Importing a bike for road use / compliancing etc.

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by bennjamin, Jan 25, 2011.

  1. hullo all - just wondering has anyone here personally imported a bike ( or used a company to import a bike) from overseas namely japan ? Im currently browsing importmonster / yahoo auctions. I have a spoft spot for a VFR400 R to work on ride and eventually race. If i can avoid buying one locally i will !

    Is it the same/a similar process to importing a car ? compliance for local registration included.
    Anyone have any recommendations Sydney based ???

    thanks for any ideas or experiences
  2. first there are some threads that answer this already

    search for "import"

    also there is a thread for japanese supplier

    search for "overnight parts from japan"
