What are the best distributors in Canada for parts? I will be buying a trail tech vapour in a couple weeks and hopefully I can get it from within Canada. Any good Canadian websites for parts?

gnarlyparts.ca
US prices, free shipping over $150.
Dave's a good guy, will take care of you.
Not sure if he has the Vapour's but he can usually order stuff up for you pretty quick.

Also try www.motokuhl.com out of Calgary. Joe there says that he can get most items even if they aren't on the website yet. Just send them an e-mail with your request and he will let you know what they can get fairly quickly. Tell him WR Dave sent you.

Funny how our dollar is pretty much 1:1 yet gnarly...com the vapor is 105 US and gnarly....ca it's 140 Canadian - that's 25 difference or close to 25% difference.....

.....and it's all coming out of the same warehouse.

Try Ebay - likely your best prices.

That's intertesting, I always find there stuff is within 5% of the US price.

I don't see the $105 us. it's $124.95us Maybe thats the Vector.. I shop at Gnarly all the time and they are great. Living in BC we don't have big shops here that stock lots. Most shops will order you anything but I don't want to wait a week or two for my stuff. Gnarly is the only place that actually have some inventory.

Not disputing they're not great - just saying the price difference was huge...just checked and yes - now 125....could have sworn it was 105 this am - still 10% over what the exchange is on a bad day for us.

I would pay 10% anyday over the local shops that wants $189.95 for that same unit. Also Gnarly does free shipping to anywhere in Canada on orders over $150. Try that with any US shop.

10% is not that bad considering we are a different country. We are just spoil because we are such close neighbours. You should check the prices in Europe.

I just got notification from www.motokuhl.com that they now have a promotion that offers free shipping in Canada on orders over $100.

I also did some checking with a dealer buddy of mine on the Trail Tech Vapor and he told me the dealer COST was $132 CAD so it's the distributor who is making the retailer look bad in this case.

I have no complaints with Gnarly Parts. Recieved my order one week to the day after I ordered it; not bad considering it went from BC to NB. I will continue business with them.
