Seriously? Well, that’s not good.

Partzilla is part of ODN, aka I’ve used them a lot and I’ve always been happy with them. As of this morning, my order showed, “Available Wednesday, October 14, 2020.” Then they e-mailed me and said it was no longer avilable from Suzuki. They didn’t claim they had the had the part in stock, they just couldn’t get it when they tried to order it.

It just demonstrates how parts are drying up for older Japanese bikes, even items you wouldn’t think expect to be a problem. Luckily, I’ve sourced another one from Everett Powersports in Washington State via Ebay — assuming they really do have it in stock. I have a tracking number, so somebody has likely already physically put their hands on the one that’s coming to me.
