Good point. Except I did not go online with the intent of saving money. I mistakenly (naively) assumed that any "Raptor" was a genuine Raptor Yamaha part. I have no problem with the Yamaha dealer except that it would take an hour and a half of my time to drive through the traffic and back. I was saving myself time (which is more precious than money at my age) and aggravation (I get enough of that at work). Hopefully this discussion will help others to follow your advice and make sure they get a genuine Raptor.
