their not crappy, just under power like Honda. Maybe the 07 R1 will have the power to stay with GSXR1K and the 10R.

Here's a nod for Honda's reliability.:icon_bigg

From the RC51 board I belong to...
Quote:
I love my RC51 Last night I turned 99,000 miles on her next week I should hit the 100k mark on my 03. I will pull over and take pics of the spedo and bike when I hit 100k.

All original motor only 1 issue with the charging system and that was fixed by warrantee.
Buy a honda they last!!!!

I called it.

In the other thread I told you to keep your motor until your bike suffers from the yami curse.

It has now happened.

I beat my R6 to death and it's held up fine... sounds like you had problems with your R1 that you may not have paid attention to.

Dude, to begin with you had problems with your 04 R1, someone just sold you a bad R1 with problems - you did'nt see it coming.

Were'nt you the guy that got ripped off by ExImports? Were'nt you the guy that had to get all the engine/oil stuff fixed, again and again?

Please go buy a GSXR1000 or ZX10r..get off the R1s, do us all Yammie guys a favor & switch companies. Yamaha's have class and they are unique in their quantity. Every other bike you see is a GSXR - there's a reason why you pay more in insurance for them, there's a reason why they get stolen more. Let the Yamaha have its class and jump over to some other brand.

Please.

Thank You.
