The place where I buy my parts is great -- friendly, knowledgeable, willing to spend as much time as necessary to identify a part, etc.
BUT. Everytime I need a part I'm batting like 999 out of a 1000 to have to wait a week to ten days to get it in. I don't expect everything to be stocked just for me and the one other guy that rides the same bike I do (97 ZX-11) but this is really starting to screw me up.
Does anyone have any advice? My engine is all over my garage floor, it's PRIME riding weather and its the end of the season and I'm so antsy I'm going nuts!!! Im not a mechanical genius, so I dont always know what parts I'm going to need before I start -- either I'm diagnosing, or maybe I just need to see the situation before I can determine what I need but getting halfway into a job and then having to wait a week+ for parts is really getting me down. What do you all (who ride older bikes) do ???
Can anyone steer me in the right direction? "Buy a newer bike dude" isn't what I'm looking for !!!
