eekeek That's the other thing, when you can find the part, it's usually super expensive. If this were new I'd expect to pay less than $200 but used they're getting $324 now. I imagine that will only go up.

Sorry about the rant and bitching but it's frustrating.

i already have an email into them. they don't show pictures of it powered up. if its got missing segments off the lcd, then its not worth even 1/10th of what they are asking... but you're not kidding... the price gouging is bloody insane....
as for banggood pieces and parts, goes for pretty much the cheap stuff on ebay as well, you can prolly add it and maybe get them to work with the front wheel speed sensor or the gps unit, but you lose everything that is communicated over the network, so engine codes, low fuel light, neutral, temp, etc... its the same problem you have if you try to go to dakota digital, and at least with them, you can program the miles into the speedo on the first use.. that is whats gonna kill the resale right now on the XR, because a brand new speedo puts the miles at 0000000, the title automatically gets branded as "Salvage - True Mileage Unknown (TMU)", so the easiest way to deal with it, find some shady POS to steal it out of the garage and destroy it, drive it into the river, or "accidentally puncture the gas line while changing the air filter" so that it drips petrol onto a hot engine and wait for it to catch fire.... hmmm decisions decisions.... anyone in the central NY area wanna make a quick $500??

My curiosity got the better of me so I looked it up. $234 new. Of course; that's if they were still available. That price is more in line of what I would consider normal. Funny how anything associated with motorcycles and boats are so much more expensive than cars.

Hold on to your handlebars; it's going to be a bumpy ride.

yep, on backorder till October.. but when i called in April they said it was on backorder until July....

but if you think that is lunacy, check out the seller's response for that speedo... so over $300 for a part that may or may not work and could have the same problems?
seriously?!?!?! WTFF?

sorry for the thread-hijack

yep already did..... and lost.....
the lcd is shot just like the one on mine now... tis prolly why the cross roads was crashed in the first place. lol only way to get some $$ back out of it. so yep, its going back... already contacted them and they sent the return label...

anyone know any shady people who might want to make $500.....

.........and now back to the Rocket 3 Classic.


My new ignition switch should be in Thursday so the R3 will finally be back on the road. Mine has the old style
ignition and the new one has plugs to convert it to the new style.

I've added a new intake and have a tune ready to load as soon as it's alive again.

Pulled the back wheel yesterday on my KP to replace the 11 yo Harley tire with a Shinko. I didn't realize it was such a pain to pull the rear wheel on these. Turns out the brake pads were down to a dime's thickness so the timing was good. I guess I'll swap out the front pads too.

Baby's gonna have new shoes and new pads. Front tire was replace recently too. I doubt the Shinko's get the same mileage as the previous tires.

Next on the docket; going back to the homemade Atom bomb mufflers on the XC and a handle bar change. Gonna try the Victory brand apes.
