Stupid freakin' eBay. I seem to have no end of trouble with this crap.
Here's what I'm faced with. I own a 1975 Suzuki GT550 motorcycle. I thought I needed the entire clutch pack for it. I found one on eBay for much cheaper than I was expecting; however, it was for a 1972 GT550. I searched some parts houses and discovered that the parts from a 1972 and a 1975 were identical. I bought the clutch pack.
2 days later, I found the clutch pack for my motorcycle. I had accidentally packed it away and had forgotten about it. Well, I thought, no big deal, I'll just use the best of either clutch and make a frankenclutch. I waited to get the new clutch. I received it yesterday and opened the box. I compared clutch parts and discovered that the new clutch was completely different than my old clutch.
I did some research on this new clutch and while it's branded with Suzuki on it, I cannot find what it actually came from. Sometimes, the parts catalogs for older vehicles can be wrong, so it may be that this is the right clutch for a 1972 but not for a 1975. It also may be the case that it was listed incorrectly by the seller. I'm not sure which is the case. I hesitate to contact the seller without proof that this clutch is from a different motorcycle than listed, but everything I've found says it's not from a 1972 GT550.
I bought the clutch for $25 plus $10 shipping and with my extremely limited supply of cash, this is a big deal to me. Any thoughts Foosters?
