00 RC-51 in Yellow?

After a 10 year hiatus, I'm getting back into the sport bike thing.

I came across this RC-51 on Craigslist and purchased it. Runs fine; a bit of cosmetic damage to the fairings.

I like the color and the pattern, but I have not seen or referenced one RC-51 in this yellow pattern. The parts manual doesn't specify any other body panels other than the familiar red/silver color pattern. A Google search has not found any examples of yellow SP-1s out there either.

Does anyone here have one? Does anyone know where I can get new fairing without going to the OEM?

This is an odd color. Maybe try EBay?? I have seen some colors similar to this on there....

Is it plastic or fiberglass bodywork? The RC wasn't avail in yellow... maybe possible replacement fairings from China.

I have reviewed the fairings on eBay and I'm leaning towards the green, red, white Castrol fairings and repairing my tank.

The yellow fairings have really grown on me and if I can get these affordably, I'm thinking of keeping the bike as is.

Hi mate,you could always just get the panels repaired and painted yellow again most paint shops can do it Failing that if they are too badly damaged buy the fairings and get those painted yellow !! or u could send it 2 me over here and I'll do it!! he he he

Sundayrider, the black wings on yellow is hot. I agree with you growing on me as well and I have only been checking it out for a few mins as I look at the pic. I myself am restoring a 2000 SP1 and am going to paint it the castrol race colors you have posted. I have planned this for a year now, bike is now in grey primer will spray sometime this winter.
