Bolt-on/slip-on are the same. They just describe two different methods of muffler fitting.

Awesome bike, until you come to the fun roads. Then any of the 600's will eat it alive.

You can't buy over-size cylinders as they are integral with the cases.
Cost for boring, plating and the piston kit runs around US$1350 last time I priced it.
Contact US Chrome.
You can bore 1mm with no problems.

EDIT: That's $1350 _plus_ the cost of stripping and rebuilding the engine.

Have the cash for mods but the old lady is pissed that im even thinking of more. Apart from raising the intake charge psi, looking for the best 'bang for buck' for more power. Need some advice... should i go injectors, cam/valves, bottom end (stroke, bore), aspiration etc. Just cant slap on some flashy turbo or nos can, or the wife will have my balls (and she already does but that's a conversation in its own). I can get away with "Ohh it broke and I need a rebuild" or something similar... Need advice from the pro's.

Me too, all I could think about is that the 954 is about the last model with a trunk large enough to hide a NOS bottle.

Re: Make my FireBlade faster (without my wife knowing).

What I got from the little bit you posted Midwest, was that it was the new motor. AKA the 954?


As for porting and polishing, You would do best to find someone who is knowledgeable in the feild and having them do it. It is best to have a flow bench for such a thing as well.

An Magnesium wheels, as great as they are. I dont think you want to go out and spend more then the bike is worth. Looking at wheels for my bike, its something like $5000.. Thats almost as much as I paid for the bike brand new.

Re: Make my FireBlade faster (without my wife knowing).

I don't think you have to buy new sleeves. I got that bit from page 2 of this article...2002 Honda CBR 954 RR Fireblade - Ride Review - Page 1

I also don't have any info on pricing but the all mighty bladeracer might have some more information on this.

Re: Make my FireBlade faster (without my wife knowing).

Im curious about head porting. Anyone with any real world data on this? Have the ability, worried about materiel depth. Hard to find any figures about how much you can remove and retain flow/thermal efficiency. Any insight into porting/polishing?

Re: Make my FireBlade faster (without my wife knowing).

Have the exhaust (full bolt on 2 bro's manifold and pipe), flapper mod is modest at best (easily just clamped, I saw little performance increase from this), and have the best map I can find for my exhaust (beyond a tuning shop). Looking hardware here. Cam, stoke, pistons, valving etc...

Honda also say the material that makes up these new sleeves provides better wear resistance and heat dissipation, I have no science degree so will simply take their word for it. I guess a lot of racers will immediately be doing that overbore to get them from 954 to 960cc as for them every little bit counts.
So your saying sleeve the cylinders and go over bore pistons (over bore for power/compression ratio and sleeves for longevity)? So saying I sleeved the cylndr's and ran up to a .25mm overbore (without a top end mod), what can I expect to gain (modestly)?
