The bracket has been backordered. Somehow, I'm not surprised.
I was, however, dismayed when I got that message.
Lady Luck says I should buy another VX as a parts bike. Personally, I'm starting to think that I should just SELL the sucker and get a bike that's easier to get parts for. Maybe I can save my pennies for a while, sell the VX and get an SV650. Or a Honda 919, those are pretty nifty too.
