Hey all,
Getting skunked on my front isolator search. I'm being told my order will have to wait until 17 Jan 17 for Harley to make another. Any tips? Having the bike down 6 months is no bueno.

Thanks,

Cbig

The front XB isolators are on back order from HD until January 7 of 2017, yes 2017. We have been out of them for two months now and have 40 on back order.

That sucks to hear. My Uly is at 45k miles, I've debated throwing a new isolator at it one of these days (I think it is fine though), I guess it will be a winter project now.

Is that part number L1501.02A8? Surdyke is showing those in stock on their web site. Might be worth checking with a live person there if you really want to get one now.

Cbig, is yours shredded? Or are you just replacing it because you think it's worn?

I have one that was pulled at high mileage, but it wasn't torn, and frankly the bike didn't feel any different before and after replacement.

Can't say that I am surprised by this. I knew the day would come, just didn't think it would be this soon...

Lance,
Have you inquired to Harley/Davidson parts about the back order?
With your store having 40 on back order. Makes me wonder how many in total are on b/o world wide.
I can't help but think that H/D is waiting for the magic number of back ordered parts to place a run order with Barry Controls to make more.

(revised)
If we knew how many unit orders are needed for Barry Controls to make a run of parts, maybe we could just do a group buy... instead of waiting for the back orders to make the number. Which could take weeks or months.

Or place orders with Buell dealers who are actively supporting the brand.

At this point, I wonder if Barry and others still (or ever) had exclusive deals with HD for Buell parts?

This summer, I ordered a front isolator. Not because I needed it but mine is on borrowed time so I thought I would get in line on the backorder list.
I placed my order and showed up in a couple of weeks.
It was a complete surprise to everyone.

So that would be my suggestion. Just order it and call them every couple of days. It may just show up.
