Replaced my throw out bearing, went to the Harley dealer to get said bearing and it was a no go, Fastenal was closed due the virus (no exceptions according to the lady at the door) ended up at NAPA and they had one

I looked at mine when I got a pizza out of the freezer. It's raining and turning cold again.

About Fastenal, I'm very disappointed in them. I can go to any local auto parts store or hardware store and get parts at the counter, including the ones with the social distancing tape. But Fastenal closed their door to walk-in's and only takes care of delivery to local industries. My local Fastenal store has been fantastic over the years in personal sales and service to me. This was a deal breaker for me. I won't be going back.

I made a new 3/4” rear axle for my KHK chop so I can use a cast wheel with a disk.
