Self Locking Rear Axle Nut

So I hate messing with cotter pins, and would like to go the route of a self locking rear axle nut. I know of 1 so far:
http://www.dual-star.com/index2/Bran...uts_suzuki.htm

But I have been calling both numbers everyday for the last week, and no one picks up. In addition, their voice mailbox is full.

So who else sells these?

Any Suzuki dealer can order one for you. It's OEM equipment on the newer Strom models.

Go hakafugu yourself.

locking pin

A good hardware store, a farm supply or a marine chandlery will have a variety of options.
Personally I like SS cotter pins from West Marine. I can't afford Suzuki parts.

I'm not sure why anyone would buy a Suzuki cotter pin ... any hardware store will have them. :-|

Are the Plastic lock nuts a different diameter from the Castle Nuts?
