New member from Northern IL

Hey guys,
My name is Aaron and I'm from North Central Il.
Just picked up an 03 RC51 yesterday for $4,900 with only 14K on it. First time owning one....
It has Jardine carbon fiber slip on's, 15/42 gearing & a zero gravity windscreen for mods.
I had a crossplane R1 I sold last year and have had a supermoto and 2 R6's before that.
Have always loved these bike so I decided to pull the trigger on one!!!
Right now I have it all tore apart doing some cleaning and getting familiar with everything.
I do have some questions about a couple of things I will be posting in the different sections....

Thanks
