Swiss bike to Ireland vat and duty
Folks do u pay vat and duty from Switzerland to Ireland on vintage bikes ?
Uk imports March 2021 WTF ?
Well boys and if there are any girls left.
I tried to search here to see the craic with bringing a bike in, to no avail.
Q1 has anyone brought in a yoke since 1/1/2021 is there vat and vrt, if so how fakin much are they riding us for
Q2 I heard form my wives husbands cousins Aunty John joe, if you import from the north of Ireland itÂ’s only Vrt, NO, Vat, is that true or bulls*** ?
And if itÂ’s true, does a bike have to be on an NOI reg and not a mainland UK reg ?
Looking at importing something with 6001 miles. On the clock maybe 4/5 years old. Am I gonna get Vat and Vrt and two fingers in the a*** ?
And if so, where and when do I pay Vat, import duty whatever c***ing names they put on it, at the NCT centre where paying Vrt ?
Thanks in advance lads
Decent explanation of airbag vest types by the you-tube channel Fortnine.
You can’t put a price on your health but having never looked at them before all I can say is wow they are pricey for the latest models.
370 euro for the older helite model on fc moto site which I suppose isn’t too bad considering it replaces front/back and neck brace.
Not in the market for it atm but might suit some.
Finding correct year of bike from frame number
folks its sorted thanks
Weird noises K5 gsxr 1000
Was doing a “hard” pull from 2nd gear 100 km/h to 200 km/h and this noise suddenly appeared. I know these bikes come with automatic cam chain tensioners so why it would make such a noise if it is supposed to adjust itself automatically? The noise increases with RPMs and sometimes disappears at idle.
I am thinking it may be either the valves, rods or bearings or possibly cam chain. Anyway, someone maybe has experience with this and could recognize it from the sound. I have added a video of the sound during startup.
Mehole owes me a Yuasa
Bought a new battery after first lockdown, looks like I need another new one now. And before anyone says it, I don’t have private parking so can’t use a charger/tender. :doh:
