« on: July 11, 2018, 09:35:07 PM »
Just came across this by chance.

Anybody seen this before?
I wasn't aware until now there was a system available for the 200.

Interesting - thanks for this, Peter.
Around the £300 mark, so may be something I look at in the future.
Not remotely bothered about the electric start and as long as the original parts are retained they can always be fitted when it comes to selling.

Where did you find the price? I couldn't locate the kit on the online shop so would require contacting them with kit part no. and enquiring about price/ordering.
Yeh, I'm not desperate about the electric start and given that replacement points are useless at least it's another option.

Thanks John, but doesn't link you to check-out.
Not a problem at the moment. Maybe in the future.

Yeah, that's what I did, but not exactly clear is it?
It's almost as if they don't actually want anyone to buy it  :o

Oh well done that man for finding that!
Healthy spike in prices too to fund the new website no doubt.

Edit - Not in stock.

Thanks, Peter.

For anyone who may be interested, I emailed them to enquire about stock availability and got the following reply.

"Thank you for your interest in our products.
Please be informed in our e-shop currently there is mentioned „out of stock“ for all the items we produce.
We are starting new bussineess and this takes time to have the products on the stock.
You can place your order in our e-shop
https://www.vape.eu/yamaha-rd200-type-397-and-type-1e8-12v150w
But please take into consideration the requested systém no 783379900 shall be despatched in 4 – 5  weeks after the order and payment is done.
 
Thank you for your apprehension.
 
Best regards,"


Current exchange rate it works out about £310 and probably postage on top of that. They are in the Czech Republic so there shouldn't be any import charge/duty etc.
