Yep, a few times. I don't recall source but it is not the usual electronic parts suppliers. It was parts suppliers to the user industry like fork truck or buggy parts.

It obviously is a special custom pot with like about an 80 degree throw instead of the typical 270 or whatever. So they get like 30 or 40 bucks for them.

They are only good for a million wipes or so. A friend, RIP, wore one out in about 6 or 7 years in his mobility scooter. That could be a source. Check with a service place for those.

I do recall actually finding a source using google. It took a while

KTA has them for $16.50 here:

I was considering getting one when I decide to tune my Regenerative Braking but that is a ways away. I have to put some miles on my car first.

Thx everyone, BUT:

CLoud wants $19.95 /pot and 12.00 shipping...

KTA wants $16.50 /pot and 14.00 shipping.

When I go to UPS they have a $5.00 envelope for anything that fits inside...

What gives with these guys?

Thx Major, I will look here in my area for mobility parts.(Maybe local pick up too)

I just ran their shipping estimator and that is what I got.

BTW: I did order one. I didnt want to take the chance of buying the wrong thing several times from cheaper sources.

After posting this I went to checkout and the amount doubled, some sort of bug in the system. I have not yet heard back from my email to them about it.
