taken about 2months to get it to this stage and spent just over Ģ1000, so far replaced all brackets, wheel bearings, all brake pads, both tyres, carbon effect brake and clutch lever, new speedo cable, speedo drive, tachometer cable and tachometer drive gear, second hand fairing (as old one was bent and basicly f**cked, it had obviously been fallen off) and finally replaced all the headse bearings, spacers and bolts!

ryanperkins
12-19-2011, 05:56 PM
all replaced fairing brackets, and brackets are all genuine and cost a bomb! :(
also when my dad picked up my fairing for me (from london) he didnt relise it had a mighty crack in the nose cone :( also the picture of the bike in black is how it looked when i first got it, not much has changed as all work has been structural and mechanical! :P

Shame about the crack, bit of aluminium strip on the inside might fix that though.

ryanperkins
01-19-2012, 04:46 PM
also the bill is give or take Ģ2000 for my bike (a) :rolleyes:

xXxKillDogxXx
01-19-2012, 05:16 PM
Not being rude but i think you went abit OTT on your 50 with that sort of money really since with Ģ2000 ive had a Rs50, Rs125 and a Rx50 and ive just bought a GSXR400 today for Ģ500... however i like the exhaust and have to admit i wanted that aswell bit weird how they go so high tho dont you think?

ryanperkins
01-19-2012, 05:31 PM
I know but I work weekends and do three paper rounds, as I don't drink or whatever means I have plenty of money sitting there so I spend it on my bike :p but it's like my BMX I spent about Ģ1200 on that!! :O but cheers man, I wanted to be different so went with the Polini can ;) and I quite like the new positioning of the exhaust, gives it a more clean look I think but about 200 of the total cost has been garage costs :p

xXxKillDogxXx
01-19-2012, 06:24 PM
What do you mean garage costs are u renting one? i was considering doing that tbh since ive got 4 bikes atm GSXR400, RS125, Motorhispania RX50 and Aprilia Rx50 lmao

Nice bike lad, that exhaust sounds really well,

The thing about rs50's is that you can allways find a way to put money into them, I wouldnt put too much money into it becasue you will never get it back if you sell her, Get yourself a rs125, That would make more sense, its not worth putting hundereds of pounds into an rs50.

But anyway best of luck with yours. :)

i know!! and about the iridium screen... gave up on sourcing one, everywhere couldnt get hold of them :( but now got a dark smoked screen on my way (much better than whats on my bike now as some nob'ed spray painted it black "really shit" and put stickers on the crap spots) :L and now got a carbon fibre clock surround on my way too ;)

bike is now waiting on a new clutch (fitting tomorrow along with my 14t sprocket and oil seal) my bike can sit at 60/65 easy but can be pushed to 70, my gearing is 12/47 atm and it has a 19.5mm carb with an 85 jet. is this still a 50cc?? :O

Michelet
03-13-2012, 03:24 PM
The bike is a 50cc until you change the cylinder for a bigger one ;)

ryanperkins
05-04-2012, 03:53 PM

its gunna be ferrari red now! :D all fairing, huggers and wheels :) but i cant change or delete the poll :( :L

tbh i liked the blue but tell you what the red sounds good!!
black frame
red fairings/plastics
black wheels
red rim tape
black aprilia stickers

05-04-2012, 05:41 PM
Just leave it how it is looks ok. You will only ruin the bike

Glen1990
05-05-2012, 01:15 AM
nooooo dont do it red!! yours looks really nice with the blue!!!

RS_Patrick
05-05-2012, 02:52 AM
I wouldnt do it Red, unless its Red and White, Red fairings, white wheels with red rimtape, white bit around the headlights, white section on the side fairing, white bit on the tail.
Bit Ducati style, but to be honest i would rather do black with red or yellow accents/striping.

ryanperkins
05-05-2012, 12:50 PM
Hate the black look though, it's too common :( and yeah it looks ok in photos or from a distance but up close the fairing is pretty shit condition And the paint is terrible!! I like the idea of red but with white wheels :) if anyone could do a photoshop or something I'd love it!! ;)

chrism15
05-05-2012, 01:50 PM
what about re-spraying it the same colour blue? nice colour and then u will have no scratches and itl be a nice fresh look

personally i think you should get ya engine sorted out with a race crank to cope with that top end (just to be safe) and when you get a bit more spare money decide on a colour sceme and spray :)

in the mean time just think about different colours so when you actually do spray it you know youv got the right colour

i think the red would look good to be honest, like i said above
nice ferrari red plastics/fairings
black frame
black wheels
red rim tape with black aprilia stickers on body work

nicketnoo"s red tank looks ACE, but i like the blue as it is too so might be worth just a fresh lick of paint

ryanperkins

Like the mono seat mate. I want a carbon effect one. What top end you got in there then?

