I've been following several threads recently about the drastic price changes for Honda OEM parts, particularly side covers and mirror housings.
Is there some type conspiracy to jack up prices, do the price increases have anything to do with Goldwings being built in Japan again, or what?

Sure am glad I was able to get a mirror housing for $43 shipped, but that was 3 years ago. Today, you are looking at $150 range, depending on vendor.

I'm like you. Trying to determine what caused the change? Could it be the new 2012 body uses different parts now so the older versions are no longer produced in volume? Whatever the cause it's poor of Honda to establish this image for product support. I think they're milking this cow til it drops...

Same here. I need a new left mirror housing for my 06 black GL 1800. Lowest price I have found is Honda Parts Nation for $114.02.

I'd jump on that one--before they get the message to increase their prices.

They have to pay for all that fuel to ship it or fly it over here.

Welcome to the results of high fuel bills.
