I purchased the bike in October of '07 and trailered it back to my shop thinking I was going to do some minor mods; wheels, exhaust, rearsets, etc...then I got to really liking the 240 rearends and emailed McCoys about a swingarm and wheel deal; Bart called me personally to get something set-up. I seen a pic of a swingarm from C & S and asked Bart if they could build me one of those; he wasn't sure but he'd see what they would do; few days go by and he said they would; I gave the green light for the 300 single sided from C & S and the rest is a much longer story...

Yes I know I took the "sport" out of sportbike; Dad is already impressed:crash but this is just me:

-more pics added to page 2, page 4 and 5; RAIN

2008 R1
-C & S 300mm single sided swingarm-chromed
-Cyko racing Chrome Cykotic with black inserts
-Metzler 300 rear tire
-DynoJet PCIII
-Graves Full SS exhaust with carbon cans-fully polished
-Graves frame sliders
-Graves adjustable rearsets-chromed
-Graves smog plates
-St Machine Levers; Grips; Bar Ends and Riser Covers
-Clear alternatives smoked taillight
-Polished and chromed gas cap
-Chromed passenger pegs
-Puig windscreen
-Angel eyes
-Greggs customs sidemarkers
-Speedlink lowering link
-Debadged
I think that's it:crash if I forgot anything I'll go back and add it! Will be updating as soon as my inserts get painted for the wheels and I add little things to the bike:thumbup

I owe a big thank you to Bart and Mike at McCoy Motorsports for all my endless phone calls you guys are the best;

I also owe a big thank you to Carlos Avelar of House of Finishes for all the chroming and polishing wouldn't have made it look half as good with out ya bro and working out the deal with Taige at Graves Motorsports for the one of a kind exhaust;

Big thanks to Pat and Stan at ST machine for the great accessories and excellent service; Jason at C & S; Larry at Cyko wheels for the sickest wheels out there unspeakable quality and customer service; Taige at Graves Motorsports; and Frank at Clear Alternatives and everyone for their support and everyone doubting me that I would finish it:crash

I for one am impressed! Im in the market for a 240 tire kit but it seem that the 04-06 model has to be custom made for some reason. Anywho, great job. All of your time, money and effort went to a good cause in my book!!!

Bike looks sweet dog!!

Am doing somthing close to it but am going with the 240 instead of the 300. swingarm is coming from C&S and am getting it threw McCoys aswell. Order my stuff over 2 months ago now but still waiting on the swingarm to be completed which is taking alot longer that I was told at the start. Did they take long with your swingarm also?
