For example, the front light cover is sold 2005 bahts in Thailand.
It is equivalent to 58$.
The above seller sells it for 90$

I've bought from him previously with grom parts. I didn't have an issue but at the same times as more parts come out to different vendors I'm sure prices will be adjusted

I am pretty sure he is just ordering them from thailand , shipping them to his shop then reshipping it out. That would be why there is a price difference. But currently this is our only option.

I was looking at some z drag bars are you ordering those risers to bring them closer also? will they bring them 2 inches closer?

I wanted the headlight grill but 80$ + 50$ of shipping... it begins to be too much

Closer doesn't matter to me. I am ordering them just to raise the drag bar slightly so it isn't interfearing with anything else. It looks like they only move them about an inch forward.

I ordered the engine crash bar from this site. I got an email about a week later with a tracking number, but the tracking number doesn't work with any of the carriers. So who knows when I will get it. Not a big fan of their customer service.

I live in Thailand and already there are so many aftermarket parts and custom shops to choose from. I have already planned to add accessories and customise my Rebel. There are some fantastic looking achievements here, the Thai's are very good at crafts.
I'm gonna hold back for a few months as more and more aftermarket parts are manufactured & probably cheaper than the Honda endorsed H2C stuff. I don't want to spend a load of dosh then suddenly see an OMG" wish I waited for that.

The H2C Accessories are available at all the Honda Bigwing stores, but I'm sure there will be a ton of stuff coming soon to the US.

We are fortunate to be able to get these bikes on sale here more or less first, and at a cheaper price than the Uk or US and ABS as standard, However; the rebel is now getting on short supply in Thailand as I think the shipping is now concentrated on the US and Europe. There is now a 2 month waiting in Thailand for both 300/500 unless your willing to travel perhaps hundreds of miles to get that odd red/black, grey one your looking for at some of the smaller Honda franchise dealers.

I read about the shops there that redo the bike seats and can add more cushion and reshape them quite cheaply. And the ton of parts in Thailand makes me a bit jealous.

But I am noticing a lot of places are selling chinese parts and putting their own name one them and charging a ton more. K-speed is one of those companies. Which is quite sad because some of their builds looked nice.

Yes there is a lot of Chinese knock offs and poor quality items from China, but you have to take your time to source from trusted businesses and read plenty of reviews & feedback before buying the items you want.
In the case of K-speed, you maybe right but they seem to have a fairly good reputation with most of their branches.
Don't forget these cheaper parts cannot compare with the Honda main dealer ones, so get what you pay for in general.

Well I ordered crash bars from this site back on the 16th. On the 19th I got an email with a tracking number that doesn't work. Nose, it's the 31st and still nothing. I'm starting to wonder if I'll get my order.
