Need parts, new to KLRs

Hello folks, new KLR owner and member here.

I am buying a used 09 klr and it needs some work, in wondering where is a good site to find the parts I need at reasonable prices.

I need a new sprocket and chain, I've seen some on eBay for $50 but I don't want to go cheap if it's dangerous, but if they will work and be safe I'm fine with getting them.

Also I would like to get new plastics since the old owner messed them up and I would like to know where to get those aswell

Chain and sprocket sets are available here for a decent price: https://www.rockymountainatvmc.com/p...d-X-Ring-Chain

No KLR plastics are available aftermarket though you can use a variety of front fenders (KTM etc.) I don't like the common supermoto fender and run these on my KLR's: https://www.polisport.com/en/off-roa...id=279&pid=178

Other than that, www.eaglemanufacturing.com for all kinds of KLR goodies. If/When you plan on upgrading the suspension, www.motocd.com

Thank you, it sucks that I can't find any more of the plastics, mine are a bit banged up and I would like to replace them.

Where can I find the OEM plastics?

If/When I need OEM Pats I have found these folks to be reasonably priced.

Make sure your order is over $149 to get free shipping as that can really make a big difference.

I believe it is always a good Idea to get to know your local or closest Kawasaki Dealership. They are only trying to make a living also.

I've tried that locally. The challenge is that their inventory is practically nonexistent and they double net the prices. The result is that it takes just as long to get a part from them as I can get it on-line, and I can get it for 10-20% below list price instead of double the list price, and it gets delivered to my door instead of making two trips (one to order and the second to pick it up) and there is no sales tax. So in the end; they're inconvenient, slow and expensive. What exactly am I paying for by "supporting" them? I'd be willing to pay list price and sales tax, but they're not going to get my business by carrying zero inventory at exorbitant pricing.

Bike Bandit is a good source for OEM parts ... IMO Most dealers handle to many different bikes to stock what I need. Of course the are always willing to order the part and charge me shipping. If I have to pay shipping I'll have it dropped off on my doorstep ... Kinda' funny too ... I've never had a Harley dealer ever charge me shipping even if it were a 2 cent screw ...

i buy lots of specialty products online but when it comes to factory parts or common stuff like tires, tubes, lube, filters, etc. I buy them from my dealer. I could probably get the stuff cheaper elsewhere but I don't care; he's been really good to me over the years.

2 cents,,
