Hey Bengan...

Try:

Max Pitts

Peru, Indiana 46970

Phone#:
(765) 472-2423

He can ship overseas. And if i remember right it's only about $500 or somewhere around there for shipping.

Talk to Aaron Pitts.

Bengan-man, do yourself a favor and buy a tiket to the good ol USA, preferably somewhere in the south where you can ride all year. get yer new warrior here and break it in riding around this huge fabulous country of ours. we, most of us, are very freindly and enjoy having visitors come stay a while. when you get tired of us,(like thats possible?) you n your new scooter can ship bak home. chances are you'll want to stay. its good livin here. its better livin in Texas!

It's tempting to purchase a bike from US, looking at the current price difference.
I considered it myself, but after further investigation I found out that most bikes offered in US are '01 model (at least the offers I got), whilst the bikes introduced in Europe are '03. I don't know to which extent Yamaha updated the bike from '01 to '03, but it was anyway a point for me. Finally European legislation and serviceability has kept me from buying the bike in US.

Anyway; Good luck with your bike!

Bengan, Keep one thing in mind, these US bikes will be MPH and not KM/hr. But you should be able to change that very easily. Also ask about customs in Sweden, if it is anything like the uS, you want to be sure to learn the system before you try to bring the bike. Many dealer here make you sign a form that "YOU CANNOT EXPORT" this motorcycle. This is due to agreements they have with the manufacturer. But this not apply if you buy it used. That is somebody buys it for you...

In US you have to leave an impound for several months.... Do your investigation and you will learn what it takes.

the change from km/h to mi/h is very simple. my buddy had his on metric when he first got it. he would stop every 60 mi. for fuel and got on my nerves. that was when his odometer read 100 and he thought he needed it because we all told 100-120 mi. before fueling. it was actually pretty funny when we realized what the problem was. good luck with the bike shopping. i had enough troubles just going from ohio to pennsylvania.

There will be more to it than just shipping fees, there will be import duty and documentation fees involved also.
And then there are the issues mention by Bismark, like he said make sure you do your homework on this one.
It could turn round and bite you in the ass.

ONe loop hole in the US system is that you can bring in the bike in several parts and then register it as a specially constructed vehicle. This is how most gray market bikes are brought over.
