    If I lived where you do there would be no problem....you have thousands of them there.....two stroke street bikes have been unavailable here since 1985.

    Which means the dealerships have no idea what this is, and the breakers are even more clueless.....and no parts on a VJ22 are interchangeable with anything else sold in the states.... So everything has a big post cost when I do find a good part overseas

    this is very unfortunate.
    I ordered most of my parts from suzuki which helped loads
    but myy understanding is that suzuki can only sell parts for what they sold.
    so a vj23 is hard to get parts for here in the same way over here.
    Try thetuningworks.co.uk as they have it all
    I do feel your pain.... I live in the most isolated capital city in the world

    Harley Davidson has quite a rich history don't they..

    Good find on the Suzuki's. Good to see the projects prevail through thick and thin.

    Guys if you need help sourcing parts then PM me as I am here in Japan and tend to stumble across loads of stuff..
    I picked up a complete crank for 2000¥ only yesterday and have sent bits to america, australia & the uk..

    $$$$$

    When I know I have the money, you will be the first I contact....Everything is hinging on the VJ22 SP, and VJ21 deal I've been working on...... I need a swing arm for sure on the VJ22 I have right now....If I don't get the one I'm hoping this week, I'll be looking for some help from the other side....

    Some MAGTEK wheels for my NSR would be nice too.....

    projects for eternity

    I could'nt pass on this.....and the money I saved from getting this, instead of the two RGV's I had lined up, will cover the rebuild cost of the VJ22 I'm working on now.....hopefully with some help from Stuboy in the land of the rising sun.
    This 86 GSXR1100 needs a lot of work too, but it will look good sitting till I get to it..... after I get the two stoke smoking again.....

    Nsr...

    No progress on the Nsr.....I took it down the road a few times last year with no title, plates, lights, bodywork, or even ignition switch....it was setting for several years, yet after kicking about 10 times it fired....warmed up, and felt like a 120 mph bicycle......this will be a fun bike when rebuilt
    I did the rgv first because I wanted a bike for the road like my rs250 track bike...and getting parts is marginally easier.... The nsr250 r5k was a one year only bike....

    sweet, glad to see you're slowly going to rebuild both bikes. Are you on NSR World?

    Back onto the RGV... are you going to change the spring rate to suit you?

    Shock

    Yes, I plan on changing spring for sure, probably make longer links to compensate for longer shock, and I want to get shock revalved for lighter bike also....have email race tech several times with no response....
