Or was I? The rear axle nut on my YZ is rounding off. Guy before me must have used an adjustable wrench not adjusted correctly. Phooking shop charged me $13 for this NUT. &%$#@!? I looked at the guy and said "Doesn't that sound a bit high?". He said yeah, but that's what the price is. :naughty:

Better be solid gold.

I also had to buy a little chain adjusting locking nut, that was about $2.50. It is only a 10 mm (inside Diam.) nut with a flange. :naughty:

You need to try Alba, They sell oem parts at a reasonable price! Try replacing a shift lever at the dealers price.

It sucks. They've got it, and you want it. It doesn't really matter what the price is, because you'll pay it.
