Where are you getting parts beside dealer

Hey guys
Looking for a canadian place to get Castrol engine oil and some parts like air filter.

I ll get my new used bike Saturday and wanted to get some new fluids, filter and a good overall look over. I m well equipped and can do most of the maintenance on the bikes I ve owned. The bike has 25 000km on it. It s a 2014 GT

Been looking for that Castrol power 1 5w40 but can't find any so as the air filter. Might end up at the dealer.

Any inputs?

Thx

Suggest you get a K&N air filter, cost about $44.00 down here. It'll be the only one you ever have to change.

Duane,
I forgot to snag the K&N air filter I had in my 2012 bike when I sold it. Where are you finding them for $44?

Thx guys
Always had K&N filters on my vehicules in the past. Might go that way again. Amazon .com is obviously more generous than Amazon.ca
I m stuck with the canadian version sadly

All - you may want to spend some time reviewing Dave's excellent tests and reports re: oil and air filters - on BestRest Products: https://bestrestproducts.com/

Especially before buying the least expensive filter...

Thanks Duane. I had seen a listing on Amazon for $85 but of course your listing is a better deal. I'll order one, thanks.

You need to make sure the oil you buy is compatible for motorcycles with wet clutches. The wrong additives wil not allow the clutch to hook up..
