Talking Flexxx's 2015 R1 Build

I’ll keep this original post updated with the most recent progress of the build.

I also want to give a HUGE shoutout to:
@SBK Unlimited - Jason and Freddy have taken VERY good care of my parts requests and Freddy along with Anthony helped with this build tremendously with insight, as well as dyno tuning. They are my local shop and are A+++.
@MotoMillion - Mani is at the top for customer service. My first time working with him, and it was an incredible pleasure. Multiple orders and more to come.
@ridersdiscount - TJ is the man. Always treated me great and his assistance in this build is more than appreciated.
SportbikeTrackGear - Evan worked with me through email and made an order happen quickly when it was much needed.
LighTech Italy - They hooked me up with some awesome pieces and shipping was surprisingly fast coming from overseas.
ProBolt USA - David Cork coordinated my entire custom order and made certain I had what I needed. Flawless.
Saddlemen - Randall is a great fella to work with and it was a pleasure to team up with him for some quality and comfort added to the bike.
JL Designs - Ryan is quite the R1 guru and it shows through the products he is putting out. Ridiculous quality and technology, very highly recommended.





So I finally bit the bullet and sold one of my bikes ('11 R1) and picked up a deal on a Red '15 R1.




This is probably the most excited I've ever been on a "new" bike purchase, and I've had a decent amount of those. This '15 is essentially my dream bike, so, I'm going to do a pretty neat build on it.

Stay Tuned.

Sorry for your loss, also happy for your pick-up.
Rendering looks good, have fun with the new build.

Do you have to leave so soon? I was just about to poison the tea.

I mayyy be able to make that. But that's a big maybe. Haha. I still have your number man, I'll touch base with you on me coming out there. I wouldn't mind at least coming to hangout if I can't get on the track.

I am running the ftecu and will end up getting it dyno'd at SBK Unlimited once all is said and done. I appreciate the offer. I have a buddy that I'll shoot your way, he'll be in need of a flash here soon

It was a short-lived "loss" feeling

He definitely did. Already has some nice bits to start from. I'm stoked.

Believe it or not, it's still active. It's not in my hands, as it is getting structural testing and welding/reinforcement. There has been a ridiculous stall on that end of things, to the point where I'm not even being charged for the work because of how long it's taking. Long story short, it's still happening, I'm still waiting, and I have to keep other builds going to take my mind off of that one.

....I am signed up for Saturday and Sunday. Let me know if you are planning on stopping by.

Also just to be clear, I am not flashing 15's, was offering help with the software and such. SBU will hook you up right

p.s. don't slow the bike down with any yellow paint....Ian is just a bit daft
