Cue the chirping crickets.Why does Amsoil cost double here compared to USA?
Since it does cost ones to ship it, and the labor Govt loves it import duties and excise and now we have the AUD that is better than USD

Probably the same reason the Bikes cost double. Who knows????.
Vehicles are sold at what e market will bear, and sometimes we get stuff for cheaper than the country of origin sometimes not.

But that's key I love Asia most things are cheaper here even my Aussie magazines and Aussie wine and food.

Like my mate recently found out. This local Paid Asian gf is so much more than the original here. He got a massage bath and happy ending for 1500 Which is about 44 aud

Hey Shed thanks for your input buddy.Quick question,at the last Amsoil convention do you remember anyone with a soothing voice say look into my eyes ,look into my eyes,look into my eyes.It was only about a year ago when we were able to import our HD parts for about half price.Weird how dealers and manufacturers can only come up with lets screw our customers and we'll be successfull.Lot of hypnotism goin on.

Australia has only 23M population compare to the US which has 400M population.

The US has the shear buying power and large market to sustain the lower cost of goods.
:them:

We are a bees dick on the world population scale........which equates to manafacturers not giving a shit about us.........

Half the trouble is probably the importers of all this stuff.If we could just buy direct from US things would be a lot cheaper.Bring on Chinese Amsoil!

Labor Govt increased the excise and import duties on oil imports. Also freight cost a small fortune.

Mate as long as Aussies line up to buy they will screw its not cost freight it's what the market will bear. So start buying off e bay after a while that will get "Corporates" attention.

When I was at MV Agusta even with staff price it was cheaper to buy parts over the net.

But for some things go to MCA Liverpool tell the Silver Fox your a mate of mine and he usually can do good!

Amsoils doubles your drain interval and you use one oil filter for twice as long so it is cheaper or you can be like Matchy former HD warranty rep in Oz and use cheap arse Valvolin but he use to change it every couple of 000

Shit but a 30k bike and whinge about a bit of oil

Next you'll ride on bald tyres to get the most out of them.
Used nothing but Valvoline in my other bike a 1983 Kwaka z1300 six 29 years old now 300000 plus k's doesnt burn a drop. Must be cheap sh*t oil. It will do me used in all my cars had a V N Commodore body gave up before the motor did 400000 + k's.
Not hanging it on more expensive oils each to their own
