Hey. I'm at Philippines. 1 usd is like 50 pesos. So we're talking about around 20k including Tax. I'd spend without a doubt for my bike but that's a bit pricey felas. I mean I already bought this cdi that won't work to begin with. I paid like around 13k thousand pesos or 100 dollars more or less for it. I'm working to have it replaced by the seller but I'm not sure if they'd replace it. It's surplus from Japan and still I paid that high. So I hope yall can see it from my end. I'd be spending twice either way.. but I'm hoping I could get more like hook up the second time around. But that's just me..If it has a stated value of less than $200USD on the customs form there is no tax/duty payable, but it might well cost him more than the value of the part to bring it here. I've often wanted to buy inexpensive items on Amazon but the shipping has generally been exorbitant, so I have had to pass. I don't know about the Canadian postal service but I have ordered from the US using USPS and it has taken over three months for orders to arrive, and on a couple of occasions - it has never arrived because they offer no tracking outside the US.
I appreciate your good intentions - but it's probably not a practical option....and once he read your reply 'Canada' to his location question - I'm guessing that he lost interest.
But maybe send him a PM and see what he says.
