A further update so far for the swingarm

Here is a test fitting of the kit for the stock wheel and spindle. The kit has a sleeve which allows the caliper bracket to be held in place.

Here are a couple of pics of the quick release kit. This is on the wrong side but has a clever locking piece that keeps this piece attached to the Swingarm.

Here is the racket with its cover. This will be held together using titanium m6 x 10 race spec bolts.

This is what can be seen inside. Very clever and simple.

Here is the finished article of the Honda branded GBRacing covers. These were 3d printed in white and professionally painted to suit the covers. They are a great match to the Honda originals. The positive side is that I no have spares in case of s spill.

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.

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.

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…
