Track bike GPR mount question

Just bought a RC-51 track bike, and looking to get it ready for the season. The bike started life as an 2000 SP-1 but after an accident on track, all the 'bits' were transferred to a 2002 frame.

Now to the question: I have GPRv4 for my Triumph Daytona 675, but I want to get a mount for my new-to-me RC-51. GPR shows one mount for the 2000-2001 bike and another for the 2002+ RC's. Not sure why they would be different. I have read that there were 'tweeks' between the generations, but don't recall seeing a change to the Triples, but perhaps I missed that. Can anyone let me know what changed?

So, which generate mount should I get?

Thanks for your opinions as I try to learn more about the RC-51

You will have to buy the mount and a faring stay.
Not sure the difference, but I think I would lean more to the 00-01 mount.
Your triples are still the 00, right?

Yes, the triples are still the originals...makes sense the I would need the SP-1 mount then.

Not sure why I would have to purchase another fairing stay (could be my lack of knowledge about RC-51's)

The bar that goes across your faring stay is too low for the stock mount.
I took pictures, let me see if I can find them...

Thanks, I would really appreciate that.

BTW did the fairing stay change between the Gen 1 and Gen 2?

Yes. SP2 is quite a bit thicker.

By the way, here is before and after.
You can see the bar would be right in the way of the stabilizer.

By the way, my factory faring stay went to a buddy with an SP2 and it fit no problem.
I wonder now what the difference is.

The SP2 fairing stay is clear anodized aluminum, the SP1 is steel painted black.

If you put the SP1 triples into the SP2 frame, you must have swapped out the bearings or something, because the SP2 upper bearing is the same as the lower, but the SP1 upper bearing is smaller.




I'm always right.

Hopefully the picture show on this post. Based on what you mentioned, it looks like I have an SP2 fairing stay; any way of identifying if these are SP1 or SP2 triples?

I have so much to learn!?!?!

Thanks for your assistance thus far; you boys are very helpful

Looks like SP1 triples from what I can see (I don't have my glasses on right now), but definitely SP2 faring stay.
