might as well start this. ended up with a mint 08 cbr 1000rr after selling my hayabusa. got a bit inebriated and put a stupid low max bid in on the blade. next morning after i realized i won i decided to check the bike out. looked pretty nice and i liked the colors so whatever. owner delivered it to me a few hours later and here we are.





first thing i did was cut the stock exhaust open and removed the cat and a crossover tube. gives it a nice sound and doesnt need to be remapped which is nice. seems this gen and newer needs some fancy S midpipe to keep back pressure. good enough for now



and out


and welded, shittily, this stuff liked to burn through


bottom of the new top triple


and top


and then all its clothes fell off


risers and fat bars


inside of the airbox. secondary injectors are inside pointing into the v stacks


pair delete. other shit getting deleted.


stock throttle and clutch cables fit. r1 throttle tube installed too. now i can hit full throttle with my shitty wrist!!!!


that brings us mostly up to date. did a bit of wiring on the front. still have a bit more to go.

Got some more done. Mounted the gauge cluster. Replaced the brake resi. Put some braided lines on. Some levers. And had to take the the tail and subframe apart just to remove the pssenger pegs. So I made some brackets to quickly remove them without having to do that shit again. Oh put a mini air horn on too
Oh. I found a switchblade inside the bike while I was taking it apart. That has to be a good sign. That pics down there somewhere.













And then my phone died. I'll get more pics later probably.

Those pics I said I'd take. Right after I took them I pulled the old license plate light off. Probably should have rounded the edges off on them ha

agreed. unfortunately on the 08 and up fireblades you lose a lot of back pressure and get a huge flat spot down low and in the mid range when you remove the stock can. unless you use this S midpipe. rode it with the stock can and with a small slipon without the S midpipe and it was much stronger with the stock can. so until i find a slipon i want the exhaust will stay. especially since it sounds pretty good now haha.
