I personally don't care for it; the decal makes that area far too busy.

Also, that bike doesn't see the road, I refuse to believe it. It is far too clean.

The bike looks good, sir.

Starting to agree mate, but the bike does see the road it has over 12,000 klms on it and I love riding it and doing it up. It has also done a track day at Phillip Island but is too hard to replace if something went wrong. It has just had new disc rotors put on over Winter and is going out over the weekend

Steve...what I meant to say was something along similar lines as Minacious...

Gold highlights are fine if done right...but it's easy to tip over the edge to being cluttered and gaudy. Personally I don't think the swingarm decals do it any favours.

I may or may not of been too pissed to say it carefully, on FB! sorry.

No problem Ben, a persons opinion can be misinterpreted as criticism at times but I think that you and I can take the piss out of each other without a PSB type scenario All is good this is the result

Knackers, it took me awhile to work out if I liked them or not.
But I must say it does look better without them.
Your bike is all class mate.

I've found swinger decals rarely work, there is no flow with anything down there. This was he case here too, don't blame you trying but it's cleaner without them mate

Just picked this R1 up the other day..A girl had it for the past 6yrs. In real good shape and absolute monster! Runs so tight and tons of life! She was a little one and had a lowering link on it...I took care of that by putting the original one back in place. Changed fluids and and gave it a proper cleaning and looks even better..I'm so glad to find one of these older R1's in this shape..I loved my 2000 R1 and regret getting rid of it..So I feel redeamed : )
