HELLLO! I just picked up my first Honda product, a 2001 SP1.... I have always drooled over the RC51... and now I have one! WELL... SORT OF.
The pervious owner may or may not have crashed it into a Mustang.... BUT THATS OKAY, because I shall restore her to her previous OEM glory! And I need YOUR help to do so! I purchased the bike as a non-op... the previous owner was 18 and he didnt know the first thing about motorcycles. the mustangs's owner's insurance paid off this kid $5300 for his bike and let him keep the clean title. so i came along and picked it up for $1500 . I got the bike home, took the fairings off, found the wiring harness pictured (two wires were rashed and separated) patched it back together and it started right up!! so now comes the chore of sourcing all the parts i need.
It also looks like your left side fork is bent... can't tell on the right. The left clipon also looks to be bent.
nnah, the forks arent bent on either side. its just the angle of pics. the clipons are fine too, the impact did however snaps off the tabs on the top triple that hold the clipons in place. both clipons were basically pushed towards the tank as far as they could go... it had a hell of a time getting the damn thing into my shop! i took my turning technique from austin powers
