Has anyone bought OEM parts from this website

Has anyone bought OEM parts from this website: http://www.kawasakipartsnation.com/

I am just a bit wary of dealing with new merchants that I have never dealt with before. If no one has been a customer at this website, is there any recommendation for OEM parts or should I just go to my dealer (they usually charge more).

Thanks,

Part Shark of North Martinsville, IN (877-999-5686) has even better prices on OEM parts, and have been in business for over 15 years.

just had a batch of parts delivered from kawasakipartsnation

took a while because they were special order parts (apparentlythe 2007 black ebony Versys is so rare that painted parts have to come from Kawasaki in Japan). dunno if this applies to other Canadian variants or all North American variants. I haven't had the need (no do I want to) to order the paineted parts for a EU versys to find out if its the same here

Parts Shark list parts for 2009 Versys (Canada only) or 2009 Versys (European). Where does US fit in?

that will almost certainly reflect the way Kawasaki arranges its parts fiches
the reality is that there are precious few differences between the Versys worldwide
except the painted plastic panels
EU models have a closed loop Fuel injections system requiring as pambda sensor in the exhaust
reflectors for US & Canadaian models
changes in the brake reservioir in 2009
California's carbon addon
theres undoubtedly more but the changes are relatively minor

I've ordered twice from kawaskipartsnation.com.
Parts came quick each time and site was easy to use. Parts were less than what the dealer wanted.

BIKEBANDIT is good, even to Canada. They have a neat Iphone app too that shows all schematics and breakdowns, you can even order thru the app. I find it handy out in the garage to see how things all fit together.
