The RVF400 is more fun than I'd expected, but the main thing it lacks of course - is always going to be power, so you're probabl;y right not to have traded the 900 RR for one.

Just joined FlickR as recommended and so here's a picture taken over the weekend, with the Dymags now on. Just waiting on a few more parts including a titanium double 1.00 banjo for use with the RCS19.

(Don't know how to embed FlickR pictures & the above pasted on doesn't seem to work, so here's a link: https://flic.kr/p/24FFYxa)

Here's an example of titanium bolts on Ali Express. I've had some of these... The heads are a bit large at 13mm size, but that aside they're good - cheap enough too.
I find I buy little things regularly from this site, as it's inexpensive. Just takes a few weeks to arrive...

Also, these aren't too bad for the price (Better than the picture shows). Probolt sells little screw-on aluminium, collars to make screws such as these like Honda originals (Where there's a spacer to stop the fairing plastics being crushed when tightened.

HTH! :grin2:

Took the bike out for a bit today. weather was perfect. Not too far from me is an area that used to be a Grand prix track for motorcycles and F1 from the 1920's into the 60's. Castle Solitude Race track. It is all public roads and you can still ride the track route.








On the way home I stopped at another nearby area which is a big car meeting point. Lots of historical cars here and just about every weekend there is an exotic car meet. I pass it everyday on my way to work and see Ferraris, Mclarens, AMGs, Porsches, etc. literally every other day. The area used to be an airfield during WW1 and WW2. There was the klemm aircraft factory across the street and now it is Mercedes main factory and HQ. The building in the picture is the original airfield terminal. Picture was taken not too far off the Graf zeppelin's tail.

GTS455 nice bike! I had sold my SC33 1999 a few months ago. Was in totally pristine condition.



How do You find the riding position on the CBR? I am quite short (1,70m) and I have to say in comparison to SP2 the CBR was totally uncomfortable. I couldn't find my position on it. But generally a nice bike :)

Hey APC, sorry for the late reply. I have not been on the forum for awhile. Better late than never, right? That is a nice SC33. The position on the CBR wasn't bad, but i changed a few things. It definitely hurt my knees....something about the angle it bent my legs at.....and well getting older. Because of that, I got some adjustable Harris Rearsets and that made the riding position way better. The RC51 definitely sits lower. I never felt that it was uncomfortable either.

Where in Poland are you? I spent quite a bit of time up there. Beautiful country and great people. I have some good friends there still.
