if the dr is still current for rego, just submit an engine no. change.. now, ive got nfi how deep they check these things but if its just a 'change this to that', it should be sweet.. if they go as far as checking the series of the engine number and relating that to the make and model of bike, you may be in strife......

Mate, I went through some of this with QLD transport when I brought my Tenere in from the UK. First I had to prove to them it was a LHD.

Than to get the vin number I had to run it past a specialist engineer to check for ADR compliancy. He told me that there is no such procedure for bikes and that QLD transport even shows this on their system. I ended up getting the head of the department or something confirming this, but that wasn't enough for the cows behind the desk. As far as they were concerned if it wasn't on their system, it wasn't the case I had to fullfill the application as they knew it. It took several phone calls between me and their superiors before I could get them to talk to each other.

I would just wing it with a different enginer number. But in the end, scrutineering would always be difficult depending if how fine the'd go over it.

The fact that they are just robots filling the same shit out all day maybe a good thing. Lots of people are saying just put it in as an engine change and dont mention the fact that the engine's a twin.

Thanks for the info mate. Its the old school guys that no what there talking about. 3 out of the 4 engineers I have spoken to didn't seem to have a clue what they where talking about.
I'll give that fella a call next week to get some advice.

Accumulation of points, was traveling between Bundy and Brissy every week, lost the last few at Gympie at midnight mid week for driving straight through the Macca's carpark onto the road (on my bike) they were shut so I didn't stop, it was 6 deg and I was freezing so I just copped it. Should have argued it. Heartless barsterds followed me for a few K's before booking me, prob ran my plates and saw I was on a good behavior bond.

Itching to get back out there, makes me jealous reading all these ride reports.

now every one knows you shouldn't be on roads in gympie after 9pm your lucky they didn't take you away and use you in ritual killing.

you should be using this time to build your dream bike or you could just build an old heap of shit like mine
