    New member - 2004 RSV-R (gen 1)

    Hi all,

    Browsing through the site I thought I'd register and say hi! Just bought one of the last Gen 1's, a 2004 RSV-R. Loving it at present. Pretty much standard apart from stubby levers and a Leo Vince race can. I know it's running rich so I'm currently looking into an EPROM chip. I'll put pics up in a minute

    Thanks guys. I probably paid a bit over the odds for it but as it was in such good condition i didn't really mind. My best mate bought a Tuono Fighter just before i got this and after riding that i really wanted another big twin

    So far... pillion peg on left removed, tail tidy, small number plate, mini rear indicators.

    Just PM'd Dr Rossi as i hear he does chips for these so i'll see what difference that makes... surely it can only make things better, particularly with the race can on there? The can does have a removable baffle but once i'd heard it without baffle there was no way i was putting it back in
