Well not new here, but back on an ape. Used to have 2000 Gen 1 with all the goodies....
Found an 2004 Rsvr factory all alone in a garage. Milage 6700km, yes i know about the reset, but this has the papers looking legit, so dont worry me. It has been in hybernation for 7Years😱🤪
OMG LOVE IT. 

Doing full "overhaul" all rubber, fluids etc. Getting it back for summer flings. Been taking her appart,  checking every bolt, fasteners and cleaning.

The design looks so good even today.
Old red one.

So after buying gsx1400, i bought a Monster696. And had to have a mille again. So bought one, and gave the monster to my better half.
Just love the rotax and aprillia. What can i say, its got  a spell over me.

Nice bike! Is the mileage true, though? Since the 2004 models tend to reset their odometers...

If I’m uploading from my phone I press the tree and arrow symbol and it says choose file so I press that and it comes up where you want to get image from so I choose photos and click on the image I want then press ok, may say be patient whilst loading so press ok and once it’s loaded press the cancel and then the post reply.

Loving the bike's in the snow on the drive quality!
I know what you mean about the rotax mate I had three, bought a triumph which is a cracking bike I have to say but couldn't resist another ape so I bought another Gen2 recently but I'm breaking it as it's a cat c with all the desirable bits bolted onBig smile. The carbon looks cracking did you sand it back and fresh clear coat? One note not mentioned is the early Gen2 bikes had a recall for the swingarm cracking from the riv nuts on the inside, chain side. Good swinger one rivnut bad swingarm has two. If it's not been done you can get it sorted by aprilia but its a loooooong process.
I started out with nothing and I've still got most of it left

Looks like a great bike and excited to see how you get on. I have a 2004 Gen 2 RSV Factory so have sorted a few of the issues specific to the early bikes if it helps. Bring on the Spring!
