I was in a Honda shop recently admiring the '04 RC51. This one had Nicky Hayden's signature on it and a nifty set of HRC stickers. Anything else special about this bike or are they just selling fancy stickers?

Someone told me they changed the clutch from the 03, but I thought that bike was closer to $10K and this was $11.6K. Sounds like a lot for a clutch and Nicky's autograph... :bike:

I dont know if any particular changes are there for the signature bike..but i would tend to doubt it..as when Honda had the CBR600F3 Miguel Duhamel bike, it was mainly the paint scheme, and appearance that was the difference.

I have looked into this some what and looking at last years specs to this years...All I can see it that you are paying for some really expensive stickers. Don't sound fair to me. :)

I also read that his shifter is setup backwards. As in pushing down is a upward shift....

I guess it was a preference. It was in a article where him and a indy car driver swapped vechicles. They were both Honda racers and they did it for some reason or another. It was a great article I think in Cylce Rider???

Nothing was done to the new R51 do to all of honda's R&D going to the 1000RR. The clutch wasn't touched, anlong with nothing else. The bike just has stickers and a name. Who knows if it is even Nickey's. A guy @ work just bought so i got the skinkney. He only payed 10,5 for his. He traded the his 600RR for it and says he wish he didnt.
