Harley Davidson Sportster Parts

Updated on September 22, 2010

Where to Find Harley Davidson Sportster Parts

The first place for the cheapest Harley Davidson Sportster motorcycle parts you can check is a junkyard, however these (especially motorcycle or Harley Davidson specific ones) can be hard to find locally.

Next try motor factor dealers. These are where the garages go to purchase parts for Harley Davidson Motorcycles and although public prices are slightly higher than trade prices you will be getting them at a distribution source and therefore can make a saving.

You can also try your local garages if you can not find motor factors. Although the garages will order from local motor factors or their preferred online source.

Next you can try specialist Harley Davidson companies online. There are many specialist companies especially in the USA who advertise and keep their specialty to one brand of motorcycle. These are usually the best ones to go for as they are more efficient in finding what you need and more likely to have it in stock as opposed to providing you with a generic solution (rubber engine mount - 1 size fits all option).

Finally you can try the manufacturer (Harley) themselves. However this is usually the most expensive way. They can get the parts for most of their older models.

Other Places to find Harley Davidson Sportster Parts

If you still can not find the Harley Davidson Sportster motorcycle parts you require new then there fortunately are second hand options. Whilst rubber parts tend to fade over the years and are not a recommended 2nd hand buy, metal parts do last providing they haven't been over stressed and used as designed.

A better idea is to search on owners forums. The chances are their is a lot of enthusiasts for the sportster model and someone around the world somewhere will have the part spare and happily send it on for the right price.A gain you might have to wait a bit, but something always turns up, put out wanted ad's and you might get lucky quickly. To do this go to and type in Harley Davidson Sportster and try adding words like 'club', 'owners' or 'society' on the end to find the owners forum for your specific model.

eBay is another option but it can be unreliable and you may be waiting months for the right part and even then may get outbid at the last moment.
