They usually have pretty good deals on most stuff. Even the things that aren't on closeout are cheap enough to make it worth it for me. For some reason the shipping got cheaper with the more stuff I got. I bought a jacket, pants and gloves, two day ups shipping was only $19, and I saved way more than that by not paying sales tax. If I didn't want 2-day shipping, it would have been free too.
When I had my R1, I bought an exhaust off this place on eBay:
My only word of advice is to remember when you are buying online: If you have to return stuff, usually it's going to be on your dime. Even if it isn't, you are still waiting longer than if you bought it locally and they have what you need in stock. Whatever you do, just make sure that you know the return policy of whoever you are buying from (like revzilla, they don't take any returns on items that are marked as "closeout", but other stuff it's okay)
This forum is just taking off, but on other places I have been on people like to whine when others talk about saving money by buying stuff online. The idea is that it has negative effects on local economies, by not spending your money at the local dealership. I won't share my opinions on that because this is a motorcycle forum and not an economics debate.
If the risk/possible hassle, and minor economic impact of buying online are worth saving money to you, then go ahead (I did )
