Where are you?

What, no one rides EX500 in Asia? What about Japan, isn't made there?
Come on and represent y'all..

Re: Where are you?

Actually, I think the EX is manufactured in Thailand. Fact check, anyone?

Re: Where are you?

Really I know its a Japanese copany, but you might be right. Than, still where are the Asia riders? I can't believe that, no one rides EX500 in Asia...

Re: Where are you?

They were made in Japan, mine has that stamped just about everywhere. The newer ER650 is made in Thailand. I live in Cambodia. Mine was an import (listed as a 250 for tax reasons). Importer was a useless spoiled kid, dropped it, scared himself and went crying to mummy. Sold it to a nice English gentleman who was leaving in a hurry and sold his yellow (nothing it perfect) 06 to me for $1000. Bargain.
So far, my impression is, it's quick, not fast and heavy. It's not really much use to me, to be honest. The roads in Cambodia are some of the worst I've seen (I've ridden through the Middle East and around Asia so that's actually saying something) and it's hard to make any speed due to the terrible driving. The ground clearance is an issue, as is the lack of suspension travel.
Otherwise, liking the bike a lot. I'm used to sports bike and fancied it as soon as I saw it but my heart is in big enduro singles now.
Plan is to pop a more enduro friendly front end on and jack the rear up so it can handle life here a bit easier.

Re: Where are you?


Its an island off the west coast of Malaysia just a one hour ferry ride from Thailand.
I have a 94 gpz - purple black mica and a 150cc yamaha fzi.
I moved here 07 from the UK.
NO REGRETS - except for the delay in getting parts and the fact DUCATIMAN lives in America ( carb trouble )
