'nother noob -- track RC51
Joining the insanity; just acquired a 2002 SP2 right before the last track day of the season. Was on my street RC8 before, so the big twin is my friend. (I see RC8 forum names here)
I'd promised myself no new bike, but the price was too right; less than plastics for the Kaboom. It can with some bits (Jardine pipes, PC3, tech-g rearsets, Penske shock, ohlins valves in the forks) and race bodywork. Owner was being moved to Montana and needed to shift it.
Bought it Friday, track day Saturday, first ever race Sunday.
I'd post pics, but not on a first post!
Did find I needed to replace the FPR; was idling down and dying when the tank was low. Replacing that jumped the idle 800rpm (!) but haven't had a chance to test ride since.
