Today i put a deposit on the bike of my dreams. I was adamant that I was going to buy a bike already prepped for track, but this came up on fleabay last night at such a good price, I couldn't resist it. I'll need to sacrafice 1 or maybe 2 trackdays to cover the costs of the bike and prepping her for track use, but f**k it.... I have a V4!!! 

14k, full dealer service history, just had the major valve service done (but I'm going to swing by AP on the way home to get them double checked)



Pick her up on Friday Big smile

I wasn't mate... I was after a track / race prepped jap4! But as I was browsing ebay last night this popped up... it had only been added a few hours before I saw it. There's 2 more bikes on ebay, same year, model, spec that were £2000 more... So after some quick man maths (adding up all the mods I 'need'), and a full check on the bikes reg, I went for it!

Mark I so pleased for you mate, like I said in my pm that was a brave decision about selling or braking your Rsv.
It looks like it paid off and if you are on track you got to have something up-to-date.
You could have spent loads more money on the RSV with no chance of ever getting even half of it back.
I have ridden my mate's RSV4 Rf and no matter how money I spend on mine it will never be a patch on it.
Anyway enjoy your lovely bike and you can put 200 tyres on it no problem and thanks for your help with that on of my favourite mods

Haha, yes 200's will fit this no problem, no idea what's on it now but they will stay on until she goes to the track, then some lovely sticky slicks will be going on.

It was a seriously tough call, in fact even the week before I broke it I was phoning Griff asking this and that about big bores. It was gut wrenching to start stripping all my hard work apart but once she was a pile of bits on the floor, I got over it pretty quickly. I think once the V4 is in the garage I won't have any regrets. Even when I broke it I never dreamed I would have got myself a V4, it really is a dream come true!

Cool! It's going to be a while up here yet. Roads are absolutely manky. March at the earliest I reckon Ouch But I've got a shopping list of mods that need fitted so that will keep me busy!

Haha, well I would tend to agree there, I've read quite a few anti AR topics. But, they do sound incredible, there's no denying that! It will be replaced in due course but with nothing less than an acky EVO 2 system, so I need to save my pennies for a while...

I think that is their USP, the sound. Not very track day friendly though with modern DB restrictions.

Definitely not. Luckily my local track (Knockhill) don't noise test. No idea what they put out but I'd hope it would pass a 105DB noisy day...
