Hey fellas, I have a 2000 RC51 I am selling. It has Micron slip ons, lower gearing with speedometer compensator, brand new Michelin Pilot Power tires and battery, 5600 miles, valid registration and clean title, never been down, and garage kept. I am asking $7500 and I have the title in hand. I'll throw in a set of leathers, helmet, and pit bull stand for an extra $500. The bike is located in Dallas.

If you know anyone that might be interested, please pass this along.

Thanks,
- Brian

I'm getting out of bikes for a while. I've decided to focus on getting my car to where I am happy with it. Then I can get back into bikes as my budget allows.

Yeah, it does sound crazy. But hopefully when I am done the ol' 94 Vette will run low 11's in the quarter. I also have a few suspension mods in mind so it can take the corners even better than it does now.

I'd be interested, but I don't have the room.

What are you doing to the vette? I'm heads/cam, headers, intake, etc on my C5. On slicks it would be good for low 11s and trap around 120-122.

Well, the plan is to build up a 396 with my buddy. But first I'm going to start with headers, exhaust, cam, and heads. Right now it has a completely stock engine. I'm also going to see about dropping a few more pounds as well. It would be great to get the car to about 3000 pounds. That way I won't need as much power and won't break as much stuff. I've already dropped about 100 pounds and it makes a difference.

About 135 and it was very stable. I could have definitely used a bigger windshield though.
Did you have much more to go or what? I'm tryin to get the top speed(or close) of one. That's a clean bike, by the way.

It is supposed to go just about 170 due to its superior aerodynamics. It was still pulling hard at 130, I just didn't feel like going faster than that.

Cool thanks. I'm still pissed about getting smoked by my buddies 1000. I'll get over it in a couple of days. Then I'll be pissed again after the weekend. It's a viscious cycle...until i get an R1 anyway.

The R6 wasn't built to out run a R1 in a straight line. :2cents:
Take that fight to the corners!

My mind is on the top speed subject right now. My buddy has a GSXR 1000 and my 6 was no match(didn't expect it to be), but it hurts a mans pride when you get dusted as bad as I did.

Well, I did get quite a kick out of smoking my friends who had 600's when I had my GSXR1000. It was just too easy, almost like they hit the brakes or something :dthumb:

I love going by on the back wheel! :lol:
DLITALIEN; Ill say it again The R6 wasn't built to out run a R1 or GSXR 1000 in a straight line.
Most the guys I know on liter bikes cant keep up with the good 600cc riders in the twisties.
