Re: 2008 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade Photos Thread

Alright Stu.......how's it going mate ??

Popped in to my delaer this morning to get some paddock stand bobbins. On the shelf sitting there.....an R&G tail tidy !!

So I had to buy it and give myself a project for one night in the week with my buddy.

I had a chat to one of the techs, who was fitting one to another Blade funnily enough, and he said to be careful with the tail section as the clips are quite flimsy. He said it's a bit of a pain to fit, but a good piece of kit. I told him a number of you guys have fitted them without problem so I would have a go myself. The dealer charges one and a half hours labour to fit it, 75 !!

Hence I am going to order a smaller number plate and do it myself.

Wish me luck, I'm bound to break something

Good luck bud,i bet that you learn a few more choice anglo saxon words during the fitting today but its def worth it.I want to do the rear pegs mod next but have been a bit put off by the process.After that an Arrow full system,pipercross filter and custom Crescent Suzuki power commander fueling map and that will then be time to rock and roll me thinks.

Dont forget to post your pics after its all done.

The deed is done, took me a couple of hours really taking my time.

How much $hit do you have to take off the bike ?

A before and after pick for humour..........

Re: 2008 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade Photos Thread

Cheers mate. I was a bit nervous bending the rear cowl off, but I didn't mind messing for a couple of hours, especially when I saved $150 in labor charge from the dealership.

Sorry to read about your spill. Glad everything's ok mate.

After I installed the tail tidy, I took the feelers off the bottom of the pegs.

Just need my number plate to come in the next day or two and I am ready to go. Forecast for the end of the week/weekend is dry and 16C. Gonna pop in the delaer to get them to adjust my chain, stretched quite a bit after only 250 miles and I hate adjusting them.

Re: 2008 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade Photos Thread

Had a little peek last night to ensure the tidy hadn't fell off

With the good forecast coming, I'm hoping to get towards the service time mileage on my bike by next week.

Re: 2008 Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade Photos Thread

I picked my blk 1000rr up on the 10th trouble is I race quads and crashed on the 30th & broke my skull so i waited 10 days to ride it home in pain now it sits in my shop waiting. god i can't wait! I took my wife for a ride very slow but that is all. My son has a 600rr and he rode it and said my bike was retarded and I QUOTE "THERE IS NO REASON FOR ANYTHING TO GO THAT FAST THAT FAST" I said sweet! get one

You are right mate.

I investigated all the litre bikes when everybody kept saying the bike was tiny. Take a look at the Blade, Gixxer,R1,ZX10 and you will find out that they are essentially all the same size with any difference being a couple of mm.
