To be honest and this is just my oppinion. I hate the tail light on the 03/04 R1's. I think it looks like shit. the whole bike is beautiful and I love the look and lines of the whole bike but I hate the design of that taillight. Personally I think the 00/01 R1's tail looks better, and the 04+ are the best yet. Sexy bike other than that.

IMO I think it might look kind of weird, you typically see tail section upgrades to newer years but not the reverse, its like taboo. A 04/06 R1 tail section is too bulky (wide) looking on an 02/03, even with a Termi/custom undertail, but the newer 06/07 R6 tailsections look good on them. Do a search, there are a couple forum members who swapped 02/03 R1 tail sections for 06/07 R6 tail sections. One that comes to mind is a white 02/03 R1 with an M1 Laguna GP replica paint scheme :thumbup



another option worth considering is the Dynomite CF mono tailsection with underseat exhausts as on UK forum member "Scrappys" bike :bow

I think you may have mistyped but the 03 R1 and the 04 R1 are two different bikes. 02-03 Same 04-06 Same

he has some really nice (and unique) components on it, haven't heard from him in awhile, but last time I did, he was thinking of putting on the supercharger kit, even comes with custom CF mids :bow
