New owner small project ...what can you see

Hi all.
So brief history from a London guy. I've been riding a long long time and have had a fair few bikes of all types. Getting less time these days and thought I cant do with out a bike so what could I get that I probably wouldnt lose too much money with and that is modern enough for me to enjoy riding and starting up after being left (reliable).

A few searches came up with SP2's RC51's. So I google searched pictures of some and low and behold I found a picture of one on a forum I use for cars. It was THE STIGS on here who I have known through the forum for some years.

I looked at that and googled (again) ones for sale in the UK and found one that seemed to have some quaility bits including durbahn air box.

I have ordered some magical racing parts with the help of Miguel and a new screen with a view to powder coat my alloys. Hoefully this wont increase their weight too much?

Lets see what bits you can see.......just in case I havent spotted something!

Nice bike you've found there Spwho....
If you know Miguel then you've already have a free pass to the SP2 world

Lots of bit on this....Brembo rotors on Marcesini wheels and an Ohlins FG322 front to match. Ohlins HO204 for rear suspension, Sato exhausts with Sato hangers and Sato rearsets (?).
If I'm not mistaken it has CBR1000RR blinkers like mine at the front. Yamaha blinkers on the rear I think.

All she need now is LOVE

I see a billet Brembo master and Brembo rotors as well. I too was curious about the exhaust stays aluminum? Sato? Custom? Either way nice bits and welcome.

*After missing one of the pics I got a better look and saw they were Sato titanium stays...nice.

Hi guys

Thanks for the comments and MakisRC51 is pretty much on the money.

They are Sato rearsets and the hangers are Titanium sato I believe.
The bike has alot of ti bolts......maybe not enough yet though

I pulled another standard SP2 off its side stand and then this one and the difference was so significant. The small bits really do add up!

You might be right about the blinkers but I am changing those to more discrete items too as I just cant enjoy looking at the rear.

It has the sato full ti system, power commander with custom map, sealed rear tail box and round LED rear lights. (not sure where from)

Oh and forgot it has the HRC quick throttle...........not much else I can remember but I will be doing little bits to it............ slowly......I have a bad habit of doing things all at once way too quick sometimes.

Hope I can get some input on recommendations for styling and modifications from you all.

How about Power commander III USB? If it hasn't one, you definitely need to get one and have it properly tuned for those exhausts.
Speedohealer? Any changes on the final drive ratio? Still 16T front - 40T rear?
