  1. hi looking at buying an 05 r1 any thing i should look 4 and what the general opinion on this model

  2. Make sure second gear hasn't been shagged by doing wheelies. :)

    Best way to check is pop a wheelie in second gear. :p
  3. Check the head steam berings... to do that pop a wheelie in second gear while holding your fingers b/w the head the tripple clamp... If it chopes your fingers off they are stuffed...
