Some General updates (Cylinder head and Dash)

I finally got around to contacting JHS Racing regarding the cylinder head I bought a while back.
The advised me that it had Carillo rods and Kent regrinded cams.
Having contacted JHS Racing, the gave some more information. It appears it was one of five tuned by them and featured HRC Cams and Wiseco pistons. Sadly they could not provide me with any further information.
I took the opportunity to remove the stock studs and replace them with titanium versions which having looked at the old ones were starting to see corrosion on the ends.
I also popped in the chain guide as well just for good measure.
While I was working on things, I updated the HM Dash to version 7M. I am not sure what the difference is but like to keep things up to date.

2017 fairing bolts compatible with HRC kit 2008-2016

One of the omissions of the HRC manual for 08-16 was fairing bolts. 

The HRC Clock bracket was built with M6 holes to hold on fairings compaired to others who opted for DZUS.

The 2017/2018 HRC manual has corrected this and lists p/n 90106-NF4-770 on the clock bracket these are slotted and posidrive style screws rather than DZUS.

These will therefore fit the 08-16 fireblades.

Gasket set completed

I have been after the last two head gaskets for the bike and finally got my hands on them.

These will complement the ported cylinder head I have stored away and the HRC Cams. I have also sourced a variety of titanium parts to complement the head too.

Homemade HRC usb cable for the CBR1000RR

I stumbled across this site as I was doing my research,

Whilst I have the genuine HRC usb cable, they have a hefty price tag making the use of a HRC ecu an expensive option to program.

This site dscribes how to use a VAG OBD cable with a diy plug to connect to the diagnostic port of the bike.

Take a look at the site here

Woolich Racing failure at first hurdle

As many know, I have a bit of an obsession with all thing Honda and HRC related.

I have all the kit to equip the bike with an ECU (Loom, ECU, usb plug and software) but was interested in exploring a bit more about the Woolich racing ecu flash.

The Woolich racing ecu flash sounds a great idea in principle. I have a PCV and SFM from Power Commander which add weight and draw volts from the bike (which I want to reduce so I can use the kit generator). The Woolich Racing flash allows access to built in maps like the PCV and the HRC ecu so sounds a great solution to me in road setup.

I managed to get the whole setup used from someone parting out their bike so I got it quite cheap compared to full price and its been sat around for a while.

Well I decided to try the setup and before I could even get going, plugged the micro USB plug in. As I did this, the cable fell out. I found the soldered USB connector on the V3 Log box had come off the mother board.

I wss surprised at this and with the power o…

Boot protectors and started the bike up (Turn up the sound :-) )

I managed to spend some tome working on the bike. I finally got around to fitting the boot protectors. They complememt the colour scheme nicely.

I also completed the tool chest which of course had to be orange!

Honda Racing Chain hook

I finally got around to copying the original chain hook used by Honda Racing on their BSB and TT bikes.

Its a simple idea but dead handy.

HRC Clock Bracket

It has been a quiet month or so but finally got my hands on a genuine kit clock bracket.

I have also sourced the last two engine remaining gaskets so that I can consider what setup I use.

I still have a few bits to source such as the kit inner inlet valve springs but closer to complete.
