I have an 02 R1 (blue and white) and my friend has an 03 R1 (liquid silver). When the bikes are sitting side by side mine is quite noticeably higher.

He sat on mine last night and he said it was definitely bigger. My bike stays at his house, so its been an ongoing debate.

Both of us have Metzler M1s, stock suspension setups and exhausts. The whole bike looks higher on my side.

Does anyone know of a difference in the 02s and 03s?

I didn't think there was a size difference between the 2. Maybe I'm wrong though. Are they parked/leaned the same way??? Maybe his floor is seriuosly uneven or something:crash

He's 180 I'm 160.

Mine has less miles (2K) than his does (3K). I dont know what the hell it is.

Just standing them up side by side mine is taller. I think its the flux capacitor.

Its like the tail sticks up more on mine.

you're both like match sticks. Go eat some burgers and then get back on your R1s.

Or maybe yo moma sat on your bike!

They are the same, but sometimes shit happens.

When I picked up my new truck I had them take off those gay looking 4x4 stickers. Other than the 6 lug wheels you couldn't tell it from a 2 wheel drive.

Not true the 4x4 version of the truck should sit higher than the 2 wheeled drive version. Hey maybe that's it. Your R1 must be 4 wheeled, I mean 2 wheel drive :crash :no
