I have learned a little bit not to trust kdealer. Yes, I may be a canceled item and nla. But occasionally, it is still in Stock in other countries warehouse system.
Case in point. RR steering stem bearing. I had a new set, sold it to a friend so his bike could be raced at IOM classic TT race last year. They were in Stock. When I went to reorder, they were cancelled. No backorder. None in Japan. Canada still had a set. A friend ordered two and sold me his.
Not that long ago those brackets were available. Phone a friend in other countries.

At this point I don't know anyone in other countries into motorcycles enough to pull that off for me. I hope to be lucky enough to find one from someone here. If not I'll make a suitable part until I do find one.

Our shop subscribes to lightspeed shop management software as well. It allows me to search other dealers and no luck their either.

Yes I use lightspeed too.
I am fortunate to have forged relationships with a great deal of people in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Scotland, Great Britain, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Netherlands, and a few more that I trade with in high race kit /works and rare unavailable parts. Over time this has paid off over and over. I have also made great friends, met fantastic people (and some dickheads, but it's the cost of trading when you need something some times), and been a rewarding if costly experience.

I apologize dude.

I figured since they listed it as active inventory they would have it.

I checked my parts and I just have an extra pad without the bracket.

Cheers.

I just checked with a contact that I have with Kawasaki Canada and he says the number is still available. Would take a couple weeks for him to get it. PM me if interested.

exactly.....thanks for helping out. Glad you got my point. Kdealer tells us that its cancelled and NLA in our country, and nla from Japan, it doesn't mean it isn't in another country stocking whse.

Thanks for helping out another brother.

Old thread but I'm looking looking for one too, I was able to score a cheap zx7r tail. If they are unavailable is there a solution anyone has figured out?

I will check Kawasaki Canada again next week. I was able to source 3 last time. Maybe if they are available, I should stick up? LOL.

How close is that bracket to a RR bracket. I know the RR bracket is also not available this is for my own information as down the road fabricating one up for a K model.
