so stupid noob question, how do I get the factory quick shifter to actually work on my 18 R1? I've even asked my local Yamaha dealer and they looked at me like a deer in headlights when I asked them about it.

It should already be working. My 15 was right out of the box. Did you get your bike flashed? Maybe they disabled it by mistake.

I did get it flashed but I made sure it was not disabled, connector is plugged in firmly and I can toggle through from qs1 and 2 but nothing happens :/

I had a company I do a lot of business with powder coat them for me for $200. I also installed ceramic bearings and new tires all at the same time.
very nice. figured that's what i might have to end up doing, might find me a spare set just for that

yea it sucked to when I had mine done as it took 2 weeks to do so I couldn't ride in the best weather we've had here in a long time haha but when I got them back it made me enjoy riding that much more.

yeah the thought of that does suck. and i like my stock blue wheels enough to keep them. would be nice to have both color options. might just do a little bit of graphics for now

Installed Akra mid pipe but retained OEM end can. Loud but i wear earplugs during my rides so i cant tell if it’s obnoxious. Replaced shock spring with K-tech 9nm. Soon to install front fork springs but currently i have no front stand so that’ll be on hold. Many more mods to come.

Feel better bro. Sucks you're sick, it's awesome that they cam in.

Got a button you can wire in for your brake light?
I do. But I’ve gotta wire it which stinks because it’s gotta be from the handle bar. Just a good section of wire

I did some mods to my new R1 that I picked 3 weeks ago!

Here we go..

1. Evotech frame sliders
2. Evotech front and rear axel slider
3. GB racing engine covers
4. Evotech rear bobbins!
5. Also bought a Lacorsa paddock stand.
6. Some unbranded tail tidy from Ebay.

Very basic mods but loved every bit of it!

Long overdue:

New spark plugs (fixed my shaky idle and stutter in the low-rpm power delivery)

Core moto ss brake lines

Seat covers to cover up the old tattered ones

New headlights (had to solder in some new connectors. 1st time and it was a good learning experience)

Going to spend today cleaning her up as best I can.

I got the button pods all mounted up and working, now haunted by code 20 I have some other wire work to do. But less that it looks pretty sitting still in the garage anyways. New rubber ready to mount and basically fully prepped for race season 2022
