Try the bike graveyard in Knysna . I got lots of kle spares from them and they were brilliant to deal with.

Yeah.. I get it, they will try shaft you and get away with it. After they told me twice they not neg, I told them to get stuffed. i'm not paying R1200 for an ignition that has been sitting in a graveyard for how long and may or may not work. In the pic they sent me its full of dust, probably corroded inside the barrel.. they came back to say ok they will let it go for R800 but now that is their best price  :eek7:

I told them to get knotted, I would rather keep looking. Its worth R300 at best, I would even go to R500 to take a chance on something that may or may not work considering I still have to courier it.

there must be someone in CT with one.

I have only replaced vandalized key barrels, never the switch.  Strip it and clean it.  Worst case the contacts have melted into the switch block - still fixable.
If you want to haul ass, you gotta mix gas.
