Download the service manual from rc51.info and read it first. Then buy some proper tools. Finally take your time, writing down everything for starters. After all, we are not going anywhere

Service Manual is very comprehensive. A good work area and stands or a lift are required. Most minor maintenance is not that difficult, especially with the manual.

2001 RC51 Penske, Race Tech, PCIII USB, Jardine 2-1, Woodcraft, Gilles, Galfer lines, Race upper. Track Only.

2006 CBR1000 Jardine S/O, Pazzo levers. Street ride with the occasional track day for fun.

Polarbear....20 miles to edingburgh is surely nothing in terms of travelling to a service agent. You should try living in Fort William! my nearest service agent is inverness 70 miles away!

Nah, they have regular modes just like us now hehe. But the roads are often way more fun than ours...curvier, more little hills and narrower form my limited experience. Polarbear, you do have to remove some of the fairing parts to do basic mainentance, and it's a good idea anyway so you can then visually inspect your bike better. PM sent your way mate.

Duct tape can't fix stupid...but it sure helps muffle the sound
