Hi all

Hey everyone, just picked up an 04 RC51 and can't stop talking about it, so I figured I'd join a group of folks who do the same. Haven't looked around much yet but I'm looking forward to exploring the forum and getting to know everyone.

No, I dont want to do much really. Just drop the curb weight to 300 lbs, coax 200 hp to the rear wheel and tear off those dumb stickers and paint it hot pink. Then I'll be done

I won't respect these modifications unless they include an extended swingarm.

I certainly hope you're kidding , I'd rather you wrecked it rather than disfigure it.

Johnny gets it. I just can't get modern literbike performance out of an rc51 without a new paintjob and a longer swingarm. Woody woodpecker stickers? Please. That doesn't show up on any spec sheet I can show off to all the real bikers who walk around the mall food court in full leathers carrying their mohawk festooned helmets. I have to be able to quote 1/4 mile times that will beat cycle world literbike shootout articles that won't even be written until 2025 or no one will take me seriously.


And let's not forget the green LED underglows.
