It`s 26 quid I`m afraid.
I think you have to fill out RF104 ie change of details form --- `phone local motor-tax office to check.
Glad it`s up and running.
Best regards R.

Yes you have to do the form and take or send it in.
You would think that once the things is old enough they would transfer automagically!
But no; do the form or pay the higher tax.

What if you have an 89 import on a 90 plate? Is it 30 years on an Irish reg?

Possibly a 750cc Africa Twin engine installed? I'd heard about it back in the day.
Found this with a quick google:

High compression pistons,high lift cams.... carbs reworked. Itís at 663cc currently but looks like valve seals have dried out (sat up for several years)so if Iím going in to do them Iíll put some bigger pistons in too

Did this years ago,and it was a great improvement in some regards,but youíre limited on gearing and the crank and flywheel are too lairy for the chassis...the 663 spins up much quicker and revs higher....it carryís the bike along at a nicer pace,and you donít feel itís trying to push you wide on the bends.
