Where do you guys shop for parts??

Where is a good kawasaki retailer? A place that stocks both Factory OEM stuff, Tires, and aftermarket goodies.

I have an 87 zx-10 which is rare,,, but its under going a lot of changes.

1.) two new rear tires
2.) New rear rotor and pads
3.) new side and lower fairings
4.) Vance Hines exhaust 4-1
5.) Stage 3 jet kit with K&N filters
6.) corbin seat

for tires ive been told metzlers are best bang for the buck. I plan to take the bike to a local track day, but i dont want to push it hard. once i get it restored.. she has to stay in top running condition-- dont want any accidents.

The dealer I bought the bike from are offering me 15% off all parts I order through them for the next year. At the moment thats the best deal i know of. My friend says you can find tires really cheap on the internet... i just dont know where.

15% isn't bad, but I would still look around. How much will they charge for labor to install said parts? Just curious.
For my stuff, I buy most from Parts411, Motorcycle Accessory Warehouse (MAW), and occasionally Dennis Kirk. Leathers I will buy from New Enough and all helmets have and will be bought from Helmet Harbor....great guys, great prices, and they really know their lids. Most all stuff for the bike is from Parts411, though. Another GREAT source is ebay.....I'm serious. It will be hard to find for your bike, but look nonetheless. Good luck!
