Well last weekend I just purchased a 2002 RC, a great deal I couldn't pass up, one day deal, had to drive 260 miles one way to pick it up with cash to get it that day, and I had been looking for a good deal, and this one great, so it in the truck and off I went. Its only got a little over 14200 miles and in very good shape with added items like steering damper, Penske rear shock with remote reservoir, ( ?? model) , 520 chain conversion with a 42 rear, ( don't know what the front is yet), after market exhaust, Power Commander V ,and other stuff, some I plan on removing like the Nice Billet foot peg/rear brake assemblies on both sides, and looks like the VFR800 shifter, but I'm sorry, I also have a VFR800 and I am going to be riding both bikes, and there is NO way I will get used to the GP pattern. So, I got stock shift / peg assembly on the way, and of course the other side too so it will match. BUT...the guy was in a hurry and so it was look , ride, load, and on the road back again. SO .. we did not go over nothing hardly at all about the bike, so there may be a few things I am going to need to know from you guys. I do knw how to work on bikes as I torn my 2000 VFR apart and basically restored it, and have had bikes in the past. Right now I need to know something that I feel is..well....alright I will ask it...How do I get the seat off??? I cant seem to figure that out. I don't want to break or even "Tweek" anything. Oh and I hope it don't have anything to do wit the helmet lock thing on the back side, like my VFR, because its not there, I don't know if he had to remove it for the exhaust or what, but its not there, gone. And I'm sure I may some other questions that may be pretty simple in the future, and advice. But he battery is weak so first things first.
