So as some of you may know, I am an absolute newb when it comes to my R1. I try to read as much as possible, and I try to learn as much as possible. But I still have some questions... If at all possible.
So during the winter, due to some excess cash, and some free time, I started modding my 04 R1. So far, I must say, I am having an absolutely splendid time, but I've run into a couple issues.
My list of mods include....
Akra carbon fiber slip-ons
K&N air filter
Now, she hasn't run since these installations, and I had planned on doing some other things first... But these parts kind of fell into my lap so... Should I buy a PCIII/V? From what I've read, all this increased airflow may make me run hot? So is there anything else I should worry about?
Secondly, I bought a pair of Gilles adjusters and lifters(I think that is what they are called?), and after changing my sprockets, and installing them, there is a clicking noise... Now I've pinpointed it down to the lifters clipping my bolts/nuts. Is this a sign that I installed incorrectly? Or perhaps that I just need to take the bolts off the lifters and file them down?
Anyways, I'm sure ill run into more questions as I go, but Nj has hit a warm week and I'd love to get out on it while its nice... But don't want to rush anything.
