    I find one gets really good deals when they show up at a dealership with the cords or belts poking through. HaHa.

    Pete's Superbike in Montreal has some of the best on line deals anywhere in Canada. www.petes-superbike.com
    I get almost as good pricing at Atlantic Motoplex since I can shop direct and not pay shipping. Similar to GBourque in Moncton area. Call or email for a quote - The on line prices showing at Motoplex are higher than actual. I think MSRP is posted and they will do much better. Don't know about shipping to NL and how they compare to Pete's.

    Wicked deals on tires at Royal Distributing. Guelph, Ont. Too bad these are in store only prices. Wish there was someone in the are to package and ship them to me!!

    Some odd sizes and some interesting combinations (F & R) might be needed but the pricing is great. I might want to check the DOT date codes... (They didn't even list a rear to fit my FJR)

    Just bought a set of the new Dunlop Roadsmart III - Price for the pair was pretty fair from Atlantic Motoplex ($321 incl tax. & environmental fee) but Dunlop has a $60 rebate going if you buy a front and a rear (until end of August). Pretty good for a tire I wanted to try anyway.

    Do they sell Maxum4 synthetic 10w40 oil, in a 4litre jug? Price must be less than $73. If so I could help you with shipping.

    Can't wait till Sept 10 or so to get my tire from Royal distributing so I visited local shops. Found a Michelin PR3 at Suzuki. Having it installed today. Guy there suggests under inflation or crappy 20170831_121957.jpg 20170831_121954.jpg cheap Shinkos tire caused the uneven wear as it can't be misalignment b/c it is shafts driven. Is he right? See photo attached.

    I still suspect something misaligned. Strange to wear through on one side only. PM sent.

    Wow! This is your third tire wore on the left side isn't it?

    I would perform the string wheel alignment technique to check. You should be able to find it on YouTube.

    Any play in your rear suspension bushings?
