How rare are RX50's nowadays anyway?
I would rate the RX50 as "pretty hard to find a mint one, but not too hard to find one beat up".
Online info says only 2,000 total production. USA only. Shares an engine with yamaha YSR. fyi.

Re: Official NS50F thread

OK, I've got a few minutes between things... 1) Yes both rear turn signals are broken at the stalk. I've not inspected them in detail, but I assumed some kind of polyurethane glue would likely bring them back into service and be stronger than the surrounding rubberized plastic. I'll think on the wa...

Re: NB50 Front tire mod
