Well finally got my New R1.
Buddy picked it up from the Dealer in Minnesota and met me in St. Louis since I am currently in Georgia.

We met at a Hotel. Of course I wasn't letting it sleep outside in St. Louis.

And then the Exhaust got installed. Exup removed and ECU Flashed by Nick Marino from: XPlane R1 Custom Tuning (he lived near the hotel so I didn't have to deal with shipping)

After it was back together Sunday morning I loaded into my truck and headed back towards Georgia.

Then the weather got chilly so I didn't ride it for a couple Days. Tuesday I finally rode it about 30 miles after class.


And I must say I absolutely am in Love. it's like riding my 750 with 50 extra horse. :woot:
I'm planning to re-work the exhaust and I'm not sure exactly how I want to do it just yet. But I'm not super happy with where the Can ended up on the M4 mid.
I'll post more as I go along.

The Cat delete is a Stainless M4. They ceramic coated them black which I don't really Care fur. I'd rather have that Raw stainless look.

The Can is the Same Ladybird that was on my 750.
so I only have 200 bucks that I paid for the mid lightly used into the exhaust. I like that I didn't spend a ton but the Look kills me. SOunds great. Just didn't end up where I wanted it. :frown2:

I may end up spending money on the New Graves set up as the Can has a much better angle. BUT everybody runs the Graves set up.

Exhaust ordered. I went with the Hindle 3/4 system for now.
Carbon muffler, with Carbon tip.

I may switch to their Full system when they actually get an ETA for delivery.

Where do you live again? I'm in Augusta GA for a while and I know you are somewhere down south.

I left my Race Bodywork at home and don't really want to track it in Street trim.

Always loved that paint scheme but the lack of side fairing makes it look odd. Don't care for that exhaust at all but hey, it wasn't my money so as long as you're happy, I'm happy!:woot:

I shall get a pic of the new exhaust tomorrow at some point. The Hindle set up look great.

Yea Jamie, I put that exhaust on and was like NOPE. this has to go. :frown2:

bsess: I hate that Can shape wise but for the Euro guys it's the only full system that makes power AND meets their noise restrictions.

2016 R1 got new exhaust. Very happy with the Hindle 3/4 system. Sounds great and fits well.


I also bought a carbon front Fender that had a blemish on the lower legs so I had my painter (DCPaintworx) do a color match to cover the blemish and give the front end a little more color. This batch of paint wasn't an exact match so he's working that out on Monday and redoing it but I'm excited with how it looks.
