All you 2002 R1 owners can you tell me what you think of your bike? I am putting money down on one this week and I would like to hear some feedback, since the reviews are not out on them yet. Thanks.

New to this forum. Wanted to wait until I got my new bike. Had a '97 YZF750R.

Got my Red '02 R1 Monday. LOVE IT!! Great bottom end torque and the FI is perfect. :rock

The weather here in Dallas has been bad lately, snow today, but next week..... look out world!

Yeah, gotta admit, the chicks sure think the bike is sexy as hell! I literally had to order a 2nd helmet from kneedraggers.com just to give the ladies rides that they've been beggin' for...

Makes me wish I were single again!!

(OH WAIT! I AM! YESSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!) :rock

I love my silver 02', my only complaint is that it makes my fingers numb after a short while. oh wait, I've been riding it in 28 degree weather.:D But seriously it's a great bike, although I've had to order a new exhaust can, it rattles, and mine seems a bit buzzy after 5k rpms & digital speedo is 5mph fast @ 70mph, all else is good. :rock

Just picked up my '02 Liquid Silver yesterday and put 80 miles on it. Coming from a '98 YZF600, I was surprised at just how comfortable it is . I was scared that it was going to feel MUCH more severe than the old Ziffer but was pleasantly surprised. Of course there is a little bit more weight on my wrists but since I am a drummer currently working in 3 bands--it's not painful for me. My only gripes,and small one they are, are the increased wind buffeting I get from the smaller screen and the mirrors and bars are a little buzzy. Other than that, the gearbox ids incredibly smooth and the FI is spotless. It's a bitch keeping it below 6000 RPM's I gotta tell you though!!!!!! Good news is that I was in a tuck and in top gear on I-95 last night and it was cruising at 95MPH at 6000 RPM's that ought to be good enough for the ride up to Bike Week in Daytona this weekend. I love this fucking bike!!! Only question is--why did I wait so long to get one???
