Re: Asiatradingonline.com.. Complete Shite?

Hi krusin. Yeah pretty much actually. I had to spend a bit of cash on some repairs they didn't disclose. To be specific, the top end needed rebuilding and a bit of electric work needed tidying. I was shocked they actually gave me 10,000 baht towards it.

I'm not happy with what I had to go through, but everyone is shocked I got anything out of them. I researched them before buying and they had a good rep from what I could tell. Anyway it runs really well now. I'll be getting the front shocks re-sealed and some other bits and bobs before I sell it. If I kept it I would finish getting the headlights sorted. They work but have one setting, do not look very "finished", and the beam is not as tight as I'de like it. The fairing is a from a 2005 CBR600R, and I have seen some nice replacements lights for sale on E-Bay and other places. Relatively difficult/expensive to get stuff like that in Thailand.

I'll miss it, but I am selling it now because Thailand has recently struck a deal with Kawasaki to build and sell big bikes here for less then what they go for abroad, which makes sense..no transport costs or duty. And I have my eye on an ER6-f (probably called the Ninja 650R in Canada as it is in the states) which will be released later this summer for somewhere between 225,000 and 280,000 baht depending on who you believe. (That's about 7500 to 9300 CAD) Similar bikes from Honda, Yamaha, and Suzuki range from 450,000 to 650,000 baht. (15 to 20k CAD) We're all buzzing about it.
