Akrapovic factory Honda BSB TT ENDURANCE exhaust

Akrapovic Honda BSB TT Exhaust
TT Endurance exhaust
I missed the chance to buy Michael RUTTERS old exhaust when Bathams switched to BMW. Well a system came up with 6 end cans. I won't dwell on what happened but ended up with three cans. I got 1 can that is in good usable condition, one can has been damaged and tweaked for a db killer and a remaining one that is usable but damage to the titanium rivet band and carbon fibre. These cans were not sold to the general public so very exclusive.

My plan is to restore them to their former condition as best i can. 

These can's were seen last year on the Urban Tiger BSB bike and the Honda Endurance team.

Three Akrapovic end cans
Here is a pic of the cans. The one without the badge is the one I have tackled first to assess the work involved. I removed the badge as it was hiding burnt adhesive which has polished up a treat. These exhausts are uber rare so looking to get them usable and ready for a set of headers one day. Two will need new carbon tips and Titanium bands to get them to a good standard. Even after all this, they were cheaper than a used road Akrapovic exhaust can.

The good end can
Here is a pic of the good. It needs a little bit of TLC but in good usable condition. It has a carbon fibre bracket labelled TAP1. It originally had black marks were the carbon touched and blue marks which have been removed. I would be more than happy to pop this on my bike now.

Each end can has 2 x Titanium straps approx 345mm with 10mm overlap and 15mm thick. They are secured by 6 stainless steel rivets. Each rivet is spaced slightly over 50mm apart. 

The part number for these are N825/L

The end cap is printed with AP5 228711 and the packaging says V rozeta AP5 D60 L with SAP Code: 114220 and Code No V-VZOREC

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…

Favourite Fireblade designs

Its always interesting to see other colour schemes for the fireblade from the usual Repsol design. 
Here are a few of my favourite colour schemes together.
