Here’s a super sweet 1998 R1. In the much desired white and red livery this bike has seen just 8k miles of road use. I bought it from the first owner a few years back. it was completely stock at the time. I decided to modify it with the idea of making a better handling, braking and powerful bike. Well I got this this one just right. Up front is a 2006 R1 front fork with a 25 ml Ohlins cartridge kit clamped in a 2006 triple clamp. I replaced the rear shock with a Ohlins remote adjustable TTX,. The front brakes have been upgraded to Brembo mono block radial calipers with custom Core stainless brakes lines all pulled together with a Brembo 19/29 radial master cylinder. I fitted up a beautiful set of magnesium Marchasini wheels in white for quick turn in and reduce unsprung weight. The motor has been enlightened with a thinner YEC head gasket, jetted stock carbs and a full titanium Arakapovic exhaust with a Carbon can. The stock body work is in really nice shape. It’s one of my favorite street bikes. almost 20 years old and still a real head turner. I have all the stock parts to return to original spec but for my taste this is just perfect.
