Twisted Throttle - Duties and Shipping
New to the forum, awesome information on here. Just bought a V about a month ago, nice bike. Looking to get some hard luggage for it and was thinking of going with the Givi luggage and SW-Motech quicklock hardware. I'm located in Prince Edward Island, Canada and was looking at getting the hardware shipped up from the states. I can get the luggage at a dealer here for 15% off.
The question is: has anyone ever got stuff shipped up from the states and had to pay duty on it? I heard that as long as it is listed as motorcycle parts, duty does not apply.
Here's the breakdown of what twistedthrottle quoted me on luggage and hardware:
(1)KFT.08.603.150 SW-MOTECH Quick-Lock Sidecarrier (Kawasaki
Versys 650, '07-'09) Contour Carrier for Givi V35 PLX cases $229.99

ER6N, '06-'08, Ninja 650R, '06-'08 & Versys 650, '07-'09) for Givi, TraX
ALU-BOX, & Krauser topcases $149.99
(4)GPT.00.152.405 SW-MOTECH Alu-Rack Topcase Adapter Plate (GIVI /
