Yeah, I've lucked out with the truck so far, but it is definitely showing it's age. I bought it six years ago with 120k on it from the original owner who was a toyota master tech. Recently I did the timing belt and all idler pulleys, water pump, valve cover gaskets, alternator and valve adjustments. I still need to replace all the fluids in the differentials and transmission/transfer case. All the suspension bushings are really starting to show their age, and it has all kinds of ticks and rattles, but keeps on going no matter how hard I drive it, it has never left me stranded once in six years.just so you know my 4runner has 235k on it's 3.0L auto. and starts right up when the battery isn't dead. Stupid parasitic draws. I hate chasing electrical issues.
Sorry for the late response, the project has been on hold for a while now with my cross country move and starting of a new job.I know this is an old thread but it is the reason I joined up here. I'm also building an rc51 streetfighter I'm just going about it a little different. I came across this thread researching rc51 streetfighters. I bought my sp1 as a salvage theft recovery so it was pretty beat up. It's an 01 that I payed $900.00 for who can pass that up?. I found the bike on CL the guy was asking $1500 but it hadn't ran for 3yrs so I talked him down to $900. Bike needed the ignition wires reconnected, a fuel pump and plugs (i changed all fluids just in case) and runs great. Problem is the fairings were destroyed when the theives tried to hide it in a stack of cinder blocks. So instead of doing a full restore I decided to go the street fighter way. I'm going to get a smaller battery and move everything forward so I can chop the tail right behind the seat. Kind of a bobber look. I'm gonna paint it flat black and red to give it an old school hotrod look. It'll look rough but run strong loud and fast. When I get time I'll put together a build thread.
How much was your radiator kit and where did you get it?
Crazy design, where is the oil cooler.There was a company selling some on ebay recently, but I don't know if they still do. If you have three grand to blow there is serra racing in italy: Serra Racing, Radiatori Ducati Honda Yamaha Kawasaki Suzuki Aprilia
Yep, all one piece. bubbu on here had a set that he sold recently: http://www.speedzilla.com/forums/honda-rc51/66215-my-front-rad-kit.htmlIt looks like they connected the top rad and the left Rad (as you sit on the bike) with a section on the right. If you follow the water line from the pump, it goes to the bottom (instead of the top on most front systems except HRC).
Either he said that is what he paid, or someone had emailed them at one point. I'm sure the changes in the exchange rate means that the price will be different, but they were something like three grand.WOW those are nice. I am not sure how I missed them before. How did you come up with the price?
Guess I put up the wrong pic, changed it for ya!Where is your front fender?
I have a red 1000rr on I would send you for 30 bucks plus shipping lol
