Yes, Manticore is correct.
The price for a V-ONE R (GRP) here in Japan is $219 with the Yen rate today $1 = 131 YEN. (28800 yen)
I'm currently stationed in Yokota AB, Japan.
Now as far as the price for the V-ONE RR im not sure. They still don't have it in stock at my local racetrack/store. But they think it will be around (33000 YEN or $251 if the YEN rate is the same as today.
Hope this helps.

Well I am very lucky for being here in Japan but there is the language thing, and for a first time on road guy like me it makes it sort of hard to ask questions and get answers.

I'll tell you one thing... Japan is V-ONE R Heaven, Just about every body drives one. And all the parts you want if you know what to get.
But in my case I have to do hand signals to the local racers for some advice on what to get.
So far I have made some mods to my V-ONE R but like I say is a slow proces!

Hey guys,

I need help on the OS TR break-in...

high end needle settings - 2 turns outwards from fully closed settings.
idle opening - 0.3 - 0.5 mm opening (how do I measure that???)
mixture - 2.5 turns inwards from flush position.

Am I correct with this break-in settings? THANKS!

That is what it state in the manual... so follow it first... the idle opening is just an approximation.... The engine should come to life after a crank or 2... adjust from there....

Should not have too much of a problem with that engine... After breaking in, standby another glow plug cos that A5 ain't gona last long...

The factory setting worked very well for my break in... plenty of excess fuel coming out of the pipe!
