FS: 2002 RC51 with nice mods.

Regrettably, I am selling my 2002 Honda RC51, also known as RVT1000R or SP-2. It currently has 32,235 miles on it. Even though it has higher mileage it's also been maintained. Oil changed every 2500 miles with Shell Rotella T6 full sythetic with either Honda, Mobil 1 or K&N oil filter. Valves were adjusted in 2013 at around 23k miles. Gets complements all the time.

The modifications include:

*Ohlins 20mm valving in forks by Dan at Kyle Racing (2013)
*Penske shock by Peter Kates at GMD Boston (2013)
*Carbone Loraine XBK5 front and rear brake pads (2013)
*Spiegler front brake line (2013)
*DID ZVM2 520 chain (2013)
*Drive Systems 41T rear sprocket (2013)
*15T front sprocket. Forgot the brand but it's steel. (2013)
*Puig light smoked double bubble wind screen (2014)
*StompGrip knee traction pads (2014)
*K&N air filter
*Power Commander 3 USB
*Leo Vince SBK slipons
*Michelin Pilot power 3 front (2013) and rear (2014) which has less than 100 miles.
*Yuasa battery (2014)
*Engine Ice and fresh DOT 4 brake fluid (2014)

I also have a Joe Rocket jacket and AGV Valentino Rossi helmet I can work into the deal if the price is right.

Only "bad" thing is minor cosmetic on the upper fairing from when it tipped over while loading onto the trailer. Never been wrecked!

No trades. Cash or bank check only. $5200 obo.

06/21/15: $4600 OBO!

Not at all. Admittedly, I don't run it much in the high revs either. Hard to find places that I can do that around here

thanks Loud. Ya I know I'm going to regret and miss it but with the amount of mileage I do I would like something more comfy. I'd like to touring NE this year and eventually across the U.S. and I can't do it on the RC.

Your bike is beautiful by the way!

Didn't realize that was a lot! Maybe I should stop riding mine.
