Hello all

Hello everyone. I just bought a 2000 r1 all stock except Vance&hines slip on. Has 18k miles. Carbs recently rebuilt. I'm new to sport bikes. Don't know a whole lot. I will be looking to do integrated tail lights and flush front signals. And getting rid of the horrible stock levers. Any tips or anything is greatly appreciated thanks!!

Welcome to the forum, enjoy your new venture. I have lot's of info for you but don't have the time at the moment but will send you everything that I think will work well for your bike. Every year R1 is an excellent bike in it's own way, good choice!!!

Thanks guys! Was looking at some fz1 but couldn't find any I was willing to pay what they were asking. So now I have a r1. LOL. It's definitely going to take some getting used to. But I'm loving it so far. Just picked it up last night!
