    Welcome Daz. The paint job looks nice bud. This is also my first V, like you always had inlines. Took me quite a while to get used to the twin but now really starting to love it.

    Have you HPI'd it?
    Any thoughts on why the bodywork looks like its from 3 different bikes?
    If you paid the 2695 they were asking for it then its too much, however each to there own and if your happy with it then good luck to you

    Thats fair enough but I can't see why anyone would put a red tank on a yellow bike, also take all the decals off the fairings and replace them with a load of cheap ones form Ebay.
    The R1 looks nice and a proper job, the RSV just looks dodgy / wrong.
    Hope everything goes ok for you

    trust me mate if it not up to scratch when i get there i will not be comming home with it the r1 i did all the work myself total stripdown the welding of the subframe apart from powercoating of the frame and respray so if i see any problems with it i wont be parting with my hard work for cash

    any plans to respray it? custom looks cool but something with the chop n change standard body parts just doesnt seem right to me, needs the decals off or something

    ignoring the strange color scheme it looks really tidy! welcome to the wonderful world of v twins

    Looks nice a nd clean as wolf said. Congratulations mate.

    How does it handle compared to the R1.

    Might be worth working your way through the electric mods..

    you would think for an 11 year old bike that as had one owner from new most of the mods would have been done but no the only mod that as been done is the ecu wire cut and he as put a renagade air box on it. the chip is orig
