There is NO duty on motorcycle parts and accessories. (There are duties on the gear though.)

I hear your thoughts, and understand. All I can say is, look at the location of the shop. I've tried to buy stuff out of Quebec for years, it's simply hopeless unless you speak french. My old company's H.Q. was in Montreal. Never once was anything easy, the language issue meant we had to jump hoops for the most simple of requests.
I was speaking French to the best of my ability which is a damned sight better than most Canadians. they were just unpleasant all 'round.

as for shipping to Canada they can't really do that because of the canadian distribution. Therefore I order when I am in the US or like last time I get my cuz to mail stuff up.

I don't have to deal with them, therefore I won't

Talking But man did we ever learned a lot though!!! ;)

No duty of Motorcycle parts and accessories?!!? WELL THAT CHANGES EVERYTHING dude. Fack MI we're ordering online dude. I will not throw 2500$ at those SOB just because they claim to be the only dealer in Canada.
This is horse shit.

We need to talk about that when you drop by the house. With this wonderful new piece of information I am not, I SAY AGAIN, I am NOT ordering from MI.

That just made my day!!! :) hahahahaha

Thanks guys. This forum is a gold mine!!

no duty, but you'll pay GST & PST.

i had my order shipped to the UPS depot and picked it up/brought it across myself. i don't think TT u.s. will ship to canada, but this method worked perfectly.

Yep.

Now Les at Dualsportplus is ten bucks cheaper, but I'd have had to pay shipping, and I was coming up to Montreal for fambly reasons, so I bought from Moto-Inter. If I was ordering from home, then Les is where I'd recommend.

Also, just for reference, regular price for these tires in Canada is $629 after tax, from the catalog.

Sucks to be my dealer, but I can't justify $260 more for the same tires.
