Tilty's 07 CBR600RR

Hi all,

I bought my 07 CBR600RR last August after years on Suzuki GSX-R SRADs (600 and 750). Even though I really enjoyed the SRADs I've always been a Honda fan.

This is how she looked like when I picked her up; Quite standard but with the Akrapovic slip-on, dark double bubble and brand new Pilot Power 3's.

The CBR was quite a revelation in terms of handling and rideability as I had the chance to go to our local track twice for some knee down fun, but I found the front end to be quite stiff and harsh, especially on the road so I decide to have to forks re-sprung for my weight during the winter. Also had the fork legs polished and new seals and bushing fitted while on it.

Some more mods when in during the wintertime;

Gilles Tooling Factor X rearsets (aluminium as the wife wouldn't notice the difference between the Gilles and the OEM ), Gilles Tooling gear shaft support, 520 conversion: -1 front and +1 rear (15/42), Renthal grips, Zero Gravity double bubble, Stomp Grip, Chinese Ebay rear seat cowl, braided brake lines (HEL and BTR), HRC rear brake res delete kit with Tygon tubing, a SpeedoHealer and some stickers.

The next mods will be to fit my Supercorsa SP's and install the new Brembo brake pads whenever they arrive. Long term plans is to install a MJS midpipe, PC V, block off plates and a proper dyno run.

Thanks mate The change of gearing frisked her up a bit but not dramatically in any ways. In hindsight I probably should have gone +2 on the rear (43t)

Summary of the season

Well, it didn't really turn out to be quite the summer I had hoped for. A lot of **** weather and a lot to do at work meant no time to ride/play with the bike Still had some nice rides and really nice sessions at our local track and the change in tyres really increased my confidence on the track riding.

Before the summer I did quite some mods to the bike including:

- Fork service and re-build (polishing fork legs, new linear springs for my weight, new seals and oil)
- Sprocket change (Renthal) and 520-conversion (-1, +1)
- Gilles shift holder
- Rethal grips
- Gilles Factor X rear sets
- Zero Gravity double bubble screen (clear)
- Rizoma pro-guard brake lever guard
- E-Bay Chinese Rear seat cowl
- HRC rear brake reservoir kit c/w Tygon tubing
- New front wheel bearings
- New Brembo brake pads for the front calipers
- Carbon fiber exhaust shield
- Pirelli Supercorsa SP V2 tyres
- R&G shark fin
- Stomp Grips
- Decals (HRC, Showa and Akrapovic)
- Braided brake lines (front and rear)

This is how she sits now:


Planned mods for the winter will be:

- Power Commander V (bought 2nd hand and expected to arrive in the coming days)
- MJS cat delete pipe (awaiting delivery any day)
- New rear shock (order placed on a Wilbers 643 QS. Expected to arrive in 4 weeks time)
- K&N filter (already in hand)
- Quick shifter (assessing alternatives (HealTech, HM, Cordona and Translogic) so inputs on the matter is more than welcomed )

I'll try to keep the tread a bit more updated with the progress on the bike over the winter. Inputs and advises are more than welcomed

Looks like a really nice and tidy bike, lovely to find someone who's doing things to adapt the bike to them and to improve their riding rather than just to add shiny parts!

Good work mate, keep it coming!

First mods ongoing

The bike is now put in my parents garage for the winter. However that is several hours drive from where I live and it means that I can only work on the bike when I come visiting. This weekend I brought my little girl and went visiting. My parents got the time to spend with their grand child and I got to spend some time in the garage with the bike

I didn't have too much time to spend on the bike but I managed to pull the fairings off and give everything a good thorough clean.

I also got to install the Power Commander V which I bought second hand. The installation was quite easy but connecting the TPS was a bitch due to how a previous owner had pulled the wiring bracket on the left hand side of the bike. At least this gave me an excuse to rectify it I also installed the O2 sensor eliminator and my K&N air filter.




I was intended to also install the block-off plates which I have, and set-up the Power Commander, but I didn't have any time for it. I will set up the Power Commander with a generic map for the Akrapovic slip-on and the K&N air filter but the block-off plates will have to wait for the time being. Maybe they will go on when (or if) I get a quick shifter fitted. I got the MJS cat-delete pipe I ordered, put I plan to put it on either if I get the bike mapped, or get an AutoTune on a later stage.

