You are on a great OEM site, contact the TT OEM. My buddy just ordered upper forks for his WR450 from them, great price.

You'll get the fee back in savings on your first purchase of anything worth $50 retail, even with the shipping (unless it's really big or heavy).

Fat discounts, good service, parts delivered to your door.

No membership fees, wholesale prices, and reliable shipping. :thumbsup:

The normal TT store is awesome, but I've had issues with OEM TT (Generation MX) When I don't get parts and can't ride, I get angry very fast. So far, JT Motorsports hasn't made me angry.

Their service may be good, but their prices are quite a bit higher than the TT store or CR.

I use powersportspro.com. They have an online microfiche to find what you're looking for and I've never had a problem with them. No membership fees either.

Three parts at random:

'04 YZ450 CRANKSHAFT ASSY (5XD-11400-00-00)
Retail: $353.48

PowerSprtsPro: $353.48

North County Yamaha: $300.46

TT OEM: $279.52

CrotchRocket: $285.76

'04 YZ450 3rd wheel gear (5TA-17231-00-00)
Retail: $42.99

PowerSportsPro: $45.22

North County Yamaha: $38.44

TT OEM: $27.35

CrotchRocket: $29.90

'06 YZ450 Clutch Friction plates (x9) (5TA-16321-00-00)
Retail: $96.39

PowerSportsPro: $86.73

North County Yamaha: $73.71

TT OEM: $66.33

CrotchRocket: $58.50

Crotchrocket,com is the only one I know of that competes with TT OEM. There have been times when they had problems getting the parts I needed, but TT OEM always told me about it. I've had them do other things for me, like pack two orders placed at different times in the same box to save shipping, expedite shipping on follow-up orders, and ship back ordered parts free when I needed the rest of the order right away, all without being asked. IMO, it's $10 well spent.

I've ordered parts from OEMTT and told them I needed the part by Friday so I could ride, I also told them I could care less how they shipped the part, just make sure it I got it by the weekend....... The first time my bike sat on the stand for the weekend, I thought maybe I didn't get my point across, the second time it happened, I thought I seen a pattern developing.

Like I said, the regular TT store is awesome, but when I need OEM parts, I call crotchrocket. :thumbsup:
