Parts Canada

Postby Hoser1 » Wed Jul 09, 2014 8:57 pm



Hi All; I am a new owner of an 82 GL1100, I am wondering where or if it's possible to order replacement parts here. Do I have to go thru a dealer? Any thoughts appreciated...

Depending what it is you may have to go to the dealership, although the older the bike the more difficult to get some parts.

A good place right in Ontario is GoldWingKing. I haven't bought anything there yet but did exchange some emails with the owner and seemed like a nice guy.

Went to the Goldwingking for a rear rotor for my 89 1500 and the one he tried to sell me for $150 looked just as bad as the one I had.Mine was dished bad,but I hadn't measured it.The one Paul had had been dished bad too,but someone had ground off the inner and outer ridges.So I asked if he had a mic to measure it and he didn't,but he scrounged up a vernier(which isn't the best for this purpose)and we measured it.It was with-in spec so I got thinking that maybe I should have checked mine.Long story short mine was with-in spec,so I sold the bike with it on.Goldwingking would be a last resort for me as his shop is as organized as a bag of hammers. JMHO.

BTW He is a nice guy
If I'da known it would last this long,I'da taken better care of it.

Yes, it is true that Paul of Goldwingking is a nice guy. I do not know if he rides or not, but he does not seem to know what it takes to put an order together. It took me four tries, and a purchase from a Kuryakyn dealer to get right what he sold me, and even then, I had to use the stuff he sold me in a different application than originally intended. I was trying to put some pegs on an Ergo II highway board setup instead of the boards, and finally had to use the stuff he sold me to replace the riders footpegs instead, and then get a kit for the highway pegs from a Kury dealer. It all worked out in the end but took about four months of back and forth. He was really good with the exchanges, but really slow to send replacement items. I think he is just too busy for words.

May have been a bad choice of words than when I said GoldWingKing was good. Distance prevents me from having any direct dealings with him. The email exchanges with him gave me enough confidence, at the time, to do business when the need arose. I may have to revisit that based on the reviews posted.

To answer the original question, YES, Parts Canada is a dealer only, stocking distributor.

Some, and I'll say SOME again, lol... can be bought at Auto Parts stores. My local NAPA (don't know if you have them in Canada) will order parts for me, if the part numbers cross over to NAPA parts.

I order almost everything online or off Ebay.


I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.
