does anyone know the trick to bypassing the tip over sensor on a 2002 yamaha r1????

All I know is that you need to run a resistor between two wires. If you have it, you can cut the ring out, or take out the contacts.

i do have it but i couldnt get it to open. how would i find out the what ohms would need to bypass?

There should be three wires. measure between any two until you find one that is not closed or open. That is the amount of ohms you need. The sensor cannot be tripped, makes sure the ring is in the middle. (You can hear it moving around, so get it to were when you tip it slightly you can hear it creep, then set it down so it stays there.)

this stuff is tricky. so this sensor caint be replaced with a ressistor of the same ohms? the sensor seems that it dosent come apart should i cut it upen with a razor blade or what is the best way to split this open?

Why even bother bypassing it if you already have it? *Just mount it in the same orientation as on the bike.

No, that is what I am saying. You use a multimeter, to find resistance, then put it between those two wires. The number may also be placed on a MC forum out there. Look for r1 tip over bypass or something on google.
