New bike - 03 600rr

It's been awhile since I had my F4i, so I picked up another 600.

This 03 600rr is a little beat up, so I'll be replacing fairings first. Other than that I plan on just riding this thing like I stole it. Has a nice two brothers exhaust as well.

Anyone on here have one with different wheels? I hate the 3 spokes. I had to change that on my 919 and it looks so much better.

Here is a video picking it up:

Probably a better bike even, than an F4i which was a great bike. It'll feel tiny to ride compared to the RC51.

So when you lose a title slip, what do you do to get a replacement in the US?
I guess there is some way of doing this...

As for replacement wheels, I guess RC51 originals wouldn't fit, right? Too big on the rear probably...

Oh it feels much smaller than the RC. I look forward to commuting on it.

The guy I bought it from will have to put in for a replacement title with the state department. So I'll have to wait until it is officially mine. Probably not wise to ride it until then....

Not sure about the wheels. I'm nervous to get on 600rr.net that forum is too big, haha.

I have the same year and don't mind the rims too much. It felt like a toy when I jumped back on it from the rc51

And 600rr.net isn't too bad. Lots of group buys to get in on along with tons of info
