Put together the first pass of the major parts needed for the rebuilt. Used shop.Benelli.Parts to get part numbers and new item prices. At least they (supposedly) have the hard-to-get stuff available, though prices did go up since I made the original list last year. I'll post a list in the classifieds once I clean the sheet up a bit.
Not dead yet. Long break. Had to take care of an elder family member full time.
Have some parts waiting. Big problem is I ordered parts from Benelli.parts or City Motorcycles last year in May. Still haven't gotten them. Spoke with Gert a few weeks ago to ship what parts he has and cancel the rest. Now phone is not connecting. I feel like I lost a lot of money right now.
I also had an issue with a spare set of forks last summer. On ebay, Seller "tornadp_57". I paid for forks. Supposedly shipped them, but I never received tracking information. Did not respond to emails timely. Claimed USA customs sent forks back. Stopped responding. More money lost.
But I picked up a few other parts, so some good things.
Short update. In November I put in a big order of parts from Maniac and Carbon.sk. Maybe January all the parts will ship. I will be able to do the cam chain, the Z25 kit, and lots of carbon fiber. Peter sent me a picture of parts that are done so far. Very excited for next year now.
The biggest issue I have now is I do not remember where I put the box with my replacement instrument cluster. Hopefully I will find it.
