IMHO, blame the high cost of those parts on the industry. Each manufacturer has a monopoliy over it products, and seems like none of 'em are interchangeable. so unlike walking into AutoZone andlooking up your airfilter size, invariably you have to order it.Plus, there aer sooooo many small aprts that can head south on you, and most shops aren't willing to keep that kind of contingent inventory around. in my dreams, I'd have a shop with a large stock fo the msot-needed items, smaller stock of the "frequiently needed," and a limited stock fo the "on occasion." However, that would have to be almost exclusive to the VN 750, since the 800, 900, 1500 are all different.
Clearly there's a niche market - it's just is it in the cards for Kaw, or has HD taken over that honor?
The best place to look for used parts is on eBay or here on the Forum. Many of us seem to accumulate all kinds of things "that may come in handy later." So a shout-out here is probabyl your first tactic, followed by eBay leads. No sense paying full price!
