Joining the Fold

Hi all, I first logged onto this site over a year ago just to get some information and get an idea of what I was letting myself into but I've now taken the plunge.

Just put a deposit on a 2005 SP2 S-5 black/silver/red and now the wait begins. It should be delivered to me on Friday the 9th, not that I'll be able to use it but at least I can sit on it the garage making vroom-vroom noises.

It comes with just over 12k miles, Yoshi s/s exhaust. Harris hanger, braided lines and Galfer front discs, plus a few other bits and bobs.

I am chuffed, I've always liked the looks and sound of them, I have ridden cheap SP1s and fully sorted SP2 so I have an idea of what I am aiming for. Mine will probably receive a new rear shock or at least a rework on shock and forks and a PC of some description.

In the meantime could someone kindly point me towards a link from which I could download parts book and service manuals? (preferably UK, if specific)

Cheers all, can't wait. This is the best [after] Christmas ever!

Don't know... can't post images nor links at the moment as I'm too wet behind the ears. Think black side panels with big red wing on them, silver belly pan and silver/black rear cowl. Black frame & swingarm.

edit: hah...managed to attached a pic from the dealer's advert.
