I just sold my old bike for $10,000 and got a 1998 R1 for $7200 and pocketed the rest of the well needed money. So I did not get a 2002 just can’t afford it. I have never experienced the R1 before so I have some questions. Well anyway’s the bike runs at a high temperature when just sitting there, you can really feel it on the legs, but on the highway it’s fine. I was just wondering is this normal, the guy told me it is. He also said the R1 get’s it power at high RPM’s which my bike does, but are these really normal? I know that the bike was a salvage. First owner wrecked it, second owner fixed it and sold it to me. Also is their anyway I can get a owner’s manual for it? I might have some more question later, but that’s it for now.
