Best site to by accessories in Canada?

Strommers,

Need to buy the following accessories pretty quickly:

Handlebar risers
Gel seat
Grip heaters

Is there any site for a company in Canada or a US company that will deliver to Canada for a decent rate, and not have nay problems with customs?

Thanx!

Risers: check with Blair/SVRacing.
Grip heaters: CaliforniaSporttouring for Symtec grip heaters.
Gel seat: Buy American or go broke. Have some one Fedex or USPS a gel seat. UPS will charge a brokerage fee and break your wallet.

I had a dealer get me a gel seat here about 2 years ago and it cost $344.00 Can.

I love it. Our Stromtrooper ride on the 20th was my first day on it. It dawned on me on the way home that I was still totally comfortable. Pretty amazing for my first long ride of the season.

I got it from Sandhills Powersports. I had it shipped to a hotel in Michigan. I really lucked out, $321.00 for the seat, free shipping, no tax and I brought it back across the border with no taxes or duty.

Unfortunately they don't show the Strom seats any more. You might give them a call and see what's up.

If you find free shipping to a US address, you could save a bundle by having stuff sent to either Ship Happens http://www.shiphappenssumas.com/
or Package Express http://www.packageexpress.com/.

Drop down pick it up and land it yourself, for little or no dough.
