Hand picked over new literbikes

Hello all, Jake here. I have bought and sold 27 bikes in the last 1.5 years keeping 10 as my favorites.I just bought a 2003 Honda RC51 and love it . Now I am in the midst of upgrading the chassis,suspension, ect. For the rear shock im going with the bitubo xxy36 and for the front im trying to find a set of ohlins fg322 forks. next ill try a set of Mupo or matris cartriges. engine wise i have a set of wiseco 12.7:1 pistons on the way does anyone know where i can find high lift camshafts?```````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` `````````````````````````````````````````````````` ````````````````````````````````````````````

You really can't. Stage 2 Cams are unobtainium unless you have them custom made. HRC and Moriwaki are non-existant anymore. and you'll need a stage 2 valvetrain.....which are also unobtainium. You can have kibblewhite make you titanium retainers for your valvetrain kit.....but that alone will cost you about 250-300 for 8 pieces. Welcome to the Forum......and the unending search for unobtainium parts.

gts455 thank you for the warm welcome.My Favorite all round machine is the Triumph Sprint ST 1050.For some reason getting parts for a sprint is next to impossible so im used to searching for unobtainium . Actually thanks fpr the info, now I know to just have a cam made for the RC51 instead of wasting time looking for one off the shelf.*

I ALSO BOUGHT THE BERINGER BRAKES. IVE HEARD GOOD THINGS ABOUT THEM BUT NEVER TRIED THEM MYSELF .THE BEST BRAKES ON THE MARKET ARE NOW ISR . I BOUGHT THE BEST BREMBO SET UP (AND WAITED 4 MONTHS FOR PADS?? ONLY TO GO VESRAH=NO BREMBO PADS AVAILABLE AFTER 6 MONTHS?) FINALLY THE ISR UNITS CAME IN AND HAD BETTER FEEL,MORE POWER AT 1/3 THE COST.

I bought the regular beringer set up..... But.... You can get the ...quad...rotor set up for the rc51. 2 smaller diameter rotors on each side (=less centrifical force) 3 pads each side . I didnt buy them fearing not being able to buy inside pad in the future .
