Hi guys.
I've just done my first trackday on my 99 R1 and after 25,000 miles the rear shock is past its best! :dundun:

Ive found a rear shock from a smashed up 2007 R1 and was wondering will it bolt straight on to my 99 bike?
Cheers for your help

Welcome to the board and the addiction... dont think that 07 will fit your 99. Can you get your 99 shock rebuilt?

I'm pretty sure that won't work. Look into getting it rebuilt. Or better yet try to find an Ohlins cheap. Ebay or something. You can find them every once in a while.

Oh welcome to the board. Lots of helpful people here.

Thanks for the link!
I did the trackday at Oulton Park this Saturday with Focused events. Ended up one of the quickest in the novice group, overtaking people with my yellow bib on lol :2bitchsla

Here's some pics of my baby. On track is where the bike really comes alive, i used michelin pilot power 2CT tyres and even though it was only 2 degrees outside on saturday they warmed up and gripped a treat, highly recommended
anyway some pics:












And a Youtube clip or 2

Never been round oulton on a bike (loads of times in a car), cascades would scare the hell out of me!! I ought to do it though as i only live half an hour or so away.

NICE bike by the way.

Cascades was my favourite corner, after the flat out kink to the right just before you really have to get on the anchors to make it around, didn't brake enough one time and had to take the escape road to the right :p

rebuilding the chock aint worth the money. u can get a new shock for 50$
u can use the 02-03 R1 shock with no problem.(thats what i got on mine) or upgrade to ohlins...

Very nice!

I am looking for a similar mounting bracket for the exhaust as you have.
What pipe is that?
