SOURCE: changing yzf r1 frame

you wont get one, you just have to figure it out as you go. start by stripping all your bodywork off and removing the engine, then the front forks rear wheel and wiring harness. then replace it all on your new frame. keep your work area clean and tidy, mark all electrical connections you have to undo with tape and write on it where they re-connect to.
good luck

Your calipers are getting hung up because they are over heating. you could have to much fluid in the system, and it is not letting the pistons back into the caliper. You can rebuild the calipers or try to drain and bleed your brakes over again it might work it might not

How do i adjust the suspension? or what do i do the bike is too high for me.


Generally you don't adjust suspension on motorcycles for the height of the rider. You make suspension adjustments for the weight of a rider by making it softer or firmer.
You can lower the front by moving forks up through the triple trees and the rear by using shorter shocks. But by doing this you are changing the steering geometry and suspension travel that has been designed for your bike.
If you already know how to ride a motorcycle you are better of working out a way to mount the bike with out lowering it. If you are learning how to ride, buy or borrow another bike until you have learnt the basics.
I have seen children racing motorcycles that use blocks or have people hold them up for the start.

Just bought a 2008 yamaha r1 and want pictures to show best way to lower it 1.5 inches


I'm 5'2", lowered the bike 1.5" all around, and added a 70 series tire to the front. I was worried the bike wasn't going to handle very well and I am a pretty new rider so I had a friend ride it (he's been riding for 10+ years) and he said it feel pretty good.

With this setting I can get my toes on the ground on both sides, enough to keep the bike balanced on just about any road. If you want to lower the bike I would HIGHLY recommend trying a smaller seat or at least combine it with a smaller drop (since you are an inch shorter maybe a seat and the 1.5" drop will work...all depends on how long your legs are).

Here is the rear link I used: 1?mpt=1048020842&adtype=1&size=1x1&type=3&campid=5336105921&toolid=10001 LINK

And the front I just lowered the triple tree down the forks. Don't forget that if you do lower it you'll need to either modify the kickstand or buy an adjustable one.

I have a 2002 Yamaha R1 that i recently put new forks on due to it being laid over. The frame as well as the new forks are straight but the front tire is hitting my headers.


front end needs to be adjusted...meaning you need to adjust the height of your bike from the adjusters located at your triple tree....if not have those forks inspected for defaults like leaking fluid....hope this was helpful.

Then the frame neck is bent or the upper and lower triple clamps are bent/twisted downward. You have more things bent than you realize.

My triple tree bearings nuts are not loose nor are my fork tube clamps. but i still feel like the fron wheel is tracking side to side. do you know what i mean? oh ya checked front axle its tight too.


are the forks leaking oil? is there air pressure in the forks? Start by draining the forks and putting in the correct ammount of the proper oil, and getting the air pressure right then see how she rides. Other things to check, front wheel bearings, worn triple tree bearings.
