Exclamation OEM Hand Guard and Laminar Lip in Canada

Does anybody know a Canadian source for a pair of OEM hand guards for DL650 and also a laminar lip?

I found the sources in the States though but at New Market and bramton they do not have the hand guards.

Thanks in advance...

I don't know about the Laminar lip, but I got my OEM Hand Guards at the Dealer where I bought my V-Strom when I bought the bike. I don't know how the price there was/is compared to other places but I suspect I might check Oneida Suzuki (also an Suzuki Dealer) in the USA if I needed to buy a set today.

2006 DL650: 202,000 km 125,500 miles, Sold
2012 DL650 139,500+ km, 86,700+ miles. Sold
2015 DL1000 New July 2015 195,000+ km, 121,000 miles.

Laminar Lip has contact email addresses and a toll free phone munber. Shoot them a message asking about Canadian importers.

Thanks, it appears that hand guards are almost half the price in US so I just ordered it from there.
I try the laminar lip guys and see if I can get it here in Canada at a reasonable price.

One would guess, from your shopping in Newmarket and Brampton, that you are in the GTA.

There is an option to save a few extra bucks and go for a ride if you're interested.

U.S. Address Inc. http://usaddressinc.com/

Have your stuff shipped to them and go down and pick it up. Their handling fees are very reasonable and they are just over the border in Buffalo. I've used them and they are good.

Just another option for you to consider.

Another option is to try Motor Sports World in Ottawa 613-225-2892. Talk to their parts guy Charlie. They are a distributer/dealer for SW Motech and I believe they are able to get just about anything Twisted Throttle has. I ordered the SW Motech skidplate from them last week for $208.99 CDN plus tax. From Twisted throttle it was $228.50 US plus all the associated headaches. Just something to keep in mind.

I bought my Laminar Touring Lip direct from Laminar in '05. Easy people to deal with, fast shipping, great product - never had a problem with it and IT WORKS!!!
