I've been thinking the same too Ry regarding putting it away but it's a little early yet no?? We could have another month or so...

Looking forward to your updates though.

Normally I would ride until at least the end of October or until I see the first evidence of road salt being used and then the bike would go away. This year I have resided to the fact that the CBR has had to go away slightly earlier. It's not necessarily a bad thing as the winter modifications can begin...

Winter

I picked this collection of cleaning products up today in preparation for this weekendís deep clean and polish.



Before the bike is put away I tend to remove the fairings and give everything a good clean before reassembling and polishing so itís spotless to work on over the off-season. Itís also a good opportunity to check everything over; slightly obsessive perhaps but the CBR is going to be off the road for at least three to four months so in my opinion its worth it. That and the fact I find it easier to work on a clean and sorted bike.

The Gain of your dyno chart it pretty impressive. Have you thought about using heat wrapping tape on your airbox to keep it colder? I heard you will gain alot more power lowend side if you do that.

I'm really pleased with the performance gain but more so with the smoothness of the throttle response. The only real way to get any more of a noticeable power increase is to fit a full system. I may fit one eventually but for the time being I'm happy with how the fuelling and power is and would rather spend the money elsewhere.

Thanks for the positive comment. It's taken a year to get the CBR to where it is now and there is still a bit more planned especially over this winter.

Honda Racing Carbon Tank Pad - CBR600RR Modification Thread

I picked this up yesterday to protect the paintwork on my tank. As its a Honda Racing accessory it matches the other carbon parts perfectly. I will post up a picture once I've affixed it to the tank.

Tyreart Marker

After a few weeks away I've managed to get back into the garage and finally add some detailing to my Bridgestone S20 tyres. I think it looks pretty good and importantly it doesn't look obtrusive in any way. With hindsight if I were to do this again I would do it when both the front and rear wheels are off to make it easier and less time consuming.

Honda Racing Carbon Tank Pad

Today has been fairly productive and after giving the CBR a polish I have fitted my new tank pad. Whilst it matches all the other carbon parts well I've mainly fitted it to protect the paint more than anything else.

Tyreart Marker

On closer inspection of this years MotoGP bikes they not only have the Bridgestone name embellished in white on the tyre wall but also the Battlax logo marked in red as well. Whilst I wait for some performance parts I have on order to arrive I thought I would add the extra detailing on the tyres to pass the time. Hopefully it turns out ok and I will post up pictures once finished.

Renthal Sprockets - CBR600RR Modification Thread

These arrived in the post today to replace those already on the bike:



After a dozen or so trackdays this year the chain and sprockets have been subjected to a fair bit of abuse and its time to replace with a fresh set for next season. I've remained with the stock set-up (16T Front/41T Rear) as I'm content with the gearing as it works for me on both the road and track. If this was a track only bike I would have a good selection of sprockets to suit different circuits. I've also ordered a Tsubaki chain which should arrive soon so I can get everything fitted over the next couple of weeks.

Tsubaki chains are used fairly extensively in BSB and the superstock classes here in the UK and they are pretty good and very reliable. I hope to finish the extra Bridgestone tyre detailing this weekend when I get a bit of free time. I will make sure I post up some pictures when completed.

After making a start on the red Battlax detailing today it just didn't look right at all. The white Bridgestone name looks really good but given the large size of the Battlax logo it appeared a tad overpowering. Fortunately the red Tyreart marker paint is easy to remove with a bit of Muc-Off and light scrubbing.

Honda Racing Wheel Stripes - CBR600RR Modification Thread

After a trip to my local Honda dealer today I found these reduced in the bargain bucket so I thought I would give them a go.



I've been debating on putting wheel stripes on the CBR for months. This is a red set complete with Honda Racing decals so hopefully once fitted they will subtly match the OEM paint scheme and Bridgestone tyre detailing.

Hey Ry.....

you mention throttle response in your dyno runs above.

are you referring to the "lurch" or abrupt transition from closed to open throttle?

particularly unpleasant in lower 1/2 of rpm range?

how did your tuner minimize this awful feature of our cbr's?

any info gratefully received!

My tuner spent just over 5 hours doing the mapping for my CBR. He's extremely experienced and used to do the mapping for the Kawasaki WSBK team with PB Motorsport so I'm pretty sure he applied some of the tricks of the trade to get it to where it is now. I know what you mean about the transition between open and closed throttle and the abruptness though. When he had finished the smoothness of the throttle response was so much better and the snatchiness at lower revs had ceased. He did mention that he did a lot of work with the Air-Fuel ratio as that seemed to be where most of the issues for my CBR arose as it was running so lean. The next time I'm at my Dyno Centre I will have a chat with him and see what info I can prise out of him and let you know.

Thank you Ry for answering.

yes, the "snatchiness" is a major flaw in these bikes.....really annoying!

and I would be immensely thankful to get even a hint as to how your tuner minimised it....

Honda Racing Wheel Stripes

I spent all yesterday afternoon fitting the wheel stripes. I thoroughly cleaned the rims with degreaser and wiped everything down with an alcohol wipe prior to affixing the stripes. After gently heating the wheel rims to ensure good adhesion it was then just a case of taking my time individually applying each segment. I then finished off by applying the Honda Racing decals and here is the finished result:





I think they look really striking and match the OEM HRC paint scheme well. All in all I'm happy with the result.
