CBR600RRA Build Thread





I purchased the CBR brand new from Honda in late 2011 in traditional HRC colours. The bike arrived with no more than the pre-delivery inspection miles on the clock in completely standard trim with no aftermarket parts or modifications fitted. Since then the CBR has had a raft of different modifications made to it; some being simply aesthetic and others for outright performance on track. The intent has always been to build the CBR to UK superstock specification for both road and track use.

In its current form and specification the CBR is pretty much race ready and all the major performance parts have now been added. Any future additions will likely only be aesthetic or replacements for consumables like tyres and brake pads. The whole project has taken quite a bit of time, effort and expense to progress this far but the result has certainly been worth it.

Road:









Track:









To navigate through the many posts simply click on a modification listed below to access the relevant page within the build thread. Whilst I've made every effort to document the majority of modifications listed there is also a wealth of other information and pictures on how the CBR has evolved. Hopefully, this thread will prove useful and interesting to some and I will continue to update the thread in the future.

Awesome colours, If it was mine, I'd lose the large metal exhaust link pipe heatshield on the RH side, you can't see the nice blueing of the Ti Akrapovic, also it diverts the eye away from the carbon outer heatshield.

Oh and btw, you'll have no heat problems removing this heatshield.

Definitely cleans up the rear of the bike.
I thought the same thing initially then noticed the giant brown catalytic convertor by the lower fairing. I ended up using high temp paint and painted the shield black and then re-installed it. I think it looks a lot better.

Keep up the good work!

Did the same with mine. I'll take the heat shield off when I get a full exhaust.

looks great, not a fan of the stomp grips but obviously the practicality outweighs the asthetics in this instance

where the heck did you get the akrapovic carbon fiber parts? I can't find them anywhere. I'm at the point I'm just going to call Akrapovic directly.

I was quite fortunate to pick them up last year from the UK distributor. They still have some parts available (http://www.performanceparts-ltd.com/) but I was informed by them that Akrapovic were no longer producing carbon parts from 2012 onwards. Best advice: if you see them buy them. There are also a few on eBay at the moment supplied by another UK parts distributor who are very reputable and highly recommended.

Suspension Setup - CBR600RR-A Modification Thread

Just finished probably the most important modification to my CBR600RR: suspension setup. Spent half of today at Snetterton circuit and with the help of 100% Suspension (http://www.100pcsuspension.co.uk/home.html) have got my suspension dialled in and firmed up. The bike now handles and brakes brilliantly. Snetterton provides a good mix of high and low speed corners and two very fast straights. Ideal if you want to find a good base setting.

The suspension now feels much more planted and settled, especially when braking hard into corners. This combined with a grippy set of Pirellis has meant the bike is even more predictable than it was previously and more compliant to rider input.

The figures below give the standard settings, front and rear, that my Honda came delivered with and those that I have worked on today to provide a sound base setting to work from for future track riding.

Front:

Standard OEM

Sag-mm 24
Comp High C/T -
Low T 2
Rebound T 2

Base Setting

Sag-mm 24
Comp High C/T -
Low T 1 ¾
Rebound T 1 ¼

Rear:

Standard OEM

Sag-mm 8/9
Comp High C/T -
Low C 24
Rebound T 2 ¼

Base Setting

Sag-mm 8/9
Comp High C/T -
Low C 20
Rebound T 1 ¾

C = Clicks out from fully in
T = Turns out from fully in
