>> BE CAREFUL if your bike is still in its guarantee period make sure you use only OEM parts and have them installed by authorized mechanics. If you don't do so, you will probably void guarantee.
What about Aftermarket parts??
Aftermarket parts should perform as well as OEM parts but are produced by companies other than original manufacturer(s).
Things to know when buying Aftermarket Motorcycle Parts:
>> MAKE SURE YOUR GUARANTEE PERIOD IS OVER. In many cases, you can VOID your guarantee if you have an aftermarket part installed by an unauthorized mechanic in your machine. I know I said it before, but it's worth repeating; I happened to me! :-(
>> Equivalent aftermarket Suzuki motorcycle parts are normally cheaper than OEM parts. Sometimes up to 70% cheaper!
>> Aftermarket parts can have lower,the same or higher quality than original.
>> When buying aftermarket parts make sure you are getting AT LEAST same quality as OEM part. If possible try to get some reviews about brands and performance. You can do it in Internet, with your favorite mechanic or with fellow riders.
>> If you are looking for high performance parts and devices, you know kind: carbon fiber, titanium, aerospace aluminum parts and gizmos, well you will probably find them as aftermarket motorcycle parts.
OEM or aftermarket motorcycle parts, sooner or later you will be shopping for them...
