I am looking to p/x my duke 690.

the dealer said because importing it would be
extremley difficult and time consuming, it
wouldnt be worth there while, unless I take a 
big drop on the deal. Surely this cant be right.
It says on the log book united kingdom
registration certificate. thanks.

It is simple to register a NI bike with DVLA, I don't think there is a cost, it should just be a simple exchange of log books at the Local Vehicle Registration Office. The dealer IS taking the piss, no surprise there then.

Call his bluff

If the bike is mainland UK registered then there is nothing to do at all, if it is registered DVLA NI then although it would have to be reregistered DVLA UK it is no more difficult than filling out a form at the local DVLA office with, at worst, a small administrative fee. I suggest you go onto the DVLA website for more details then hit the dealer with the true cost (if any) and call his bluff.
