I thought I would start a build thread on the modifications I have made to date as I'm a new member to .net. I bought the bike new from Honda in late 2011 so have spent most of the cold UK winter months fettling in the garage. Most of my modifications have been aesthetic with some performance mods to aid track riding with many more planned over the coming months before the weather breaks.
To date I have fitted the following:
- Akrapovic Titanium Exhaust
Sounds awesome and adds a few extra BHP with a build quality that is second to none.
- Akrapovic Carbon Front Mudguard, Rear Hugger, Exhaust Guard, Heel Guards and Side Panels.
The carbon fibre products from Akrapovic are probably the highest quality I have ever seen and are well worth the extra money. The weave is consistent and the detailing and fit is to the same standard as OE parts; just much lighter.
- ASV Brake/Clutch Levers
Good range of adjustability and give good feel and control.
- Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsas
A solid road and track tyre. Highly recommended.
- R&G Tail Tidy
- R&G Cotton Reels
- R&G Frame Inserts
R&G Racing is a well known company here in the UK and supplies many of the top race teams with crash protection. Having been unfortunate enough to test the crash protectors last year having low-sided an R6 at Snetterton they work exceptionally well. So much so I won't ride a bike without them. I'm yet to fit the main crash protectors and whilst this involves drilling the lower fairing its a sacrifice I'm willing to make.
Still to fit over the winter are the following:
- HRC Quick Action Throttle
- HRC Rear Reservoir Kit
- Watsen Design Flushmounts
I will endeavour to add more photos as soon as I find time.
