Where are you having the inspection done? They may well have a point, but they'd need to prove it in the legislation before they could fail it.
If its at one of the larger chain, remove as much money from each customers pocket as possible you may want to try a smaller independent shop.
When I imported my BMW years ago the local stealer wanted $280 to do the inspection and told me it would be months before they could do it. A nice smaller shop in can rise did it the Monday after that call, for $120

rob1313,

Thanks for the reply, after pointed out the June 2011 regs, to the shop, they did some further investigating and came back and advised 2012 Regs stipulated hinged footpegs/floorboards, however 2013 regs did not even mention hinged flloorboards/footepegs reverted back to wording of June 2011 rgs, so consequently do not have to purchase new footepegs.

Thanks,

bmwnewbie

Awesome. I imagine its also much like the building codes. They can't make it comply if it was built to the standard of the day. Glad you got it sorted

All it needs is a rear tire as the old rear is down to the wear bars. After that is done it is for sale. Great bike just acn't et around the seating position.

Thanks,

Question

Looking to get an OPI for my newly imported bike and eventually a Salvage Inspection for my Written-Off bike once I rebuild it.

Anyone have any good recommendations for an inspection shop in Calgary?

And does anyone know where I can get my hands on one of those Alberta Motorcycle Inspection Manuals?

Redline motorsports did an OPI on my Suzook. I felt like they wanted it to pass and they didn't try to add on a bunch of unnecessary work to make more money. I would use them again.

+1 for Redline Motorsports. My hubby had his OOP inspection done there for a fair price. Richard won't jerk you around.
