Title: good places to buy parts??
Post by: s1120 on December 08, 2018, 03:31:50 PM
Ill start by saying I have no dealers within 3 hours of me..  so most things I get are going to need to come mail order..  I just got my first Guzzi.  A '02 Cal stone, and Im going to need to get some maintenance parts for it. I live in in the northeast of the US. I had poked around on here for any recommendations, but really didnt see any. So what are some good Guzzi parts mail order places???  What about general MC stuff... Ive been out of the motorcycle loop for over a decade, and a lot has changed since then!

For the non brand specific try to go to a local shop if you can. We have a pretty good one here that has done me right many times. It can pay to have shop that knows you!

ebay works ok for some things....brake pads, batteries, tires, etc
best to have exact part number from manual and know exactly what you are looking for...if not stick with the companies listed below that do.

I like the Dealers but they never have the parts in stock so it's 2 hrs out and back along with long wait if I'm willing to risk a phone order.

So I primarily use:

Me and my EV were in Schenectady for a year and a half but moved back last July.  Loved the riding up there, but finding a local shop for even tires was a major pain.

02 Stone, that's a good start, has a few electrical issues but nothing expensive.
I use MGCycle or Harpers but there are several others as well, pretty sure it's faster to buy on line.
Welcome to the forum.

BTW, don't forget to add a tee shirt to your order, both these have really nice long sleeve ones.

Looks like about the same 2 hours for me..  Looks like some nice roads between here, and there though!!  Im thinking there will be a nice summer ride or two to there to check things out!

Jim Hamlin is the dealer you want.  I ride 3 hours up from Jersey on shitty roads!

Shameless plugs for my favorite Moto Guzzi Resources.

Revzilla: I ordered the wrong speed bleeders. NO  hassle return for full refund.  No restocking fee.  Kid on the phone also reminded me that I had store credit from previous purchase so saved me 5 bucks and threw in free shipping.

Harpers MG. 
Curtis knows his stuff.  Help is just a phone call away.

AF1
Spent 15 min on the phone trying to find adapter for my Tom Tom.  Cross checked several models, but no go.  Parts guy made the extra effort.

MPH
Mike Haven can fix anything.

MG Cycles.
Another knowledgeable source for parts.

My local ACE hardware store.
Robert has extensive knowledge of obscure metric fasteners.

My local O'riley Auto Parts.
Good for the common stuff.
Knowledgable counterpeople.

Local motorheads and friends Charlie and Phil.

And of course members of this forum especially my BFAM Dusty-my MC consultant and life coach. :thumb:

Great suggestions. I love ebay for making guzzi guy dirtbag offers.
Staccatto cycle is great for ebay and getting the oil you need.
Also eni north America has a nice store to order by the case.
Guzzitech is expensive but i love looking. Nice quality.
Dave and many others are great knowledge resources.
Pete Ropers posts have helped a lot. Thanks Dave! :thumb:
