Did someone call for a crash-rebuild expert?
Well, not expert per se, but experienced.
First, I check out Ebay. There's also a motorcycle junkyard near Indianapolis called Cycle-Recycle
(motorcycle, not bicycle). Last, I use bike-specific forums because people are parting out all the time.
To be honest, my order of preference is the forums, then Ebay, then the junkyards, but there's little rhyme or reason. You can actually do some comparison shopping this way.
For the bike-specific forum, just type in "ninja ex250r" into your friend and mine, Google,
and start looking through the results. The very first one is a great example, though I'm really surprised to not see a Yahoo Group for the bike.
And aren't you glad you don't own one of the really expensive bikes, like a GSXR or R6? Just think how much more upset you'd be if you'd crashed one of those costly suckers
