Where do you buy your maintenance parts?

I've been reading nearly every post in this sub-site and there is SO much good info for the D-I-Y crowd. Fully plan on doing my own 1000 mile service (and anything else I can).

Do you guys who do this buy all your little parts (o-rings, oil filters, etc.) from your local stealership or is there a preferred place online? I know when I need these parts for doing service on my BMW there is a great website that offers complete 'kits' that have everything you need to do specific maintenance tasks. Makes things very simple to order because you know you will have everything you need.

Anything like that for the Road Glide crowd?

I just usually order my stuff from amsoil.I like it,and tough to beat dealer pricing.

I'm not aware of any place that sells that kinda stuff in kit form.

I buy from multiple places online (google is your friend)

But if I need it fast, I go to a local small business bike shop

I also agree with the above mention of amsoil, damn good oil

If it feels good, Do It!

I buy my motor oil and gear lube from the local autoparts store. I buy the formula plus and k&n filter at the dealer if they have them. With the "family" discount i can get the filter just as cheap or cheaper then ordering them plus it keeps me tight with the parts guys.

I buy everything from the dealership except for my oil. I buy my oil by the case from European Motor Works in Hawthorne, CA. I use Brad Penn oil which is difficult to find.

Bazinga punk! Now we're even!

I looked on line for that combo and only saw the Redline oil, funnel, hat etc. Is there a special that includes the gaskets and filter too?

As a side note I wonder why they include 5 engine oil quarts and only 1 for the primary when it holds 1 qt + 6 ounces. Looks like they'd include 2 quarts of primary and only 4 of engine oil since the engine only needs 3.5 for a change. By the way, if anyone has a Cycle Gear location nearby, they carry Redline products, pretty much the same price as several on line sites.

You only need I quart for primary re and re if however you are taking the primary cover off completely, you'll need the extra 6 oz

The K&N filters with the nut on the end are so easy to loosen and tighten with a socket on an extension. There is not a lot of space to get a filter wrench on the oil filter, esp with an oil cooler. I buy them from Amazon and if you do it yourself the K&N makes life a lot easier.

I get Mobil1 VTwin locally from KOI Auto Parts at a very good price and I buy Spectro 6 Speed Tran Fliud and Spectro Promary lube from whatever online source I find with a good price. Gaskets, pick them up from local dealer as needed.
