@clermont Thanks, yes, I had considered this as this is how we brought some bikes into Cambodia from both China and South Africa, however the law seems to have changed for the Philippines in Feb 2018...no more motorcycle parts...and live Piranha...
Thats said, I don't want to go to that level of effort again either, but I appreciate your input.

Philippine law restricts the importation of certain goods for reasons of national security, environmental and public health protection, order and morality, in addition to complying with international treaties and obligations. Prohibited goods include:
Used Motorcycle Parts, except engine (Executive Order No. 156); and
Live Piranha, Shrimps and Prawns (FAO No. 126, series of 1979).
