Welcome to our world. That's why we end up bypassing locals and importing everything. You don't want to know what 6 pot calipers or rims etc go for.

:laugh ..Exactly Steve...The flipside is seeing what RGV's etc sell for in the US...I was sending complete RGV banana arm swingarms to the US around 5 years ago..Being the retard i am it was at cost,that being US$41 + shipping.
I had guys almost crying when i said i could get running RGV250's from just under US$400

How many times have i seen posts whining about $600 + TL engines :O

The US exchange rate has been low for a few years now.

How much for this stock with cans 98 TLS ?..It might look familiar.

US$6300..The same bike would have cost US$4100 in 2000



Here are some quotes for TLS parts converted to US dollars.

One BARE front fairing half. US$359
One indicator $77
One fake carbon air intake $52
Two Yoshmura stainless cans..wait for it US$1005

Remember the pic i post with the three Ohlin's shocks..NZ$5018

under my mushroom??? :lol

Approximately US $2,154.90

Still too high -I'm going back under the shroom...

I am across the ditch from the Aussies but..

A good TL engine here in NZ would go for around $2500 at the wreckers,about US$1675..... TLS's range from say $6500 (US$4355) to maybe $11000 (US$7370)..... but a brand new SV1000 is $12000 (US$8040)

The RRP on a brand new 1997 TLS was $16000 (US$6550) the exhange rate was 41 us cents = nz$1 back then,67 cents right now......You got a free set of Yoshi or Two brothers cans and a set of tires thrown in.....by 1998 you could bargain into a new TLS for as low as US$5822.
