    Are there really *no* half decent internet (or even non-internet, but
    internet is easier) mail-order spare parts suppliers for bike parts?
    I'm specifically after Honda spares (VFR750F, not old or rare) and
    though I've Googled around several times over the past few years I've
    never really found any half useful suppliers.

    There are two or three good suppliers for Citroen XM parts (we have
    two Citroen XMs) so surely someone could make a Honda bike spares
    business pay.

    M&P can sometimes be OK but they don't do much in the way of spares as
    opposed to accessories. I have used Lings but the problem there is
    describing what you want to the person on the other end of the phone,
    not 100% reliable and they don't really seem like they're properly set
    up for large scale mail-order.

    What I want is something like for bikes, you 'drill
    down' the web site giving make, year, model, etc. and then it shows
    you the spares they have for various areas of the vehicle.

    Any ideas, recommendations, etc. would be most welcome, I hate wasting
    my time travelling to get spares (and it can be that the spare is
    required to enable the travelling!).

    I have a VF750F that I keep thinking about sorting out, so if you find
    any bits ... otoh, do you want a complete bike?

    Hmm, that's better than the last time I looked I'm sure. Thanks for
    the link, they are somewhat biased towards older models (buy my F-T is
    getting 'older' anyway!).

    But their site search facilities are not very clever are they! You
    don't seem to be able to specify a model and then search for the part
    you want. For VFR750 there's several pages to scroll through tos ee
    if they've got what you want.

    Just type something like "VFR750 oil filter" into the search box.

    Do you want _bike parts_ or _Honda parts_? Small but significant

    Get thee to which
    will give you a link to both David Silver Spares and CMS. Don't know
    if CMS do modern Honda as well, though.
