As if no one riding a bike with two headlights on low beam has ever had a cager pull out in front of them. If anyone thinks this will prevent them from accident, they are delusional. Do you think Honda hasn't done studies on which setup is most effective? Or are they trying to save a couple dollars at the expense of the health and welfare of their current and future customers.

Re: 2009 Fireblade - CBR1000RR

Remember the thread was about what changes you would like to see on the 09 blade?
laubin stated he would like to see both lights for low beam.

Borat, Borat,

Re: 2009 Fireblade - CBR1000RR

Does anyone know where/how I can order/purchase the ACTUAL Fireblade plastics (purpleish color) and the ACTUAL Fireblade engine covers?

Re: 2009 Fireblade - CBR1000RR

I would like to see the tranny fixed and the nagging oil problem (blue smoke on high rev sometimes). At least they should include a gear indicator w/shift light, 5 spokes and some good graphics.

perhaps if you would have broken it in (if you even have one) properly that wouldn't have become a problem for you. Mine has 3800 miles on it now , and at about 2500 miles my avg mpg went up by about 2.5 mpg that to me signals the engine is nice and broke in now. Time for some Amsoil now, perhaps I'll get even more mpg out of that... and I haven't burned one drop of oil.

The ABS is intriguing, its not really brake by wire, you still have a master cylinder and you still have brake feel because its still hydraulic, its just that theres a sensor that detects lock up conditions and it sends a signal to a little black box that will "pulse" the pressure in the brake lines until the lock up condition stops. The only time it would feel any different from normal brakes would be when you reach lock up, and then it interferes for the better. So I would whole heartedly support ABS in the new 09 bike.

Traction Control would also be really slick to have stock.

Some other things I would like but dont forsee happening are quality levers...stock levers = suck, better seat shape for taller riders, and make the weird tag bracket/signal stalk a bolt on affair like the 07-08 R6.

Im sure Honda will address most of the concerns generated about the 08 bike like the whitening exhaust, oil consumption, paint quality, etc. But even with those foibles the bike is still a monster.
well stated and actually from someone who rides a new bike instead of some hater on an old 900rr talking about the new bikes being ugly. As for the windscreen I agree!!! taller please. Also include the rear seat cowl with bike like Suzuki does. The paint should be better also, especially on the gas tank area. Who cares about how the rear looks? buy a tail tidy kit from evo-tech. The hugger is useless it needs to be about 4 to 5 inches longer to stop the crap from flying everywhere under the bike. Any douche that can't figure out how to tape off and repaint the factory black muffler (if it turns white) is a tool that doesn't deserve to own a bike. A gear indicator would be AWESOME. Buy some new levers if you don't like stock guys... personalize the bike a bit. Thats why we get Honda prices. If you want a race bike off showroom floor shell out the money for a Ducati or shut the F up. last but not least and it doesn't apply to me having already bought an 08 model but please for the love of God someone design some new wheels for the Blade!!! we've been stuck with these same turd wheels since the 80's

AND GIVE US BACK THE HP YOU TOOK AWAY IN THE US MARKET so i don't have to lose 20lbs to make up for it

lol I left you out because I got hungry and had to go to lunch!!! It's ok though your comments are all decent!!! even though they don't have anything to do with what you do or don't like on the 08's and what you'd like to see on the 09's

Actually, I do not have an 08'. You can clearly see I have an 07' if you look left. Big can-o-worms, that broken in properly stuff is. I switched to Amsoil at 3000 miles as well, and no, mine burns no oil. The oil consumption issue with the 08' is pretty well documented and does not seem to depend on break in, but a manufacturing issue.
