I had a 2000 R1 about 8 years ago and I am thinking of getting a 2004/2006 model. Is the riding position similar? I had a back operation 14 years ago but was ok with the 2000 model.

I had a 2000 model and it was a bit aggressive for me. In 01 I had my back fused L3L4
i bought a 17R1M and put some Helibar clip ons and it’s pretty manageable . Stock was more aggressive to me than my old 2000. I’d say each model change got a little more aggressive for track /racing.

'02/'03 is the most comfortable for me. 🙂
