Are the parts in Thailand that are available for bikes also available to ship overseas? I would think that we would have the same access to parts here that they do there. We just might have to order them in instead of buying them at a store.

You can order a lot of the Asian aftermarket stuff for these bikes from companies like Tyga, and others... shipping to the U.S. can be a bit steep, however. Some of the Asian stuff is good quality, some of it not so much. There also are the U.S. based companies like Yoshimura who make high quality items like rear sets, and FMF (Flying Machine Factory) for the best aftermarket, Made in the USA exhausts money can buy.

There are a few other aftermarket exhausts that are just as well made as the FMF's... Akropovic, and Yoshimura to name a couple. But the vast majority of the cheap ($200 and under) slip on exhausts are basically loud pieces of junk that won't last. We've had a number of recent threads over on CBR250.net about these cheap slip on exhausts blowing out, etc. Then there are all the cheap quality used exhausts that are listed in the 'Motorcycle Parts For Sale' forum, more often than not because they are just too loud... one would think that expecting an obnoxiously high dB level from an 8" muffler that sells for $150 would be kind of a no brainer, but you can't tell anyone that. They have to buy it because it 'looks cool', and then find out first hand how insanely loud it is.

What's amazing is that people keep buying this crap... it's all about price and looking cool. As with so many consumer products today, quality seems to often take a back seat to price and appearance.

really like the 'look' of the Powercore GP, however I'm relatively sure thats street ILLEGAL , i picture a similat buzzy drone (not as SERIOUS of course) as the Moto3 singles. Is FMF's only street legal product the APEX?
