Refer to this website to start: https://www.customs.gov.sg/businesses/i ... er-service

This basically tells you that you must pay GST on the purchase plus tax, insurance, and freight.

If you are purchasing a replacement engine of the same type and size presently on the bike, you probably won't have an issue. However, if you are planning on doing a swap to something else, you may wish to check with LTA regarding modifications allowed.

The model number has to match exactly and this can be complicated if the bike is a rare model or a special homologation for Singapore. You need to have the bike/car LTA inspected after replacement. I would actually double check with LTA first. It is much easier to have the engine rebuilt in all honestly unless it is completely destroyed.
