New R51 in Alberta

Postby Brett » Sat Feb 22, 2020 3:35 pm


I bought an 08 R51 with zero options and almost 200k on it. Needless to say I have had some maintenance to do!

Broken rear coils, shocks with no oil in them at all, tires, ball joints, sway bar end links, battery and clamps, the dirtiest throttle body I have ever seen and lots of play in my rear wheel bearings are just some of the projects I have undertaken already.

This thing drives so much better now.

I've also built a bike rack for the inside of it, removed the centre middle seat, and replaced the head unit.

Howdy! That sounds a neglected one. Glad you are up to bring her back to life.
