I thought the factory production colours for the R1 were standard world over. Red/Black, Blue/White, White/Red and Black. So does it mean every country has a different colour scheeme?

Its usually different in the US. As is with most things in the US, different from the rest of the world.

The manual you must have got with the bike would usually carry details on running in the bike. Go with those blindly.

dude until and unless you go overly extreme on the bike, you really can not harm the current generation engines.
I suggest you rip the bike as much as you can, because its gonna open up real nice later on.

Dont really worry about the speed and rpms and kms.

Ride it the way you feel like, but see to it that you do it safely. don't push your luck with the bike, as the 10r is one of the most unforgiving bikes around. one small error will result in serious consequences.
get comfortable with the size of the bike, if its your first one. if you have a decent experience with sportsbikes, still i will suggest get comfortable with the power delivery and handling of the particular bike. and then let it loose. though know your limit first before you start exploring your bike's limits.

and the most important thing. always wear proper riding gear. if not the fancy leather pants and boots, but still see to it that you always wear a helmet even for small rides under 5 kms. anything beyond that wear a pair of gloves and a full protection jacket along with the helmet.

Ride safe and have fun.

Awsome bike Anku (eyes proper now). Killer looks and relief to the feet. This baby is still unregisterd, so is it with a dealer or imported by someone. Any idea on the damage (to the wallet not the bike)?
I think it would be practical for the streets being an auto. No headaches of the frequent gear changes in traffic. How does this baby fair on the roads?.

wow almost 20 days and no more posts well here is a sbk though not in india its abroad . i have posted detailed pics in the other sbk site.

i have a question regarding megaphone exhausts. they are very cheap when compared to other exhausts and sounds good too. but is it worth it. somebody told me it reduces the torque now thats very important im not concerned with top end. i heard yoshi and didnt like at all. 2 brothers is nice , micron also was bad. akropovic and m4 was real nice. i heard another one called beet which was amazing.

what are u suggestions guys. and if i put on a slip on do i need a power commander??? i just want a decent slipon. really bored of this stock exhaust
