Inner plate for Shimano Ultegra rear der

I discovered a crack in the inner plate of my RD-6600-GS at the hole for the guide pulley axle:

It seems pretty easy to order the spare part in the UK.

Does anyone know of US suppiers?

Bikes: '''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!

Shimano has a 2 year warranty on Ultegra parts. You may be able to get it replaced that way.

It's about 3 years old. Thanks for the idea, though.

I noticed Cambria has the RD-6500 for $40. Any reason why that wouldn't substitute for the the 6600?

The 6500 will work. But your LBS should be able to order the part for you for cheaper than $40. I stripped out one of the screw holes on my 105 plate and the LBS ordered a replacement.

Do you know the distributor for such small parts? I've been through this before with an STI shifter and they said I had to buy the whole new thing. So I ordered the part from France for about $2.