The next opportunity to work on the bike will probably not be until mid December I will by then hopefully received my new rear shock, the Wilbers 643 QS which I really look forward to try out. I will also try to learn the Power Commander software and load the correct map to the bike.

Awesome! I just ordered some headers and PCV for my bike... did you have to remove the O2 sensor? I'm guessing you probably do, I didn't even think of that! Also did you have to do the block off plates?

edit: NEVERMIND I guess only Cali bikes have the O2 sensor :P

Well, my bike is an Euro-spec bike so like the California bikes, my bike also have a O2 sensor to the exhaust. I have indeed installed the O2 sensor Eliminator plug. I have not installed the block-off plates as they don't give me any benefit for my current set-up and are a bit of a hassle to install. I will however put them on if I get the bike dyno'ed or get an AutoTune module. My plan for the moment is to run the bike with a generic map from Dynojet to complement the Akrapovic slip-on, K&N air filter and O2 Eliminator --> http://www.powercommander.com/downloads/16-001/maps/M16-001-508.pvm

Wilbers rear shock installation

New vs. old


Installed complete. Was very easy to installed since I could use the ridged rear sets to support the bike. Also cleaned out and re-greased the suspension linkage.

Cleaned out the rear brake caliper and fitted new Brembo Sintred pads, which I have had laying around since last summer.

Rear wheel service

Cleaned out the sprocket carrier and fitted new bearings.




Also fitted the Honda Racing wheel strip kit. Opted to fit the Honda Racing logo, which I regret as the logo had grey background and not the black which I thought. Didn't dear to attempt removal in fear of damaging the red rim tape. Only fitted the logo on one side of the wheel. The old rim tape was a pain in the ass to remove and to get the rim cleaned properly.

TSR rear axel nut cup

I've promised myself I will never spend money on bling-parts, but when I came across a genuine TSR rear axel nut cup, it was too cool to pass. Have to admit it looks kind of good!

I finished off a busy day in the garage with playing around with the Power Commander V. As I bought it secondhand I was hoping it would contain a suitable map for a full system, which might accommodate the MJS cat delete pipe I have laying (put not yet fitted). No such luck as I was disappointed to find that the PCV only contained a map for the Two-Bros slip-on



There will be some time until I have the chance to work on the bike again, but that will give me time to prepare for the final mods of the winter. I am planning to fit a quick shifter, and I am debating which unit to go by. I am currently leaning towards the Translogic Intellishift iS4 kit, but we shall see...

I will also have to give the front wheel the same treatment as the rear (clean, remove old rim tape and install the Honda Racing strips, possible new bearings), service the front calipers, change oil, coolant and brake fluid, and also a new front tyre and we are ready for the spring.

Thumbs up sweet ride you've got there

brother, you're gonna love that rear shock among all your other goodies... & good on you getting something to assist w/improving rideablity. especially for fine throttle adjustments ie mid corner maintenance throttle

look forward to seeing how it looks once you've got everything sorted. i still think their 07/08 bikes are the best they've made to date & find it ironic they've gone to nearly aftermarket wheels ie 10 spoke wheels similar to marchesinis

thanks for sharing


race/ride support 2004 & beyond

"fall down seven times, get up eight"



" can't stop stupid sir, i can only slow it down....."

Slow progress on the bike...

Been a while since the last update, a lot of things has happen but not on the bike unfortunately. I'll be moving back to my home town in two weeks time and starting in a new job. The last couple of months have been quite hectic on my current job and the new job looks equally busy, add the process of moving and I am left a bit behind schedule of finishing the bike to the summer season.

During the Easter I managed to squeeze in a couple of hours in the garage to change the front wheel bearings, clean out the front calipers, fit R&G frame plugs, fit a carbon swingarm protector and a Heal Tech gear indicator. The remaining things to do before the bike is ready for the season is to change oil & filter, new brake fluid, do the PAIR removal and install the Healtech Quickshifter. Hopefully all done by mid May, but we shall see

Carbon swingarm protector:


New front wheel bearings, clean calipers and new Honda Racing rim tape:


Healtech GI Pro gear indicator fitted:


R&G frame plugs:


More to follow...
