I'll give it a try (FWIW, lol)....
- Engine case seems different.
- seems to have front-mount rads but has holes for OEM side-mounts

That's it for me (with my current attention span anyhow)...

Beautiful looking bike BTW (clean, timeless lines).....

Round akrapovic cans
looks like it uses the stock style subframe / rear cowl unit, instead of a one-piece unit or endurance tail,
non-endurance style front fender,
it has dunlop tires, where *most* of the cabin bikes that I have seen have michelin

unique header design where it meets the canisters.
yes round akra cans(maybe not akra?)

and black outers on the forks

nothing too exciting but never seen those on a factory sp before

shame the bike was probably crushed so Honda dont have to pay taxes on it(the reason they destroy most their super expensive factory bikes)

I've seen very few pics of bikes with the bungs welded on that side of the frame.

They should sell them to me: you don't pay tax on an unregistered bike here... ;)

The "2-Two things unique":
The list of parts everyone is replying are good BUT> IMHO are NOT unique points.;)

Closest to almost catching 1 of them is, "b.miller" by going for the exhaust BUT, I don't think it is the exhaust canisters....>?<
I do think there is something Definitely different about the exhaust system, it's the mid.pipes where they meet starting from the collector\split and then run up under and over to the left side... This exhaust pipe is spaced quite abit more forward, of the "normal" Race exhaust pipes like this!... You guys see what I'm talking about?
The vertical pipes normally run up vert. together!> ;) Right?


I'm wondering IF it isn't the "Rear-sets & rear brake MC seems super tiny!...? And the last thing I see is, this team is actually running with 1 of these "Clear MC resviour Tubes" that we run as a mod.!..>?<


Peace Jeff

The exhaust looks to be a little smaller diameter then other HRC systems I have seen but it looks to be routed the same, as well as the canisters being round instead of oval.
there was a few systems.
the factory ones(my scans) were available in 2000-01 to works bikes(everyone else in japan etc used the akra low mount kit systems)

in 2002 akra made the kit system you see on most machines
design is a little different
and the factory systems are a lot nicer looking

the factory and kit exhausts are all built to HRC schematics(thats why Moriwaki made the special exhaust for their bike looking like it did)
makers such as TSR,akrapovic and old moriwaki etc just copied HRC guidelines
