Ya guys im back due to #903 post.

Well i have tried the Motul engine oil 15W50 Double Ester and i can tell ya its awesome oil.

1-Gear shift more easly.
2-Better clutch engage.
3-Smoother cluth.
4-Smoother engine.
5-Engine sound i think its crispier, well its!

Last 2 weeks ago with the old oil 15W50 yamalube the clutch ways giving me signs to be changed, with Motul i did not see these sings, maybe in the near future these sings will be back but for how long i have no idea!

Now I love Motul oils.

I'm still using the OEM oil filter, next time i would like to try the Amsoil oil filter with new clutch from Barnett, i hope.

Cheers

After 4 years of sitting in storage and the last 8 months in my garage, I finally dusted off my 07 R1 and took her to the shop to be brought back to life! 😊😜

Looking GREAT brotha! I really like what you've done with the bike.

Like I said in my PM, the brake setup is out of this world!


Thanks Petrol Spice

I believe I got about 90 pics for $40. Lot's of pics are just kind of duplicates though. I've always heard you end up taking several hundred pics just to get a couple good ones. I actually had quite a few decent shots. I don't think $40 was a bad price. I've gotten two full days of pics several times for $75-90. After a while they all kind of look the same but they're nice to have to remember the day.

Then he must have not liked me, I skipped the pics while searching or there are more since I looked yesterday afternoon Or maybe I was too slow and didn't make it around enough


Kinda hard to miss the primered R1 that has writing all over it though













Thanks to Polakw/ar1 for having his way with my tail...wait.....that didnt come out right
