well since selling my 51 (i'm sure most of you know it), i bought a ktm rc8r and built it pretty heavily. when it was all said and done it looked like this




sadly, after 3 years of horrible reliability and many many blown water pumps, i decided i needed something a little more reliable, and also something a little more fun for every day use, so i bought a 2008 cbr 600rr

and built it. of course. i loved the front end on the ktm so much that i stuck it on the 600. it took a bit of work and it's not quite 100% done (still have to build a top clamp), but this is how it sits at the moment..












this thing should be an absolute blast, really looking forward to this riding season

Nice new ride. A few weeks ago I followed your post over on ktm forums. Made my decision to lean towards Aprilia factory rsv4 bike. I was confused between these two bikes. Anyway your post over there help make my decision thanks.

Thanks. The rc8r was a fantastic bike when it wasn't in the shop, but I missed a ton of riding time. The 600 will be tough as nails

Disappointing your luck with the RC8r I still lust after on but when push came to shove and I was ready to buy I sprung for my R1 instead. I needed something I could ride daily and if it got knock over in a parking lot of a light low side I wouldn't cry nearly as hard as my Aprilia and the KTM just didn't fit that bill at all.

I love the exhaust on your 600rr. and That front end goes without saying.

Nice Wibbly. I've heard from other people that Forum really sucks. I'm on the R1-forum and just can't seem to find it in myself to get that involved there. lots of stupid stuff gets asked.
