We have gone through and made a map of the items in our warehouses:
This is tentative and has possible inaccuracies, but should give a fairly good indication of the types of things we have, and if you print it out before visiting the shop, we hope it will assist in finding your parts.
If you are in the Lower Mainland of BC or northern Washington State, you can stop by our retail shop and search for your own parts. Our two warehouses are sprawled out a bit, but are reasonably well organized. We will give you directions on where to find your items, but there are several things you can do to optimize the retail experience:
- Know what you’re looking for.
- Know your bike’s exact make, model and year.
- Bring in your old part for comparison.
- Take a picture of the thing to be replaced if bringing it in is inconvenient.
- Have a manufacturer part code or SKU.
Out of concern for both your safety and our insurance rates, we require that you wear a hardhat when in the parts inventory area (yes, we provide them). Once you have your hardhat, we will give you instructions on where to find your items, such as, “Go to the top of the stairs, take your first right, go all the way down and there’s a bin with those things on the top shelf.”
Generally, parts are organized in 3 ways:
- In bins by bike model and often year. A bike gets taken apart and the useful parts get dumped into their own bin, or in a bin with other versions of that same model.
- In bins by part type. This means bins and boxes full of shifters, footpegs, levers, CDIs, headlight buckets, regulator/rectifiers, etc, often separated by manufacturer. These will occasionaly be labeled with the original bike model.
- In an area. Larger items such as fairing pieces, radiators or exhaust systems, or semi-generic items such as shocks and forks, will all be grouped together. We try to label items with the source bike, but this is not fully consistent.
It will frequently make more sense to simply order aftermarket new parts rather than hunting for OEM equipment. This applies to items such as mirrors and grips. We stock a wide array of new parts, mostly consumable items like tubes, tires, batteries, fork seals, and spark plugs.
We are open:
Tuesday – Wednesday – Friday 10:00 – 5:30
