My amazing wife surprised me this weekend. Unbeknownst to me, she purchased a Nicky Hayden Edition RC51 for me. We went to Grapevine to pick it up yesterday. This bike has been on my bucket list of bi

Just added another Honda to the stable, a new leftover 2018 CBR1000RR SP. 😎

Congrats on that wonderful machine!  I've seen a couple around my area or region recently, which is remarkable as they're pretty rare here.

Is that a thin o-ring to check travel on the right fork?

It  does.

In the olden days we'd use a tie-wrap.

Prior to that, a tapping sound meant something was hitting the top of the front fender;

this was an indication of excess travel  :goofy:

Little curious as to why you'd fit the OEM anchors, euh I mean mufflers...

Are those Yoshimuras way too loud?

 

If not done already, I'd whip out the multimeter and do "The Drill" on the altenator (Ohm and Vac), the battery (Vdc) charging/the RR output and have the battery load tested.

Set suspension (sag etc) to your weight, don your leathers and ride her like you stole her!!! :goofy: 

 

 

PS: good move to replace them -ahem- "tasteful" red anodised levers and bolts :beer:

Agreed Dutchy, the red anodized bits had to go. 

 

Yes the Yosh pipes sounded great but for how I will use this bike on street just way too loud, I felt like I could be heard from miles away, I don't mind having to lose trouble when found but don't need them to be sitting ahead waiting for me if you know what I mean. 

 

Tell me more about "the drill"? Is there something the RC is prone to for electrics? The bike is all stock as far as electronics go.

In Dutch we know the abbreviation

 

IWA

 

Ik

Wil

Aandacht

 

 

Which works in English too :goofy:

I

Want

Attention....

 

 

Back in 2012, @gradus kindly lend me his 6th gen for TMAC.  Prior to attending, I rode through Georgia, Alabama en Tennessee (to visit @skuuter).  The pipes were gutted so long and behold, a police cruiser in some hick town was lurking behind a billboard (Blues Brothers anyone? 😎😄😄) and got right on my tail until I crossed the county line....

 

Bought my SP2 with Laser GP pipes w/o any wool left....  Like 102dba+  They were replaced pronto

Picked up another SV for $600.
01 model, nearly stock, under 8k miles, less than 30 miles ridden in the last 7 years, have been sitting in the last 2 years. 
No rust inside the fuel tank. Will need chain/sprockets, fork seals, all fluids, etc..

It will be a nice & easy winter project, make a quick profit next spring.
