Hey all been reading this forum for a while. Very friendly people and good advice. I have just signed up and am from Australia. I have a R1 2001 model. How much does it cost to turbo the R1. Plus the exhausts under the rear seat look awseome (like a Duke) how much and what do you think of them...
Cheers and hi all

another aussie member. We'll soon be taking over this forum. I've got a ride planned for tomorrow (sunday) meeting Stanwell Tops car park at 9:30am to go Macquarie Pass, Kangaroo Valley and Berry. My R1, a VFR750, CBR600, maybe a CBR1000, and maybe a few others. You're welcome to join in if you like. Just look for the screamin semen sticker on the nose of my 99 RWB.

The under seat pipes do look cool. Bike City in Adelaide have got a 99 red R1 with the four pipes like the MV.
Not sure on the turbo job though, I think $5000.00 Aus mark. Read something in AMCN a long time ago on a 99 turbo charged R1.
Someone should shed some light on it for you. :thumbup

1. Turbo $5K UDS
2. Underseat Exhaust
I think that the price for an underseat is a bit excessive for just a slip on. OTOH it's your bike and you get to ride it.
I gotz mo links in my brain than Borg... errr um MartinC

Hey guys welcome aboard. You guys produce some of the fastest roadracers in the world. "Thanks". What part of your country and months would be the best and safest to take a weeks tour on a bike. I heard you guys have some places with unlimited speed limits. Is this true? How are the cops? It would cost a mint to ship a bike there from the states, so could one of you post a web site or phone of a cycle tour agency?

Cant help with mileage cause I never checked.
With the carb injection thing, injection should be ultimately faster.
As far as diaphrams, if you maintain a good clean air cleaner, and dont run any funky chemicals in your scoot you shouldnt have any problems for years.
