I've already removed a duplicate thread that was started a couple minutes after this, plus moved this in it's correct category. I'm sure other members will chime in when they have a chance....get them time.

Ultimately the RC51 is an overweight underpowered turd. You either like it for what it is or you don't. If you don't then you are way better off buying a faster lighter bike than trying to polish the turd.

Yep, for me the RC51 is perfect as it is. What the ts wants to do with his RC1 is his business

You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear.
