It looks good to me. IMO I can still see all your detailed parts it doesn't take away from anything. If you had a couple more decals, it would not be flattering at all. It maintains a good flow. I wouldn't add anymore, your bike is unique as is. Good job!

My opinion is it draws attention. It's one of the first things I notice when looking at the rear of the bike. If that's what you're going for then I'd say leave it. If not...well..you get it

Again, my opinion, ditch it. It looks too good to put that sticker on it :

Thanks Dee appreciate the comments mate. Don't worry there will be no more and I might be removing these yet but they are stick on 3 dimensional badges of a 2011 R1 not decals

It's well worth it mate I love this bike

Thank you all for your mixed opinions I may remove them and concentrate on just detail & some Gilles clip ons (gold & black) etc.

Winterized my bike, fresh brake fluid, oil, coolant, spark plugs, installed smog block off plates. Last but not least I installed full graves system on my 07 and had the ecu flashed! Thing is a monster now.

No major mods this week, but after nearly 3 years of owning my 09 R1, I finally got the suspension set up and tuned. I know a lot of you guys are big proponents of tuning and setting up the suspension, but I never could have expected it to make such a difference in feel, turn in, braking etc. in short it inspires new confidence. Makes all my other performance and cosmetic mods seem secondary to a well set up suspension.

Stripped my 98 down and put her in track clothing and got on the track for the first time in over a year, for a 14 year old bike she still goes well, the new set of brake pads made a great addition when it came to stopping power

Found it little down on power though as not used to revving the tits of bikes anymore and at her age I gotta treat her keen.
