Hello forum guys and gals,

Living here in Canada has its blessings but what I can't find are outlets that sell the following.
1) Similar service packs like Beemer bone yard, I.e filters, wrench, washer, o- rings
2) Foot brake lever extensions like Illium works
3) Gear shift extension

They look cheap enough online but add in shipping and it's like bend over and pass the grease. Can anyone enlighten me were to shop in Canada. Thank you all.

Richard,

Things like filters, washers, etc. if you plan on keeping your bike for a while. It is still cheaper to buy in bulk from Beemer Boneyard than buying from a Canadian BMW dealer. Order all the consumable items you think you will use for a couple of years. Make sure they ship by US postal system so there are no brokerage fees. There is a coupon section in the order page, put "advrider" in here and it will give you a 10% discount which helps defer the shipping costs. Give them a call, they have been very helpful for me.

Tires in Canada can be found here;

Small items like the Ilium peg extenders you might want to see what a local machinist would charge. I just picked up some Ilium floorboards for my R1200RT. I balked at the price of the shift extender, and I have my parts shipped to Port Huron in Michigan. The shift extension is just jammed over the existing rubber, presently I am using a deep 19mm socket.

Richard;

I get my tires from Moto International in Montreal. Parts, I get from a few places, like Chicago BMW and Beemer Boneyards. I have a post office box across the border and pick them up when I know they are there.
Dealers charge a quite a bit for parts that are almost 50% cheaper in the US because of the volume of LT's there compared to here in Canada.
Good luck!!
Regards,
Don

Pete's is down the street from me, tire pricing is not bad but Moto International in Montreal can not be beat!!
Just got a rear for the LT and it cost 248.00 Can taxes in!!
Bought a set from them last year at the Moto Show and was around 370.00 for the set.

Thanks guys for replying. I will keep what you said in mind. I will for sure remember the tire place Moto international. See what shipping will be like. I will need new treads for next season. I am not a high miler just yet. Still working to hard to retire. The six pack filter set up looked good for the price shipping killed that for me, for the miles I do annually I may as well find an outlet closer to home and just purchase as and when I need them. I may try KN Filters then I won't need the removing wrench. Wishing you both all the very best. Have a great season and stay safe.

I like http://www.canadasmotorcycle.ca/ for free shipping. Have had no problem with them. Also, Alberta Cycle is suppose to have good prices on tires, haven't bought many there thought. Our club meets at Nisku on Saturday mornings for breakfast then some will go riding. Come on out. We meet at the Airways motel at 9:00 am then rides usually start about 10:30.

Guys, I finally have my oil filters coming from KN Canada. I purchased two for a total of $31.98 CDN with free shipping from Ontario. Ordered Friday May 9th delivery due Monday May 12th. I had checked UAP Napa in Leduc and for the Napa Gold filter it was $32.40 for one filter. Next to get the correct oil. I had thought about using Shell Rotella 10W40 with detergent in it. Transmission and FD I will go with Hypoid 90.

Phil (Bighopper) I will PM you soon. I am wanting to pay you to help me do a Brake line flush and perhaps ask your opinion on changing out the lines at the same time. I also need help deciding on a BT set up for my helmet so I can get the radio and Zumo in their. The bike has a unit under the seat that feeds two helmets. If I can get rid of this equipment that would suit me fine. I had given a lot of thought of moving this machine on. I placed a blog in the main forum asking how many LT owners still out there. The results were and still are coming in as this is the best touring bike to date despite its not in production anymore. My wife and I talked it over for sometime and for the short riding seasons in Canada and the reliability of the LT to change it out would not be financially viable option. Her condition. Is mint and with low mileage I should buckle down and start to learn to keep her in good health without the use of stealers.

The Napa Gold is only $7 (although they had a sale last month @ $5)
As to brake bleed etc, give shout.

Come to Rosie's Bar on Wednesday & meet the group & see Part #2 of a Trip To Mexico in March.

Whilst the bike was stripped down for 20K service, I deceived to look around for the fuel quick disconnects. I found here in Edmonton a Jiffy Tite dealer.

The owners name is Gary... Website is http://www.madmaxxracing.com. Once I get my parts I will tell you my pricing and how long it took to get them.
