Please excuse thread title but I had to trick you into this thread somehow... With my obsession for 98-01 R1s at its peak, I'm building a 2nd carb R1 and need all feedback & guidance. I've had my 2000 R1 since new it was my first bike bought in cash with my money earned from my job:) I just rebuilt it to current photo status in the start of 2007. I'm starting to gather parts for the next edition here's where you come in should I buy a fully fuctional bike or piece bits together. This is what I have so far.....
  1. ohlins shock
  2. 04-06 oem forks with ohlins cartridge kit
  3. pvm 10Y al wheels
  4. hindle header & mid pipe
This is what I would buy next and would be replacing on the complete bike if purchased
  1. sharkskinz R7 upper & lower
  2. ladybird pipe
  3. aftermarket stay
  4. aftermarket triple
  5. graves clip-ons
  6. 02-03 boxed swingarm
  7. aftermarket solotail
  8. sato rearsets
  9. ram air box
  10. brembo 19x18 MC

Before the respray it was also Yamaha Blue.Should have it completed and running tomorrow so will get some better pics.In the U.K one of the race clubs runs a Pre-Injection class and that is where it gets ridden.It's pretty much dominated by R1's.
Makes 178 rwhp.

Were the 04 forks a strait match up....I have been looking to put 02 forks on my 01- should I be looking for 04s instead?

Slick bike btw...Carbs for life!

Awesome bike Rod, it'll only get better :flex:

BLU! You're slacking! This thread title has everything to grab your attention and yet I bet you're still hugging your swingarm... Or, #gasp# are you actually installing it?!?! :sneaky

It's a braced and slightly extended stock arm with quick release fittings.Made over here by a company called Spondon engineering.Down pipe by Micron.there serpent headers and Are very good for top end but not too great for midrange.
Theres another thread running on here titled Winter headwork project started by Marcaztls where weve been boring each other to death about anything carbed.It's worth finding.
Glad you liked my bike,I was worried about changing from the Blue but I think it works.

Oh, and it's Headwork Winter Project :2bitchsla

It's not just for carbs but you guys with 'em seem to have nothing but trouble :)sing:) setting them up, especially where ramair's concerned recently.

Pop along there Rod if you're interested in anything to do with your motor :thumbup

I understand modding is a disease and 99.9% of us suffer from it big time, but your 2000 looks amazing as right now :fact.
