Question by Captain pickle: What would I have to do to get a motorbike from the states registered in Canada?
I am looking at buying a bike in the states. Mainly since the prices are cheaper. After paying duty and getting safety tests done on the bike would it be cheeper still? And does anyone know how much it would be? I am looking at spending between 2000-3500 dollars for the bike.

you will pay duty on an import bike, gst, and an riv fee of 195 bucks if it’s less than 15 years old. the duty and gst are assessed against your purchase price.. i’ve imported harley’s only, so i couldn’t say how much the duty is on jappcrap, harley’s have no duty because of nafta.
then you have 45 days to receive a form from riv and bring it in to a crappy tire location for certification. you will need a recalls clearance letter from the manufacturer as well (not just from a dealer). there’s not really that much to it. visit www.riv.ca, and don’t cave in to a customs broker or a ripoff website offering you their services, you can do it all for free yourself. the only things that can cost you extra are modifications to make the bike meet canadian standards if it doesn’t already, and the americans will fine you if you don’t notify the port you wanna bring it home through 72 hours in advance for them to check the title for theft or liens.

I had a suzuki kitana i had to do the same thing. I would say take the air box off, then disconnect the the carbs from engine. They have brackets on them so they will stay together. then just trace the throttle and choke cables and unscrew them.
