    Don't know who's interested, but I found a Cdn supplier with great tire prices.
    Checked his prices against SW Moto tires in the US ------ results below (GST NOT included, price from Cdn shop INCLUDES shipping to anywhere in Canada).
    Pirelli Scorpion Sync 180/55 ZR17:
    SW Moto: $157.95, Cdn: $169.95

    Pirelli MT21 140/80 - 18
    SW Moto: $81.95, Cdn: $85.79

    Pirelli MT21 120/90 - 18
    SW Moto: $84.95, Cdn: $88.76

    Pirelli MT21 90/90 - 21
    SW Moto: $71.95, Cdn: $85.86

    Keep in mind I ordered 11 tires at once. They don't stock a whole lot, but will order in and ship whatever you want. Delivery to my door is say 2-3 weeks. Not much time or money difference from ordering from SW Moto, then having to travel to the border and pick them up.
    Anyone interested contact Tony at Blue Streak Racing, tell him Doug sent you

    Just ordered my tires today. It will be a around a week before he ships, so contact Tony and ask him to ship yours with mine. I'm sure he can get them.

    Keep in mind that the Shinko has a low profile so you lose 1-2" of clearance compared to a TKC-80. The tread is deep but it is low profile.

    Hello I am a noob who has been reading this thread for a week. I am amazed at what you people are doing by pooling resources. Is anyone planning a tire mounting/ balancing evening in the near future. I have some tires to mount on my DR650 and don't know the tricks involved. Willing to donate a flat of cold beer to help get the beads broke etc.

    I've been know to mount tires for beer. If you actually want them to hold air afterwards you'll need to throw in a large pizza too :)

    Does anyone have a cabinet sandblaster? I just bought a new engine for my baja bug, and I'd like to blast and paint the cooling tin. They're about the same thickness as valve covers. I fear going to Consolidated Compressor and blasting it myself because the metal is so thin.

    Got a cabinet bead blaster. It has a small door, so we'd have to see if your parts go in. Cabinet is 22" x 30", door is 13 5/8" x 16 5/8".

    Let me know.

    They do have small bead blasting cabinets at Consolidated. I use them all the time for various bike bits - never had an issue with thin metal.
