Hi all,
hope you area are well.

I finally popped my Honda cherry..and finally bought a low k SP1.....2000.

I own 5 Suzuki, which includes a TLR 1000...but I must confess..Honda do know.how to build a bike.

I have always liked the sp1...but xould never afford them.as.a.lad.

The build quality is exceptional.....and I don't think I am in love and will never sell her.

Can't wait to get to know her better.....we're still courting at this stage ..hahah..

Look.forward to.talking more b.s. on the forum.
Cheers

Loachy

Sydney Oz

Looking forward to

Welcome Loachy!

Don't be too apprehensive with her. Deep down, she's looking to be rode hard! But do be a gentleman, and tuck her in at night!

Yeah, it's the weather I'm sure. Heck, I live in Nor Cal, and there hasn't been much decent weather lately. One can only imagine what people go through, living in the snow belt areas. Dutchy had his steed out last weekend or so!

Welcome to the forum.

Its been dead for a few years. About 10 years ago, the forum was one of the most active forums around and had a a lot of solid info. Admittedly so, i only pop back in every few months. The whole forum thing i think is dying out, being taken over by the facebook stuff etc......which is terrible.

Hello and welcome to the forum, yes it can be a little quiet on this forum but it is a knowledgeable forum all the same.
Busier forums are out there for the more common bikes though:laugh:

I totally agree. I've about had it with the whole Facebook thing.....AGAIN! If it wasn't for using the Marketplace, I'd pull the plug on G
Facebook for the second time. They keep your info forever, however.

Hey Cape codder,

What rims do you have on your RC51 ?

They look like Fireblade rims ?

Do they go straight on ?

I am keen to put some lighter wheels on my machine...

Codder is running Carrozzeria wheels that are RC51 specific. Sbkdrew makes wheel spacer and rotor kits to fit the CBR wheels to the 51, if you decide to go with CBR wheels.

as plympton said carrozzeria's before they where taken over by CORE in fla . I purchased them thru Superbike in NC and when I got them I had nothing but issues with the spacers . Superbike tried to get info but Matsu in CA would not even help out . Stopped taking calls from them so they gave me his number and wished me luck , he did pick up for me but was soo tough to deal with . Him telling me they shoud fit and if the didn't spread the swingarm with a bottle jack . I was so pissed i actually listed them for sale but then taking measurements with a caliper i decided to call him back and beg him for 2 more spacers which he agreed with . I then took measurements and had my machinist turn them down. It was so tricky to get them correct so that the chain ran straight and the brake caliper was where it needed to be . I was so careful by not taking it down too much the 1st time so that i could get a perfect measurement .Thank God CORE took them over from Matsu here in the US ( never mind he was a tough guy to deal with but his accent was so thick over the phone we had trouble understanding each other ) . I was not the only one that had the same problems back then . I am sure they are way better now . I did purchase new cuch bushings and replaced them from CORE
