Finding the right aftermarket supplier for your Harley

Finding the right aftermarket supplier for your Harley

Posted by bodypartsusa.com on

For those of you with any experience with Harley Davidson motorcycles, whether you own one, used to own one, work with them, or are simply very interested in them, one thing that you will no doubt be well aware of, is the fact that these machines, as brilliant as they are, can cost a small fortune to maintain and upgrade. OEM, or Original Equipment Manufacturer, parts and accessories are considered by many to be vastly overpriced, with many people believing that, in actual fact, the only thing you’re paying for is the iconic Harley logo. If however, you don’t wish to take out a second mortgage on your home just to be able to afford a new set of road star hard bags or fairings for your Harley, you may wish to explore the aftermarket route instead. Aftermarket parts and accessories cost much, much less than OEM parts, and they’re also readily available, and are incredibly well made, providing of course, that you choose the right aftermarket supplier. Looking for a top of the line aftermarket supplier? – Then take a look at these handy tips.

Find out where they are based – First and foremost, one of the most important things you need to consider when it comes to your Harley Davidson aftermarket parts and accessories, is where the company and indeed the factory, is based. Generally you want to avoid companies that are based overseas in slightly less developed countries, as the factories and the materials they use will be less efficient. Different countries have different quality control checks and protocols in place, so for factories based in, say India for example, you aren’t always guaranteed the best products. Ideally you want companies and factories based in the USA, as you know for sure that the products are going to be top quality, due to the strict laws and quality control protocols.

Look at their reviews – Nowadays, thanks to the internet, you can find out a great deal of information about virtually any company in operation, by simply looking online and reading reviews. For those of you on the lookout for road star hard bags or other Harley parts and accessories, before you commit to buying, first take the time to read several reviews and testimonials, to gauge just how efficient a company really is.

Check out the materials and what’s on offer – Finally, the last thing you can do to help find an efficient aftermarket supplier is to check out the materials of the products, and exactly what they have to offer. Avoid companies that use cheap and flimsy materials as the products are more likely to break and be dangerous. Look for companies with a large selection of stock, offering materials such as fiberglass or carbon fibre.
