Next round of updates-

We've finally gotten some wheels fitted. It was down to these and CA5s in carbon fiber. Alloy won out! Marchesini Genesi M7RS -





Next was the Akrapovic Evo Kit II exhaust. We were going to do this or the Graves Link Full Exhaust, but got a package deal and couldn't pass it up!









Next was an add on radiator. We're really looking forward to testing this.



Lastly, we installed a set of LighTech chain adjusters. Awesome pieces!



We then shortened the Akras 1" to enhance sound and aesthetics a bit, but without chopping them completely.



Better pics soon!

Next round of updates!

OK, so with the LighTech chain adjusters, I'd lost the axle block sliders, which wasn't good. Fortunately LighTech offers a very nice set of delrin axle sliders for the front and rear, with aluminum inserts with some color options.





Installation was a breeze and the style is much sleeker than those they replaced. Very light as well.

While there, I opted for the
Superbike Lifters, in black, also offered by LighTech for their Chain Adjusters.



We use the correct stand for the lifters, but left the spools on for situations where the lifter stand may not be handy.

Next, we installed the Galespeed / Active remote brake adjuster. This will be very helpful for overcoming fade in longer races, or track sessions, especially at Road Atlanta. For the money, the kit is an excellent value. It must be cut to length, then squaged, using supplied materials.

It wasn't a direct fit for our RCS master cylinder, which utilizes a different adjuster post than some other Brembo master cylinders, where the knob is pressed instead of held in placed by a pin.



This was an easy remedy, we simply drilled a hole in the base of the post to match the portion of the adjuster that slides over. We then used a cotter pin to secure the assembly.





Next, we installed an APE Racing Manual Cam Chain Tensioner. This was a little trickier than I initially thought. The tension on the cam chain must be just right, or the chain will jump the teeth on cam sprockets.



For the first time in the history of the bike, there's no ticking at startup and it starts on the first try cold, which is a first.

Lastly, I replaced the OEM steel subframe bolts -



- with anodized aluminum units.





The new bolts were 20g lighter each. Not a bad way to drop some weight. Much more will be coming soon, including something you won't find anywhere else for the crossplane R1. Stay tuned!

your old pipes are absolutely perfect in every sense of obnoxious.
Also just had K&N Motorsports in Tulsa do the ECU Flash, QS, PC-V and a Full tune this past weekend. I put down 155.40 and 74ft-lbs of torque. and I must say the QS is a welcome addition.

really? K&N has done quite a few around the Tulsa area and he said mine was in the range he considers normal. My AFR looks great and my curve is smooth so I'm happy. (Graph is in my Center console of my truck, I'll scan it in and post it up later this week.)
But I also know his dyno reads 10HP lower than another dyno that is in town.

I'm planning a trip out that way at some point maybe I will swing by and see if you can massage a little more out of her for me.

One was done at Lee's Performance, the other at Carolina Motorsports' dyno. The thing about flashing is there's so much more to it than the fuel, there's a lot of power and smoothness to be had in the ignition mapping.

I was going to send it to you, but I hauled it down to Oklahoma to ride then the forecast turned to crap so I decided to get it tuned and all that jazz. had them flash it at the same time. may still send it out to you.
need to tighten my throttle cables. i feel like there is too much free play.

The R1 (and RSV4) is back after a weekend racing with WERA at Road Atlanta. They both achieved podiums, a great weekend in all. We were practicing at Barber a week prior.

Here are some action shots for you guys!

Barber:





Road Atlanta:
Both of the SBU Superbikes-

what pads are you running up front. mainly a street bike but I'm prepping it for Heartland park. stock pads seem to be pretty good. just don't want to get there and find out they suck at Track speeds.

The price on the RJL listed is where we are on those, they're less than anyone else out there. Unfortunately we're waiting on our next Vesrah shipment. It will include a couple of sets of 277, but won't be here for another week or so.

They're not bad, you'll do fine. It'll just make you appreciate the Vesrahs that much more when the time comes. The nice thing about the R1 is the huge pads and calipers fade slowly.
