I have a 43 rear tooth vortex sprocket 1 down in front
Leo Vince full exhaust
Scotts steering damper
Ignition advance
Frame sliders
Undertail
flush turn signals
Clip ons, woodcraft i think.


Should I put a rear tire hugger on there?
or put some chrome rear sets?
O yeah and does my front end look lower to anyone I cant tell if it is lowered.
or just throw some stickers on it and be done with it, I know the paint looks crappy on the bootom of it but it is jus dirt

whats the deal with the rims? they look like they are 1/2 orange? and it is lowered in the front 1.5" i'de say. The shocks are suppose to sit semi flush with the triple trees... whatever amount they stick through the top is how much the front is lowered.

Why has the front been lowered?surely on a sports bike you need ground clearance.As for what next the only thing that looks off to me is the length of the silencer.Can it be cut down?I have a 300mm can and I think it looks alot better.

The usual reason to lower the front is to speed up turn in.10mm maximum though and yours looks more like 30-40mm.Unless the previous owner was a shortarse but then you would lower the rear as well.
Mod your bike how you want too.Not everyone will like it but thats not your problem.As for the guys that are just plain rude..*uck em!!

you should lift the front back up.:fact
Agreed, but not all the way. Leave it lowered about 5 or 6 mm as it's an 00-01 which liked being lowered a little.

As for the ass-clown above, don't worry about him.

You could use a few stickers to break up all the blue imho, but thats about it. She is an R1 after all. :rock

Like everyone else said, I'd go with the best gear you (or your parents) can afford first, then work on the suspension set-up, THEN work on modding the bike...:fact

I'd just throw on some stickers, maybe shorten up the pipe, and enjoy what you got.
