Sorry no stock, 6 weeks
« on: February 19, 2021, 08:56:55 am »
Anyone ordered any parts from a dealer recently ? Reading about all the waiting on stock threads I was wondering if it is worth while getting a genuine clutch cable and trusting their 3-6 weeks or just getting one made locally ? What is lead times like getting parts from Japan ?

I was told 3-4 weeks for a simple part, which should actually always be in stock at the dealer.  ::)

Got a client now waiting for Yamaha part ex Japan.............they warned the client that there is a
6 -8 weeks delay time. 
Suppose if they warn you before taking your order, it is fair... :sip:

 :sip: Triumph 800 sprockets and chain 6-8 weeks at Triumph CT and an eye watering price. To be payed in advance.  But it is nice to at least have a dealer in the Cape. :3some:

Why would you put dealer sprockets etc on a bike?

A sprocket & chain set for my XR at the dealers were over R5000, whereas you can get a DiD chain & JT sprockets at R3k. Then you also get to play with the gearing.
Bikes:
2014 KTM 390 Duke. Had it for 8 months and 2 engines later, good riddance.
2012 BMW R1200GS Triple Black: Had it for 10 months. Sold for a faster bike
2015 BMW S1000XR: Had it for 2 and a half years.
2018 BMW S1000XR: Bike so nice I bought it twice! my 2nd one.

 :sip: I am just struggling to find decent sprockets at the few places I tried. They all showed me these sprockets that looks like it was stamped out of a big piece of metal plate.

If it is for the KLX ask for the 300 cable, it's a few inches longer.

Dunno where you are in GP, sidetrack, but if you need a cable made, try Martin Peach in Bordeaux, Randburg.

Ok will check problem this cable has a crimped metal bend and adjuster in it, just my luck nothing can be simple. Existing sleeve is not reusable

You can also try Anropa Cables in town or Cable Craft near the Airport.

Your main problem is getting spares from Japan instead of Austria  :P    Austrian stuff comes in every 2 weeks. :biggrin:

This is a growing problem, even with car manufacturers, and the worse the economy gets, the less parts dealers will carry.

Every two weeks several of these old Chinese fishing vessels dump heaps of orange parts on the KZN coastline. And still they are out of stock often. Gaan woes in n KTM workshop.
