Hey all,
been reading posts for a month or more now but finally needed to join for some advice (will post in appropriate section)
Picked up a 2000 rc51 sp1 in June for a steal and was on the fence on keeping it... finally decided I want to make a go of it.
Has a power commander 3 usb, I THINK it has an aftermarket front fairing... with only one headlight assembly in it, and a smooth left side (no headlight assembly), which is where my problem lies... an integrated taillight, and I will be throwing on a set of metzler m7rr's next spring that I got for a good price. It has some other small things... bar ends, hid kit, one piece solo tail section, spools on front and rear, 15/42 gears... basically all I can think of while I type this... but has sooo much potential in my mind.
Anyways, glad to be here and hope you guys can help me on my next post ?

(It seems to be putting my pictures in upside down... posting this with my phone... even though they show right side up prior to loading them.. advice on this?)

Thanks for the welcome man. I am out in Manitoba, Canada. Maybe someone is close, but I would think unlikely... lol. The have almost outlawed subperbikes here with insurance prices.
I posted in "motorcycle modifications" with my issue, but no replies yet... maybe I need to put it in a different location..?

Blane8552 there's actually quite a few Canadian RC51 owners here that I know of.. Wibbly has very nice SP2 build thread on here.. Duckhunter has a nice SP1 build thread here.. & Matthew from duckhunter composites (DHC) in Canada makes all sorts of custom carbon fiber bits by hand exclusively for our beloved RC51..

& I think modifications section is a good place to post your question.. try different key words in your searches too

Oh Joe, I certainly do not doubt that there are lots of Canadians on here.. I just doubt that they live in Manitoba, or anywhere close haha.

I ended up moving my post to the "tech talk" part of the forum, as it is a little more technical/help me related vs me modding the bike haha.

I'll look for your tech problem in the forum. Feel free to PM me if you want.

And welcome!! Lots of great info in here!

Cool man! I thought it would be a rarity, but at least there is one other in the province lol. I am out in brandon, so not a crazy distance away. Wishing I joined back before the colder weather started.. well, live and learn haha.
I posted my lighting problem in the tech talk page.

I got it off a guy who was selling an fz6r as well. So I messaged him about the fz6r, however, he had already sold it. He offered this bike up and I snatched it up. Originally I think it came out of Brandon by an older fella who used to race or in gimli (story I heard from some random dude at the bike shop... no idea how true that is) but I got it off a guy in neepawa. Never got the market. I had it on a couple of sites for sale... but I took it off and decided to keep it, as it owes me nothing.
