Best Orange Crush (KTM) Supplier in Canada`

I made an attempt to pickup some what I thought were common parts at my local KTM dealers for my 990 adv. I turned up empty handed.

Where do you guys buy your parts online? The USD is just pillaging us so I would prefer to order from Canada if I can.

Thanks

If you mean factory ktm parts, aka made by ktm, then a Canadian dealer is your only option. The ones near me don't have squat in stock and everything gets ordered from the Canadian or US whare house. I just phone them, make the order and usually get the parts within 3 days. US dealers aren't supposed to and usually won't ship to Canadians.

If your referring to aftermarket parts...depends on which parts your looking for.

Factory KTM or aftermarket. Ideally a one stop shop...

Currently I'm looking for some frame fasteners (OEM), throttle cable, fuel filters, mesh oil filter, front brake pads (EBC), sprockets.

I'm not fussy as per aftermarket or OEM as long as they are reputable, but a one stop shop would be convenient.

I have used KTM Twins for some things and like them. They won't ship any OEM parts north though because of rules with KTM international. OEM I order from the local shop (Usually Blackfoot Motosports). With the current exchange rate and shipping, they are about the same. Dealer or online, I always have to wait for (most) parts other than oil and air filters and the rare things like clutch master cylinder rebuild kit. Brake pads they always have as long as you don't have to have KTM branded.

I have used www.partspitstop.com and Munn Racing with great success in the past for OEM parts when the currency exchange made sense...

Not out loud. PM me if you want to down low on a sweet deal re: KTM parts. Not affiliated with said deal (maker), just passing the word. Secretly.

Edit: This secret supplier will save you money, not time. It is cheaper, but expect to wait. If parts are in stock, it is fast... if not, add the time for the backorder plus 1-2 weeks shipping.

I have ordered a few things from Orange Motorsports in Cobourg, Ontario and have always got my items promptly, and reasonably priced.... Very promptly in fact.

I would also like to know (KTM) sweet deals .

Yeah Orange in Cobourgh hooked me up with a rear rotor for the 990 when I was heading to the Dacre last year. Only ones in stock that didnt want my first born for the privilege. The mark up difference between OEM dealers if fuckin' criminal. Shop around.

True, Orange is 25% off my local dealer prices. I tried to get local dealer to match... they won't do it.

Orange is the way to go so far within Canada.

Orange is good for KTM parts. They are in my experience, by FAR the most reliable and prompt with shipping. I haven't noticed their pricing being any better or worse than other places, but they are incredibly fast and reliable.

I called them and their prices are all wrong online. I thought they were really cheap, but it turns out that their site just isn't up to date.

I think all the dealers buy from the same supplier/distributor in Ohio. They probably all get the same prices and just mark-up more or less on their end. Most of the Canadian places I contacted were able to drop 10% off the listed prices without much prompting.

Shipping from Ohio to US/Canada is fast, but when a part has to come from Austria or Germany... then it takes some time.
