Great to have another Aussie onboard, my mate (Jason25) and I are from Melbourne too. What area are you in?

Both bikes look mint! How do you find the ASV levers? I have been thinking of picking up a set myself.

yer im from reservoir, so up in the northern suburbs..how bout u? i originally wanted the pazzo levers but motomummy dont ship them to oz coz their contract says they cant coz mladin imports hold the rights to import here. anyway ended up getin the ASV levers from them when i did a mass order on windscreen, levers, damper, spools and indicators shipping only cost me $25us...cant go wrong with the dollar these days! :toocool: i love the levers! they're nuts! look tuff as! i do all the ordering for my bike from the US, my yoshi pipe set me back $550 shipped and here for the same pipe no matter where u call they want $1200!

Your very close to me, I am just over in the Greensborough/Eltham area. Do a lot of riding up through Research, Yarra Glen, Panton Hill, Warrandyte areas. We should organise a ride, I have a few mates who will be up for a haul through the twisties on a Sunday arvo. :yes

Prices are nuts in Australia, especially considering the strength of the dollar as you mentioned. Its just the importers dont often adjust their prices based on the dollar (unless they are loosing money) so we get screwed even more. Their loss, they will just loose more sales to overseas.

Welcome mate. I am the other aussie mavric is talking about. Nice bike. I hade the same prob with the pazzo levers but eventually found somebody on ebay willing to ship them after many saying no. I fitted them this weekend and they look the business. The 3 of us should hit the twistys some time.

Hey mate, we got the stands from a company called Kaneg. They have an ebay store here and their website is here. I am very happy with the quality of them and their service was excellent, fast shipping and great value for money. I think we paid about $190 (for the front and rear).

They are great when your working on the bike or cleaning it plus they look the business :cool:
