2004 R1

Is it true that the 2004 R1 has a lot of problems?

Thanks

The reason I asked was because I;ve heard from 2 different people that they said the 2005 R1 is the same as the 2004 just without all the problems?

I have over 14K on mine and it's never had a single issue!

This bike is solid.

Yamaha has issued a bulletin, in effect recalling all the 2004 model year for throttle position sensor problems that had some units shutting off after warmed up. I had the recall done although mine had never had a problem. All in all... there have been no problems with mine at all.
