The RS has different steering geometry (rake and trail) than the ST, and is a
little shorter; these make it turn in a little faster and gives a more nimble
feel. Having had an ST loaner for a couple of months while my RS was in the
shop, I had a good opportunity to compare. I believe the RS is only about 20
or so lbs lighter.

I've just taken a mates RS for a ride, he rode my ST. I know the RS is
lighter than my ST but this felt much more nimble and quicker. Its a 2001
compared to my 99 model. Does the RS have the same 19 tooth counter sprocket
(mines got all the 00 updates including the cursed 19 t sprocket)? Just how
much lighter is the RS? Does the RS have a different fork angle? Or is it
just a case of the RS being Yellow? The one thing i missed was the ST
fairing which gives more protection for us larger people.
Sticky hand grips.......you've got to be kidding!!! I had a VF1000R once and
the grips went tacky from old age and had finger prints all over them, maybe
the grips on this bike should be checked.......after cleaning off the
liberal coating of Bulls**t.
