HRC Kit Gearbox

I have managed to source a HRC P1 Gearbox for the bike. This will replace the standard one which in racing circles is known to have a fragile 3rd gear. The main difference between stock and the HRC item is build quality and this configuration is close ratio.

Here is a comparison in gears (Stock / HRC):

Main shaft - 14T /14T
Gear countershaft 1 - 32T /32T
Gear Mainshaft 2 - 18T / 17T
Gear Countershaft 2 - 32T / 33T
Gear Mainshaft 3 Mainshaft 4 - 18T /20T
Gear Countershaft 3  - 33T / 30T
Gear Countershaft 4 - 32T / 30T
Gear Countershaft 5-  34T / 31T
Gear Mainshaft 5 - 28T / 23T
Gear Mainshaft 6 - 29T / 22T
Gear Countershaft 6 -  33T / 27T

Here are the Nova Racing Specifications an example:

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…
