Question for all you R1 owners

What's your top speed? How far can you go on atank of gas? Do you have a power comander, does it work good? And how do you like it over all.

Top Speed: 157mph (Done on a track not the Hwy.)
Fuel Light comes on at about 120 miles.
No Power Commander since my 01 is carburated. Have helped a few guys with there PC3's and they seem to work great.
I love my R1 and wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. (Except for maybe an 03 R1.)

mine is a Y2K and I lu- hu-hu-huv it. My gonads started to tighten up at about 142mph-plus I was to busy staring at the road to look at the speedo to often. then I ran out of asphalt and to bring it down.

My bike reminds me of the woman of my dreams--nice and full up front, tapering to a narrow midsection and a wide, tight rear end. OH, and always ready to be climbed on top of, opened up and ridden hard.

thomasp,
I got my 03 R1 back in January. This bike rocks. The looks are
just unreal. I'm not a speed demond, so I've only had it up to
maybe 130 or so. If you just cruise the bike does good on gas.
I'd say the low to mid 40 mpg. My fuel light comes on around
160 or so miles. I just put on a Scorpion highmount exhaust
on it. The sound is great, not super loud. Just that sweet mellow
tone throughout the power curve. On the Scorpion the PC3 is
not required. It runs great without it. If you go with a full system
then the PC3 is a must. Over all I'm soooo in love with my R1.
You just have to have good throttle control over the bike. The
front tire likes to leave the ground in first gear, but you can
control it. Nice and easy to flick in the curves, nibble and light.

Safety first!!! Then smoke his Ass!!!

I hit an indicated 182 on my '02 between Yuma and Gila Bend, AZ. Pretty much the middle of nowhere. I have a Devil High-Mount Slip-on, PC III, K & N airfilter and homemade airbox modification. Bike runs awesome. Pulls like a mutha.... I also went down 1 tooth in the front. Just about to 28,000 miles now...

Sweet bike, but that second picture is unreal! It looks like someone painted it. Cudos to the photographer.


(Looks like one of those little Remote Control bike)

Here are a few more
