The response to the original factor has always been strong, not 100%, but I am guessing that REV'IT! may have wanted to stick with a good thing without creating confusion.

Best,

Even after paying duties and taxes (and yes, I declare full value with receipts) and factoring time/gas the savings are still substantial enough to warrant the inconvenience of traipsing down to Niagara Falls.
Just to clarify. We have a fixed exchange rate against the Canadian dollar which is a five cent on the dollar difference. The additional costs which you see in our MSRP in Canada is the import duties (which are insanely high in Canada) of 13-18% and the Canadian GST/HST.

If you remove these charges (which go to the Canadian government, not us) our prices are virtually the same in the US and Canada.

I would have to imagine this problem effects other brands as well? We want to support the Canadian riders/dealers but frankly, things were much easier when the Canadian dollar was cheap.

I really wish we could solve this problem...

Hey guys,

I've seen a few of your product demo videos online which have helped me decide on a few products already, so thanks for that :)

Just picked up a XR650L; do you deal with the typical upgrades for the XR? (ex. bigger gas tank, skid plate, exhaust)

-Im looking for the biggest red plastic gas tank; i've only found white so far.
-Any recommendations on a affordable good quality skid plate?
-My OE exhaust makes a strange whistling noise so looking to change it out. Any quiet aftermarket systems? (or the quietest of the bunch? how's the FMF?)

Thanks for your help!
Mike

Hey Mike,

I am going to do some digging for you.

We are still expanding into the parts side of things so I am not sure if we will be able to get everything you need.

Stay tuned.

Best,

Anthony

Hey Mike,

Here are some options to consider for your new XR650L. For Fuel Tanks, Clarke Tanks offers a 4.7gal option in Red. For Skid Plate/Bash Plate, MSR offers an aluminum option with access hole for easy oil changes. Lastly, after-market exhaust systems including the FMF will have a higher decibel level (louder sound) so this may not be a good option. It sounds as if you may have a small leak in the OEM exhaust which is giving you the "whistling" sound. Please let us know if you need any help with your new bike!

For more detailed help on the parts side definitely shoot a line to cs@revzilla.com.

Anthony

Hey Anthony could you finish these statements for me:

I should buy the Sand suit if I want...

I should buy the Defender suit if I want...

I think Rev'it has gotten a bad rap for durability in the past because...

Thanks,
Rick

Hey Lucky,

Shootin video all day - just saw this now.

===

Hey Anthony could you finish these statements for me:

I should buy the Sand suit if I want...
A: A sub thousand dollar 4-season, component based ADV outfit with key upgrades in protection (Pro-life armor), venting, style and construction - without going overboard by including extremely technical elements that the average tourer / dual sporter wont need - even on an extended trip.


I should buy the Defender suit if I want...
A:The Lifetime waterproof guarantee of Gore-Tex. The highest degree of breathability through the gore-tex membrane. The upgraded venting similar to the Sand. SAS-Tex molecular armor (highest rating), Superfabirc ceramic plated panels on Elbows and Knees, 1000D ripstop Cordura, Exkin highest rated thermal liner.

The Defender is the most versatile and protective in extreme situations. The Sand is high-end and well rounded without being 10/10 extreme in price or functionality.

I think Rev'it has gotten a bad rap for durability in the past because...
A:In 2005 they had some gloves that fell apart? Some very specific customers drug them through the mud on ADV? Its human nature for people remember 10x more about bad comments compared to good things they hear?

Every premium brand we sell has and issue or defect periodically - its unavoidable. Its all about they handle the exchange / repair / refund / warranty. REV'IT! has always taken great care of its customers - or we would not be their evangelist the way we are.

===

Happy to expound on this :-)

Thanks,

Anthony

Sand Jacket for a tall guy

Hi, I need help to decide which size to order on a Sand Jacket.

I am 192 cm tall and 80 kg (6'13" 178 lbs). I've had the chance to try on a sand jacket of size XL, but L was sold out at the store outside my hometown. Will try internetorder instead. XL seemed to be ok, but it was a little bit loose around my thin body.

I often have to get a larger size just to fit my long arms. I guess the L would be a better fit to my body

So the question is:
- What is the difference of arm length between L / XL in inches? (measures from armpit?)

I would very much appreciate your help.
Thanks
