If it has been sitting up I would pull the plugs and see what they look like. Probably rusted all to . Wire brush and WD-40 or go buy some new ones. I would start there.

There is no fuel petcock on that bike and if you don't know how to get to the plugs then you may as well take it to a shop. I have seen the plugs rust up on several bikes that sit for long periods. Whatever....

Your bike do not look that bad. I would help you but I am in the process of restoring a Busa. If I finish in the next week, I'll shot you a pm. When looking for parts, remember e-bay is your friend.

Yeah I was hoping maybe after I get it fixed up painted and running good I'd get rid of it for a busa... but the 99-00 busa. most of the problems with the r1 though I think is mostly cosmetics which I bought everything already.. waiting on someone to get back to me on some wheels off r1-forum and it will be pretty strait looks wise.... getting it running is another story... i just have to do a major tune-up and go from there.
