So my two chrome cable guides that mount under the top triple clamp on my 1300R had some rust and one broke. I thought I'll just pick up two new ones and threw them away. Holy cow one is $75 and the other is $100 (OEM). Similar clamps on a Shadow are like $15. Has anyone run into this? What gives......

I've looked around. Ebay is not what it used to be. The ones on ebay or more than Revzilla. Seems like everyone has caught onto the price of these......Yes I know I could fabricate something, I just like original stuff......Just venting I guess and hoping someone would say OH i have a couple.

Bores Cycle | eBay Stores If you don't see it, I think you can call. I live near them and they have thousands of bikes. I think they keep what they feel they can move and sell off the rest of the bike to other shops.
