of course it will only be a matter of time before we get posters wanting to know if they should buy and 04 engine and try to mount it in a 02/03 model... :D

All jokes aside.. good tip..

it wouldnt be so wise to go out tomorrow and drop $1000's of dollars on mods on your older R1 just for it to keep up with the 04 R1's.. Mainly because if that bike is wrecked, stolen or sold (which all bikes eventually are) you would never regain that money spent in mods..

if you already heavily modded out older R1 to match the 04 R1.. then your best bet would be just to enjoy it and ride it..

Does anyone know if a 2004 engine will fit in a 2003 frame ?

amazingly knee i know somebody stupid enough, with enough money to spend who is looking to DO JUST THAT..

he wants a 'sleeper' bike, just to street race with..

being as though some of street races here can earn you up to $5 grand a nite.. he could possibly pay for the work in one nite.. but after that.. everybody would know his secret..

not to mention most of the guys betting that type of money are running Busa's well into the low 9's on the track..

You think I could shoehorn an '04 R1 engine into my '99 R6?? That would be sweet.
It makes you wonder when Yamaha will do the R6 like that to make it even smaller.

I mean really, a little NOS goes a long way... It could be done no doubt. Of course frame modifications would need to be done, but for drag racing it shouldnt really affect the handling that much...
