    NEWBEE loking for parts and advice

    I have a 2003 blue MSX that my wife seems to think rides lower than our red one. I have been told the following.

    The early 2003 models had a 4deg wedge installed, should be swapped out for a 6degree, also an upgrade to a 2004 ride plate which is 4mm thicker than the 2003 is in order. That will lift the bow and increase top end 5-6mph.
    If after the mods it seems to "hunt" or wander a bit at max speed changing to a SL650 intake scoop will sort that out.

    IF this is true. were do I get the parts. I am in Canada and if its not a snowmobile I am out of luck.

    Thanks

    Where in Canada?

    Parts can still be sourced. Sometimes with a little more running around...

    Welcome to the Hulk

    Click below for the service manuals, parts sources, and other useful info.

    A number of the usual sources will ship into Canada.
    Polaris PWC Parts Sources

    Used parts, I suggest you start with John Zigler.

    New parts, you might try PartsPitStop, which has a specific mention on their web site regarding Canadian shipments. At the moment, you have to order parts by part number, not PWC model.

    You can look up and cross reference part numbers up on the Polaris Industries web site.

    Choose your courier carefully to avoid excessive border brokerage fees.

    USPS (US mail) is often the least expensive, as Canada Post only charges $5 in fees, plus whatever sales taxes apply.

    UPS tends to have high brokerage fees into Canada.

    FedEx varies, but surprisingly the higher cost 'overnight' FedEx service can have lower border fees than FedEx ground into Canada. So the cost premium for overnight isn't as much as it first appears.
