Just curious as to when you guys placed your orders. I got my money down on the 5th of November. My dealer was only getting one in silver so I'm glad I went when I did. I would think it would be very difficult to get one now.

P.J.

im sure there getting more than 1 silver. a guy tryed to say that same shit me me when i went to another place. they say that because they want you to put your money down on one. sad, but true, so i went somewhere else that was honest. or it could be that the people that work there are taking a few of them, they ride too. :confused: jerks.

I don't know, I would be inclined to believe that possibly the dealership was getting more than one in silver but I'm not sure. I didn't really mind paying in advance though. When something special like a fuel injected ass kicking machine such as the 02 R1 comes along it pays to be there early!!!:rock :rock :rock

I have heard that the fuel injection on the new R1 is really throttle body injection. Was explained to me that it is similar toa carb, but with jets and float bowl replaced with 2 injectors. Not the same as one injector per cylinder in the intake runner. Anyone have clarifiaction on that one?
:p

I ordered mine in October. I went to two dealers. The first was getting one blue and one red. The blue was sold. I went to another dealer. They were getting 10, but all they sell is Yamaha. That makes a difference on their allocation. They were getting 4 in silver so I bought one. A friend of mine who went to the NYC show with me called that same dealer yesterday to buy one and they are all sold. The salesman doubted whether they would be getting more after the first 10. The '02 R1 hasn't even hit the market yet and no magazines have done a write up on it yet. Just wait until the rest of the world finds out about it.

I'd say if you can find one at list price now, buy it. The FZ-1 was selling far higher than list by late spring last year. That is if you could find one. Obviously, there will be people who back out on their deposits so put your name on a list anyway. That's what my friend is doing and he will probably get one.

I put my money down the end of October. I ordered mine from a dealer in Chicago I paid 9150. They said they have 150 on order. This shop deals in large volume on everything. They had a 180 GSXR 1000 last year and sold them all before the end of the season.

Hey SmokeEater.. is that you? you look kinda pale. Is that because you're scared of the R1 underneath you? :D just kidding! :p

I think that those "reflex" are going to be good.. they will limit the number of accidents. They shine up like lights in the photo.

I was a little freaked because I just watched some idiot drop an R6 on the floor. You can see the skinny armed, pinhead in the picture trying to lift it up.

Those reflectors are the first thing that I take off. The next is cutting that butt ugly mud flap off.

All bow to the almighty Dremel.

I cant stop watching it over and over!!

PS. shopped in a 996 for it in November. Any advice on different riding styles? Have owned loads of Jap 4's before but never one so powerful or as light.

Welcome aboard Flystar :hellobye :butt

Well. the R1 is VERY sensitive and powerful. If you haven't own something near as powerful I suggest you to sell the bike. LOL :lol just kidding. Just be careful when accelerating hard in 1st.. the front rather goes skywards than going fast. :)

Almost the same in 2nd.

Hey SmokeEater,

How'd that thing feel? It looks awesome...Could you get a test ride? NC dealers will let you after you fill out the paperwork, but they can't seem to get a bike. The MotoRags are sucking butt getting a ride and info out. You must be 6'2" or taller I hope, or the bike is getting really tiny. :mad:

I'm going to have to see the thing in person, but it is my next bike, unless some dribble comes out about next years being ram-air. :not

All in all awesome to ride one, and the new bodywork is really growing on me...:crash

:butt Later Dudes!

I saw the bike and said "ooooooooo" and then I sat on it and went "aaahhhhhh". I'm not too sure what they changed with the ergos, but it felt perfect to me. I thought the R1 was good before, but this just felt a little better. The clipons seemed a little better. The seat looks thin but is actually very comfortable.

By the way, I didn't hate the US stock turnsignals. I think the Euro ones look better but ours are ok.
