Hi guys. New to the RC51 world, but not to big twins. I just got off an 1198 (due to reasons outside of my control).
Looked for a while, and came a cross a pretty clean 03. Bike has some good TD goodies on it, and the previous owner is a legit good dude. I felt comfortable with him through the process.

Bike needs a bit of work, a few things need to be fixed that I wasnt expecting. IE, fork seals and an intermittent no fuel pump issue. PO thinks its the relay, I suspect the battery. Bike has a litium battery, DHC battery relocator, DHC airbox, DHC undertail, braided lines, clip-ons, rearsets, Leo Vince shorten low mount slip-ons, Brembo 19x18 master, and some other goodies. Racetech rebuild on the forks

Immediate plans are for fork seals, a new gas tank (Purchased an SP1. I know the scallop decals may be in slightly the wrong place), powdercoating the wheels black, and de-stickering it. Im going to put the fuel pump relay in as well.

Bike is going to be my street bike, with the occasional TD on it. I have an older ZX7r that is my racebike.

cant post any yet (dont have 10 posts here)

Welcome from across the pond!

Old enough to know better, young enough not to care.
