I've been there, they are pretty fair, and tend to have a lot of NLA parts for older bikes, ect.

If you buy from them then they have platinum for sale and if you are looking to sell then what you have is worthless.

A friend was looking for some hood/dash parts for an Polaris XC and paid almost new retail price. And another buddy had a few ski-doo complete 600 engine and he was offering next to nothing for them.

I have been there before. They wanted way to much $$ for what I needed. I ended up just buying new parts for about the same price.
Before you waste a trip, you might want to call ahead for pricing.

I tried to get a taillight for a cbr600 many years ago, wanted 80% of list for one that wasent even an exact fit. Would have had to rework to bracket for it. Great guys I'm sure.

www.slickssalvage.com I always found them to be a bit over priced if you weren't to lazy to find one else where.

Snowmobile Salvage in Mt. Pleasant is much better on pricing, and has 4x the parts of Slicks. They will answer the phone now, but not when they have a room full of people waiting to be serviced.
