Having a vintage motorcycle is certainly flashy and great, but learning how to buy vintage Suzuki motorcycle parts can be tricky. With a little time and patience, buying parts can be easy, local and very cost effective.
What you will need:
- Patience (Finding any vintage item is going to take a lot of time. You will need to fully exhaust your research before a sell comes up, but the cost will be worth it.)
- Access to Suzuki dealer
- Internet access
- Newspaper classifieds
- Call whoever sold you your Suzuki motorcycle. They might have insider information about parts, guides and locations that can make your search a lot easier. If you're looking to collect parts, look for sellers around the area.
- Call a dealer that specializes in Suzuki motorcycles. They do not need to focus only on vintage Suzuki motorcycle parts because some of these dealers have the ability to look up hard to get parts.
- Use the internet. Some of the best deals are online. Ask if you can do a local pick up with your purchase; sometimes the cost of shipping will be too high to see any real savings.
- Look for local advertisements in your newspapers or shoppers that are selling used Suzuki motorcycle parts.
Things to remember:
- Make sure you know your part first. Sometimes ordering a part is not planned, you just happened to be at the right place at the right time. Knowing exactly what you need can help eliminate potential wasteful issues.
- Check with your dealer first. They will always have the information. If they purchased the Suzuki motorcycle from someone else, you will be able to trace your steps.
- Be patient. Owning a vintage Suzuki motorcycle is great, but due to the rarity of the parts, it is going to take a while.
Once you find your parts, hire any specialist to help you with repairs. Don't undergo anything if you lack expertise as this might damage your vintage Suzuki motorcycle.
