    @gregt That's what I heard/found when I was looking to get one. NZ was the only other place (other than Japan) where the MVX250F was sold through Honda dealers. Everywhere else, it is a grey import. I didn't know about Jauce.com back then otherwise I might have bought one. I might be thinking of a different model, but I seem to recall the oil pump was an issue and the work around was to get rid of it and run the bike on premix. The rear cylinder conrod had a larger small end than the 2 front cylinders. I think they sorted those balance issues out when they got to the NSR250. I wonder if there are any English Workshop manuals floating around in NZ?

    I have no idea if the manual was ever available in English. I do know that a couple of the guys who contributed to the thread on KB are pretty clued up and have sorted some work-arounds for the known problems.
    I know it's probably bad form to recommend another forum - particularly a kiwi one - but in your place I'd have a search for it. I can't post links - old and with very poor internet, sorry.
    Probably a good idea to bring back here any tips or info you find...These things are rare now.

    @my67xr That's a good article. It looks like @DMC will have plenty of help from all over the place.
