RG – Let the Games Begin!

This took a long time to arrive from Japan and sadly was in worse condition than the photos showed when I bought it. Its one of the Japan only HB racing models.

Looks like it had been stored outside on the side stand so water had filled one exhaust, causing the barrel and crank to rust and the fuel tank had rusted through as well. Fairing was also broken in transport which is a real pain as you can’t get panels.

Bizarrely the entire bike has stripped down without a single bolt snapping and all the suspension linkages were still in the original factory grease. Weird that by the time I bought my GSXR Suzuki had decided not to grease suspension.

Going to be in this one for the long haul.
