I've purchased a Honda CBX250H. A one year bike here in Canada, though it existed in almost every market other than the US.

Parts are inordinately hard to find aside from what Honda of Canada has (which they're not generous enough to post online). Lots of parts from the CBX250H are shared on the CBF125 as well as the CBX125 (JDM, UK markets).

Does anyone use Jauce or Amazon.co.jp to import to North America? If not, is there another online source I'm missing? I'm versed in Webike, Daxdodo etc, I'm looking for auction style sites.

Amazon.co.jp would not ship anything I have ever wanted to the usa, but I have heard something's will go. You can make an account and try.

Forwarding service connecting overseas customers and Japanese online stores [ Tenso.com ]

Is the alternative they are a forwarding service many have had good luck with.
Thanks, I'll check it out.

I just used buyee to ship some baja parts that I bought on yahoo auctions. They could not send me the gas tank though, so I had them discard it.
Thanks, that's now on the list too.

it looks like it uses an 80s xr/xl 250 rfvc engine..and forks..
It's almost built entirely from Honda's parts bins - only the panels are specific to the bike and even at that shared them (and everything else but engine, exhaust, carburetion and final drive) with the JDM CBX125.
The engine is closest to the 83-87 XL 250R SOHC RFVC. E start only - no decomp, single carb, 26HP - The XR has a closer ratio trans than the XL. Forks are common to the other similarly sized street Honda's of the day (XR/XL forks would be longer and larger diameter, no air valve or adjustment).

Maybe you're thinking of the NX250?
