I had something similar for my Evo VIII.

Under carriage stiffening is great, but will impact your handling (ie, daily driving, etc.)

If you track a lot, worth it. You feel more connected with the car, steering input more evident.

BTW, can't find it on Rakuten: http://global.rakuten.com/en/search?...tl=0&k=bmw+cpm

I want this. I like how it is flat as it should give me more clearance for the meisterschaft pipe. 3.5 inches makes for some tight tolerances between the pipe and brace.

Looks like you have to use a forwarding service, which they provide. They will email you the total, then if you accept, they will ship the part and charge your card. I went through part of the steps just to see.

I have some bad news...the store on Rakuten that sells this part (Yatoh) will only deal domestically, and cancelled my order. So looks like we'll have to see if another store on Rakuten will carry it.

I brought CPM from below dealer in Hong Kong, they can also ship the CPM to oversea but seller need to bear the shipping cost and local tax.

Very good ride after installed, it simple make the chassis stiffer so that rear wheel stick on the road provide better handling and cornering.
