So my RC that i bought has around 74000km (45981,46 miles) on the clock which means something very important needs to be checked like on my Fireblade you have ot check the valve clearances around the 50000km (35000 mile) mark. Similar for the RC51's? What else can you guys tell me i should be wary of on these models?
Honda says valve clearance checks every 16,000. So at 48,000 you're due if the maintenance schedule has been kept.
The rest of the maintenance stuff should be the same as your Fireblade.
fwiw, you may want to inspect your steering bearings. I'm at 51,000 miles and mine are due. I can feel slight notching/indent at center and either side of center.
I have not a clue as to whether anyone kept the maintenance schedules as it looks like she had a tough life. I will be giving her some lovin. So yah i think next up will be valve clearance check etc...
From when i rode her i did not feel any knocks or movement form the steering bearing so i think im solid there, but i still need to ride her more to find out.
