Look to the aftermarket: You can usually get a better aftermarket part for considerably less than the original equipment (OE) part. We can think of dozens of examples: brake pads, bulbs, cables, chains, clutch plates, fasteners, fenders, foot controls, handlebar, headlight, ignition coils, mirrors, pipes, saddles, suspension pieces, tires, turn signals, etc. For example, a chromed handlebar lever from Motion Pro costs substantially less than the OE part, and can even be had with small skulls replacing the ball ends. In many instances your dealer's parts department can steer you toward such options. But you may have to do some research on your own or ask them to check for an aftermarket piece. If you do opt for the OE part, be sure you get what you pay for. Some dealers will sell a less-pricey aftermarket part as the OE item, and run up a fatter profit. If you pay for the original Honda part, it should come in Honda packaging.
