So this is a follow up to my previous thread: https://www.rc51forums.com/forums/6-...-600-rc51.html
About 2 weeks ago I proclaimed that I wanted an RC51 and would start keeping my eyes out for one. Well last friday I was at work looking at craigslist and saw a 2006 RC51 with 8,000 miles all black for $5,000.
I went to go check it out and negotiated the price to $4,900 and bought it!
So now the RC51 is mine, I took it for a ride the other day and I love it! It has so much torque and it sounds so dang amazing!
Unfortunately the bike was "modded" and I wouldn't exactly say it's tasteful
-Gold Bar ends
-gold chinese levers
-hotbodies chrome windshield
-"carbon fiber" mirrors
-crappy front turn signals
-Sato Racing exhaust (actually really nice)
-Power Commander 5
So I already ordered an MRA light smoke windshield, pitbull delrin spools, and some bar ends. I'm going to get some ASV levers as well.
I need help figuring out where I can buy some stock footpegs and mirrors for a decent price.
The chrome wheels are not my style but they don't look terrible so i'll keep them for now, eventually i'll get some black or gold wheels maybe.
The hotbodies undertail looks cool, but the brake lights are not that bright and the integrated turn signals are not that great either... I need some advice on if I can update them to look brighter somehow. Or maybe i'll do a 954 conversion... also I need to relocate my plate, currently there is no plate light and I need one to get a sticker... also the plate covers the keyhole for the trunk. And finally I need a replacement for the front turn signals, was wondering what the premium options are.
Only mods I really want to do is get a gear indicator and an OEM honda tank pad. Other than that it's pretty much perfect. I may in the future get some titanium headers.
Here some more pictures!
