I have had good luck with ronayers.com

I always shop around though for the best total price on my entire order. I will also add maintenance items to get to the free shipping if that works out to the best price.

Ronayers.com lately because of the free shipping on orders over $89.

Maybe a good opportunity to go with silicone hoses. Don't know if they are available for the Versys but they have 'em for KLRs on ebay.

IF you must know..........I was installing the Thermo-Bob and messed up the cuts on my hoses So now I need to try again and do it RIGHT this time. The silicone hoses are like $60 and shipped from the UK So that will not be an option. Thanks for the inputs
UPDATE: Just tried to order from RonAyers....FAIL "There are no shipping methods available to the selected destination(s)." REALLY?? I really LOVE IT when companies still believe that ALASKA is a foreign or international destination! Come on people we are in the 21st Century NOT the 70's. Another company on my list of who NOT to do business with.

I'll pay a little for service. For example partshark can usually beat bikebandit prices, even with bikebandit's AMA discount, but service from bikebandit is better.

I've always gotten my orders from partshark and with correct items, but the last time I didn't get an order confirmation email nor did I get a reply to my query to when my order would ship. It just showed up, a little later than I originally expected. Fortunately before I ordered the parts elsewhere.
