2004 CBR 1000rr

So its winter and I am doing some upgrades. I have a jardine slip-on, a power commander 5 with an autotune and a set of air filters on the way. What else should I look at? I am an experienced rider just have never owned a CBR 1000. I bought it and it now has about 16k on it.

Maybe 520 conversion with gear change. If it's for the street I wouldn't do too much to it.

Yeah it will be a streeter. I was thinking about maybe some gearing because in all reality I am not going to do 180 down the street. Any thoughts?

Just to throw down my two cents. I went /+2 and couldn't be happier. Doesn't help keep front down but smooths out starts. U can always -1/ later.

520 conversion I like a lot. it gets rid of "feeling and hearing" the chain moving. doesn't add HP but better feel IMO. a little less weight is always nice

Hi. Just to give you my thoughts. I've done loads of stuff to mine and most mods are well worth it. If you can afford it I'd start with sorting out the handling by getting the forks rebuilt (mine have KTECH internals to Superstock spec), an Ohlins rear shock and fitting some race tires. This makes a huge differance and gives lots of confidence. After that you can go for prety much whatever you like. Gearing wise I went for -1 on the front and it has improved the pick up and response....but you should also look at fitting a Speedohealer to correct the speedo too.

-1 +1 is what I went with and the pick up is awesome

+1 -> Suspension

For $250 drop-in springs & oil in the front and a better shock spring will transform your bike. Youll wonder why you waited.

What's the service record on this bike like?

Splurge on basic maintenance items, new filters, engine oil, fork oil (tho it is now a major pain & full fork removal is required...), pop in new clutch plates + friction discs + springs, brake pads where required, brake fluid drain & refill. Do the spark plugs too while you are replacing the air filters. A new/upgraded chain would not hurt either....unless you are 100% confident with what the previous owner said/did.
Having the wheels & tires looked at is something I highly recommend. Honestly it is probably best to start with new rubber...it is after all the one thing that connects you to the road. Have the bearings inspected/cleaned/lubed/replaced. The steering stem bearings deserve a good looking over, if the previous owner was a huge yobbo & tossed the bike down after a wheelie there will definitely be some premature wear there. Replace with needle bearings if they are toast.
A PAIR block-off may be helpful to you...I suspect that's been done already though.
If you've got bunches of too much $ kicking around you could buy yourself a set of Takai Coil On Plugs...
