    Hello,

    I am looking for a RS or TZ later model 250 or 125. Prefer bikes with known histories and in reasonably good shape in the US, preferably.

    Good luck :) My 5KE went really quickly earlier this year. They are hard to find. I've seen some nice NX5s and NXAs for sale in Europe on the FB groups. NX5s are 15-20K, and NXA's are 20-30K.

    Also, check with Steve at @SpeedWerks Racing He had a really nice 4DP for sale recently.

    I’m prepared for that but I hear there is complications with importing these things. That’s what I am not prepared for. But honestly I’m happy with a nice 125 too. It seems like a good way to go to learn. I’m no beginner that’s for sure but I have no road racing experience. I don’t like the idea of sending my money over seas and having no accountability for my transaction also.


    You the guy that has the 2000 rs over on TZ250.com? I sent you a pm about it. Didn’t see any indication that it was sold..

    I had forgotten about that listing... just edited it to reflect that the bike is no longer available. I still have it, but not selling it.

    I don't blame you about overseas transactions. There might be a lot of risk and paperwork involved. Good luck in your search.

    I know of an NXA and a NX4 in florida :cool: , Both are torn down at the moment.
    Just sent my TSR off last week to Ireland.

    Yeah that's mine that I sold earlier this year. The price is borderline on the high side, but its about as nice a bike as you can find anywhere.

    Yeah they sure are difficult to find. The ones in Japan all have unknown histories and some look straight roached, for Astro prices. Don’t want to buy a bike that’s going to grenade in 5 laps or something. I suppose patience is a virtue here. Prices are super high compared to what they were a couple of years ago. I’ve been loosely following the market for about 10 years now. All I really want is something in decent shape, doesn’t have to be perfect. I think a lot of these things just sit in people’s garages and are seldom if ever ridden. That’s the impression I get. Anyway, it’s become a bigger hassle than I expected but I soldier on. Probably going to go the 125 route until I see something reasonable come my way.

    New crank just went in the NXA over the weekend.( Hey its work in progress since 2012 …. lol ) , I have tons of stuff. Price would depend on what you want for spares ( I have pretty much everything and then some x 3 for an NXA and NX4 ) Both bikes when together are high spec ( WP suspension , full Brembo bits ( true billet masters , full mono-bloc calipers , narrow band rotors ) , ti hardware every where , NXA was DiSlavo's old bike ( minus True HRC kit stuff ), NX4 I have Jha PV kits , Full BPS ignitions for either bike , wheels ( full carbons for the NX4 , Forged mags for the NXA x 2 ), body work , gearing up the ying yang for either bike , rads ( kits and stockers for either bike ) , cranks , top ends , stands , tables , new bagged stuff no one would ever think of buying , FULL spare motor for the NX4 , full tranny kits for either bike ( every option ), NX4 was new in the crate 06.

    How much for each? Do you mean NX5 or are you talking about a 125? How much for the 250(s).

    Don’t want to broadcast my budget but maybe it would help some. I really need to keep it under 20. I don’t need a MotoGP spec bike.

    Oooh , NXA is gonna be about double that just for the bike and minimal spares. NX4 is a 125 , bike in lower spec with small spares like 11 or so

    Hello, thanks for the reply. Mainly interested in 5KE models. I’ve talked with him already. Prices are high for what they are and bikes are in Japan. Bikes also have unknown histories in terms of mechanical. Bikes look to be in questionable shape, a bit ratty. I feel that I would have to spend a lot to make these things worthy of being ridden.

    Why do you have to have a 5KE? A 4TW is just as fast in most people's hands. I sold a beautiful one just a few months ago for 11,200. They are fairly soft in pricing right now.

    I would certainly consider that if I could find one. I suppose if I’m going to spend this kind of money I want to get the bike that I really want. However, I haven’t seen too many of those for sale either. If you see either of these let me know.
