Part needed - can't seem to find - Help?

Postby Bauer » Mon Aug 05, 2013 7:09 pm

Hi guys!
Our 1994 K1000LT is in need of a front brake light switch. We've looked all over and no dice. Anyone have any ideas other than the obvious?
Thanking you all in advance and kindest regards,
Tigger

Over at k11.org there is someone parting out a 94K11RS. You could also try motobrick.com.

Hey Tigger,

You might contact the Rides Chair, Ed Phelps, at Brown's (V-Twin) Cycle Repair in Westminster, MD. 410 386-0177 [or 443-324-7183].

You might be surprised at what he can come up with since he has a stable of old K-bikes (with some parts I donated).

Ciao!

Crisis averted. Ed Phelps came through like a champ. I nominate Ed as "King of the World"! Thanks Ed - super duper Tigger bounces for you! Thank you all for your assistance.
