CBR900RRV "clean Up"
Ok gents, thought I'd start to introduce my Fireblade. I found a 1996 RRV with 1900 miles on the clock. The last owner put it in the garage in 2001 and shut the door, complete withhold fuel etc !!!
I decided to strip it down replace all fluids and upgrade the suspension. K Tech don't make complete fork internal kits for the 96-97, however I met a fantastic helpful Suspension guy who CAD designed some, took them to K Tech who liked the idea and built some for my bike.
So it now has full K Tech Fork internals, Springs and a gorgeous Nitron Race shock with High/Low speed Compression damping and remote preload adjuster.
I've fitted a complete 2001 VTR1000SP1 (RC51) front barkes, calipers and lever for better stopping.
Carbs were stripped, ultrasonic cleaned and now mint.
Exhaust was given a fresh coat of Plasticoat BBQ paint, a well known excellent paint used by all the 2 Stroke guys as it gives a lovely Satin black finish.
I've decided to stick with the way Mr Honda designed it (16" front wheel) and fitted a new set of Bridgestones S20's
