General Information

Force Silver Metallic / Winning Red
I bought this crashed in 2013 and it has taken me damn near 5 long years to get it street worthy. All I need now is the turn signals. I honestly can't even list what is all on this now. I will at a later date.

Has all Typical Mods, 520 conversion, pair sys/flapper mod, etc.

Restorations / Replaced

Replaced Throttle cables (push/pull), Switch Assembly, Choke cable
Replaced Throttle Tube
Replaced the front ignition coil – It wasn’t sparking (only one cylinder was running) so we bought another one to replace it thinking it was bad. Turns out it was the connector end piece only—it just wasn’t making a good connection. Well now we have a spare, but I want to do the coil on plug mod anyway. http://www.rc51forums.com/forums/60-how-articles/6482-how-600rr-coil-plug-conversion.html
Replaced broken Satos with OEM cans (for now)
Replaced Clutch master cylinder and reservoir assembly (I bought it off a ’98 VTR1000F, same thing, no RC51 hype)
Replaced front brake reservoir cup
Replaced subframe (long story in itself)
Replaced fairing stay with original aluminum SP2 stay
Replaced battery with a Shorai LFX19A4-SB12 battery
