I think you just got "served" by a bear with a heart on it's tummy.


Sorry, Qwertster. I can't help but go here when I see your new avatar thingy. LOL.

Yes but going to Google is not as specific as going to Qwerty. I'd take a mixed approach, search google and then ask Qwerty if you had selected the right source. The true answer is the supplier who at the moment has the best price and best arrangement for shipping the part to you. Often thats my local mc shop because they will help me install it and or make sure its right even if its wrong. Support your local advisor, he/she can save your bacon in the future. I've been known to take a motorcycle coffee table book or maintenance manual by the shop and give it to them as a way of buying good karma for the future. Thanks Scotty and Rex. You are part of the reason we enjoy motorcycles. Tom

peruano is correct about the choice of suppliers changing daily. stadiumyamaha.com used to have free shipping. Now they charge way too much for shipping on little stuff. I always start shopping at stadiumyamaha.com to get an idea of for what I am looking, then go to google for more details, especially comparing price + shipping + tax, shipping date, in stock, and customer dissatisfaction reports.

I gotta say that ever since some online suppliers started playing shipping games in addition to their other games, for O.E.M. parts I've had better luck, faster delivery and equal or lower pricing from my local Yamaha dealer, and I don't have to wonder whether or not they'll charge me 20 bucks to ship a 2 dollar item. Shipping is always free and in most cases I can go pick the parts up the next day.



Just sayin'. I've always been anti-dealer in the past but they've saved my bacon a few times when online dealers jerked me around. No mas internet for me unless I can't avoid it or don't care how long it takes.



Those of you without a local dealer should take Qwerty's advice and read the fine print before you buy.

My local dealer is Abernathy's in Union City. Sorry to say, they don't even seem to know what a TW is, their employees are generally rude, and their prices are double to quadruple online prices.



Definately do a "cost +" analysis before ordering online. Some internet sellers will rip you off with shipping and handling. Caveat emptor.
