I doubt that is the case I can't see Japan doing it. Thailand have their own brands that they manufacture and market. I wouldn't have no problem with buying Thailand made products but having to pay for import and shipping cost are a pain in the arse.I would just go with the products being made in Thailand that is being posted all over this forum. I think it should be a lot cheaper than getting it from Japan. The products from Japan might even be made in Thailand.
Not me! It's awesome having parts available before we even get our hands on them. Thankfully thailand got the bike before us, if it wasn't for them, we wouldn't have as many parts available.I am happy there is so much aftermarket support already. Who would want to wait for parts to be developed?
