How do I get CORRECT part #s for my bike?

Postby thesnowgod » Wed Jun 29, 2005 9:24 am

Ever order a part from the dealer and find the guy behind the counter ordered the wrong one? It's frustrating and leads to longer downtimes for your scoot.

Follow this tip and get the right part everytime.

it's really simple. (despite the beads of sweat coming off the forehead of the dork looking up your parts.)

1.) go here: http://www.ronayers.com/fiche/getyear.c ... upid=31640

2.) select the year of your scooter.

3.) find the parts and write the CORRECT numbers down yourself!!

4.) go to dealer and tell them, "Hey.....toolbag.....i want these, regardless of how much you're going to rape me for them."

*NOTE* I always stick my list in a ziplock baggie, because the parts-tards are always so amazed that you know more than they do, that they have a bad habit of drooling, including a blank, targetless stare, subsequently ruining your hand written list of parts and thir respective numbers. DON'T LET THIS HAPPEN TO YOU!

EXPECT A LOOK OF UTTER AMAZEMENT, SINCE YAMAHA BELIEVES THAT THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES THAT KNOW THIS WISE AND SECRET INFORMATION!!!

5.) go back when they (finally) call your house, apartment, trailer, carboard box, (insert here:_________________) cause your parts are in. some dealers may have your parts in stock.

6.) go home with the RIGHT parts the FIRST time. you're happy, the wife's happy, the world's happy!


OR ORDER THEM FROM RON AYERS...
These guys are great!! They're shipping is cheap and their parts prices are competitive. AND THEY SEND YOU YOUR STUFF QUICKLY!!

this isn't limited to YAMAHA, but works equally for HONDA, KAWASAKI AND SUZUKI. YAMUDA IS THE EXCEPTION.....!!!

The next time you feel we're "too preachy" in here, do me a favor and call the familes of the people in my signature. Make sure you tell them that too. Then close your browser and never come back here again.

Don't cry over how they died. Smile at how they lived.
Thanks to you all, I know I'll never be riding alone.
