Woolich Racing ECU Flash for the CBR1000RR


I have decided to try flashing the ECU on my stock fireblade ECU. 

I have a HRC ECU but at the moment gives me limited options. It will nit work on the existing bike due to HISS. I could bypass this by rewiring the loom to provide power to the fuel pump but would still lose the lights, indicators and fans. 

Keen to up the potential of the bike, the Woolich flash allows mapping like the HRC ecu but on a stock ECU instead. It also allows me to disable redundant features that have plugs installed and therefore adds weight to the bike. This also enables me to consider removing the Power commander and the Secondary Fuel Module.

The added bonus for me is that you can get both a bench loom and an on the bike loom. This gives me flexibility to tuning the bike anywhere.

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.
