Temporarily importing a Ttr into Australia
Permalink  
 


Hi there,

I'll be importing my ttr into Australia late October early November, the bikes registered in England and have a few questions regarding testing.

I wondered if anyone here runs a side stand kill switch? I've heard it's required for testing, is this true? 

My bike weaps a little oil, is this a problem?

The bike could be considered noisey dependent on opinion, how strict are the test?

Any other bits of advice which may be beyond just common sense?

Thanks for reading etc, looking forward to the visit!

 

Dan

Maybe this.

What is a CPD carnet?

A CPD carnet is an internationally recognised document for the temporary importation of vehicles for touring purposes. CPD carnets may be used by tourists or temporary residents to temporarily import vehicles to tour Australia. Vehicles imported using a CPD carnet do not need a Vehicle Import Approval from the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities.

If you plan for your vehicle to remain in Australia for more than 12 months, a CPD carnet may not be the right option for you and you may consider other import options. More information on the Vehicle Import Approval process can be found at the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities website.

Eligible vehicles

CPD carnets are accepted for certain types of vehicles including:

cars
motorcycle
scampervans
sports utility and recreational vehiclescaravans and trailers.

Applying for a CPD carnet

A CPD carnet can be obtained from automobile associations that are members of the Federation Internationale d'Automobile (FIA) or the Alliance Internationale de Tourisme (AIT). CPD carnets are issued for a fee by motoring associations in your home country. The National Guaranteeing Organisation (NGO) in your home country sets the applicable fee. In Australia, the NGO is the Australian Automobile Association (AAA).

On arrival, you will also be required to ensure registration and insurance requirements are met. Each Australian state and territory road traffic authority has specific registration and insurance requirements for vehicles. More information on registration and insurance requirements can be obtained from the AAA website.

Great info base.
Great question.

I have a 2005, which comes with kick stand safety switch. If my kick stand safety switch does not work, i would not be able to *legally* rego/ride it on the road

Sold in aust under the safety regulations that apply.

Having said that, if pulled up, i doubt any copper would test for this in reality.

Might be way different on importing a bike though. As do they test these things on landing???

Im not 100% about the testing and it may vary from state to state depending on where it enters australia, but if its anything like a temp or unreg permit in Vic the onus is pretty much on the owner for it to be 'Road Worthy', follow the condition of the permit, pay the fee and off you go. No inspection. Obviously if you're pulled over by the local copper and its not RWC you can be put off the road. Usually it would have to be pretty bad, no lights, crap tyres, dripping oil on the road, etc. Your average copper, unless you pissed him off and was a specialist traffic or a bike enthusiast wouldn't be checking sidestand cut off switches etc.

Yeah a copper will never check for this on side stand. Not his job. Although if you encounter one with a god complex. All bets are off.
Not being disrespectful to coppers, just been there a few times, and know what can happen.
I think very good advice, if the bike is tidy/clean nothing obvious, i'd image you should be right. I'm interested in this. Wondering how much it costs to transport a bike from .AU to .UK....

Perhaps i am coming from a different place NON bike related. I sold my HJ ute years and years ago. Picking up one for reasonable price has gone. Thought perhaps look at NZ..... oh my god the amout of things you need to do, to import a vehicle from NZ to AU. Tooooooooo much :) one things for sure, they have it figured out!! *noting* not dealing with apples and apples, more apples and oranges. Two different things.
