New Rubber

Recieved my new Metzeler Tourance for the hind end of the Wee today. New x-ring chain too.

Bought online from imotorcyclestore.com

A Tourance retails here in canada for 304.00 (motovan) and the chain for around 150.00

Paid 150.00 and 75.00 USD for the goods

free shipping

huge saving, no?

Really makes me wonder why we have to pay so damn much for bike goodies up here.

Cheers!

Mark-up is pretty crazy. I ordered a pair for Dunlop D607s through a friend, that knows a guy, that knows another guy, that has a friend, who is the Canadian importer for Dunlop motorcycle tires. I paid $190 for the pair, including tax. Probably should have got 3 or 4 sets.

wow, thats a great price!

I have a 607 on the front of my Wee, will be replacing it though. Upon install I immediatly noticed a very slight wobble, mostly during decel. Talked to 3 other riders (one Suz, 2 Beemer) with the same complaint.

Mileage wise, it lasts a very long time, at 14,000km there was barely any wear noticed on the front 607.

cheers
