hey, so where is everyone getting OEM parts? fired up my XR for the first time this season on Sunday and the entire display on the speedo is out - just a pretty blue box. I called my local former Victory dealer along with any that I could find on the web locally and supposedly they aren't showing a speedo in stock from Polaris. VDO says they are showing more than 100 available. I tried the old Honda East Toledo (missing Paulie right now) and crickets chirping...
So where the hell can one get a new speedo for a 2010 CrossRoads?
i might tear into this weekend and see if I can't get the damn thing fixed myself, but I have a feeling that its going to be fubar'ed after I get the clear cover off and in order to have a back up plan, i want to have someplace I can place an order and not have this sitting laid up for too long....
TIA!
:devil cheers

I had the same problem with my speedo and I had no trouble finding a new replacement from the internet vendors.

thank you sir!
cheers
When I did the rebuild on my bike I bought everything that didn't come from Lloydz from Cheap Cycle Parts. Good pricing, fast service... I was very happy.
New engine and transmission. All new pretty much everything internal from bearings to cam chains and tensioners to gaskets and O-rings... and a 116" kit... about $3900 in parts. I thought that was pretty good for all I bought.

I bought 9 k worth of parts from DonWood .... the websites were easy to navigate but communication from overseas was a no-no from the start ...

I have used Don Woods in Ohio several times. Most of the time I find them cheaper on parts. The big thing almost all the dealers do is hit you hard on Freight Charges. I normally compute the parts from 4-5 of the cheapest dealers to get the cheapest. None of them really are that cheap but it depends on how bad you want the part? Do a goggle search on the part number you want and see what comes up?

you aren't kidding sir.... sourcing a new speedo is like trying to nail jello to the wall.... the only people telling me that there are speedometers available are VDO guages... every dealer or parts place i contact tells me they are discontinued and to try salvage yards or ebay....
i guess i don't need to know how many miles are on my bike anyways... or any of the trips..... or charging, or temps, or clock, or fuel level... i mean i have the little yellow light.. lol
:crzy::rolleyes:
