Best place to buy OEM parts

Can you recommend a good, discount, OEM parts supplier?

Do you have a coupon code I could use at part Shark?
I'm helping a friend restore an '84 GPz 1100 (now 1170)...

Japanese scientists have created a camera with such a fast shutter speed they now can photograph a woman with her mouth shut.

Bike Bandit is much more expensive than Part Shark who has all the best prices on OEM parts.
Kawasaki parts # 34028-1061 and 34028-1062 for example are $39.30 at Part Shark, instead of $55.82 from the Bandit.

I stand corrected!
How did you get to 1170?

It's a Wiseco K1173 piston kit. 2.5mm oversize, 9.5:1 (as original) in bored stock sleeves. Stock displacement was 1089 cc, up 81 to 1170 cc. We're slapping a black Mac 4 into 1 exhaust on it, and a gauged adjustable fuel pressure regulator.

Servicehonda.com is the cheapest I have found, and you can actually reach a human on the phone.

The local Kawasaki dealer is going to be competitive on pricing as long as they're not a mega-store. I've never had my dealer more than a buck or two off the "discount" prices at these online parts houses, the dealer doesn't charge shipping, and the turnaround time is about the same as from UPS/Fedex. Plus I get to talk motorcycling with him and get tons of free advice.

But if you're going to go the way of the Internet, BikeBandit will give you 10% discount if you have an AMA membership. I've used them before.
