My New 2008 R1 Edit: Before and After Pics

Actually I got it on Nov. 12th, it came with Diablo Corsa's. I Previously had a 2006 Honda CBR600RR that got stolen. Love the bike, handles so smooth.

Pictures aren't that great sorry!

Minor Mods: Pazzo Levers, Proton turn signals, A & R Race Baffle, temporary home made Fender Eliminator (2 plastic zip ties) and slip resistant passenger seat.

Bought some cushion foam shelf liner, stretched and stapled it over the seat. I know, sounds weird but the R1's rear is at a greater angle then my old CBR so my girl would slide into me too much. So she'd start to get tired of holding herself up against the gas tank.

Now she doesn't slide as much, she can sit more upright and hold me without sliding and it makes for a more comfortable ride for the both of us. However, you need to change the liner every couple of weeks as it starts to wear down.

Hi all,

its been a long time since posting here.. divorce still hanging on and had to sell my R1 for lawyer fees..

hopefully sorted in the next two months and I am looking at the 08 R1, but in sexy retro red and white (just like my first 98 R1).

can i have your comments on it.. is it as good as I want it to be?

Andy

Andy, since your over in the UK you are lucky enough to be able to purchase the Haga street replica! If you dont go for that bike you are nuts! Guys here in the states would kill for the oppurtunity to walk into a dealer and drive off with that bike!! Go for it, and post PLENTY of pics of it because everyone will be drooling over it!

Yup, get either of the two, or black of course. My preference order:

1. Fiat rep
2. Black
3. Haga rep

I've already replaced the stock signals and repacked the pipes with A and R race baffle. Added Black and Gold Pazzo levers. Also got rid of the huge plastic rear fender of course. Love the bike, handles so smooth.

I'll take some pics later on today after work. They sound pretty nice, someone has video of some a and r baffles on an 07 R1 on youtube. Nope, just a single sheet of packing for each pipe.
