Congrats. Let's see some pics

Flash the ecu and do a gearing change, then you will def get to experience what the R1 was meant to do. :)
The gearing change was unreal. The best mod for the money other braided steel brake lines. I rode my 06 for 7 years and thought the stock gearing was perfect. After reading a countless amount of threads on how people loved the gearing change I made the change. Feels like a different bike!!

OP: Nice write up, enjoy the bike!!!

What was the gearing change? 1- in the front and 2+ in the back?

Cheers :) Never rode a crossplane, might take one out for a spin next season. I'm a big fan of a generic L4 sound myself, just drinking it in after 2 years on a V2 :boobies
