Hi jondog9,thanks for the welcome.
I've mostly ridden it (Have 7000 s-miles on it now)As far as mods go,
cosmetics: Rizzoma & Proton blinkers,Dbl bubble (dark smoke)windscreen,
Hot-bodies undertail with modified brake lights(others not bright enough)
Blk magnetic tank bra,Tyga CF hugger,(soon CF front fender).
Performance wise: not much, Supersprox stealth 42 tooth rear,PCIII
usb (not installed yet looking for exhaust sys) Pair & flapper mod.Will have the local Race Tech rep service & set up suspension shortly! Have Hel SS
clutch & brake lines waiting for installation on next service,(maybe upgrade pads?)
Am enjoying the RC after a 5-6 year absence from sport bikes.Progress is slow because so many other commitments,but will get there eventually!
Will post up pics as soon as i figure that out,not very computer sauve.I'm kinda an "old fart".

Safe riding,
Richard

Your best bet for the Sato's is to keep checking ebay. You are lucky in that you own an SP2, although still rare you should be able to find a used set in good condition within a month or 2. If you give up on the Sato's there are still quite a few of options out there for you, you could also get in touch with Simon Percival. I buy many of my parts directly from him. He's a private distributor in Kobe Japan and can find you some awesome stuff. He is an outstanding guy and will go out of his way to help you out. Let me know if you'd like to get a hold of him and i'll PM you his email.
