best mods to up power on R1
If things were right in the world I'd be on my way to the dealer to tomorrow to buy the only new R1 he can get his hands on,does'nt have it yet,but the price on these things being what they are,$14900 Cdn,it looks as though I'm going to buy either the 03 he has or possibly a used one of the 00 or 01 vintage(Red/White & Black).Dealers don't seem to be willing to negotiate too much on these bikes as they are so rare,around here anyway.So I would like to know from those that have a 2000/01 model what the best mods are for this bike,cams,ignition module,pipe/slip on,etc that would bring the hp #'s up but not make the engine unreliable and hard to live with.
I'd also like to know what can be done with the 02/03 bikes as far as hp adding mods.I like the idea of having a fuel injected engine but am not sure how far a person can go with one and still have a decent street ride.Thanks.
