Please Help Me Locate a Part...

I noticed I was missing the cover for my relays when I put my bike back together last week. I've been checking parts fiche online and called a few dealers. On the parts fiche it's right next to #9 under wiring harness, the fuse panel lid. Here's the craziest thing I think I've ever heard and was told this by two OEM part dealers. If I want that relay cover I have to buy the whole $700+ wiring harness! Obviously that's ridiculous but why do they sell the fuse panel lid but not the relay one? Is there anyone out there that knows how to find one? I've emailed Suzuki and am waiting on a response.

Maybe look for a crashed bike?

Good question. I think something like that doesn't really have a reason to be updated. There's a good chance it is. I'll look into it. Thanks B

It should be so much easier than this though. Probably hard to find a totaled V2.

I wouldn't be surprised if you can't buy it separately. The 05-06 gsxr 600 has a $15 secondary butterfly actuator that you have to buy the entire $1300 throttle body assembly to get...

Is it part #9, "Cap Assembly, Fuse box"??? If so, I see it listed at Rocky Mountain ATV MC for a 2015 DL1000

9 36717-31J00 CAP ASSY,FUSE BOX $7.87 $7.08 Usually ships in 5-7 business days

Seeing the lead time I suspect they need to order it also. Sorry if I'm way off.

Close but that's the part I said I don't need.

I worked at a dealership and look at many parts fiche diagrams. If it doesn't have a number you can't order it and have to get the whole assembly it's part of. Really sucks. Try getting a piece of plastic, cutting it to fit and either taping or zip tying it in place. Not a great solution but it should work and save you having to buy the whole assembly.

Yea I'm pretty sure that's what is going to happen. I may order the fuse lid and rig it up. I'm still baffled as to where the hell it could have went. How does something like that disappear..
