I thought I'd introduce myself to the group. I just bought my 2000 RC51 on Saturday and I'm digging the new ride. It only has 6k miles on her so she's barely broken in. I gave her an old and filter change, went over some bolts and nuts, and gave her a coat of carnauba. The sound is just incredible, as it came with some cf Microns slip-ons and it rides like it's on rails.

My previous bike was a Yamaha FZ6, which btw is a great bike, but this RC51 has won my heart for now.

Here's a pic of the new ride:

I didn't even know about the black rotors on the 2000 yr models. I thought I knew mostly everything about the different yrs. Welcome to the club though.

I noticed my 00 had the black rotor carriers but I honestly think the gold looks better. I guess i never really thought of it as a rarity.:banana
