STUFF TO KNOW
EXHAUST SYSTEMS There are plenty to choose from, but consider this: full systems can rob the R1 of midrange, and simply fitting a slip-on will allow you to retain the EXUP valve. Originality sells...
SUSPENSION Freshen up the springy bits, as well as adding ride height adjustment, with a Nitron NTR3 rear shock (which also adds high and low-speed comp). Or a company like MCT can re-valve and re-spring the original for a fraction of the cost of a new shock.
WEIGHT-SHEDDING WHEELS Yes, they’ll cost in the region of £1600, but saving several kilos of unsprung weight with the fitment of forged alloy – of carbon – wheels is the way to go. If you’ve the cash.
