New to the RC51 world

Just bought a low usage 04 51, still working on geeting her going but will post with feeback and picture soon. My current ride is a 2001 Yamaha R1, 1990FZR 1000 and a 2003 GSXR1000. Love this forum and looking forward to learn more about the bike.

Probably sat for a while with partially filled fuel tank.
That's why you should always keep your tank filled during the winter to hold down condensation.
