Arrow My R1 Mods......

Not sure if anyone has ever done this before but since its the motorcycle off season Ive gone pretty crazy modding my one R1 everything from powder coating to new exhaust etc.... But then it hit me about getting a new paint job, not sure if Im going to keep the same paint scheme that is has but anyway the bike is matte black and candy red on the sides and metallic black everywhere else. The colors Ive been contemplating is doing the whole bike in a matte Jerez black and Melbourne Red. If anyone has any Ideas for a paint scheme they are more that welcome, will post pictures when done...

What other mods you have already done to the bike? I have an '04 R1 and did the BMC race filter, a power commander and a Termignony full titanium echaust with Carbon Fiber cans, it also has an alar system, LED's corbin seat and the usual dender eliminator, flush mounts, clear tail light, smoked screen and a few other things. The exhaust made the biggest difference, the sound and the added power is insane. It loves to hover arounf 160-175 mph on the autobahn, but I prefer the twisty country german roads.

I have always loved the R1 since ir rolled out on '98 but right now I am waiting to get out of the desert to be unfaithful to Yamaha and go with the S1000RR. I want the White BMW Motorsports color scheme. That bike is driving me crazy.

Is it an 09? If so then PLEASE post a video of how it sounds with the full Akra...

The new R1s are the best sounding bikes. Period.

Ive got two of the 09 R1s, I was going to get an HP2 Sport but no body on the East Coast had one at the time and I wanted something at that moment and didnt feel like waiting, but Ive been considering getting rid of the Yellow one for a S1000RR. Although I really like the Motorsports paint scheme Ive seen pics of the all black one with the carbon akro exhaust and It looks amazing


Will post a vid once I get it back together, Im still waiting on the turn signals as they take 5 or so weeks to produce in Canada but I cant wait its gonna look sick even before paint...
