CBR1000RR clutch lever perch bolt

It has been a lot of trial and error with the clutch lever. I started off with FP Racing levers and switched to a clutch perch bolt to a Mettec Titanium perch bolt, I switched to a Brembo style clutch lever which looked great as it suited the brake lever. The only draw back was that it fouled the clocks. Sadly I sold the Mettec perch bolt and they no longer make them.

I switched back to a stock clutch perch but with the Brembo lever and looked for another Titanium clutch perch bolt. I asked a few times for Titan Classics to make a fireblade clutch perch bolt and they have. The good thing is that it cost £9.00 which is a lot cheaper than the Mettec ones.

Its an exact copy but in Titanium a perfect replacement.

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…
