|Exhaust bracket and Quick Release brackets|
Its been a while since I updated the blog but thought I would share a couple of updates.
Firstly, the Factory Honda Akrapovic exhaust is finally on the bike. The downside is that I
was missing a bracket to fit to the factory Honda rearsets. I briefly started the bike and all
I can say is that the sound is something special. I will of course dyno the bike and get a proper map for the bike in due course.

I overlooked these brackets when I was getting my parts together. It seems that Honda Racing use these on their BSB, TT and endurance bikes alongside John McGuinness and Jackson Racing to name a few. These add further credibility to my bike build based on HRC and Honda Racing parts
There is some tweaking required but the exhaust is on and sounds great. The next job will be fitting the exhaust bracket.
|HRC Arai RX-7V|
My old Scorpion EXO helmet was getting past its best so opted to replace it. I was very tempted on a Marquez Shoei to suit the bike but opted for Arai RX-7V HRC version. I gambled on the size but found it a perfect fit so very pleased.
Besides this being a HRC lid it is my personal small Tribute to Nicky Hayden who rode Suzuka last year using this design. RIP Nicky
