    Jack, Twisted Throttle used to be the source for those. Aren't they selling it any longer? If not, you might check European sources.

    As if most vendors keep much in stock for anything anyway...

    SW-Motech has their own on line sales Here. The rack is still listed....

    For my NC700X I ordered engine guards from Twisted Throttle that were out-of-stock but it was the Dead of Winter so a delay of 4-6 weeks for production/restocking would have been acceptable to me. They came in a month so I was happily surprised. The NC700X was a current bike at the time (2015) so I'm sure they had plenty of backorders for the engine guards.

    The NT is not a current bike so it might be a much longer wait. It's not unusual for a retailer to wait until they have xx-orders in hand before placing a order with the manufacturer because making "one-offs" is just too expensive. I wish you the best of luck.

    Back when I ordered a set of Hepco Becker racks for my Rebel, they weren't in stock (no surprise there), and I was expecting a response of "no longer in stock and we aren't going to make any until we have orders for a dozen or more". But HB surprised me and crafted a set. Took ~4 months to get them, but not too shabby considering that 'no one' orders $$$ stuff for a Rebel, and I didn't have to wait for a minimum number of orders in hand. And that included shipping time on a boat from Germany.

    You might get lucky!
