I suggest against running frame sliders on the RC51 as they mount so low on the chassis that at speed they usually cause the bike to roll over damaging the tank, stay, screen & the other side of the bike too.
If you still want to do it then here are some instructions or you can use a laser pointer to mark the spot and reinstall the faring to see where to the laser points too
Frame sliders have saved my ass many times, so I have to do it. Plus its already done.
3. would like to find an 02 or newer swingarm.
Don't waste your time or money the new swingarm is not all it is cracked up to be and if you are in the correct weight range for using an aftermarket link then you actually get better results with the SP1 swingarm
Ok.. Gotcha on that. I found a nice Kyle Link that is suppose to be real smooth, I may try it.
4. Would like to switch out the top end and brains for an 02 or newer and drop some 11.1 / 1 pistons
Again waste of money & reliability goes down the toilet once you start cracking open the cases on these bikes
I will take this into consideration for sure.. Thanks
6. Racetech valves, fork springs and shock set up for my weight
Get the Ohlins and be done with it. Revalving a stock shock would be like eating a steak with a condom on your tongue. It will still get you fed, but you get no real enjoyment out of it.
I see your point but am on a budget and Cannot dump that much cash into my suspension at this time. But I can afew nice suspension internals that will assist my stock suspension n handling my weight. Plus I have access to a very talented suspension guy.. He actually just set up my RC lastnight using just the stock stuff and as usual has left a supernice result.
8. -1/+2 520 Conversion.. Driven
Use DID chain & AFAM forget about the Driven sprockets...
I agree with this too.. But the only DID & AFAM 520 kits I have found are twice the cost of the driven, or vortex, or any other for that matter.
[o]10. Possibly exchange my wheels for the lighter 02 wheels.[/B]
Go big or go home... Get some Forged Mags or some BST carbons or just leave them alone as the difference from one OEM wheel to another is not enough to even feel the difference.
