    R1 regulator location

    Last year I put in an R1 voltage regulator and stuck it under the passenger seat. The regulator went bad and was distroying batteries. I replaced it today and after a short ride I took the seat off and the regulator was already way too hot to handle. Got to find a better place to put it but...

    R1 rims on Gen1..?

    I have a local, well sorta local Vmax guru that can have the earlier FZR1000 rear machined and re-hubbed to fit my bike. What I was wondering is if I could use the R1 rims. Like up to an '03 ? Maybe some of you have already done this, which is why I'm poking around on here to see what the...

    2001 Yamaha R1 issue

    I have a buddy who owns a 2001 R1 that will crank but not start when the engine is warm. Bike runs fine when warm with no stuttering, lack of power, etc., just won't re-start. Once the bike cools down, it starts fine. This is a carbureted bike. I would think coils, fuel pump (it has one), or...

    Rode Report: Yamaha Bolt/ R1

    One of the local dealers had an open demo day last weekend, I had nothing better to do, so I went out to ride someone else's brand new stuff for free. I was somewhat interested in the new Bolt (the answer to the Sportster), but they give you 3 rides, so I also tried the R1 and went for another...

    R1 Forks, keep the R1 switch controls?

    Has anybody swapped in a USD front end, and used the switch controls from the front end they used? I used a set of 2007 R1 forks, and was contemplating using the same switch controls from the R1. Turn signals, on/off, etc. The only thing I see of an issue, is having to remount the fuel reserve...
