    2008 Yamaha R1

    I'm looking around to buy a 07-08 R1 and Kim Britton has one in red and white. Can anyone confirm this model came with red seats and front gaurd or were they available as an OZ delivery with the black seats and gaurd as the one at KB's has. I have only found red, which raises a few questions about its history, I live down south so have not viewed the bike yet.
    Also if you know of a good one for sale let me know.

    Cheers.

    Yeah thats the bike, if the change was for cosmetic reasons only I'm OK cause it looks better than the red.

    The red seats are the continuation of the stripe up the side. Black sort of breaks it up.

    Black looks alright coz the original red doesn't appear to colour match the fairing stripe.... is that just the photo showing different tone?

    The shade of red on the seats rarely, if ever matches the paint work... worse, it doesn't bode well in the Australian sun and fades.

    Bought a black 07 private, one owner 21kms, Yoshi pipes, PC5 and its a mint ride. Mornington Rd to Collie, on to the Quinny through the fog for a beer, Nanga and home was a good blast.

    Make sure you get the valve stems inspected they are known to wear away to nothing on 07/08 R1 which results in a dropped valve.
