This is probably directed towards PKay more than anyone else...


The second (don't ask, it's a long story) KR250A turned up at my joint on the weekend, and I now have (nearly) enough parts to make a decent one out of the two.

So to start the part hunt rolling, I'm missing the small, round radiator access cover in the RH fairing (as seen in the pic).
Anyone got one?
PKay?

I reserve the right to bore the forum about parts for this kerjigger into the future ;)

Interesting project Paul, good luck with it and post up your progress. The good news about this project is it isn't an orphan hybrid GS650.

The only place I've seen one mate was on JAUCE. They had piles of A series bits. I can't help you sorry I have one for each of mine and that's it.

What colour are you going? My good one is red so I am going green and white on the next one. I am going to get my paint guy to see if he can get the tank graphic made up (I need one for both of mine) as well as the graphic for the radiator cover. You'll find that the graphic set will need to be made as nobody seems to either have them or have made them.

So does this mean I now have competition for KR250A parts? I've been trying to corner the market for a while now - I'm sure I've got enough to restore mine but I keep buying bits and sticking them in boxes.......

I would also like you to bore the beejeezus out of us so I can use this as a template for my pending resto.

Ta for the info.


This one won't be a concourse resto - I just want to get it running and registered and ride it around a bit to relive my misspent youth...
I'm going to do the absolute minimum to it to achieve that - I likely won't even be doing a lot of repainting, if at all, and I'll try to bring the brakes back from the dead without replacing too much if I can get away with it.

WCPGW?

I'll check JAUCE - there's a few more bits I need other than the cover.

And, I've been told it's folly to try boring the living shit out of the little buggers as the bottom-end isn't all that up to the job.

Geez Paul, I wish you had explained to me how to 'deal' with JAUCE...


To bid on anything you need to deposit funds to the auction site itself before you can make a successful bid, plus 'transfer' fee of course.
If you win the auction you are hit with a 'sellers charge' and 'bank charge' quite apart from any currency conversion fee.
Then, you have to stump up for a 'local delivery charge' which is the so-called cost of getting the item to the auction site from the seller.
All the while, I haven't yet paid for any postage and handling charges to Australia.

Jesus titty-fucking Christ, what a load of absolute complete and utter shite in a handbag.
First and likely the LAST time I will ever deal with them.

And people complain about eBay?

The pain isn't over yet Paul, re- packing the parts for International postage fees on top of the actual postage charges to follow.

Guys - fuck Jauce. Find it on Yahoo Japan, and then email Jesse Streeter http://jessestreeter.com/
Yes, you have to send him the money before he bids for you, but he's excellent to deal with. Streeter is an Aussie living over there, he accesses his Aussie bank account for transfers and shit - works out much cheaper than JAUCE or BUYEE.
Streeter will quote you the costs.

Pretty sure I've mentioned Streeter before for buying from JP.
He's good people.

Stuff on Yahoo looked rubbish although $35 for one exhaust was a good price.

Yeah and streeter does it for love... not
these sites are performing a service so they charge for it, or they simply wouldnt exist, theres not much differance between any of them.
hears a comparision



Auction closing price

50,000 yen Jauce

50,000 yen Streeter



commission

4400 yen (400 yen+8%)

4800 (40000 @ 10%10000 @8%)



Depositing fee

fee 2185 yen (40 + 3.9% )

(whatever bank fees apply possibly 0 if to aus bank)



Domestic delivery fee

1200 yen (may vary)

1200 yen (may vary)



Japanese Banking fee

300 yen (flat fee)

(cost but no idea what that would be assume simular)



TOTAL

58085 yen

56300 yen


































Difference 1785 Yen
Approx 22 aussie bucks cheaper in this case, and still havnt paid packing and international shipping.

how much to pay depends how bad you want the part, simple as that.

Never said he did.
My point still stands - Streeter is a good guy, and he's not just some automated system like Buyee or Jounce.
