here's the answer i got:
We do not get requests for plastics for that bike. We would have to have about 1500 request in order to start the project on making plastics for that bike. I can mention it to the higher ups but you are the only request I have had for a while sorry.
I'm guessing most DR owners just aren't very hard on the bikes and don't tear up the plastic. Thank God for duct tape.
Good. Bad. I'm the guy with the gun.
Another day, another foot injury!
