If that's not original, I'd be surprised. The attention to detail is too good. Usually clothes, hair and make-up give away the modern versions. Though she's looking down, the eyebrows don't looked...

hyosung

I lived in Korea when the GT 250 and later 650 was introduced. I'd read that the 250 was engineered to accept the 125, 250 and a 600cc Suzuki engine. Suzuki's licencing would have prevented the GT600...

2 cents... less service charge

my guess is it's heat related:
gummed up brakes or bearings that ease up when grease/fluid heats up and becomes more viscous.

Does the break line pinch anywhere?

Has the bike been de-registered in the UAE? (It should have the big blue export plate and paperwork.) If not, you may have to get that done before you can even try to get it into Canada.
