    First let me say, I'm not a mechanic on bikes, but I am a very curious handy kind of guy. So... I bought a black 05 r1 for $3800. When the dude was riding it, I was like ok... sounds good, idle is steady, lights on, feels good when I sit on it and the tach is staying steady. So I blip the...

    I am a complete beginner when it comes to electronics on the bike. I have bought the bike used and it came with HealTech quickshifter pre installed. However when I gave the bike for major service, the mechanic was unable to understand how it works so he removed it and gave it to me. There are no...

    In the middle of a rebuild of my front end and my dumbass forgot to check the orientation of my brake lines. Could really use some pictures from someone who also has Russell brake lines installed. I've flipped them and tried them all sorts of different ways with no luck so now I turn to you...

  14. 04-06 R1 Mechanical Help
    I'm asking for any and all opinions, thoughts, and input on this cause I'm dead in the water about this. I have an 04 r1 and was on a ride. As I was pulling out from a stop I went to shift from 1st to 2nd and my chain broke then smacked my crankcase assembly busting a hole in it. I now have to...

    We replaced the cables, everything is done correctly, lubed the cables, no kinks etc. I'll post a link to the video I took showing the exact issue here, but basically the throttle tube is hard as heck to turn and won't snap back.

    Okay I replaced the thermostat and didn't have an o ring so obviously the thermostat housing is leaking, while looking at the left side (if sitting on the bike) of the bike I noticed an orange thing that looks like a gasket? Pardon my Idiocracy as I don't know anything about engines, but what...
