So I know I am new here and prob appear as even more of a newbie for taking my SP2 to the local dealer to replace a leaking fork seal, but the service manager made a comment that took me off guard. As he was reading the mileage which is just over 22k miles, he said "you don't see that too often". I was like wtf are you talking about? Then he explained that he didn't often see these v-twins last as long as this one. Is 22k miles really that much on an rc51? I think this guy was kinda crazy, that doesn't seem like that high of mileage to me, I mean I bought it with 19k miles and the only problem I have had is the fork seal.
I just thought it was weird that a service manager at a Honda dealer would say this... lol
Regardless, I freaking love my SP2 and cannot wait to get her back!
Guy here in town that I ride with sometimes has an'02 with 82,7xx on the clock. Original owner. I know this 'cause I looked at it after we road this A.M. He uses Mobil 1,Honda filter, has had his valves done every 20k, and never washes the poor bastard.
Thanks for the replies, that is what I thought. I think the guy was just one of those "negative" people that see something nice and have to say something to try and bring someone down. Oh well, he can keep on being a "negative Nancy" meanwhile I will be carving the North Georgia mountains with my '02 SP2 and loving life.
