So, since I joined almost a year ago things changed. Sold the YZF600R to a co-worker and bought an 04 RC51. Got it inexpensive but had to put work into it as it was sadly abused.
Custom shifter because of broken kick stand. Had to weld a thinner extension. Also had to repair the tank on the right side because it had some crease bends. Heat wrapped the exhaust, and engineered the rear light assembly (plastics didn’t have it).
Replaced: the entire rear wire loom, CDI, pulse ignitor, spark plugs, battery, brake lever, head lights, signals, windshield, various screws, and the plastics.
Here is the before pic.
