Buying Parts

Attention Vendors. Please email robert@rabtech.com any instruction manuals you may have for your products. They will be added to the FILEBASE tab for members to access.
  • Recently I came across a website called CHEAP CYCLE PARTS. They have what appears to be a complete list of every part in regards to the Slingshot and other Polaris products. The drawings are very detailed and appear to be from the Polaris parts manual. Prices are posted as well as the OEM part number. Have any of you out there in Slingshotsville had experience with this vender or am I just spinning my wheel and everyone knows about them?

  • I haven't seen that site, but I've bought off a couple from this list : Shop lost a bunch of bolts/screws, and Babbitt's isn't carrying them anymore. Where can I find them other than a Polaris dealer?


    Pricing and shipping costs vary on them all, and one is not always the cheapest. I've used Part Shark and Cycle Parst Nation both

  • They are a good source. Like I said before, copy and paste the part number into a search engine before you buy anything. I search many sites this way to find the best deal. The site is good because you can get the Polaris part number from them as a cross referencing too. I look on eBay and amazon and any other suggested sites that pop up.


    If you’re looking for anything that touches the motor look at these GM sites.

    They will be way cheaper than Polaris.

  • Prices are the same for three vendors as far as I can tell for the rear swing arm parts. (Was checking the bearing prices. This will be the 5th set in 25K)

    I guess it comes down to shipping discounts and timely service.

    Conspiracy theory. Could they all be using the same warehouse, parts origin? Two of them use identical parts list and drawings and pricing as far as I checked.

    CCP has a different phone number from CPN but both sites have similar web creation style.

    Maybe we should call Nancy Pelosi and have the Dem's investigate. I'm sure Trump is tied into it somehow.

  • You might be able to cross reference the bearing numbers. Other than from Polaris.


    Everything is a conspiracy.

    the true conspiracy is convincing the people to believe in conspiracies - keeps the people occupied with misdirection

  • Part numbers are the same for both sites. Appears they are using Polaris #'s. I smell a rat. Could Polaris be back dooring their own warehouse on separate sites, Mmm? Heh guys this stuff is tongue and cheek, just having some fun.


    I have crossed the numbers and found a Japanize as well as China cross. Haven't found a USA (USA Timken) or German cross. ref.. Guess I might if I put enough effort into it. It just pisses me off that they have such a high failure rate.

  • I have bought parts for my quads from Cheap Cycle Parts for years. I know nothing about the distribution of the Polaris parts but some resellers are up to 25% less than Polaris on the exact same part. Check them all because some have lower prices on different items than the others.

    I wouldn’t use anything but German or American ....the other stuff is just cheap crap...


    Which makes me wonder who makes the Polaris bearings?

  • I have used cheap cycle parts a couple times just out of spite of going to the Polaris dealer near me that is terrible. The only issue with cheap cycle parts is they typically have long lead times on things meaning they don't have the part on the shelf and they're just ordering but are getting a good discount and are keeping prices lower than most of the dealers. I get 10-20% off from our Polaris dealer that I don't care for and cheap cycle parts still beats them usually.


    However, since I hate our dealership and like to support people I know, I have been buying what little OEM parts we use from Scott Riley at Sport Rider in Wisconsin. The pricing is good and the customer service is always great. I would even pay full retail on parts because the pricing is good and Scott has always treated me very well. We met in Maggie this past year and we talked a lot and even borrowed tools from one another that we didn't have. He's a good guy. I have no stake in the game promoting him but I support good people who treat me well and he usually has the part I need sitting on the shelf. No idea if they have parts on their site but the address is https://sportriderinc.com/ and the phone number there is (715) 834-0244.


    The other thing I found with checp cycle parts is that some of the super seeded part number aren't always there. I would use https://slingshot.polaris.com/…/#/s/POL/T15AAS%2fAAP//1/ which is Polaris's site for proper part numbers and then call Sport Rider to order it.

  • It almost always pays to check multiple sites when buying parts. Just because a site offers a good price on one part doesn't mean someone else won't beat them on a different part. It may even pay to split your order across multiple sites to get the lowest overall price. Some sites offer free shipping over $99 or so and that can also make a difference.

    When researching prices, these are the sites I usually check -

    https://www.cheapcycleparts.co…/polaris_motorcycle/parts

    https://www.partshark.com/oemp…/polaris_motorcycle/parts

    https://www.ronniesmailorder.c…/polaris_motorcycle/parts

    https://www.cyclepartsnation.c…/polaris_motorcycle/parts

    https://www.powersportswarehou…/polaris_motorcycle/parts

    https://www.powerpartsplus.com…/polaris_motorcycle/parts

    Some of these sites appear to use the same web design, so my guess is they are using a generic platform offered by Polaris and they also seem to have similar, if not identical, pricing.

    If you know the equivalent GM part, you can buy from a number GM parts sites at significant savings. I recently bought a brand new throttle body for my Slingshot, which it now looks like I didn't really need. At least I got it for under $100. Anybody need a Slingshot TB?

  • Look at the part numbers......and at the double price mark up.....



    A lot of the parts are already GM part numbers....
