Default V-strom DL 1000 complete handlebar

Hey bikers!

I could use some help... My complete handlebar was stolen from my bike (V-Strom DL 1000). Now I'm searching for new one and I can't find any. All I'm getting are just separate parts of it but not a complete handlebar.

Anyone knows where could I buy one (locations in Europe or online order)
and approx., how much would it cost?

Thanks, and have a nice day!

Adam

Did they steal all the switches and controls as well as the bar itself?

You won't be able to buy a new complete handlebar; you'll have to put it together from parts.

If you don't mind used parts, call some "breakers" or junkyards to see if they'll tear off a complete setup for you. I don't know if Europe has junkyards, but that's how we'd do it here.

Who steals a friggin handlebar anyway? That's just weird.

Someone who got their handlebar stolen......

(now if akotnik will steal his from the NEXT victim, and that person steals his from the next.... eventually it will get back-around to the SOB that started all this crap....)

That makes perfect sense, very good.

Now: who stole the FIRST one and why??

Yeah it was a whole handlebar, including switches and controls. Cables were cuted off... I mean come on, at least "the one" could remove the cables properly.

I'm trying to find a local dealer for Suzuki motors. Idea of a junkyard is nice but I don't know any around here.

Stealing one from another biker? I'd go straight to hell for that.

Junkyard than... As soon as I find one around.

It's an easy to remember username from my frist and last name... Tho I'm still "young" it's best to keep things simple. Aint that right pushrod? :P

p.s.: The bill from the official Suzuki service was 1492€ or 2.107$ for complete handlebar. I realy have to find some used parts somewhere. I hope that the junkyard guy will respond.
