Anyone here ever bought a bike this way?

Have my eye on a couple of bikes and am thinking of going down the import route as the particular bike I'm looking for is thin enough on the ground and condition of the bikes/mileage and value for money etc way better,even factoring in the transport and vrt costs.

How did you approach the seller, ie work out a price after the back and forth and arrange transportation or work out a price,pay them a deposit and have the transport crowd check it over(am I right in saying Jarvis transport offer suchlike?)then pay the balance if it checks out?

Any other suggestions for transport besides Jarvis,who did you use/where was it picked up and cost...(I know this is a big variable but trying to get a rough idea if at... [Read More]

» Northern Ireland import question
Apr 04, 2022 - 10:50 PM - by bikewise
I'm looking at a bike that's on Northern Irish plates with last change of ownership up there being recorded as 2017 and first registered in 2002.
Anyone know will I just be charged vrt or is there vat and a customs charge too.
It has more than 9000 kilometres on the clock.
All searches seem to show conflicting results, it is a Japanese bike if that matters.
Thanks in advance.

» Anyone make use of the fine weather?
Mar 28, 2022 - 9:59 AM - by Scythe
Been pretty quiet here for the weekend so hope people got out and about.
Didnít get as much use over the fine weather as I would have liked but thoroughly enjoyed a blast down through Kinsale yesterday.
Didnít stop to take photos so hereís some I took after getting it ready.

Makes such a big difference having that extra hour of sun in the evening.

» Carbon Fibre Sheeting available here?
Mar 27, 2022 - 3:12 PM - by Sleazy Rider
Looking to get 2 pieces of cf sheeting aproximately 300 x 150 x 2 mm thick
Just wondering if there is anywhere here in Ireland I could get them either online or in person?

I can buy in the UK but don't want the uncertainty of supply times and customs bolloxks that I have had with a few bits from there already. not to mention vat and charges on top.Buying there is no longer viable in my opinion.

Ordered a few bits mid Feb and the DHL track and trace tells me it was shipped on the 16th of March but appears to be sitting in a warehouse in Germany since

Mar 25, 2022 - 1:54 PM - by efanton
So the IOM TT is supposed to be streaming all races on it own online channel this year for a single fee of just £14.99.

have been keeping an eye on the official IOM TT website over the last week or so but have yet to see a link to the stream or where you can subscribe https://www.iomttraces.com/

Has anyone successfully subscribed or know how to, or is this yet another casualty of Covid??

» How carbs work
Mar 24, 2022 - 9:40 PM - by choppergirl
Everything about carbs you needed to know..


The basic secret of carb function is that inside each carb are thousands of tiny gnomes; each with a small bucket. As you open the throttle, more of these gnomes are allowed out of their house and into the float bowl, where they fill the buckets and climb up the carb's passages to the intake, where they empty their buckets into the air stream.
But, if you don't ride the bike for a while, bad things can happen.

Tiny bats take up residence in the chambers of the carb, and before long the passages are plugged up with guano. This creates a gnome traffic jam, and so not enough bucketfuls of fuel can get to the engine. If it gets bad enough, the gnomes simply give up and go take a nap. The... [Read More]
