Don`t mess around with s/hand rockers as they will undoubtedly have some wear.
They are still available new in Canada. Part no 12840-44B01. Expect to pay a bit over $200 for 4.

Only use second hand rockers on the cam that they are matched to. If not, they will be buggered in no time along with the cam.

In other words ...get a cam and matching rockers from the same bike and make sure you mark them so that you know which is exhaust and intake or you will have the same mismatch issue.

No idea why I said 4, I must have been thinking of valves.
After decades of ownership of numerous Bigs plus numerous rebuilds, you would have thought that I would have got the hang of it by now.
Must be getting old and senile ;)
I`m not surprised that your local Suzuki dealers haven`t got the parts in stock, but surely they can order it in if you give them the part no?
You can order it from the UK from www.robinsonsfoundry.co.uk @ £75 each less 20% tax, so about £60 each.
Or from here @63 euros each

Robinsons are immensely reliable and if you decide to phone them, ask for Michelle and mention my name for 10% discount.
