Better exaust, again I'm not too pushed by the look of the current one but the quality is very poor.
Tidy the rear end a bit, aestetically its the bikes worst feature, a tidy tail is needed.
Give us a rear hugger that does what huggers are meant to do, not like the useless piece of thrash supplied with the bike.
Am I asking too much when I ask for a bike with a fuel gauge?????????
My 2011 still has no fuel gauge!!

Re: 2009 Fireblade - CBR1000RR

Well since you asked...

Rider Review: 2009 Honda CBR 1000RR, Repsol Edition


"Yays and Nays"

  • Performance - yay. (yay-wow actually) Unless you're a pro with loads of high-end racing experience, it's hard to not be blown away by what happens when you twist the grip all the way to the stop. This thing really moves. Peels off into turns like a plane and stops world-class as well.
  • Ergos - yay for me! (Ha!)
    For me, it's a yay. Because I'm short, and it's a great fit. You won't be able to hang your soles off the passenger pegs and lay flat under the wind if you're 5'10". But at 5'7", with a little difficulty you may be able to load yourself like a spring up on the rear pegs and get prostrate. Support the front of your helmet off the tank with your left hand and your practically a sonic couch potato. For me it's a welcome alternative on long trips and in brisk weather. I am very pleased that this staple riding position of mine continues with the Repsol.
  • Mileage - definite yay. 145mi before low fuel light if you go easy. My old CBR 900RR used to get somewhere in the 160's. But the 929 was geared down and could hardly make 120 before coveting the pump. I love the independence and peace of mind that comes from cruising range.
  • Transmission - yay. It's a clickfest. Tick, tick, tick like a fine Suisse movement. Use the clutch, don't use it... whatever. Predictable and precise.
  • Personality as a commuter/urban transporter- yay. You can go thru six gears and be at 45mph or roar around the freeways in 4th and never shift at all. You can crawl at 10mph, steady as a rock. No surging, no BS. The 2009 CBR 1000 is as much at home stuck in traffic with both fans whirring as it is at 160mph at redline in 5th gear. The slipper clutch makes clutchless upshifts unnoticeable at times.
  • Vibration - yay. None, really. Very smooth, esp. at conservative revs.
  • Weight - yay. Feels exactly like my old 929. I can hold it on a hill with no brakes, even with only the balls of my feet touching the ground.
  • Mirrors - definite yay. Very useable, even at speed. New folding style keeps its adjustment, even as a helmet-holder.
  • Trunk space - yay!!!! (w/ the Hotbodies kit.) Still not as much as my last racer, but not horrible. I actually do internet searches for trunk space now when considering a sportbike. After living 10yrs with a 929, stowage is a must-have.
  • Conversion to GP shift - yay. Not easy like with 929, but still can be done, keeping the stock rearsets, with no aftermarket parts
NAYS
  • Helmet holder under pass. seat - nay. Even the most careful and gentle helmet placement ruins the beautiful (and expensive) Repsol branding.
  • Oil Change and lower cowl removal/replacement - nay. Really a pain in the ass.
  • Stock seat - nay. If you're going the distance on this bike, get the Honda E-Cushion seat, or equivalent. It's a repli-racer. I'm nitpicking. I understand.
  • Availability of helmets/jackets in Repsol orange - nay. Choices are slim my friend. My Nikko Motoracing helmet matches. But the only burnt orange hot weather jacket I could find fits my trim waistline like I made it myself in a sewing class. Doesn't really match either.
  • Crash protection retrofit - nay.
    I lucked out in that the prev owner fitted GB Racing side covers, but frame sliders? Not a do-it-yourself proposition on this bike. Not for me. I never owned a sportbike for any length of time w/out frame sliders. In the past they have saved my upper cowls on low/no speed tips. I'll have to see what my options are.
  • Trunk locking mechanism in the middle of the compartment. I already locked myself out by having the stuff in there interfere with the release lever. Don't stuff it full, you won't be able to get back in!

Re: 2010 Fireblade RR9 - CBR1000RR

Hi,

Does anyone know how to remove the upper securing 'Whatevers' that fix the Fairing to the right and Left sides.
I have removed the bottom fairing, but can't see for the life of me what to remove next to take the whole fairing off.
With any luck, once removed, I will fit crash protectors from Design Bike without having to drill holes in the Fairing......so of course it requires the fairing to be removed............

The airducts are part of the fairing on 08-11 models. You must remove the belly pan. Then remove the pop clips on the inside of the front fairing. There is a few. Then you must remove the air duct covers. Note there is an inner piece under the air duct cover that must be removed. It has 3 pop clips. There is breather hoses attached to the air duct that also must be removed. Then you can slide it forward so the air duct releases from the frame.

Re: 2009 Fireblade - CBR1000RR

Is the performance the same between the 2009 and 2011? Folks seem to rave about the 2009 but I thought they were basically the same bike through 2011??

Re: 2009 Fireblade - CBR1000RR

They are virtually the same. In 2010 they "improved crankshaft inertia" and changed the tail section a little bit. I think the gear ratios are all the same. Probably monitored the piston oil rings a little closer.

Re: 2009 Fireblade - CBR1000RR

Hmmm. Also seeing posts of the '08-'11 performing better than the '12? Any thoughts on this?. The 2012 only weighs a couple of pounds more. More conservative mapping on the later model?

Got nothing for you there. Haven't heard much on the new bodies yet. Let alone even seen one in my area.

Re: 2009 Fireblade - CBR1000RR

Guys,

I have an '06 CBR 1000 and IM in the process of getting some parts painted. Does anyone know if there is an issue with getting the swing arm powdercoated. My mechanic seems to think that the swing arm is internally insulated and wont be able to withstand the heat when being baked after powdercoated. Anyone? P.S. Its not being cromed
