So got an 07 R1, I installed K&N air filter but basically everything else is stock. I got 150 dollars on hand and I wanted to find out whats a better bang for my buck out of these choices...
1-A&R Racing Baffles
2-Alpinestar Heated gloves *I live in San Diego, so I might buy winter gloves instead*
3-some type of ECU reflash *not too familiar with this*
4-520 chain and sprocket kit
Nothing wrong with it but I don't have a speedo healer for the bike and still like to have the top speed not that I really have ever used it though. I'm just saying I'd prefer the deeper and louder exhaust if he only had that much money to spend.
Your going to get the biggest "seat of the pants" difference from the c&s combo. Less weight, getting into the meat of the motor quicker, looks (the Renthal + D.I.D. look), and I figure do it once, do it right.

Not trying take over your thread here but I'm in the same boat. I have on 07 that I bought brand new (in 07 shortly after they were released) and ended up having to put it in storage a little less than a year after I bought it. The bike ended up sitting in storage up until march of this year. Although she's getting up there in years, she's still a baby as far as mileage (about 1200) and except for a fender eliminator, it's bone stock.
So after 4 years and 8 months of sitting, I put her in the shop yesterday in hopes of getting it back up and running. I'm also looking at mods and a flash is definitely something I've been considering. Some of you may be familiar with the "Yamalag" glitch that some, if not all of the 07 had. My bike fell into that category and I was never able to get it fixed. I'd assume that the original owner of your R1 would've gotten the first ECU swapped out if he had that problem so it may not affect you. What I want to know is does anyone know if a flash would fix the "yamalag" glitch?
