Hi.

Bought my CBR954RR in September 2019 after 15 years not riding a bike since i met my wife and got a child.
So this Spring and Summer i will be back in the saddle again and try to get back into fast group where i were last time i ride a bike at track.
Have been truthful to Honda since i had my Moped a Honda MT50.
When we come to motorcycle my first was a CBR919RR that first owner had imported from Canada and there was only 5 with that color scheme in Sweden right then.
Picture one with lightning color scheme and i was very visible in traffic but also everyone knows who you are including cops :-(. Think i did 3-4 Track Days with that bike.
My second bike was a CBR929RR that i really liked and sold it with tears in my eyes because insurance company said they want around 3500 Euro per year for full insurance. That was a Black CBR and is picture 2 where i am at Mantorp Park for a Track Day. Made around 8 Track Days with that bike.

Now i got a CBR954RR Blue and White that i am fixing last parts before Spring.
When i do something i try to post it in this thread.

Done by previous owner:
Öhlins springs in front fork
Complete new Nitron shock in back just had service at Nitron before i bought it.
LED turn signals that i have removed
Better tank grip
Race handles
Chrash pucks in frame
Acrapovic

Done by me so far:
New front fender with right color
Regular turn signals with bulbs cause the old one did not work proper and was ugly.
Painted scratches and Racing stripes on wheels since previous owner had changed tires himself and it was alot of scratches on rims.
Polish alot.

Left to do right now:
Maybe mount chrash pucks at front wheel= Have them already
Change turn signal/light switches at handle bar since they do not work proper= On order
Change oil and filter= On order
Maybe change air filter

Hi.

I am sitting with computer to order motor oil for regular change.

I will order Castrol Power 1 Racing and wonder if i should go with 10W-40 or 10W-50 since it same price on both?

I would go with the 10W-40 as your still in winter in your country
Okey.
Even if bike stands at my brothers firm where it is around 20 degress during winter?
My thought was if 10W-50 was better when you ride on track?

Just put in a order for Castrol Power1 Racing 10W-40 since i will use bike som some normal use also and think it will manage those Track Days i will go on after some reading.

Then i just signed up for my first Track Day at Mantorp Park 15 May and already looking forward to this.

Mantorp Park has a very long straight where you reach around 250-270 km/h before you go in a 180 degree corner which is very exiting :)
This is because they ride Drag Racing there also.

There are a couple more Torques that go in excess of 113Nm (swing arm bolt, clutch ) maybe have something like this
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/1-2-Ratcheting-Torque-Wrench-28-210Nm-Socket-Drive-Ratcheting-with-Extension-UK/122728775161?hash=item1c93347df9:g:Pb4AAOSwjc5Z3dp-
Okey.
Then it will be cheaper to buy two different ones for me.
One with lower torque and one with higher torque.
Total for these two will be around 70-80 Euro.

Soon time for oil change and therefore i need with lower torque.

Following things will be done.
Change button controller for headlight, turn signal and horn= Have a brand new one
Change motor oil= Will be Castrol RACE Power1 10W-40
Change oil filter= Orginal Honda filter
Change air filter= Bought a new K&N filter

Then everything i wanted to do this winter is done and ready for street and track.

Update day 1 in the garage.

First of all i am a totally rookie on doing my own service on bike which made me to unscrew several time and because of that it took long time :).
Then second i am a guy with no patience which does not help that make several times sit down and take some deep breath and look on youtube how to do.
Below is pictures from start and almost att goal.
Tomorrow i will change oil and filter and then i am ready for summer.

Change the buttons for light and turn signal was a pain for me since a had to lift tank and remove whole air filter box to reach quick connectors for that.
But finally all buttons works and i am really happy that i bought i new original from Honda and David Silver parts.
Now i do not have to think about that anymore.
Since i remove i upgraded air filter to K&N.
So tomorrow i finish this with oil change and then bring me summer please:)

Day 2 of service.

Everything went well today with oil change and re mount all fairings.
One thing since it is really hard to se if bike is straight while checking oil level. It could be at max level but even little above after i warm bike up two times.
What problem could i cause if there is max 1 DL to much oil?
Should i try to take some out?
Then i made a mistake yesterday when i mount air intake to box and had to change side of them today but now it is fixed.
I put another layer of wax on it as well and put battery charger on it.
So now except for oil question everything is ready for Spring.