lbwoody
05-20-2012, 07:43 AM
Do you know what paint you used on it? :p

ryanperkins
05-20-2012, 03:55 PM
i didnt paint it mate, brought the fairing like it :P

lbwoody
05-20-2012, 06:00 PM
Ah, really like them :)

Not sure what bike to get, an rs 50 or anything similar is what I want. What do you reckon? :P

chrism15
05-21-2012, 01:31 AM
why have something similar when you can have the real thing, get a old type Rs50 99-05 :p:

ryanperkins
05-21-2012, 11:33 AM
99-05 rs 50 mate!! newer dont compare!! :D
and others well id just rather have the aprilia, its always getting looks and i always get questioned about.
some old people think its like a 250 or something HAHA

apriliamandan
05-21-2012, 11:41 AM
im soo hooked on the rs50's now, want to get another one maybe a 1995 version lol

chrism15
05-21-2012, 11:48 AM
alot of people used to think my old one was a 600! they just wouldnt accept it was 50cc - mixture of generally the bikes size, fact it has gears, shape but the exhaust on mine helped :p:

if i was to buy another one it would either be, 1999 Or the 2005 but probly the 2005 because it will already have the phbn carb ect

Mine is 2005 and love the colour scheme but i want a single swing arm one and make it trackday inspired....premix...big open carb etc etc :) next year...

Chris u can get a rs125 or mito if ya 17 and have cbt right?????

ryanperkins
06-12-2012, 02:13 PM

shes dead :'( i was involved in an accident on the way to school yesterday morning, my bikes a write-off but the engine is tip top still ;) not sure about my exhaust though :'(
but im pleased to say the police have said its not my fault (i knew this :P) stupid w**ker pulled out from like 20ft away in front of me :spankie:and because of the rain i couldnt stop and had no choice but to put her to the floor :(

but i did buy a new rs50 the same day, picking it up saturday :D:D

its a 2000 model, 10,000km on the clock only 5 owners
i think it needs a carb clean as he says it runs, but not to well
its totally standard (bonus)

needs tax & MOT
but ive done a HPI check and all is clear!

all for Ģ350 GET IN!!:cheers:

Decal? Tune? And are you going to get rid of that white handle bar end? :) :) :)

chrism15
06-12-2012, 02:44 PM
unlucky ryan, Ģ350!? bargain

my advice to u simply swap the engine :) take urs out pop it in there and then sell the other?

and your above quistion yes you can ride a 125cc bike on a provisional Uk licence, im doing it right now! :) they just need to be restricted to 65mph and sure mines restricted :angel: if your gonna get one get a 2 stroke! POWER:burnout:

gunna leave all the panels as its fairly tidy :)
ill tune it eventually but i want a different exhaust if i do :P
and im not gunna swap the engines out as mine still had standard crank and if i still had the original speedo, it had done well 30,000km :O with the only top end rebuild being the one i done :O
and this one has only done 10,000km :P

and dont worry that crappy bar end will be gone ;)
and im keeping my polini top end and replacing it with the standard barrel, piston and head which is all in my shed :P

ryanperkins
06-12-2012, 03:09 PM
forgot to add it needs a new front tire and break light cover :P

chrism15
06-12-2012, 03:11 PM
i noticed brake light cover :p: just swap loads of bits off ya other Rs that was crashed

polini top end swapped onto new one

new exhaust for new one

brake light cover for new one

some polish :p:

ryanperkins
06-12-2012, 03:16 PM
i tthink the exhaust is dented and maybe bent from what my cousin said (he recovered it) but im getting it back tomorrow :( ill upload some pictures

but i was thinking of something different for the exhaust, something like this....
http://www.vsmotoparts.com/brands/aprilia/rs-50-1999/turbokit-gp-lacado-50cc-minarelli-am6

because not being funny, the crash has scared me a little and i think im gunna go for looks instead of speed on this new bike :)

any info on that exhaust for me (just curious) and its only Ģ130, bargain but should look cool and be LOUD
my polini one was Ģ240 :O

*edit - but dont worry ill salvage what i can :)

Holfy
06-12-2012, 03:23 PM
Looks good, where did you buy the carbon for the steering(?) donīt know what itīs called

i have also got this on my bike made it myself out of carbon fibre sticker wrap ;)

chrism15
06-12-2012, 03:23 PM
its normal to be scared after a crash, its natural

same as that heart sinking feeling when you know you dont have chance to brake coz its natural no matter how big ya balls are :lol:

what id do is stick the polini top end on the new bike and that exhaust looks the bollox dunno how it performs but i like it

sell of what is SAFE to sell and make a lil more money back

ryanperkins
06-12-2012, 03:29 PM
i know, looks nuts dont it?!? :D think im gunna go for it as it looks mad and i dont know anyone with it :P

Engine is still ok... but everything else looks knackered... that bike is a gonner, not worth rebuilding, better sell what you can save and save for a 125 or something.

