Yeah. Nothing wrong with the bike. You just need to get in better shape or get a super naked.
OK, this made me laugh.Come on! I'm 6'3", 53 years old and have only owned R1's. The wife, R6's. We ride all day. 100's of miles. And I'm definitely bangin' the wife before rides! No problem with the wrists.
Yep. Just noticed that too. He’s breaking his wrist just to clutch.
Oh shiiiiiiiiit. True. That's awful.
Just bought myself an 07 R1 and I’m 186cm 130kg and I surprisingly found it comfortable after an hour of riding, only my hands were cramping up and this is my first bike, stick with it hopefully it works outHi team,
I purchased my own Yamaha r1 2007 finally, after years of thoughts and dreams. And although it’s the second day, i am feeling a bit negative about my whole experience.
The bike looks and perform great, but my big problem is that i found it extremely difficult to drive this bike for cruising around.
the clutch is too stiff to the point that i legit feel big pain on my palm, my wrists and back hurt. I know it kinda sounds like i am a whining person who complains but i find it difficult to believe that some people dont find it difficult.
please let me know. Does the experience get better in the future? Is the clutch thing normal? I know this is a race bike meant for circuits but come on. It shouldn’t be so difficult to take it for a 10km ride down the beach to cruise.
