The part was on backorder from Triumph for the 7 weeks too. None of the above delays have anything to do w Bike Bandit.

If a part is back ordered from the oem, they can't magically conjure one.

I would say this is correct.  Although there is a legal obligation on Triumph to supply bike spares for so many years, there is no obligation on Triumph dealers to keep them stocked.  That is why I have a pair of new phantom black pannier lids in my own stock (plus, I got them cheap).  You can't lay it at Bike Bandit's door that they don't stock parts for obsolete bikes.

The best thing is to provide yourself with material that is frequently damaged, since it is possible that when it is needed, it will be difficult to find.
