I've been a member for some time now and never posted any pictures of the bike. So here we go, a few shots of the bike.

I've owned it since March and it was in a bit of a sorry state when I got it, in fact, I probably should have left it there, after traveling nearly 5 hours, low on coffee with an empty belly I just couldn't wait to get the bike into the van and get home.

Since I've had the bike I've:

fully serviced it.
Changed Therese susp links back to standard height.
Had a TB balance @AP.
New tyres.
Carbon exhaust hangers.
Rear seat cowl.
New forks (the originals had the dreaded crack).
New decals.
Neutral jet.
Replaced coolant with Evans waterless.
HID conversion and all other bulbs changed to CREE.

Finally a damn good clean as the thing was bogging.   

The bike now rides and looks much much better and I'm chuffed to bits with it. Still plenty to do but I'll be waiting for the winter.

Looks really nice you've obviously spent a lot of time with that bucket and cloth, just needs the grass cutting now
If it wasn't for bad luck I'd have no luck at all

Cheers folks, rear sets, quick shifter and a PC next.

That's after I've painted the decking and cut the grass ofcourse

Talking of qucksgifters ect what's the best combo?
Also has anyone replaced the neutral jet for the 40? I've got it to change but wondering if there are any side effects to reducing the size.

You have done a great job on your bike, think it's really good when someone takes a great bike that has seen better days and returns it to a better state.

Please post your progress on quick shifter as that is a mod that interests me and I'm sure others.

Yes im in Cardiff as well but grew up in the Wye Valley

Griff / Lewis fitted my PCV when it last went up to AP and REPS Motorcycles in Caldicot fitted the QS and mapped it.

If you don't mind travelling Ledbury way Lee's Motorcycles is very good and could do everything

Hi Colin,

You should be able to hear me over in Bridgend now as I've got my Evo 6 system fitted lol

No I haven't ventured over that way too much this year, normally I head up the a470 towards Breacon or over towards Hereford way if I'm meeting up with my Brother

Could do an Abergavenny meet up for a coffee and bacon butty at some point

SO.... what exactly was it?

I think I see most of the R Factory bits... but the frame is polished... Frame swap?  Whats the story?

Love seeing more grey ones :) (Fastest color... don't tell the others!)

Well, as far as i'm aware its a factory. All paperwork says factory, all databases say its a factory. I didn't realise frames changed colour from an R model to a factory when I bought it, after finding this out I thought I had bought a modified R. however, when I took it to AP to have the TB balance done Griff gave me a bit of an insight to the bike using the chassis number.
What we know is that its one of the first Gen 2's to come into the country and was actually built in 2003 although its a 2004 bike. Griff seems to think it was one of the first factory bikes in the country, the chances are it was a demo bike and it could be a legit factory on a polished frame. The only thing he did say was missing was the carbon winglets If anyone has any for sale Wink

Based on that I'm going to say its a factory LOLLOL 

I would love to know 100% but I'm not sure how I could find out. 

It certainly is the fastest Wink, pulls like a train LOL

You can tell by the vin.

Here is the VIN Identification from the manual.

Also...  I completely respect Griff on this as he has seen more than probably anyone out there.  Early Factories have Signatures on the tank.

Interesting mystery!  :)

Also... for fun.  Look at the ecu.  There is a 6 digit ECU Firmware version marked on it.  That can also help date it for you.

software for early 04-RSVR with three wire timing sensor, AXONE ≥ 5.0.4
-664582 was the first generation map, ran poorly when switched to map-2
-664584 (file VD5G684$.BIX) first update and worked very well (first available with AXONE 5.0.2)
-664586 (file VD5G68B$.BIX) same as the map shipped with 2005 bikes
-664588 (file VD5G68Z$.BIX) map specifically to work with the EVO-6 race only pipe

software for later 04-RSVR with two wire timing sensor and 05-RSVR, AXONE ≥ 5.0.4
-664583 (file VD5L683$.BIX) same as 664584, originally installed in the later 04 bikes
-664585 (file VD5L68A$.BIX) same as 664586, originally installed in the 2005 bikes
-664587 (file VD5L68X$.BIX) same as 664588, for use with EVO-6 pipe

software for 06-08 RSVR (US 07), requires AXONE ≥ 5.0.6
-266536 (file VD5L980$.BIX) originally installed, no updates currently available
-266538 (file VD5L981$.BIX) for use with EVO-6 pipe

software for 06-Tuono (US 07), requires AXONE ≥ 5.0.6
-266531 original map shipped with early production, had issues with throttle response
-266532 (file VC5L980$.BIX) is the first update

software for the 07- 08 Tuono (US 07.5), requires AXONE ≥ 5.1.1
-266533 (file VC5L981$.BIX) original map shipped
-266534 (file VC5L982$.BIX) for use with EVO-6 pipe
