HRC Parts update

The end of the BSB season heralds the change of sponsors and bikes.

This is great news for owners who want race kit. In my case, I have been collecting a few parts left behind when teams move from Honda to another manufacturer.

In my case, I have picked up a few parts:

HRC Swingarm linkages, HRC Clutch kits, HRC Speed sensor, bracket and loom and gaskets.

My Bike now has the following HRC Goodies on the bike.

HRC Quick action throttle
HRC Steering damper brackets
HRC Breather kit
HRC Rear shock plates
HRC Swingarm (Soon to be fitted)
HRC oiler cooler bolt (copied in 7075)
HRC Alloy tank 
HRC Generator cover (Soon to be fitted)
HRC Oil Cap

These will be complemented with an Sigma Clutch from the Samsung Honda Spares kit too.

Awesome eagle eye headlights

Well I doubt I will ever be brave enough to buy a conversion like this but saw these and the think they look amazing. I find that a great deal of headlight conversion often look tacky and dread it when I hear of angel or demon eyes. These however seem tasteful and do seem to suit the lines of the bike.

New rear suspension link (AKA Dog Bone)

As a fan of making the CBR1000RR that little bit better, I stumbled across a shock linkage from Lee's Cycles.
The Honda CBR1000RR comes with a standard Shock linkage of 175mm. HRC provide these in different lengths (170mm-172mm) to change the handling of the bike.
The Lee's cycles link is 170mm long and is based on the HRC version at a fraction of the cost. 
HRC List 4 different links listed for the blade:
1) 52470-MFL-R10 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION R1 (Standard) 2) 52470-NLR-A20 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION (MEL) 166.2mm 3) 52470-NLR-A30 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION (P2) 178.8mm 4) 52470-NLR-A40 CONN ROD ASSY., CUSHION (P4) 170mm
In Brief, MEL is the most aggressive, P4 is less aggressive, P2 is quite flat and the unlisted is offers the characteristics of the P2 but adjusts ride height.
The idea in general gives better rear grip on the rear and raises the seat somewhat to transfer some weight to the front of the bike. 
Besides the obvious advantages to the handling 5mm means less material and a few…
