After contemplating the many choices for FZ1 slipons, I settled on a Yosh TRS tri-oval. My decision was based on:
1) recommendations by others
2) cool looks
4) I've already had an Akra and wanted to try something different
But after talking to two local shops, I'm told this exhaust is not yet available in Canada! ACK!
So I'm considering buying mail order from the US. Has anyone had experience with the big shops like Parts411, Motorcycle Accessory Wharehouse, Dennis Kirk, etc. ?
Yes, I know all about delivering to mailboxes in Point Roberts, etc. But seems like most of these shops will only deliver to the address listed on your credit card, to combat fraud.
Besides, this is not something I can hide down the front of my jacket as I cross the border
One idea would be to swap pipes on the bike then ride back with my "new" second hand stock exhaust, and that way pay less duty. Or I could wrap it up and mail it to myself in Vancouver. But that's getting to be a bit more work. Not sure if it's really worth it; I'm only saving the taxes, which I was prepared to pay if I'd bought it locally.
