U-joint replacement.

Is there anyone, anywhere in the Anglo sphere, that can replace a set of k1200 ujoints?
Bruno has had my shaft for 7mos, Henderson doesn't do the K's, and none of the car guys I've found will do either Bmw bikes, or staked ujoints.
Bruno's not answering his phone.

Help? It's 85 degrees and I can't ride. Used shafts are both rare and a bad percentage. Bought a couple. Learned that.

Re: U-joint replacement.

Has Cutter begun repairing them? I didn't call him because last I talked to him, he Didn't do that. I got the Henderson precision contact from him.

Re: U-joint replacement.

There is a shop in the east that does that.Google away?

There you go:

Others won't do the Ks? Why? Very same U-joints in specs and sizes all the way back to the 80s?
