For performance you might want to get a power commander and a new exhaust to start. That seems to give a bit more power.

You have an R1. Seriously, what more performance do you need?

Upgrade your skills for better results from the bike. There are plenty of classes and other ways to improve skill.

Start with a slip, an air filter, and reflashing your ecu. O and also as mentioned a track day just for giggles.

Ecu-Unleashed remap..
Then full system if affordable, air filter, if track: suspension, better oil, coolant, brake fluid.

Well if top speed is your only agenda, read this:
http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=179311

Then I'd recommend going +1/-2 or something similar. Say goodbye to a good amount of low end though...

To lower your RPM's you will need much more road and taller gearing. It will be an absolute on the low end. 8k isnt all that much. You need to ignore the rpm's.

for serious power gains. you need the following

1) LEDs.... lots of them
2) lower the bike about 3 inches....yunno, for stability when you hit 210mph on hwy 45
3) stickers... preferably monster energy stickers and skeletons

seriously though. do a track day. better rider is the best performance gain you'll ever see.

If you don't care about improving your riding abilities or how the bike rides, then I would start with:

1. A PC V, or Bazzaz fi, or have the ECU reflashed. You can get that from Whoops or House of Paint (HoP). About $250.

2. A FULL Graves titanium exhaust system, which would cut the weight of the bike substantially and improve performance. http://www.gravesport.com/Graves-Mot...2009-2010.html About $2500.

3. If all that's not enough, ship the bike to Graves and have them build a superbike engine using Graves Works and YEC components. About $10,000.

Yeah, that's what I'd do.
