I have an Akropovic slip-on on my R1 and was wondering how to reach its potontial. Akropovic says jets are"nt necessary but a buddy of mine had some custom carb work done on his (Ak slip-on also) and now he has trouble keeping the front wheel down. And let"s be honest, that"s what we all want outta life anyway isn"t it:yesnod ,as long as we don"t sacrifice top end .Any help would be appreciated kinda new in the aftermarket exhaust world. Thanks..........Josey:boobies

To get some midrange back you need to re-jet.
I'd go for a jet-kit no matter since it will improve the HP curve even more..
Yep! wheelies wheelies wheelies. That's what R1's are made for ;) not

I have the Akrapovic slip-on on my '01.
I had my dealer install a jet kit and the slip-on, and it ran like shit.
I finally decided to have Factory jet it on their dyno. Stock jetting was too lean. It's amazing what you can accomplish with a dyno. They'd fiddle with the carbs, throw it on the dyno and if they thought they could do better, they'd start over again....back to the dyno. They also threw in an ignition advancer. I gained about 6 or 7 hp throughout. The torque figures took a moderate leap as well. Smooth as butter.
In my opinion, for maximun gain, I'd go witha jet kit and a mechanic you trust.(preferrable w/a dyno)
good luck to you
Who makes a good jet kit for an R1?

Thanks again Twisted. I think I will have to get one of those kits before spring. Looks like a better investment than a video capture card.
