Zombie, rise and find brains to pick.....


I'm going to look at a '05 sp2 tomorrow. Any areas to look at?

I know they have a dedicated ergo, and they suck on gas, and they steer heavy.....

But the sound....

Nothing special really. Normal check on wear parts, overall condition and service history is all you need. Mechanically these are bulletproof. If you appreciate mods then look for gearing change, suspension tweaks (rear shock & link) and exhaust are few of the most common ones.

I have an 06 and only things I have done is shorter gearing ( front -1 / rear +2), 190/55 rear tyre and carbon slip-ons. Now during winter I had the suspension fully serviced and only mod there was to raise oil level in the forks slightly above OEM spec. For some reason the oil level was way too low from the factory (no leaks etc that could have altered it) which made it really soft but now it is much better. The suspension technician said that he has seen lots of 05-06 jap bikes with Showa forks that have too little oil in them, don't know if it's random or japanese saved oil costs I also changed steering stem bearings but that wasn't necessary. However I decided to do it "while at it" and the front end was disassembled anyway. Also got new air filters standing by and should check valve clearance and then it's ready for summer.

Really nice bike to work on, quality parts, everything fits spot on. Works flawlessly, rides nice. Never gonna sell mine

Sold my highly modded 2002 RC51 last fall. Replaced it with a KTM 990 Supermoto R. I don't really miss it that much. It was a fantastic bike but I got tired of dealing with the weight at track days. The gear driven cams are very cool though and it seems that the KTM 990 Supermoto engine, even with a Power Commander and good FI map, is not quite as quick as that sweet RC engine. I would imagine that the KTM engine in their sport bike would be a lot faster though.

My 2002 is apart waiting for its revalved forks and new Penske shock. It has been my favorite street bike yet although a bit painfull to ride distance on.

That is a thing of beauty

I've wanted an RC for years, since before my TLR, and now still. I WILL have one someday!

Beautiful build. Ever dyno it? Why are you parting ways with it after all the time and money you have invested?

I had one for about 5 years. A 2000 model. I loved it but could only afford one bike and the 80 mile tank range was a PITA. It was the best sounding bike I have ever heard If I ever have enough money for 2 bikes I'll have another one as the Sunday 'Toy'.
