Common when trying to get parts for a ZRX. I've learned this also. You have to ask for parts for a ZR1200, or you'll get stuff for a ZX12.

I've kind of given up on getting parts (other than oil filters) from my closest Honda/Yamaha/Kawasaki/Suzuki dealer. They don't stock anything any more, so why should I bother making TWO trips there to get a part when I can get it delivered to my doorstep from Babbit's faster and for less cost? Then there was the time they couldn't get me a Honda valve adjustment tool, even though I gave them the part number. The dealer across town got it for me. At least they didn't tell me they don't want my business.
