2009 CBR1000RR Weight Reduction - Honda Style

When Honda revised the 2010 fireblade, they announced that they installed a heavier flywheel. They used other lighter components to ensure that the overall weight did not increase. One of these updates was the large radiator fan (See A in graphic). It changed to part number PFKL2036200 for the 2010 and 2011 models. This no doubt will be the same for the new 2012 model.

Well done to Casey Stoner!

Well done to Casey winning at Valencia after a nail biting photo finish. Casey won the championship at Philip Island. Well done to Dovi for third place. Thanks to Dovi for his commitment and musts say its a shame that the HRC Repsol Team let him go. Good luck Dovi but don't be too good on the Yamahas!

"As an experienced ebay buyer, you will be aweare that the Post and Packing costs are exactly that.

The costs associated with packing the item (material, labour, etc) amounted to £3.84

All postage and packing costs were clearly identified on the auction. If you were not happy with this then you should have not bid. (incidentally, the item you purchased was a complete bargin, as the retail at well over 100 gbp new)

If you are not happy with the purchase, please return it and I will refund all monies due"

The box was an old Wickes box with and so therefore costs were unjustified.
