Finally pulled the trigger on a liter bike

So ive been considering a liter bike for a while now and was looking at Italian bikes but decided not to for a number of reasons. Instead I went with a crossplane R1. It's a 2009 with 2500 miles on it and its got a full hmf exhaust on it. It sounds wicked. I bring it home hopefully tomorrow. If not tomorrow then probably Monday or Tuesday. Heres a pic for now though at the dealer

The only thing I want to change as soon as I can is the seats. I don't have a problem with the comfort I just don't like the red. As for my cbr I haven't completely decided on keeping it or not yet. Ill probably figure that out after I ride the r1 for a while. Might turn it into a track bike if I keep it or just keep it for long rides and going to work to save gas. I will upload more pics and some videos when I get it home though.

more pics!






love the gear indicator and how it shows you how much throttle your using


This thing is incredible! Its insanely smooth and the sound is just plain awesome. I tried all 3 modes and standard is my favorite right now. A mode makes the bike a little to hyper for the street I think. I love the way the power comes on too. Ive only gotten into it probably a little more then 1/4 throttle and don't really feel the need to give it any more. It feels like its already pulling just as hard as the cbr at wot at that point. I'm probably gonna take a video of it tomorrow. Maybe some go pro videos too.

Nice! I was looking at CBR 1000rr too but I really wanted to stick with the under tail exhaust and I felt more comfortable on the R1 then I did on the CBR. Both seem to be great bikes though.

Great looking bike, I love the R1.
Definitely keep the red seats, looks so much better than the black IMO.

Awesome sick looking bike and one of my favorite color combinations.

I too like the colored seats though. It accents the bike nice and is an eye catcher... Well when you're not on it I guess. Lulz

I wanted a liter bike in the worst way, but my insurance was just going to be too high and I didn't want to pay that much. I basically would have been paying double my monthly payments for the the bike are, wc is ridiculous I think. I am a full coverage guy too always get I just in case. But hey maybe some day. But the r1 lookin sweet, hope u enjoy...

01PewterT/A, you should join R1-forum.com if you haven't already. That's what I consider my "home" forum, but I come here a lot because the track bike I'm building is a 600RR (plus this is just a cool forum.)

Definitely look into getting the ECU reflashed, its a very popular and highly recommended mod and not too pricey at all. The R1s (especially the crossplanes) are very restricted from the factory.

If you have an 01 T/A then we seem to share taste in vehicles...I have a black '00 WS6.

I was planning on joining that forum but haven't gotten around to it. Ill look into getting the ECU flashed. Don't think I need any more power right now though. Can't go wrong with a trans am. Ive had my 01 for a few years now but I'm gonna be getting rid of it soon. Bikes have taken away from my interest in cars and I barely drive it anymore. Sure has been an awesome car to own though. I hope to have a c6 Z06 someday though or something exotic.

Made a video after my ride today too (the helmet comment was one about one of my friends wanting to put on a helmet to muffle the sound lol)

No go pro video yet. Might make one tomorrow if the weathers nice. Don't know which bike ill take out tomorrow yet though either.

When you do, I use the same username on there. There's a ton of info regarding reflashing on there...trust me, you'll do it eventually (and you'll be glad you did!)

(Unless its already been done, which is a possibility to be aware of.)

She definitely sounds badass! So did you take her out today?

How would I tell if its already been flashed? And yea I took it out for a nice ride today. I probably won't get to take it out the rest of the week though because of rain. Ive ridden the CBR in the rain plenty of times I just don't think I'm used to the power enough yet to try riding in this rain without breaking the rear tire loose constantly.

CBR Time you should see if one of your local dealers does test rides if you don't already know. Even if your not in the market to buy one its still an awesome bike to experience.

I don't suppose there would be any obvious way to tell by riding it, without riding a stock one to compare. As far as I know, the only way to know is to hook it up to an interface to see where the settings are. But that would actually be a good question to pose to the forum...

When I had my 08 done, the tuner showed me visually how the bike was restricted from the factory and its interesting (for example, the throttle blades actually close back up to 80% over 10K RPM, apparently to cut noise.) It also cuts timing below 5K or so so keep the power down at low RPM. I haven't seen a stock map for an 09+ but I know they are even more restricted than the previous models.

After the flash, it was a whole new bike. It literally felt like it was trying to rip me off of it, especially up at high RPM.

I sure yours will that the three different modes, if your bike starts up in "A" mode then its been flashed, if it doesn't then it may not have been flashed but not guaranteed....

Having it flashed does make a huge difference and well worth doing....

It defaults to standard mode right now. It picks the front wheel up in 3rd and 4th gear in standard mode though when you really get into it though. I don't know if they will do that from the factory or if that's from a flashed ecu. Could be because I only weigh 130 pounds too. And when I say it picks the front wheel up I don't mean up to the balance point I just mean a few inches off the ground. I haven't gotten it into the high rpms yet besides that rev video so I wouldn't know if it feels like it loses power up top because of the throttle blades closing.
I made a thread about it on the R1 forum Ill see what they have to say.
Also I noticed one of the options on the flash is a speedometer correction. I went past a few speed signs yesterday with it and each time the speed on the sign was exactly what my speedo was reading so I think that could be a good sign its flashed.

But aren't you running stock gearing? The speedo correction is generally for when you start changing sprockets. (For example, I went -1 in front and it threw my speedo off probably 10% so I had my ECU flashed to correct it. I'm going -2/-2 on my new setup, and am having it flashed again for that combo.)

SBK Unlimited is running a special right now and they have really good feedback. That's who I went with for the new setup, which I should have by early next week.

Saw your thread, there's some very knowledgeable guys responding to it so I'm sure you'll get it figured out soon.

Yes the bike has stock gearing. My RR is about 6mph off on stock gearing so that's why I thought it could be a possible sign of being flashed. From what they said on the R1 Forum id say its not flashed though. Ive put a little over 500 miles on it so far though and I do think I will go for the flash. Ive gotten close to WOT in first and second now and I am starting to get used to it. Think Ill order some more goodies for it too along with the flash. I did see one thing I didn't understand while looking on one of the websites for flashing the ecu. It said you can disable the steering dampener? Why would someone want to do that?

I'm actually not sure, I haven't heard of that before. You should ask the tuner though. I'd guess it facilitates an upgraded one, because I don't know why anyone would want to just disable it.

Digging the new sig BTW!

So when you install an aftermarket steering damper like GPR or Ohlins, you disconnect the electronic damper. You can either flash the ECU to disable the damper, or plug in a resistor to avoid any service lights or issues.
