Hello from England

Hi from the UK thought it was about time for me to introduce myself.
I've bought myself a 2004 SP2 (rc51) which a family member had but unfortunately had a crash on so I bought it very cheap.
The damage is left radiator, left and right side fairings, both mirrors, both lights are in tiny pieces, indicators up front are broken, clocks took a bashing so have marks on them, both exhausts are damaged, front wheel has a ding in it, clutch lever is marked, left footrest is broken, front nose cone is smashed to bits, complete air intake is missing, + quite a bit more. But the frame is undamaged miraculously.
It's now the third bike in my stable the others being a cbr600f and an nc29
The SP2 is my winter project but will be back on the road next spring.
I will be asking you all lots of questions and will post up pics when I get to the post count of 10

Welcome to the forum Pirks.
Keep watching the classifieds here, and on Speedzilla, you can probably score most of the parts you need. May take a little bit and a lot of patience, but the sellers on this forum are a pretty damn good lot.

No only that, but there are several of your countrymen on this forum as well, that can lend advise or possibly assistance on sourcing parts locally.

Welcome. I have a set of used headlights I was going to put on Ebay (for RHD - same as UK) and I also have a repaired & ready for paint front cowl, L & R side cowls, rearset assembly and clutch lever (PM if interested). I'm sure there will be people on here with used indicators as so many fit after market ones...

Some parts such as the clock housing are cheap to buy new from Honda. I'd use Silvers Honda spares to get original new parts, when in the UK.
I wouldn't buy a snorkel used, may as well replace with a carbon DHC one - available from Duckhunter on here.

Euro RC51 SP2: HRC WSB Ti Hi-Level, T1 Airbox & Snorkel, PCIII, Dymag CA5 Carbon Wheels, Ti64 Spindles (F, R & Swing Arm), Mori Link, Maxton GP7 Shock & Ohlins 832 Forks, Brembo GP Calipers & SBK narrow track (F), Braketech Disc (R), Brembo billet Underslung x 2 Brembo RCS, Tyga Triple, 7075 Stem, Probolt Titanium all over, Babyface rearsets, MR Complete Carbon Lineup, Custom Undertail & CBR 1000 LED, Watsen LED Indicators, Harris Brace, Giles clip-ons, Corbin seat, etc. 2013 BOTY.

Whereabouts in good old Blighty are you pirks? Might have some of the parts you need knocking around.

Welcome aboard.

Hiya britRC I'm up in Lancashire, I have received quite a few new parts from America but still need both headlights as they got smashed to tiny pieces. I'm going to get new fairing panels even though it's going to cost the earth as I will be keeping the bike for a heck of a long time

Welcome.....I must ask, why do you need to send off to the States for parts? Are they any cheaper here??
