Next I wanted to track the R1, so began focusing on track worthy upgrades. I purchased a full slider suite, front axle, rear adjuster blocks, no cut frame sliders and clutch cover sliders. I also purchased a set of Q2s since I'd shagged the S20s at 32psi in only about 1,000 miles. Next were Vortex V2 rearsets, stomp grip, a -1 front sprocket, seat cowl, Danmoto titanium 300mm GP style slip ons, a billet race gas cap and some 55w 6000k HIDs for street riding/increased visibility. They look nice with the projectors. I also got a decent anodized brake lever to replace the speed metal junk (I'd been using OEM). Rick at Cogent Dynamics also adjusted my stock suspension for me and did a great job at tweaking the settings/setting sag. I also removed stock stuff like reflectors, front sprocket cover, passenger pegs, etc. Next was a weekend at CMP, where the R1 did great. The GP slip ons knocked something like 7lbs off of the bike. The LVs were remarkably heavy.

Here's a video from this time, me following my friend on an RC on a twisty road.
