Porting China strokers? Search and read the posts of Egor...then PM him into your post about porting. Good luck! Scotty from Star Trek, "I think she's going to blow Captain!" Hahahaha!

No sucking up. ;)

One of the vendors that posts here stated that the Nipponese small engine builders were most highly upset about what was coming into the USA from China and put pressure on the FEDs. Parts(disassembled engines) will dry up at some point in the future but who knows when?

Way Off Topic: PM me the URL for the bobber frames...I'm just curious. I am shopping for a '93 TDM Yamaha ATM(counter balanced parallel twin). M/Cs can only be posted about in the White Zone or Heritage Lane.

assembling engines

NOT TRUE! I was informed by an email from EPA that the fine for assembling "illegal Motorcycle engines" was $35,000 per engine, and that they were lumping ANY 2-wheel engine into that class.

TRUE that they have not lowered the boom yet, but you may wish to post what kind of ciggarrettes you like, and what kind of condoms you may not be allergic to, so that when they come "a-callin" someone will put "money on your books' while you rot in jail!

It's ok if you are brave, and think that the smuggling goes unnoticed, just get your ciggarettes and "pin money" all settled befroe you get a "US Government Certified Vacation" at the newly remodeled facility of THIER choice.

Mike's response- very true- higlights the difference between what is legal and what you can get away with for a while.

You see- some people think that they are smarter than the law makers (and in some way they are) but they are not when it comes to writing laws. Well the importation of "parts" may techinically be legal, I can assure you that there is a law preventing the importation of something as parts with the intention of assembling an entire engine from the new "parts"- and, as Mike said, the assembling itself is illegal.

Just because a law is not enforced does not mean something is "legal".
