Thinking about Buying an R1 this Spring, Anything to look out for?
Been riding over 2 years now.
Have an SV650S and an R6 Track bike
I want sell the SV to move to a 1000CC bike and I do really like the R6, so an R1 road bike should be to my liking
Originally I wanted to buy an RC8R but the one I want is just way out of my price range plus they are Very Rare (Not many people selling in Ireland, none in fact)
However, I am hearing horror stories though from a couple of people on the newer R1's
Big End going on the Big Bang Models and Valves popping into the engine on the earlier ones.
Is there any truth to this or is it just bad luck
Any advice is greatly appreciated.
