Default Where do you guys get your oil change supplies?

Seems like everywhere I go to here in SD doesn't have drain plugs or washers for my bike. Oil seems mega overpriced. Wal-Mart doesn't have the Rotela T6 that I've been wanting to try. For somewhere with ideal riding conditions pretty much year round San Diego seems like a bit of a parts desert.

Anywhere online you guys can recommend? Or even in town, I'd like to change the oil today but that might not be possible.

I just type in the part # for the filter and do a Google search. Whoever has the lowest price, including shipping, at the time gets my business. I usually buy 10 filters at a time. Sometimes shipping is free if you spend at least a certain minimum. Sometiems the lowest total price isn't on the first page of a Google search result.

I use the same method for oil. Honda GN4 10W-40 oil and I usually buy 4 gallons or whatever it takes above the minimum dollar amount required for free shipping.

I go to the local honda dealer for filters [and GN4 when I used it]. I've never replaced a drain bolt and I've replaced the washer once in 7yrs and almost 65,000 miles. I don't use rotella but they sell it pretty much everywhere that offers oil.

Cool, thanks for the tips guys! I really want to change the drain plug because it's a little beat looking from the PO.
