New Zealand Newbie

Got my 2003 RC51 SP2 just under a year ago. Had to buy in from the states and ship to New Zealand. Been doing small modifications to it so far. Looking to start carbon fibering it and make an exhaust for looks and sound more then performance as I already have an exhaust for that. Look forward to posting and viewing some awesome projects .

Very time consuming. Getting the right one for the right price mostly by pictures. Plus the old oops we dropped it while loading it in the container.

Welcome ... Also looking forward to pics. And you're the first person I know of to use 'carbon fiber' as a verb

Got it from California. Came with ohlins rear shock, and mag wheels but other then that it was stock.
I've done 520 conversion. 1 down on front. 2 up on back. Kyle smog plates. Kyle flapper valve cover. Speedo healer. PCV. Yoshimura slipons.
So just the basics. So far....
