Had to price out a few parts to get the machine ready for Spring. Did some work over the winter and some bits needed some replacement. I gathered all the part numbers I needed and called the DEALER and got my price for the bits. No surprise on the prices here.

BUT

I went on Bike bandit and a few other sites to price the very same bits and low and behold, I am BETTER OFF going to the dealer for my parts. Living in Canada I have to pay duties and stuff on the online stuff from the US so after all is said and done its CHEAPER to go to the dealer for parts.

Just found it interesting

Yeah, I have noticed this also. On actual Honda parts, Bike Bandit used to always beat my local dealer's prices but in the last year the dealer is pretty close to the Bike Bandit price or less due to the shipping costs. I still like Bike Bandit simply because I order parts and they get to my door very fast.
