Marcus,
Man are you going to have a great weekend! :thumb:

Isn't it funny how most anything else we buy we don't want to scratch up, but we can't wait to take out a new bike the next day after buying it. One of my best weekends this year was doing just the same thing. Enjoy! :)

Well its good:) comparing to my 133 KX the engine rates strong, its good on bottom and mid-very good in fact, maybe needs a tad more top but leaner jetting will help.Suspension is the best std setup ive rode recently-too hard still for me but much better than a CR/KTM etc.Handling is a strong point , it turns well and is stable.gearbox is very very good-full power shifts are easy.Not as tall as the 03 RM and it has much better bars, grips however are horrible.Very balanced front to rear.Decent 756 tires fitted.


 

best out the crate bike ive ridden in the 125 class.
more to come but im very busy with the bike and pcs etc.

pics coming soon.

More info, very firm seat, brakes are very good-rear just like a 03 KX but the front is not as good at this stage-however i think its better than a 03 RM and Cr front brake.Build quality seems very good, spares kit is a bit sparse but you wont get them anyway:( Nice exel rims:) gas tank top is a bit flimsey and the tube hasnt a check valve and falls out the holder-i used a small tie to keep it in the front number plate.Nice to have a yellow tank so you can see the fuel levels.

Its one of the best bikes i have found for feeling comfortable when standing up

Jetting needed one turn out on airscrew and a leaner clip position-main can now be leaned out a tad IMO.

Cant think of much else-any questions i havnt covered???

this wont make you feel better, but everyone buying a 04 rm in the US gets a brand new portable makita impact gun!

LOL, the irony is, ole Marcus would love one of those impact guns for taking out basevalves at the track, but now since he has the showa forks, that valve is at the top and he wont need one!

an 80 year old man smoked 40 cigarettes a day from the age of 14. he was walking to the shop to get a fresh pack of smokes and got run over and killed by the Malboro delivery truck. People said cigarettes would kill him one day. now thats irony!

and yes, new RM's here come with a full makita impact setup, a whole $400 value matey!:)

last year they came with a powerwasher. almost a good excuse to buy a new bike, but if i ever get one, my next bike will be a CRF, LOL

Looks like a "blue plate" special. What's up with the blue skies in England? I always heard it was dark and gloomy (I expected your bike to be covered in mud). Must be fake. :confused:
