Where to buy cheap engine parts

Hey Guys,

The shop that did my oil change when I first bought the bike put the oil filter in there backwards....300 km later the engine seized. It was a cash deal so I have no prove it was done there and I'm not sure if the guy is going to give me anything. I can't take a bat to him either because I'd loose my job.

Question to you is. I'll need a crank and rod, piston/rings plus various bearings. Where is there the cheapest place to buy all this stuff???

I have had great success with www.hondaparts-direct.com. They seem to be cheaper than everywhere else I looked and the service was great.


I also have found Honda direct great for factory OEM parts. They are cheaper then at the service honda site. And they use the same Microfiche shots. Go with HDLparts.com free shipping after $100 also.

      I have this issue several times and cannot seem to figure it out. The four clutch spring bolts are the weakest bolts I have ever come across. I am not sure what the torque specs are, have the shop manual, have searched online and I can only guess it's around 4 ft/lbs. I have been told 8 and they seem to break every time around 7.
      What is the proper torque for these bolts?
      Should I find stronger bolts? I would still stick to the proper torque, but feel as if these things are butter.

      Prior to reassembling the case, I tested the shifting and it seems the center fork attached to the shaft seems to stick at the steepest section of the drum. I have cleaned and tested all forks and surfaces for smooth movement, tried it with silicone and oil. With very little help, it seems to shift ok, but without the help, it binds.
      Can I assume that once it is together the oil lines are attached and oil is added to the case, the binding will stop? I have tested every scenario short of assembling the entire motor.
      Should I be able to successfully test the shifting with the case apart?
