r1 2008 $ 1500 budget....

hi , i've just went to a auction looking for a Repsol Honda but ended buying a beautiful 2008 r1 with 4500k with some suspension mods,and full exhaust .I live here in the states but this bike it's going to Argentina where i born, i go to use the bike for some drag races,i've been reading so many posts an this site and i'm more confused than before, i have like 1500 to expend but i don't know what to do before shipping the bike, power commander bazzaz, or what suggestions for more power you guys can recommend me?
thanks a lot!

welcome to the forum.

you say the bike has mods; but what exactly does it have? once we know that we can tell you what you need. most likely if you have a full exhaust, the previous owner installed a power commander or other fuel management system.

well then, i would say get a power commander either with or without auto tune. do you have the ability to use a dyno for a custom map in argentina? since you have an 08 you might want to get an ECU unleased. google it. it takes away certain restrictions the bike come with from the company. ecu unleased can also be used to install a custom map with out the use of a fuel management system

getting a fuel management system would be step one. then you can do things like brake lines, clip ons, air filter.

im not sure what graves spec front means.

best mod for the money hands down. I took my bazzaz off and sold it. if your not good with computers and tuning you can tell them the mods you have and they will put in a map for you. DO your research and read in the flashtune threads its so much more than just a pc5 or bazzaz.
