Al at American Sport bike can find most anything you need. Great guy too.

If he does not have it in stock he can find it.

You might consider taking it to the Milwaukee area as Hals HD in New Berlin, WI is one of the best Buell shops around.

Or if you are up for a real road trip you could always bring it to NRHS here in CO. Between my machinist Zach and myself we have 12 Buells!!
