Just bought an Rc51 and realized its missing a few little things.

First thing is the little black piece behind the front wheel that connects to both side fairings and protects the header, oil filter and engine.
Circled here. Also if anyone knows where I can get one that'd be great!



Also needing a front fender in red or carbon fiber.

Here you can find the most amazing carbon bodywork

The V-Cowl you are missing depends on the model you own

If you've got an SP1 you can get this one from Ben, really cheap

If you own an SP2 then you should keep an eye on fleebay for a listing, otherwise you can purchase a new one here (the cheapest OEM dealer)

SP1 or SP2?
I call it a front lower, or front inner fairing. I believe Honda calls it a lower cowl.
HondaEastToledo.com will have the best price. You'll need the clips that are shown in the diagram too. They're pricey, but you really need them. You can substitute automotive fastener clips from the Ace Hardware store, but takes a little searching. Somewhere in this forum is a thread about other clips you can use too...

Thanks guys! I knew I forgot something it's an 03 so
Sp2.
When I installed the SP2 rads on my SP1 and needed to replace my V-Cowl there was nowhere a used one to be found. Neither on eBay nor on www.rc51parts.com (Ben's paradise for RCs).
So I purchased a new one from a New York dealer.

Three months later a couple of SP2 V-Cowls showed up on eBay but they were sold within a week.
So unless you wanna pay it as a new one, you better save a search on ebay and keep looking....after all it isn't THAT important on the bike.

On eBay they usually call it V-Cowl :)

Yeap!

Looks like I'm a little late on the draw.
You guys all posted while I was composing...
It's called "mid-pipe crisis"....it'll pass :D

Plus the mesh grill. That Honda Toledo website won't seem to load on my mobile. I may just fab something up for the mesh grill.

I don't know what the problem is with that cowl, but mine was missing as well when I bought the bike.
Same here, and was thinking the same thing when i was paying for a new one.... was also missing the upper inner cowl as well. Jaydles, can't tell if yours is missing from the pic or not, but definitely makes it all come together....

Hmm id say I'm missing the upper to then. They connect? My f4i was just one piece that went all the way up. So I assumed they were the same.

Yea, if its there it would be noticable, if not by anything the small scoops it creates under the chin...the upper sections of the inner lower cowel pin to the upper.....its in the "upper cowel" section of any fiche. It only dawned on me mine were mia when I realized the front wiring harness had no logical place to live
