Hey folks, cheers for the info there, but alas, none of them stock what I need, which is mainly just a chain & sprocket for the V-Strom. I high-tailed it down to Panama City where I am now, and the main Suzuki dealer here (that stocks V-Stroms so their web-site says), does not have a basic chain and sprocket for me either. No biggy as I'm shipping the bike home from here anyway, but cracks me up these faux-authorised dealers that wave the banners but tell you they can't get you parts.
Robopie - won't ask why not to use your name, but of course we'd all love to know.......
We're here for a good time, not a long time...
