It's a great bike. Especially after an ECU flash. I have the small Yosh can, like it a lot.

I would like to raise the bars/clip-ons a bit, but can't seem to find the right brand/height that fits. Anybody?

Many people here are down on it, but I guess if you are in the habit of comparing yourself to others, you will never really be happy.

I've seen incredible prices on this bike, probably because it got lost in the Literbike Jungle!

I hadn't looked at a Honda 1000 since the '08 piston ring/oil burning debacle. This thing Scoots! I like to sneak up on cars and watch 'em get nervous at how fast I'm in their mirrors. At first, they think I'm a Cop.

I'm using Shell Rotella 5w-40. The bike really likes it.

Buying a Fast Bike will not make you Fast.

WELL, I don't know about that, and unless you have a reputable Dyno Comparison, it sounds a little optimistic. But the bike starts right up, revs easily, shifts easily, and doesn't overheat. So WITHOUT STARTING ANOTHER OIL THREAD (God help us), I'd say that's good enough for me. I like to use the lowest possible viscosity for my Climate.

I have the base 1000RR model. So far i have added the quickshifter. I plan on adding an exhaust, and do the ecu flashing as well as adding rearsets. I canít seem to find too many companies that make decent priced rearsets for this model. Any suggestions? So far I have taken off the tailkit and added aftermarket integrated lights as well as tank traction pads. Was using stomp grip on my older CBR, thought I would try out some new ones on this bike.

Rearsets for the SC77 is not a simple mod. Mostly because people normally try combine going GP shift with rearset swap and the Honda Quickshifter is very particular about the orientation and layout of the shift pedal, shift rod and shift arm.

Long story short is your choices are limited to what actually works. And for the most part they are somewhat pricey and be sure to choose the version you need - if its race only GP shift like the Ten Kate rearsets you lose the kickstand.

TSR look great, match the bike and work very well.
