Heard a rumour from a friend that some R1's destined for Europe but were actually sent to North America by mistake.These R1's had restrictors in the intake or airbox as to reduce the horsepower.Any heard this or is it bull??

Not sure, but I remember hearing about a cap on rear wheel horsepower (130 or 150). Maybe this is way it had some restrictions. :confused: I could be wrong. :)

I thought it felt slow.. Humm.. I have had the airbox off and apart on this bike I saw nothing but dirt and an air filter. Believe it or not, even with the mundo monos, there was not one drop of oil in it either.

I would still like to dyno the thing, the problem is the closest shop is a straight, boring 2 hour ride. My ass meter says roughly 140hp anyway and that's good enough for now. Well not really, I'll take more.
