MBD finally got me
I'm a long time VFR owner (85, 02,10). In late June I finally bought an RC51 and for the first time there are two bikes in my garage! It turns out that they make a perfect pair, although the VFR feels like a Gold Wing after getting off the RC.
2003 SP2, only 15,336 miles when purchased, completely stock except for new brake and clutch levers (CRG), a result of a kickstand tip-over I was told. I'm the third owner, apparently it was bought new at the WSBK round at Laguna Seca.
I want to thank Extrapolator, whose thread I found immediately, for all his useful info on sourcing parts and mods. And I've been in touch with Kyle Racing and just received their 15/41 sprocket/chain set. Tires are kind of mis-matched, Diablo Corsa front and Angel GT rear, but I'm too cheap to switch them out until they get closer to the wear bars. Suggestions?
And where should I go from here? If you would point me to the appropriate threads it would be appreciated.
BTW, what a motor!
