Default Yamaha to sell spare parts for RX100 and RD350

Hey Guys:

This is old news but I dont seem to see anyone discussing this here or have I missed it out?

I dont own a RD350 or RX100 at present but still this news is very exciting to me. Here is the >link< and here is a snippet.

"In its bid to regain customer confidence and regain its glory, Yamaha came out with a great announcement. RX100 and RD350 owners can jump to the skies, as Yamaha itself plans to sell spare parts for its older yet cult bikes like RX 100 and RD 350. “We are talking to the vendors for providing spare parts even for our older bikes, like RX 100 and RD 350, to win back the confidence of our customers,” India Yamaha Motor CEO and Managing Director Yukimine Tsuji said."

This website does not post the source but I guess the experts here will do the research on its authenticity.

Cheers

Great news,Now guys who were not buying the RD just cause no spares for it were available can very well get hold of a Junk RD and start rebuilding it. BTW what about the RXZ spares?

I do have an RD already but hopefully this will blow away the people who have gone beyond the level of absurdity when it comes to quoting the price for spares.

I checked with the Yamaha Dealer here in Thane, he says no spares available for the RXZ, nothing at all. Dont know why Yamaha has this step motherly thing for the RXZ. BTW mines a 2004 5speed with the Catcon and discs. The dealer dosent even have a Parts list for the RXZ. Sad real Sad.
