The Change

I finally got my stands in the mail today, so I decided to tear apart the R1 for the winter to clean and do maintenance. I discovered alot of goodies (some maybe not) on this bike, it has smog block-offs, a full exhaust system with EXUP delete, 520 chain conversion, speed healer, and a dyno quick-shift...yeah it has been tuned by the local bike shop for these. I ordered a different seat that came in the mail also, it's the OEM Comfort seat... kinda has a carbon fiber weave and R1 at the front of the seat. I found Permatex around the oil galley plug and a few other places, I dunno if it had been leaking or what.. but I have plenty of time to fully tear into the bike and find out. I didn't make it through the air box yet, that'll be tomorrow.
It had a Hindle slip-on, gonna change it out for a M4 here pretty soon and a few other small changes. I managed to snap a few photos in the process.