And dont put attacments in your post but use photobucket or what ever to add pictures here.

chrism15
06-13-2012, 10:42 AM
i nearly got taken off my Rs50 JUST LIKE YOU but i was fortunate enough to slam on and give the bloke the finger:banana:

coming down a main road and saw a skoda octavia waiting to cross my lane into little tesco, i could see him from about 4 minuites down the road. i dropped a gear just incase he was to go at that moment but no he waited and so i carried on.
he then decided to go JUST as i got up to him! :WTF: so i slammed on and the front wheel locked up so i let go of the brake thought F"ck this and screamed it passed him in 1st:spankie: what a stupid thing to do and wait until they JUST get up to him

Michelet
06-13-2012, 03:40 PM
Well guys.. I almost ended up doing this in 90 km/h..
A stupid guy waiting to drive onto the highway, then he see me, brakes, and when I'm 10m away from him he just drives!

Had to slam over to the other lane, but it was a car there. Luckily he braked and I gave full throttle and managed to pass him with cm clearance.
:pissed:

Would probable be dead right now if that guy hadn't braked..

Had about 190 in pulse the whole way home.
The most scary experience I've ever had!

@EJD, Yeah.. Really lucky
@Chrism15, Thought about following him and ask what the hell he was doing, but since I'm driving a ped and there is a 45km/h here in Norway I decided to just let it go.. The whole bike started wobbling because of the sharp turn. ;)

06-13-2012, 05:48 PM
I slammed with a 4 day old scooter into the side of a van that turned of the mainroad into the driveway of a feulstation... total los for the scooter and a nice scar on my kneekap from the ignition lock...

And with my RS50 i had a guy that just drove out of a feulstation in the rain with out properly looking left and right onto the road (he never saw me untill he heard a crashing noise)... took really long to get over my fear of "driveways" and sideroads etc. after that.

Sounds nasty, crashing a bike is one of those things that you don't really feel scared about until it happens.
Mind you, not that I have ever crashed a bike, I think I have only rode a few miles so far :(

Sounds nasty, crashing a bike is one of those things that you don't really feel scared about until it happens.
Mind you, not that I have ever crashed a bike, I think I have only rode a few miles so far :(

Its especaily nasty wen you always look out, and some idiot who doesnt pay attencion/doesnt look causes you to crash, because you never know wen that going to happen and its something completly out of your controle you get scared wen you drive past a similar road situtaion like an bussy petrol station or an other similar exit or sideroad.

I had a fun experience today guy pulled out on me looking the wrong way ON HIS MOBILE PHONE! had to swerve out of the way Luckily it was a warm and dry day. But it really shit me up basically had my knee down.. After recovering from a mini heart attack i followed him... noted his plate and reported him to the police. I know it sounds petty, but last year my friend died because of some idiot texting on his mobile phone, he veared into the wrong side of the road , my friend swerved out of the way and lost cotrol of the car and hit a tree. Died on impact...

did the right thing reporting him.

i nearly got hit about 3 weeks after owning my Rs50, ok i couldnt sleep :rolleyes: so i decided to go outside at 12:30am and make faring brackets for my side panels (at the time they were held on by cable ties :p:) but at first i thought i see if i prefered it without side panels (at the time seemed alright) so i went for a ride with no side panels at 1am.... going down a main road at about 30mph (probly only time iv actually bothered with the speed limit haha) anyway a taxi driver OBVIOUSLY thought it was 1am and no one is out at 1am so he wasnt looking... just as i got up to the junction bam! he went straight out and i watched him, he didnt look my way! so i slammed on and stop just before his door. he shit himself knowing he didnt look and at this point he is diagnoly parked across the main road coz hes noticed iv just slammed on to the side of him and he reversed and let me go on as if to say sorry? gggrr

iv never had a crash, come close countless times but never hit the deck yet :)

few off top of my head

on way home following my dad on my new suzuki, in a car park.... he went to turn in and park to the right.... i went down the right hand side full throttle - luckyily my dads a good driver and checks his mirrors ect and turned away just in time. laughed it off thank god :p:

in the snow riding at 40mph down a main road... watched a lorry in front of me slide SIDE ON and slowly turn back! and then i did the exact same thing - wouldnt say i nearly came off though it was more like "shit im going side ways but still straight ahead" :lol:

came up to a set of lights on my RS with two mates on peds.... filtered through the traffic to the front, anchored on the front brake and it dived sidways coz of LOOSE ROAD SURFACE like absorbant granuals. NO SIGNS OR EWT felt like suring the council but no damage

Almost had a hot blond cop under my bike today, they parked the car in a right hand corner on my side of the road and she had the door all the way open and was standing next to the door on the other road half... ok, its a 30kmh/20mph zone, but still its not smart to put a car there on the inside of the corner and than stand with the door wide open next to it (they just arested someone they put in the back of the car)

I thought you were going to say she was inspecting it!
