Hey guys,

I'm looking for OEM parts (specifically in this case, rear crankcase breather hose, 29505-05.) I have one on order through my dealership, they have no idea when it will get here. I have one on order through bikebandit.com, they have no idea when it will get here.

It seems as though everyone *must* order direct through Harley, and no one has this particular ($12) part in stock locally. Are there any online warehouses I'm overlooking that would be able to overnight me said part? I'd really like to take the bike out this weekend, but can't seem to locate the part I need to get back on the road. I hear this is not uncommon with H-D, and this is very frustrating, to say the least!

What happens in the future when another cheaply built part (just like this one) cracks or breaks? To be fair to the MoCo, I'll add: What happens in the future when I accidently break a part due to carelessness? My riding season is short enough as it is, having to wait an unknown amount of time for a trivial part just seems wrong.

Somewhat related, I ordered a windshield and a backrest back in mid July... backordered. No one has any clue when either will be here. WTH?

I need something like a NAPA for H-D! Hmm... potential business opportunity?

THat has been a bitch with HD for quite awhile now. Hope you dont need a frame part because you will be waiting a long long time. On a happy note - NO shortages of tacky T Shirts or leather vests... :angeldev:

Sharkey - thanks for the referral. I was going to use that as a last resort, luckily I found one a bit closer so won't have to pay for the overnight shipping.

I've called all of the dealerships within 100 miles from me (seven total) ... none have the part in stock.

I then started calling regional dealerships, those within a 1 or 2-day UPS ground (affordable) delivery from me. Chicago dealership didn't have it. Tried a big dealership in Omaha, they had ONE in stock, I about fell out of my chair. He's sending it via UPS ground today, it'll be here tomorrow. :notworth:

The potential disaster of not being able to ride during the long labor day weekend has been avoided, thankfully. Whew.

Still frustrating though!!

hah, sounds awesome.. thanks for the invite, maybe next time. Already booked this weekend with family plans all around the state. Monday is free, unfortunately it looks like it's over on Sunday!

I've heard MANY good things about those Conesville rallies...

All dealers have access to a website called HDNET. The parts person can log into it and find out what dealer has the part you are looking for. They can give you location and phone numbers.

HDNET is not real up to date but will give you a chance of finding a possible dealer that has what you need.
