Yeah, I got a used one from rc51parts. I wanted to just make a project of the blown one. It's leaking oil and the oil's all over the piston. The price from racetech is $250 give or take for a rebuild. I guess I'll just empty it and make some kinda ornament out of it. Maybe I could make some kinda funky coffee table out of it or something.
I have yet to outgrow the stock suspension so I don't feel the need to upgrade to some pricey unit, although it would be nice. I know everyone complains about the stock suspension, but if you ever road the '01 R1 I was riding previous to this bike you'd realize that whatever's on the RC51 right now is light years ahead. Once I get that feeling that my suspension is a weak link in my ability to carve I'll upgrade.
