I hear a lot of advice on avoiding shitty Chinese parts, but how do I avoid it? I am in western Panama, about half way between Panama City and San Jose, CR. I have a Yamaha XT250. When I needed brake shoes, the local Yamaha dealer quoted me $110 for a set. I found Chinese ones for $12. I needed a battery, the local Yamaha dealer quoted me $238!! I got a Chinese one for $35. The local Yamaha dealer wants $15 for an oil filter, Chinese ones about $5. I don't mind going Chinese for these kinds of parts, put what about when I need critical things, like chain and sprockets, or bearings? Is there any answer other tan buying over the 'net and paying shipping and customs??
