A few more parts for the build list

Ported Cylinder head

HRC Radiatior

I have been distract things of late but getting the bike back on track.

I finally got round to fitting the Akrapovic exhaust after I finally sourced the bracket to attach to the Honda Racing rearsets.

I have also picked up a  R&G boot protector kit which I hope to fit in the new yeat and promises to keep the frame unharmed.

I have also got a seat pad from Hifibre , a great product for my race fairings.

Back to the pics, I picked up a used cylinder head. I have reliably informed that it was ported by JHS so keeping it for a time when I can put together with the HRC cams. I have also got a .55 HRC Cylinder head gasket to tweak the engine further.

I have picked up a HRC Radiator for the fireblade. This complements the HRC Oil cooler that I already have.

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.
