Picture Attachment problem (09 Jul 2022)

Due to the extraordinary growth of the membership and resources, we are once again bumping up against hosting limits. I am working on a fix. In the meantime, the forum should function, but you won’t be able to attach images. Working as fast s we can to fix. Thanks for your patience. - Makotosun

That's a fun find! 

Seriously doubt it's bootleg...  early Japanese bike stuff often had goofed up spelling and translation errors. 

Here's a classic funny allegedly from a 1962 Honda manual:  www.reddit.com/r/motorcycles/comments/33...riding_instructions/

+1 on Mark's reply.

Some RD350s had, I think, Kick Stater instead of Kick Starter on some case covers.

So funny reading replies down Marks link. Gotta watch those Skid Demons lurking in that Grease Mud. I guess at least they gave it a good try & I've have no idea turning their one into English.

They might have stamped the J backwards in the mold. That said, I see all kinds of funny misspells on products from China and Japan.
