OEM Equipment Vendors

Post by Touristas » Mon Jan 07, 2019 6:43 pm



Hi Folks!

I've been exploring sources for some OEM GoldWing parts and equipment. Before spending a lot of money, it's always comforting to hear about good/bad experiences others may have had from various vendors. Three on my short list are partzilla.com, bikebandit.com, and hondapartshouse.com.

We would be pleased to hear about direct experience with these folks, good or bad.

Thanks much!
Touristas

Partzilla.com and Cyclemax.com are two of my favorites. I've never tried the other ones you mentioned.

Western Honda (Arizona Honda Dealership) is my go to parts source. Online prices are very competitive and shipping is prompt. If their parts list has a part listed as available it is. I like Cyclemax also but their shipping is pretty steep.

ditto,
1st is CycleMax
Why? Gary and Betty are running a Family Owned business.
and he never shows anything " In Stock " unless it is ON THE SHELF


2nd is Partzilla
they are reliable, but slow in putting out their orders.

Touristas - I live in Canada, and have dealt with Cyclemax as well. As you show Alaska as location, I would think that you would run into some of the same shipping as we do, and that is that almost everyone is pretty expensive on that side of the coin. Cyclemas is most excellent to deal with, but again, as mentioned, shipping can be pricey. I do not believe OEM is available from Cyclemax, so for that you are stuck with dealerships and salvage places. A lot of dealerships are not big on speed getting orders out, and they all make sure they make some money on the handling part of shipping and handling. Some dealerships that have the largest parts and accessories stock will not even ship orders at all. The dealership in Orlando Florida is like that. I had to have a friend who was vacationing in Florida actually go there to get what I had purchased. WingStuff are pretty good, but their shipping is over the top.

I've had decent service from Babbitts - they seem to stock pretty much everything, and shipping is not outrageous.

To all the kind folks who responded to my query about OEM parts suppliers, thank you all. There were too many for me to respond individually, but do know how grateful I am to each of you who bothered.

I have only placed one order with www.cyclemax.com so far and was very pleased with the promptness of their shipment. They are definitely on my short list for Goldwing Parts. I have also used www.hondapartshouse.com for parts for my Magna and a few miscellaneous parts for the Goldwing Cyclemax didn't have listed. I have found www.hondapartshouse.com is typically cheaper than www.partzilla.com or www.bikebandit.com. Plus I have found www.hondapartshouse.com seems to have more parts in stock than the other two.
