How come you have an 00 gearbox in your R1? Is there an advantage to it? I was just curious. By the way, I love the paint scheme on your bike, it roxors!!! :rock Catch you later.

I dont know for sure, but I heard the 00 gears were a bit better and not as wheelie prone as the 99... the not as wheelie prone thing makes me wonder why he's got that too!:lol

Well, thing is that the previous owner rode the bike pretty hard and it failed on him so he had to switch the gearbox. He probably took the '00 gearbox because the '98 and '99 gearbox has the problem with loosing 2nd (comes from factory.. but got fixed for the '00 r1) if you (ab)use the bike harder than normal.

Thanks! Will get a lot more media (pictures/videos) from it as soon as the season starts.. or if I'm going to Spain on Thursday next week. :yesnod

But ReyndoggYZF.... why is not as wheelie prone?
