I haven't done too much online shopping for parts but I'm pretty sure we're screwed when it comes to ordering from Canadian dealers. Our market size just can't compete with the market size of the Americano gringos. :p

Even if you found a Canadian online dealer they also have to pay the shipping, duty, and taxes to bring it across the border. They would just pass on the costs to you (and probably mark that up as well).

I would search online and then see if your local retailers can match that price and go from there.

http://www.newenough.com sells limited parts but seem to have good shipping rates. It was $60 to ship an exhaust versus about $120 from other sites. You being in Newfoundland probably doesn't help with shipping rates either (I'm just guessing). :(

or ya know, you could always find a "friend" in the states that's willing to ship a certain item "gift", which means no extra taxes....

And I forgot, if you buy multiple items from the same place they'll usually ship it all together and give you a better shipping rate than if you shipped everything separately.

For example:

Separately at newenough:

Two Bros. exhaust shipping= $60 ($72 - $12 shipping special)
Puig windscreen shipping= $31
Total= $91

Shipped together:

Shipping= $67 ($79 - $12 shipping special)
Basically the windscreen ships for $7 instead of $31.

So... Spooph, if I ask you nicely can you smuggle an exhaust pipe over the border for me? I can even suggest a body crevice that it could be smuggled in. You could pretend to be Han Solo but you'd have to walk like C-3PO. Hahaha.
