    Reputable vendor recommendations?

    I've been shopping around for some parts on my bike, and was curious who your go-to vendors are. I found one shop whose name I wont mention (rhymes with "procycle"), but their prices seem a bit on the ridiculous side. K&N air filter at $62 vs. $47 at Amazon, YTZ7S AGM battery for $120 vs. $90 on Amazon, FG exhaust wrap 2"x25' for $40 vs. 2"x50' on Amazon for $15 (and twice as many stainless zip ties), etc...

    I'm not after anything fancy, just taller bars (I'm 5'14" or so), fresh battery, oil change consumables, brake pads/shoes, that kind of stuff.

    Any vendors you guys recommend, or warn away from?

    O'Reilly's: Spark plugs, oil, battery & K&N oil filter if you (a) make sure it has 4 holes, not 3 and (b) none of the oils are plugged.

    A few years ago I would frequently order from Bikebandit.com and always had good prices.
    Lately I have been ordering from Amazon due to free 2 day shipping with Prime.
    Yesterday I ordered for the first time from Rocky Mountain ATV and MC. They had great prices on what I was looking for and free 3 day shipping if you spend $75 or more.

    That largely depends on where you are.

    fortnine.ca is good to Canada. Free shipping on orders over 49$ CAD. Less then a week shipping.

    ProCycle is great to deal with and if you buy say $300 or more in stuff give them a call and see if they have any room to deal I've found if they can they will work with you

    Amazon or Rocky Mtn. ATV. Just be sure you are comparing apples to apples.

    Revzilla for clothing and maybe a few other items like tires.

    I use Amazon a lot. One piece of advice is to check all items for manufacture date and inspect them closely. Iíve never had any problems, but Iíve read some reviews of buyers getting brand new items that are years old. Not ideal for rubber products like the seals on oil filters, etc. Iím sure thatís not exclusive to Amazon. Cheers

    K&N air filters , I wouldn't. Less filtering ability. Nothing wrong with Procycle, always have what you need. Similar to buying local versus a big box store , local folk care about YOU.
