Having now rode the bike at the weekend, it definitely feels much better with the correct top yoke allowing the front ride height to be restored and not being so much on it's nose. It just feels so much more planted.





The changes to the intake, exhaust and pciii map have also had a significant improvement, pulling harder and cleaner to the new 14k peak, and it's gained an awesome induction roar too.





So, to summarise, from when I started the main part of this project, the bike now handles better, goes better, stops better and looks better


Definitely job done

Love the look going on here! Good job on the upgrades, and nice track pictures. Really brings a vintage honda look to a modern bike.

The guy I bought them from was not too far from my build/weight, so he gave me some settings that he had been using.
I absolutely admire your talent. Beautiful accomplishments here!!

That paint scheme is really swaying me to the patriotic paint side too

Thanks for the kind words and praise


I must admit that I'm very proud of my acheivements on this bike. It has been my first major project, and with only a couple of exceptions all the work has been done by myself, which is an even greater feat when you understand that I don't have a garage and all the work is done 'al fresco'


There's a part of me that is sad due to the bike being finished, as for the most part it has been a great learning experience and a fun way to spend some spare time, but, on the flip side, I'm also glad that it's all finished as I can sit back and enjoy what I have done, my wallet is also glad it's over too, I never realised you could spend so much money on so realitively little.

I love the bike, awesome going through this thread and seeing the impressive build!

My only nit-pick is the "CBR RR", just wish they were the legit Honda fonts used! Like I said small detail but eh! Awesome bike regardless.

Thumbs up

What a sweet build, love the paint scheme !

Only thing I would change is the incorrect (and rusty :) engine bolt, visible in the header install.

And maybe tint the bottom of the screen to conceal the dash and overflow, unless you're keeping it visible for inspection?

CBR Build

Fantastic build with some nice track photos. There is always something slightly inspiring about seeing a Honda in HRC factory colours.

No real updates from me, the bike is still the same with the exception of an oil change.


I've been thinking of upgrading the brake calipers, but that's really more for cosmetic reasons.



I'm back on it tomorrow at Brands Hatch, and it's the first time I've ridden it since my last trackday at Donington last August.

Well, having rode Brands Hatch on Monday I can confirm that this bike still rocks....it's just awesome.


Heres me on a couple of sessions during the day......


Session 5


Pic from that session




Session 7




The really good thing about the bike is that it gets better the harder it's ridden

Time to update....


After experiencing (and ignoring) high running temperatures for the last few years, I noticed that this year things have been getting worse quicker.

Having a good poke around seems to indicate that the head gasket is failing despite no oil/water problems, just running hot and losing water and not to mention air bubbles appearing in the overflow bottle when the engine is revved.


So I bit the bullet and decided that the engine needs to come out, I had already taken off the fairings, the exhaust, most of the cooling system and the fuel tank, then it was onto unknown territory


First off, the ecu, the secondary fuel injectors and fuel rail



The onto the airbox



After that was the main fuel injectors and throttle bodies



Throttle bodies off...what next ?



Oh so many wires



Thermostat housing off along with the rest of the coolant hoses



Loom tucked out of harms way....where does it all go ?



Time to get busy with the Dremel......special Honda tool required



5 mins later



New Honda CBR600RR Superleggera



It was encouraging that it all went straight forward. Next job is to get the cylinder head off and hopefully find the cause of the issues. I'm also thinking that whist it is like this I should do the valve clearances and anything that is on the service schedule.

I'm also thinking of stripping the rest of the bike down and painting the frame and making the whole bike mint.


During this period of rest for the bike (will be into next year before trackdays again) there are other jobs to do to....brake fluid needs changing, might as well change the pads too...infact might get some newer/cleaner calipers too. Might even see if my 'budget' can extend to a slipper clutch too.

Today saw the stripdown of the top end of the engine



1 complete engine



Plugs, coils and leads removed, then off with the cam cover



Timing aligned to the correct marks



Camshaft mounting brackets removed



Camshafts out



Buckets and shims removed



Bucket/shim holder that doubles up as an ice cube tray



Head off and this is the view of the top of the block




Underside of the head, with the gasket still in place



Gasket placed onto block




To be honest it's not the picture that I had imagined. I wanted to see the gasket showing clear signs of failing so I could easily identify the problem area, then get a new gasket and rebuild. As it stands now, I'm not entirely sure that the gasket is the cause of the water problems. 2nd opinions have now to be sought.

Wow good work man.. I was thinking that there doesn't seem to be any obvious issues with the gasket from the pic you've posted.
Good luck with the fault finding Wizz.
