™. Our second photo compares our 19mm, 87 tooth belt with the OEM"

OEM parts are always preferable I think, but I have brought master cylinder and slave cylinder parts plus a few emblems,
from saber cycle and have had no issues with them, delivery time was good also.

In the words of the famous Paul Harvey... "and now you know the rest of the story."

Always good to hear both sides.
