They usually have several items on fleabay; check there, for better pricing, before purchasing directly.

Great company for hard to find parts. Some stuff is $$ cuz they know you don't have a choice. Other stuff I have seen price pretty well. They have a storefront. Bought there several times over the years. Great company fast shipping and hard to find stuff. Check ebay. First. Usuall better pricing.

They have tons I want, but shipping to Canada is an absolute mess. I hate them for that, they make it hard to buy from them. "Wakeboard Edition" decal, $11 shipping to US, $67 to Canada. How is a sticker $67 to ship? Then pay tariffs on top of that.

Anyway, that's my "shipping to Canada" rant. You're American, so you're all good. They have lots of new old stock replacement parts not available anywhere else.

They are legit. Purchased a hard to find dome decal for my 2004 197TT.

They will negotiate too. They buy from OEMs for pennies on the dollar so most of what they sell, they paid almost nothing. They even had crate Indmar engines when MC changed over.

Definitely legit......We have one of their outlet stores about 30 miles from my house. Looks like a dump in there. Stuff all over the place. If you know what you want, you will probably find it in there somewhere. :headbang:

I have used them too, for a bunch of misc. stuff. Absolutely no problems, and they DO have some random things you won't find elsewhere. I agree with the comment about checking EBay first, usually shipping is cheaper that way. Hey, where is Canada anyway? Maybe it's SUPPOSED to be that expensive if it's like a whole other country or something!

It only goes one way though, I can ship to America for the same I can ship to Canada. Retailers charge 2-3 times regular shipping charges on the regular, claiming 'tariffs included', but UPS and FedEx always collect upon delivery anyway. It's annoying...

Just sign on as a new state, problem solved 8p

Would be extra entertaining because Texas egos would take a huge hit becoming the 7th largest state :D

BTW, agree with general comments above on GLS. Bought 2 ebay items from them with no problem.

Just got my Z5 rack from them.
They charged me $250 for shipping and packaging ...
The thing was packed on a Pallet with a least $200 of packing materials.

Needless to say it was unscathed ....
