Online OEM vendor for Canadians?

PostAuthor: Steamboat_Willy » Thu May 09, 2013 10:20 pm

Until recently I'd used Partzilla.com and prior to that Powersportsplus.com. However, I went to order new OEM fork oil seals today and saw that Partzilla has DRAMATICALLY increased their shipping charges to Canada. Seems outrageous for them to charge $30 to ship $16 worth of parts. I'd ordered new muffler gaskets from them in Feb and it was about $12 then.

Any Canadians out there with suggestions on good online OEM vendors with REASONABLE shipping charges?

In Vancouver you should still have lots of luck at any Yamaha dealer. I was suprised what they can still order in, even at small shops here in Nova Scotia.
EBay can also be a good source...

Partsnmore is good. They are based in Canada and I've used them before too. However, the seals they have aren't OEM.

I managed to fine some oil seals on Ebay for a good price, incl. shipping.

I use these guys a lot.
Their prices at first look a little higher until you count shipping from out of country...
