Decomp cable.

Postby kyle » Tue Nov 10, 2015 5:30 am

Needed to get a new decomp cable for my 650r (sp44a). Upside was local dealership had it in stock. Downside? They charged 30 quid. How can suzuki justify that price?

They can`t and they don`t care either. Buy it or do without is their attitude.
Clutch cable for your bike is also nearly £30 (same on the Big) and a throttle cable is £68.60! (£66 on the Big)
I would still recommend buying genuine as Chinese copies are utter shite and will break when you are miles from home.
I know Robinsons have a bunch of throttle cables in stock for your bike and will do you one half price
If you think the cable prices are high, then try buying elctrical items :o
DR 650 stator £544.40, rotor £531.28, CDI £482.43
DR800 stator £533.74, rotor £608.23, CDI £488.34
Fuel tank for an 800 is now over £1000!!
..... and I can remember when running a bike was cheap :crazy: not any more it seems.
This is the end product of rampant capitalism; screw the poor for every penny they can ....... bastards!
This is why I`ve bought up quite a few wrecks over the years just for the spare parts.
