    Trustworthy Honda Parts Source?

    Hey All,

    I need to order some stock Honda CrossRunner parts to have shipped to the US.  Can anyone recommend a reliable overseas parts source I could use to ship some parts to me in the US?  I was going to order from Bike-Parts-Honda.com, but I contacted them with a question last week and still haven't heard back, so I'm not too comfortable with them.

    Thanks in advance for any recommendations!

    Search for Fowlers on line store (https://us.fowlersparts.co.uk) for numerous makes. You can drill down thro the Crossrunner parts to individual parts as shown on the diagrams. I have used them and been happy with the service.

    +1 for Fowlers. They are reliable in my experience. I have used them both for parts for my Crossrunner and my Triumph ( now sold, as I’ve just bought an Nc750x to go with my Crossie).

    I used to have to travel to the US 4-5 times a year for work and would pre-order & pay for parts for my bikes (Honda, Yamaha & Ducati) from a local multi franchise dealer near our office as they were way cheaper than in the UK.  Have you tried ordering them locally referencing the part numbers ?

    Also, what year is the bike? Remember, the 2011 - 2015 Crossrunners were based on the 2006 - 2013 VFR800 (6th Gen or VTEC amongst other known names), so depending on the parts yr after, they may be available locally anyway from the ST version.

    Thank you all for the parts source recommendations!  Much appreciated!!

    I have tried to order the parts here in the US.  Dealerships have told me they don't have access to the parts.  That was a couple years ago though.  I do have the part numbers, so I'll try again just in case something has changed.

    Thanks for the intel regarding the 2011-2015 CrossRunner being based on the 2006-2013 VFR800.  I was assuming that to be the case based on my own observations and research, but didn't know that for sure.  I appreciate the reassurance on that!

    FYI; what I'm attempting to do is replace the passenger footrest brackets on my VFR800 with brackets from a 2011-2015 CrossRunner.  The stock VFR brackets have an appendage to accommodate the optional hard bags that make them look (for lack of a better term) stupid.  The CrossRunner brackets look much better.

    Thanks again for all of the input/help!

    The Crossrunner models are 11-14 and 15+ (small changes at 17).

    FYI

    Bike-Parts-Honda.com  are actually part of the Chelsea Motorcycle Group (CMG), been around about 20 years. They have a Suzuki/Honda dealership and have 7 stores in west London.

    Strange they didn't get back to you.

    Any how the other recommendations are all good !  :002:
