Hello everyone. Basically moving from my 07 R6 to an SP1 here fairly shortly. Always been a huge fan of RC's ever since they were first produced back in 2000. The RC I'm looking at has ~12k miles on it and the owner sounds like the type of person who takes very good care of his toys. I'm going to list out the mods he's done and I would like to know your guys' opinions on them:
Moriwaki Limited Edition Slip-On Exhaust
PCIII USB with Dan Kyle Map
Scotts Steering Damper (Recently serviced and includes anti theft mount)
Speedo Healer V2
PowerBronze double bubble windscreen
Galfer Front, rear and clutch lines
Galfer Front Wave Rotors
Watsen LED front turn signals with inline resistor's
Intergrated rear LED's
Custom Dynamics Flasher relay since all indicators are LED
White LED backlit gauges done by Bluegauges.com
Vortex bar end sliders
Vortex rear spools
Vortex 16/41 combo
About 1500 miles on Pirelli Diablo Strata's
Pro Grip Gel Grips
Battery Tender Plug In
What I'm interested in was the choice on gearing. From what I have researched so far, it looks like he's only got up 1 tooth in the rear and left the front stock. Everything else looks straight forward and I'm getting really excited to see this thing next weekend. Tell me what you guys think!
Welcome! Totally nice bike! I have a 2000 also. Coming off a later R1 it'll be interesting to see what you think. That's really low milage. And that exhaust is to die for! pretty rare these days on a sp1. Your gearing is pretty mild. I run 15/42 on a 190/55 tire. Still uses the factory 104 links, but it is a tight fit. Probably work better with 106 links, altho I don't know anyone yet with that combo on a SP1.
Grab That Bike!!! It's loaded!!!
Whoops, my bad. That was pretty obvious too. R6, not R1.
And you forgot to list the HRC resevior socks. That alone bumps up your dyno numbers!
Seriously, take a couple tools and politely ask to inspect the engine.
You should only need a #3 phillips, a 5mm allen for the side fairings, and the lower front fairing just has mostly push clips except the bottom two are 5mm allen. If it's got the stock harware that is.
Madbuyer is the one to ask on that. I believe he's a honda tech. We have a few more techs too.
Start a new thread to catch their attention. Buying a RC51-What do I look for?
Or something like that.
Or just wait, some of them will check in probably.
Just thinking, Budoka's checks in frequently, I think he's pretty knowledgable.
And you can't go wrong with any thing from SubSailor, b.miller123, atvrcr500, The Stig, gts455, cbrbear, to name a few that I'm familiar with.
