I saw an 05 R1 with the hotbodies hidden exhaust kit with integrated blinkers. It looked pretty hot.

Just wanted to see what you guys though.:fork

I have their undertail on my 04...only to hide a couple bottles of nitrous. Also Heard of the melting issues. I think it looks ok...wish I could have gone with a sleeker tail...but didn't have that choice.

I am going to have to go with NAY. I think it looks ugly. No offence. Just get a nice aftermarket pipe.

Nay on the Hotbodies piece.

For that kind of money, you can get some nice pipes with some classy bling to them.

Hotbodies looks cheap and the paint is not really that great to begin with.

well i have to say alot of people i know have hotbodies kits on their bikes (GSXR's, R1's, and a Ninja)and the paint match up is spot on... the thing i didnt really like was how heavy the pipes were...my graves pipes and y pipe weigh less together than just one singl hotbodis can:fact

so add up the weight of both hotbodies cans and the stock y-pipe compared to the Graves Titanium system and you would be amazed...the graves can be easily lifted up with a pinky:fact

i think the hotbodies looks awesome and would have kept it if I hadn't found a killer deal on a pair of GYT-Rs, which I always wanted.

ever since the graves introduced the conical endcaps I remember telling myself if I ever have a 04 and newer r1 I will have that exhaust, especially if the bike is blue...

something I didnt like about the hotbodies kit was the way the tail light was mounted, well actually the whole way the tail felt flimsy after it was installed...there is ways of making it sturdier tho...
