Just joined the forums, and I just picked up my third bike, first RC51.
New fork seals
New brake pads
New handle levers
Coolant changed last year
Picked it up for $2,500 with a helmet, gloves, service records, service manual, cover, and front and rear stands.
It also has a two brother's exhaust on it that is a little beat up, I'll be looking to replace that with something that's also loud but sounds good, and will be able to mount with passenger foot-pegs.
Think I got a decent deal?
Couple of questions:
The bike has "Racing plastics"
-no rear seat
-driver's seat is hard as S***!
-different cheapo headlights
I ordered a new set from that Hong Kong Ebay deal, hopefully it works out, ordered the stock red to match the tank.
Would anyone be interested in the plastics? I won't have a use for them once I change them out, are they worth anything?
Anything I should look to change? Already bought some Valvoline fully synthetic 10W-40, ordered a filter as well.
Brake and clutch fluid?
What are the mods that people do, like the flapper mod?
Is there a nicer air filter system that I should look to buy? Eventually it will be getting a PCIII.
The bike doesn't have turn signals either, and the blinker doesn't blink, so am I missing the relay as well?
Finally a picture:
