check servicehonda.com. When I rebuilt my 650R, I saved over $100 on parts from them, and that includes shipping. Just give them about a week to ship parts, but IMO, the wait is worth the price savings...

I have had great luck ordering OEM parts from bikebandit.com. They are usually 20-30% lower priced than any local shop, and they are fast (if they have the parts in the warehouse).

The one issue I had with them was ordering steering bearings for an '87 TW200. Part of it was because I had to order individual ball bearings, and I needed over 20. That order took about 3 weeks to show up at my door. All the rest of my orders took less than a week.

Another bonus for bike bandit, they charge a flat 6 buck for shipping. If you are ordering a lot of stuff, it works out to be a good deal on shipping too.
