UK CBR 929RR Servo Motor Replaced with CBR1000RR4 Servo
Hi all, I just had my bike set up at my local dyno, and the servo gave up toward the end of the session. We took the bike home and i stripped the servo to find all the teeth missing from one of the gears. So i started making some phone calls only to get people quoting daft prices (£250 new) I was hoping at that price it would have gold plated gears, but no, just plastic. Even the breakers were wanting £120 for something that looked like it had been dredged from the bottom of a pond.
So whilst i was trawling the net for a solution, i came across a thread, on this site, where some guy knew of a guy who had replaced his servo with an RR4/RR5 servo. It was all a bit vague, but I took a chance and bought one from a RR4 off EBad for £60 posted. All i had to do was fit the mounting bracket from my old servo and i was back on the road.
All i can say is that the servo is (externally) identical to the one that came off, and saved me nearly £200 on the price of a new one. I took the bike round the block last night and everything is back to normal.
Hope this helps others in the same situation I found myself last week,
