Just traded in my 02 R1 for the 04 yesterday. All I can say is holy sh*t batman, the thing is unreal. It is a little slower in roll ons due to the gearing, but once you're over 6k RPM its all over. I had a friend on an 03 and we did roll ons from 60 in 6th. He pulled out to where his rear tire was even with my front, but after that it was all the 04.

Oh yeah, the thing will pull a power wheelie at 85-90 MPH if you goose it in 2nd gear! Way too much fun and worth every :rock

It's for preventing premature wear and tear dude. Some of us here cant afford to change a bike every year.
