    Re: how to properly sell a bike

    It depends on the day of the week and color of the bike. :icon10:

  5. Re: A great idea for a trip, but is it even possible?

    Yes

    Every conceivable scheme to get a bike into China has already been thought of and tried. The simple solution is money, it fixes everything.

    Re: New Benelli TRK502X with spoke wheels

    They never carried stock in the first place, never seen a 17" tube at any rural bike shop in all of China.

    Worth looking at as a reminder......

    Re: 650Tr clunk

    Bearings usually have numbers on them that you can cross reference to another bearing manufacturer to save money. 70 is crazy.

    Install them, ride the bike 500kms, check them again. If they loosen...

    It's an automatic oil changer. By not having enough oil, you keep adding oil, that way you always have fresh oil going into the bike. But seriously... I've been on a few rides with single cylinder...

    If you think getting your license is hard, wait until they crush your dreams about riding in Tibet. That's not going to happen without spending a lot of money.

    Re: CB500X in China?

    Thanks for clarifying... $35,000 USD for the AT in China is insane, the Thai price of $18,000 USD is much more realistic. Can you bring the Thai plated bike across the border?

    Re: battery chargers

    That's a nice unit, but the cost is pretty hard to swallow for a China bike. You can buy 4 batteries and a cheap charger for that kind of money in China.
