    Default Greetings from Okinawa-importing 800cc bike from US

    Greetings. My name is Mike and I recently immigrated to Okinawa, Japan. I have a GOJ residence card and am not SOFA status.

    I imported a 2009 BMW F-800GS along with my household goods shipment. I am currently trying to complete the registration process so that I can ride the bike.

    I have read through the process, including this thread.

    I'm trying to get the "E-Mark" ECE-78 Brake Certification from BMW, but not having much luck with it. I would prefer to take the motorcycle to Osaka for the emissions inspection, however, I may need to take the bike to Tokyo if I can't obtain the brake certificate. While I would like to complete the process myself, I am considering hiring a motorcycle shop near Tokyo that has experience with imported motorcycles. At this point I think it will be much quicker.

    Any recommendations for a motorcycle shop near Tokyo with experience regarding the inspection of motorcycles imported from the US?

    Thanks in advance,

    Mike
