Hi guys...first post, and a few questions

Just took delivery of a 1000rr 2010 limited, and wanted to know a few answers to my questions.
I had a daytona 650, and added new can pcIII , gilles rearsets etc... but don't want to do the same to the rr. But , i do want to add a few bits. I've alreday added a carbon chain guard, seat sides and heel plates and evotech tail tidy, but i also want to add a can cover:

cbr1000 2008 2009 r8 rr9 cbr1000rr carbon can cover cbr on eBay (end time 10-Feb-11 21:07:00 GMT)

Are the 08 and 09 cans the same as the 2010 model?

If so, cool!

anyway, here's a picture or 2 of said bike:

Re: Hi guys...first post, and a few questions

If I were a betting man, I would go with the same exhaust. You tried asking the seller?

LOL, I meant the eBay seller! See if the cover fits the '10.

Although, you could ask the dealer if the exhaust is the same.

From what I remember, the 2010 model got minor changes to the tail fairing, some internal engine mods and that was about it.

Yes, nice bike, welcome to the world of filling the oil up every 1000 miles. (I'm in a nasty mood tonight!)

Re: Hi guys...first post, and a few questions

Si

The chrome sleeve on the exhaust is exactly the same 08-10. The difference in the exhaust on the 2010 is there is a raised heat shield on the bottom the exhaust, it is primarilt a shield and probably helps mask the exhaust whitening problem which happens after a few thousand miles of heat cycles.

Great looking bike.

FWIW I would get a hugger as the underbelly of the bike gets a lot of abuse with the OEM excuse for one.

Sometimes I wish I was a faster rider, but there's no heroes in the graveyard..............

Somebody isn't a happy bunny........the 2010 bike "should" be better in this respect.

Hopefully.

I've never had such problems.....I know a few owners have had but not me. I don't touch the oil and I use my bike all year round. I've owned mine (08 model) since new.

anyway......

Nice bike but then I am slightly biased I love the current blade I never tired of the bikes looks. I do hate the exhaust whitening after a while and I had my original replaced under warranty. The problem seems to have been cured on newer models. Enjoy the new bike
