    For Canadian shoppers, check out http://www.petes-superbike.com/english/motrcycles/tires.html I doubt you'll get a better price than his.

    Warning: Eveything states that it is "in stock", even if it is not. They will not notify you if there will be any delays in shipping. So if you're in a rush, call to confirm availability, before ordering.

    i just bought set PR3 from revzilla, was $306 shipped, was hard to search online cause everytime you find a cheaper price it's on a smaller tire, go to site and pick VFR size and it cost more.

    I've tried clicking on the AMT links but I get an error message. Are they gone?

    I was on that site yesterday. Can't get there today. Must be a problem on their end.

    Two other places to check www.motosport.com and www.jcmotors.com

    If you find a price you like at motosport, motorcycle superstore or cycle gear, if you can PM me, I get a referral from them. Shameless plug kind of, but it don't hurt to ask. It's not a monetary referral just something that helps me out.

    +1 on JC Motors. I've purchased quite a few items from them, tires being one of them. However, if buying online, I have gravitated to Jake Wilson if it's for tires.

    Large online stores do not sit on prices, especially tires. The competition is like war. Just because one dealer has deals today or had deals six months ago is not a good reason to not shop around.

    I do not just blindly buy from one store because the last time they had the best price, I always compare before I buy, and so far every time I have checked, Jake Wilson has had the lowest price on what I was looking for when it came to tires. Sometimes I'll price check a couple of weeks before I'm ready to buy and then the day of purchase, I'll do another price check. The other factor in all of this, is buying from a reputable dealer and/or from places I have a buying history with. Buying from a place just because the cost is lower without knowing anything about them IMO, can sometimes be penny wise but pound foolish. I've heard and experienced a few horror stories with places that have questionable reputation or purchase/return policies. Waiting weeks for an order to ship or having to pay charges for restocking or "other" hidden fine print fees can often over shadow any initial savings you might get on the initial purchase. As with everything internet related, doing your research before buying can not only save you money, but bad experiences and headaches too.

    Darn! I thought what I said was the same thing only more to the point and without all that personal baggage. What would be nifty is to play a little show and tell here and out some of those online robbers who have taken you to the cleaners.

    Never said I got taken to the cleaners. The Internet shop I had an issue with has nothing to do with MC products and was a while ago, so it wouldn't be worth researching to "out them", as my so called baggage here was pointing out some of the things to leary of.

    However if you must know, the issue I had was having to wait 3 weeks for the order to actually ship. In this case it would have been worth paying the 5-10 extra bucks to buy it from someplace else who actually had it in stock.

    If you don't have the time to "out" some of those outfits that can't seem to do straight deals, how aboot a medium size list of those that do?

    EZ to find oot if something is in stock or that some of these outfits have to order from some other outfit, by calling them. Tell them what it is you want or need and ask if it's in stock. The clue here is that the IT dude who is the HMFIC of the computer operation doesn't give a rats ass if fringed floorboards for a 1947 Indian 74 are in stock or not.

    Following the drift here this applies to whatever it was that took three weeks to hit your mailbox. This does not include tires. A very large mailbox is needed for tires.
