curious if you have looked at ebay?

a lot of bikes parting out end up there

I dont know the most common place to find used parts - I would think a bike shop would always have a few bikes that are being used for parts

one of the great things about yamaha Vstar bikes is they use the same parts on all the bikes if they can - I noticed the grips, levers, mirrors, turn signals, tail light, headlights... are the same on most of the Vstar line.

I've looked on Ebay. I found an entire throttle body assembly that has the sensor still attached to it. So I messaged to see if they send me just the sensor. Still searching around tho. But according to the fitment list, yeah most of them use the same sensor. I tried finding just the sensor itself on Ebay but it's about OEM price on ebay lol. Still searching around tho
