I like all my stuff to stay as stock as possible, too; never got into super-modifying stuff, maybe just a couple select mods here & there ... but in the case of the RC51 I think if you put the bike back to stock you will soon start working toward (re-)modifying it. Best to ride it before deciding.... Makes me wonder about my plan back to stock plan for the bike.
The Twin Cities motorcycling community isn't very large when it comes to sportbike performance stuff. I'm sure we know allot more of the same people than we even figured out during your visit.Super nice meeting you as well Ray, funny how we know alot of the same people.
Stock is probably going to be it except for the exhaust that it is already on the bike. The Ohlins FGRT forks which are for sale on the forum are certainly tempting, but then I review the list of stuff on your bike and I think, hmmm, also need wheels, rear shock and brakes at a minimum... Got other bikes to ride and still got more bikes to collect and this could easily be a sub 1K mile per year bike, so ....Extrap is correct and as we discussed if you want to get it 100% stock you have a good start but the mod bug is lurking following your every E-bay search and will soon consume you
Hey, backwards baseball cap, wife beater, board shorts and flip flops are gear for many, and who am I to judge?Welcome to the hive
On a side note thank-you for keeping your promise and not telling anyone I rode over to your place without gear
