Went to the dealer today to order brake pads and found out they wanted 70+tax PER caliper for them. So $154. EBC or Galfer same price. Called around all the dealers were the same big suprise. Went on baysides website and had a set of galfers for $80 including hst and shipping. I dont care if their supplier is in the US or not. I'll be damned if im going to get gouged by the local stealerships anymore if i can help it.
Parts Canada/motovan has a rediculous monopoly in this country and its disgusting how much markup there is before it even hits the dealer! Im not blaming any dealership for the prices because it all comes from the middleman, and we all pay for it.
I rarly buy anything local now because of that. It would cost too much to ride if i did. If i need it fast then no problem, i will pay the premium price for that service, but otherwise no.
Anyways thanks to bayside for the great prices!
