Bought this bike about a month ago and was just the saddest poor excuse for a bike. It was a complete POS! Was someones barn bike and just had no clue what he was doing or the previous owner and i honestly felt bad for the bike haha.

Here is a list of the wrong.

-Mix matched bolts (everywhere)
-Carb needed complete rebuild and cleanup
-bent radiators
-ALL front spokes were loose (also bent rim)
-rear rim had a flat spot (both exels)
-Exhaust was for a honda and was cut bent and welded to fit the bike
-sub frame had a bird shit weld holding exhaust on as well as random hardware
-front brakes were frozen
-rear breaks were a sponge
-suspension was blown out
-spray painted chain
-all bearings were rusted no grease
-all seals on motor were bad
-split the case and broken parts were jumping around (Lifter Pawl was snapped in half)
-All Trans bearings were shot
- Half of the bike was in my trash can by the time i got home basically.

The Good
-Frame is good
-brand new wiseco clutch and basket

So This is basically a full build from the hardware out!

Had some similar problems with my recently bought RM as well. The pipe didnt fit well and burnt the bottom of the tank a bit.

I love the bird S*** welded subframe and spray painted chain. That bike was clapped out to the max. Looks good so far. The radiators will hold up for a while but a hard crash they will separate the sides from the cores. The stock radiators could be straightened and are made of far superior aluminum.

Awesome build! I've got an 04. Know anyone selling a carb slide from an rm? Mine is chipping and the part is hard to find new.
