Nice build!! looking great.
BTW, is that a MIG Hi-mount for a second gen R1 I see hanging on the wall?🤨
Yes it is, for a 2002-2003 R1. Would you believe I found it for $25 pickup on FB marketplace near JFK airport...had my buddy meet the guy since i'm in NJ. I actually had that same pipe on my 99 R1, loved it!!!

Why the different wheels? Availability?
So originally we were not doing wheels, but I ran across a for sale on the forums and the guy was local to me about 60 mins away. The price was reasonable, I think I paid 1650 with galfer rotors all around. We are not going full send here, trying to fit this into somewhat of a budget...:D

And I think you would notice the weight savings more on a carbon front than a forged alum front.

Removing ABS was a little nerve racking since you need to put the bike on jack stands. The pit bull stand is in the way of the junction box under the lower triple.

years ago I had a bike fall over( 90zx10) I decided when I bought a proper lift to find a way to lift the whole bike safely. I saw this chassis lift for a R1 and it also works on a Gsxr.
Takes all the stress away

I wish my bike was set up this meticulously. I think I am going to bring it into the dining room this weekend, I can tinker with it while recovering from surgery this winter.
This thread has me itching. This is definitely one BA build.
