Josh's R1M track bike rebuild (post crash)

Hi Guys,

I had a slight get-off with my track bike and thought i would share the rebuild here with you guys and hopefully get some advice and information along the way.

Here is a before and after photo.

Parts list for rebuild:
Aftermarket clipons
Breese switches
Motion pro throttle assembly
Motoholder subframe and fairing stay
Akrapovic slip on and link pipe with stock headers.
racers edge fairings
woodcraft key elimination harness


The fork cap and tube were damaged. i'm thinking about putting in a NIX 30 or even an FKR cartridge kit and getting rid of the ERS system, will either source a TTX shock or rebuild the stock if possible.

If anyone has any insight or advice with these parts, greatly appreciated.

Nice get off! Glad you are ok. Looks like the bike did some flipping through the grass

I'd still be laying there sobbing uncontrollably... glad you made it out okay and that you're (hopefully) able to rebuild the bike.

I luckily walked away without a scratch, the bike on the other hand.. Last time i use big crash knobs on the frame. Must have slide and dug in on the grass which made it flip.

It was a sad sad sad day but you have to move forward. Bike looks worse then it is and rebuild is well under way.

The front forks were the bike drama. Need to decide whether to repair the ERS setup or go a cartridge kit.

Also, anyone have thoughts on the best throttle assembly? Motion pro, Domino, Active etc?

I’ve looked at my frame protectors and wondered the same thing. Will it slide faster and become a wing and launch itself?
What kind of sliders were you using?

Motion Pro throttle is great. But I've also heard great things about the Domino throttle. Either one is a good choice.
Not sure about the diameter of the R1M Ohlins fork tubes, but if they're the same as the regular R1, I'd look at switching tubes and getting a cartridge kit.
For frame sliders, I use Woodcraft. They have a tapered shape which should prevent the bike flipping like that. I've crashed on em twice now with no real damage.
For clip-ons, get Evol Tech. You won't regret it.
And since you're rebuilding her anyway, look into the Evol Tech adjustable triple clamps and rear suspension linkage. They're a huge upgrade over stock.
For the button pods, I use Bike Sport Development ones.

All this stuff I'm mentioning you can get from Superbike Unlimited. Check my build thread for any other ideas.

Good luck with the rebuild!!

So i've sourced some FGR gas pressurized cartridges from a race team and bought a TTX shock. Getting rid of the EGR. Running the R1M outer tubes still.

Going domino throttle assembly, i havent heard a bad word about them.

Ooof - crashing sucks but glad you're OK!

+1 on the Woodcraft frame sliders. Have had to test them as well and they've held up w/o causing the bike to flip/roll - though all crashes are different.

I would however reconsider the Woodcraft keyswitch eliminator as I've heard they may still drain the charging system. Speedcell makes a nice harness and toggle switch for the same purpose which doesn't continue to draw from what I've been told.

I'd also consider checking out Yoshimura's Alpha T exhaust instead of the Akra. Exhaust is usually personal preference, but I think the Yosh looks/sounds better - and there's also been some talk of it producing modest gains (though I think each exhaust mfg makes similar claims).

Best of luck with the rebuild and getting back out ASAP!

Already got the woodcraft keyswitch so will have to test it for now. I usually leave my bike on trickle charge anyway. Lets see how it goes.

Already ordered the akra too.
