BEST OEM Kawasaki Parts dealer in country or local to LA, CA?

Who is the best parts dealer to deal with? Partzilla should be near best, but a local one to LA (or Orange County, CA) would trade tax for shipping and give me some face-to-face dealer time, with time to compare new bikes.

Local dealers usually can get parts in a couple of days, and IF they have a discount online parts, like Huntington Beach Honda (my last bike), they are close to best, if not the best discount in the county (with free shipping if you pick up at a dealer). LA is about the biggest motorcycle market in the country, so hopefully, Kawasaki has a similar internet discount parts store with deep discounts-??

Thanks!!

Not a dealer but I have purchased lots of OEM parts for all the Kawi's I've had. Best prices and ships fast when parts are in stock.

Located in Chatsworth, CA - local to the Southern California area.

Thanks! Unfortunately, they are in the worst place in LA for traffic and 55 miles away. I appreciate the link and will hold on to it.

I've had good luck with ronayers.com. Free shipping on orders over $89.

If they can beat Partzilla, I'll use them. Thanks!

This one looks like a top 3 Kawasaki parts house (largest in world?) with a microfiche online. Now I need to find a good one close with near best or best rates I can pick up (also w/a microfiche online to order wholesale.) That way I can meet the master mechanics through the parts dept I may not work on it, but I dang sure want to know what's going on before I get something worked on.

I shop around every time I buy. Ronayers is who I have bought OEM from the most. I still shop around though.

Yeah, I've heard a few recommendations for Ron Ayers, and they are in CA, so they will at least have the CA pollution parts. I wonder if he is what's causing all that traffic in NE LA? Or maybe its those 15 expressways intersecting up there!

OEM parts cost efficiency is a big ongoing opportunity, whereas high dollar options are a one-time stab in the butt. Ron may be the man in LA to deal with, by phone or email hopefully.
