Alright guys and gals, here it is. I've had the bike for a year now, so I figured it was time to start pouring money into it. :duh

Thanks R1lover I think it's the nicest of the group. I think it'll look sweet with the painted front fairings...

looks great man!! :thumbup how do you like the akra full system??
I've only had the chance to ride twice since I installed it (stupid snow and cold up here), but I'm loving it so far. I couldn't believe the weight difference between the Ak and stock, it was unreal. The sound is awesome, and since I installed the power commander and uploaded the map R1Lover gave me, the power is sick! Oh, and the looks don't hurt either... :thumbup

Excuse my ignorance... -1 in the front?
The front sprocket on the 07-08 is 17 teeth... going to a 16 tooth front sprocket makes a big difference on the power on the lower end and mid range of the bike while not loosing much top end either.

It was one of the best mods I did all for about 25 bucks. :)

Cool, thanks for the tip R1L, any suggestions on brands?

afam is what I went with. :)

but you can get a stock one from a yami dealer too for an older R1 that came with a 16 tooth. :)
Oh dude, I don't know if I NEED any more power down low, I rode 600s until last year so this is a pretty huge jump already... :squid

sweet bike bro:rock
Thanks!:thumbup

I'm trying to decide between Gilles VCR rearsets or Galfer wave rotors (front and rear). Which would be the best choice if I'm only doing one right now?
