My 'new' '08 CBR 1000RR!

Well I finally did it !

It was not an easy decision for me to decide on a 'new' 750cc+ bike, however when I rode the RR I was sure that within my budget there is no other bike I'd love to own more ...



It is standard apart from a Honda cowl, Honda rear mudguard, white rim tape and a BMC air filter. I plan to do many mods to this bike in the next weeks/months..I'll start off slowly though as I am now cash strapped after the bike purchase ...



First of all I want to buy '1000RR' decals for the fairings as seen on US Spec bikes (I think!?)...I LOVE the red RR letters ! Any ideas where can I source a couple?



Hmmmm....well...I may be just a little...



I hope you like it ...

Well...that would have to wait a bit cos it ain't cheap ...

Anyone knows if there's a good maintenance/repair manual for this bike? I do much of the work on my car/bikes and like to have a good reference handy ..

This week I'll change the oil, oil filter, clean the brakes, change pads, wash air filter etc ...

Thanks guys !

Drives really well and pulls cleanly from as low as 3000 revs. The most noticeable thing is that this has got loads more engine brake than my previous GSX-R 600..must be the bigger pistons ...I dare say this is easier to drive than the Zuki...

So far...I am absolutely in love with it ...
