    Default Need a brake part!

    Help, I need the Retaining clip for the rear caliper on a 93 sportster 883 I am at the end of the chop build and I have seemed to misplace the retainer Its the piece that is a thick piece of wire shaped into what almost looks like a W. Harley is telling me it is a discontinued item and they cannot get it either. If someone has one lying around I would grateful to get it from ya!

    Visit your independent harley bike shop and I am sure they'd have one laying around.

    I'm sure any Harley dealership can order it our you can get it from Ronnie's HD for 8.99 plus shipping.

    Take a piece of stainless steel gas welding rod and bend one up. Two pair of Vice Grips works well.

    Google the part number which will also get you other part numbers for the same thing.

    Also go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/1465028990466294/ (worth making a dummy account to get though Fecesbook itself sux) and download the factory parts catalogs and factory service manuals for what you own and everything remotely like what you own to get upgrade and interchange info. Best done on a PC of course but keeping phone copies is handy for swap meets and when helping out bros away from your shop.

    Here's some insight into the part number dick dance:

    Original HD numbers from the factory parts catalog are normally obfuscated by sellers who don't really want you to find stuff elsewhere or have a legit reason like buying parts database software which uses a different format so:

    43960-86

    is listed by V-Twin as their SKU

    Part #: 1913371

    https://www.denniskirk.com/v-twin-ma...rd/1913371.sku

    which appears backordered BUT the Dennis Kirk page lists alternate numbers ( 02183S, 43960-86 )

    It's just an anti-noise device and I've bought HDs where it was missing thanks to a previous owner but I didn't notice until doing a brake job.

    https://www.smccycles.com/index.php?...ducts_id=10864 shows it in stock and must be a rather large retailer (note qty) but I've never dealt with them.
