Picture Attachment problem (09 Jul 2022)

Due to the extraordinary growth of the membership and resources, we are once again bumping up against hosting limits. I am working on a fix. In the meantime, the forum should function, but you won’t be able to attach images. Working as fast s we can to fix. Thanks for your patience. - Makotosun

Hi all,
Looking for recommendations other than Partzilla.  I have used Partzilla almost exclusively and in the past have been happy with them,  but lately, finding their prices generally higher than a couple others I googled, latest orders on billed parts that are supposedly “IN STOCK”  end up being partial orders,  and their free shipping threshold has been increased to a super high threshold.  They are not very good at keeping there available/not available list updated.  Whats worse,  when something is not available, they do not credit my account and I have had to go through extra work to make sure everything was financially resolved.I understand the situation and prices in general have increased, but Parzilla is not doing things smartly to keep cost down.  On several occasions, they break up the order into multiple shipments causing them to spend multiple times the shipping cost than they would have to.  I understand some want parts they can get right away,  but in my situation, I can wait for all to be shipped and am more looking for a good price.   In addition, I litterly had a bolt/nut/washer, shipped in a box 12 inches long, 6 inches high, and 6 inches wide when it could have been shipped in a small padded envelope and a much lower shipping cost. 
, ridiculous.On other forums I am on usually there is a listing of recommended places to buy and in some cases discounts and/or discount codes that forum members can use.  Just wondering what the recommendations are on this forum for YAMAHA parts.

Even though I live here in the state, I've been shopping a lot with CMSNL and Yambits, decent prices, the shipping is cheaper than partzilla and pretty much all the time gets here faster than partzilla. The two are really good at showing parts that are not in stock.

For OEM parts i use rockymountainatv or partzilla and compare. lately i prefer rockymountain. E-bay is good to. I also use my local Yamaha dealer as much as possible. sometimes there faster at getting the parts and you don't pay any shipping cost.

Here in the UK, doesn't even have to be a main Yamaha dealer. A company called Fowlers is the main wholesaler and so, if your dealer has an account with them, they get sourced from them and you pay Yamaha retail prices. Fowlers also have a fleabay presence, but you pay extra when buying from there, presumably for handling and postage.

For me, CMSNL is a brilliant reference library for photos of original parts. However, on my last order they had to order some parts in, even though they showed as being in stock.

Recently I found a website called hvccycle.net to find parts for my 78 DT400. Just keep in mind for you to search for parts you will need to have the part number (you don’t really need the part number but it makes everything a lot easier). You can find the part numbers by going on to Rocky Mountain or partzilla. Best of luck to you!
