The SP1 story

Ive had an 00 SP1 in Australia for about 4 years now but due to working overseas Ive only put 7,000kms on it in that time. I bought it as a race bike that only rode 1 season in 2000 and was leased for a 1000k race in Macau 2001. Since then it was in a shed with a tarp and hay bails piled on it for 5 years untill I bought it from a friends sister. (another story)

It came with the road fairing which had never been used and many race goodies. Its an awesome bike and everytime I ride it I get off with an ear to ear grin.

I had it dynoed over a year ago and it had 133hp which isnt too bad from stock. I'm unsure of the engine mods it has but there must be a few since one of the major sponsors for it was Vee Two race engines..

Working in China means I wont be back on it until February next year but I dream of the time I have to learn to ride all over again.

Welcome to the group.
When you get a chance, post some photos of it.
I'm sure others would like a view.

Nice!!
It's already got an Ohlins shock, steering damper, and Arrow exhaust.
Hurry back in February and play with that bad girl.

Is that an RX-3 in the garage?

Damn sure looks like an RX-3 less the motor...
