Just finished with installing/fabrication of putting an R1 motor kit into a 2008 R6 raven (not the S model). WOW looks like factory works stuff. Has factory superbike radiator, with R7 parts, titanium exhaust, magnesium rims, this is my favorite hybrid to date! When i bought Tom Kipps OWO1(no.16) i put a THUNDERACE into it, fun but didnt handle like any of the 600s now. From there it was the canadien 1993 YZF750SP(canadien) using a YZF1000 motor(it was a beautiful bike, handled pretty good but heavy and 1/4 mile times werent as good as my 2000 GSXR750). In 1991 i purchased 2 1989 GSXR750RR(canadien) and installed a 1216cc and a 1340cc. 2 very fun quarter milers. Then an 05 GSXR600 with a 02 GSXR1000 motor(low 10s @ 140mph plus, i could never keep the front wheel down on any of the suzukis, even past the 1/8th mark wheel in the air). Even did a ZX750RR with a 900cc(not proud of this one, PIGS). First time using an R1 motor was for the '00 YZF R7(OWO2). Sweet but still not exactly what i was looking for (seriously the R7 is as big as the R1). Now ive got the bike i have been wanting for so long. The R6 in my opinion, is the best handling bike out there and with R1 power is amazing. Selling parts to 1990 OWO1, 1993 YZF750SP and 1999 OWO2 if anybody is looking for hard to find parts. Just got back from drag strip [email protected] not slammed stock swingarm just how i ride it on the road no gimmicks! Cant keep wheel down even after 1/8th mile, so im going to a 17 tooth front sprocket, its always worked on my other bikes.
