12 Street/Track R1 Deconstruction - From "BOTM" to "OEM"

4116 Views 17 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  Farsighted770
Well, technically not BOTM, but easily a pair of Brembo HPK calipers and a couple of race-spec titanium bolts away from a BOTM worthy build... Many have graced this forum with their finest street and track builds, taking bikes with 0 miles off the showroom floor into their garages to create some of the most customized, clever, and most expensive builds we ever seen shy of an AMA-level race team's garage. But looking through the thousands of threads, there are many bikes that have reached this pinnacle of greatness, enjoyed BOTM/BOTY status only to be stripped and parted out; but the process has never been documented. No one has officially documented the process of taking their highly modified bikes back into stock, OEM form- Until now...

Yep. :yesnod

Here's a link to the first round of items up for grabs :sneaky

Hey man, you saw this coming a long time ago :lol
Well, one thing about modded to OEM is, it is certainly not fun :no Especially with this level of detail added to the bike. I literally had to map out how I was going to break the bike down, and list all the required components that need to be removed/replaced when apart...

First was the easy stuff... FlashTune DataLINK ECU Harness, solo cowl, saddlemen seat, windscreen, mirror block offs, etc... You know, the stuff most guys swap out upon acquiring a new scooter...

Then on to the spec mods...

Graves Velocity Stacks

Translogic Dash

Put these Attack Performance Triples on not too long ago and they are coming off too :crash

Even made sure I took off all the pricey ti bolts and other components...

But then we have this WSBK-spec plenum wedged between the motor and the frame...

...and he must come out too :shake

So off goes radiator...

Off goes exhaust...

down goes motor...

Out goes plenum...

Motor back in...

Easy as pie :thumbup

Before I can continue with the airbox, I need to yank these bad boys out...

Then it's on to suspension...

Time to pull my favorite mod :(

Then forks,

More tear down on the way... :drevil:

Sorry to see your bike return to stock - I always thought it was one of the nicest x-planes on the forum.

That being said, I'd definitely be interested in those Graves stacks once they come off.
damn..... this is going to be good!!! Good luck man.

Realy nice bike its a bit sorry that you gonna take it apart. i realy love you bike bro!

Apparently you're more of a "picture" reader huh? :lol
Yes youre right, yesterday i had a quick look around lol
But today i begon to read everything and i must say i feel stupid.

I was yesterday by my tuner ahnendorp tuning in holland and he is the first one in holland that can test the yamaha r1M!! it was on the dyno and it has 191rear wheel horsepower.
A standard bmw s1000RR has 193rwhp on that dyno.

I did headwork/racecams/MWR WSBK airfilter akrapovic evo2 and Yec ecu/cabletree etc etc and had 188'7 rwhp... The r1 2015 has less torq really less torq but he was saying just a hobby racer is better of with the RN22 and a pro with the r1 2015 because they drive different
Ah man!! I just finshed the build thread Sunday. Lol didn't think I'd see this. Incredible build. Can't wait for the new 1!
Bike is coming back together nicely! I'll post more detailed updates soon!!!

OEM clipons and triples...

OEM Dash back on...

OEM cockpit coming together...

Bike starting to look OEM again! More updates coming soon!
