The SC82 HRC Parts Kit and Setup Manual is here!

The parts kit manual is quite thin, indicating that the base bike is really a great Club / SuperStock Racer platform right out of the a box!

It us just a pity Honda America is only bringing the SP over - the first bit of kit tossed out is the gimmicky Ohlins ECS.

The SC82 HRC ECU has some great improvements over the SC77, but it still shows the SC77 is a very competent package!

The SC82 HRC ECU brings 30 levels of Traction Control, 15 power output levels and Engine Braking per gear per CYLINDER!

But of course the HRC kit is meant to turn a street bike into a proper race bike so be prepared to lose some of the street concessions and to ditch the gimmicky Ohlins ECS ;)

Honda still I think have by far the best engineered 2 wheel products on the planet.
I also think Honda has by far the worst customer service relationship process of any company on the planet LOL

Yeah I heard from an inside source they had been hacked, but I just assumed it was only American Honda and it was on Tuesday..
Was the entire company brought down globally?
The Chicoms maybe?
I had to order a part for the vfr 5 june from H dealer and was told on 10th that there was a delay bc of it.
I think it was at H HQ from a media report I read and only stopped production momentarily. No word if H paid or not.

RC45, this will primarily be a "toy" for me that I commute with and occasionally take to the track for fun. For that reason, I don't need most of the HRC sweetness and would prefer to just keep the Ohlins ECS.

PAIR blockoff, I could benefit from. What other things could still be appreciated without the HRC ECU? Mirror block-offs? Lighter parts? I'd be willing to pay for the parts list to look at it, but I understand that it might only be in Japanese and take some hoop-jumping to get my grubby paws on.

Almost everything HRC related is designed to work with other HRC parts or only when the street part associated is removed.

This is why many times you will see tuners and race shops bad mouth the HRC stuff as a waste of time and not offer any performance gain, its because the HRC solutions are engineered solutions where everything has its place and nothing is accidental.

So when you pick and choose its important to understand the compromise that comes with only using some of the stuff - that's the intermediary knowledge gap I try to fill/

And the fact that HRC tender out the work to small manufacturers and specialists in Japan and what ever they charge is what HRC bases the price on.
You want that HRC load cell quick shifter? $2900 thanks. How about the Quick Shifter signal booster unit? $1800 extra.. o_O

The older NL9 rear axle set? Please $2100 to the young lady at the door, thank you very much.

Then other parts, liek the SC77 HRC left hand switch cluster ... $55.00! The stock switch cluster is $170. The only difference? The horn button on the HRC unit is a dud and the Hazard witch uses 1 less wire.

This brings us to the SC82 parts, so far the only stuff that looks like it could be used on its own is the full exhaust, PAIR block off kit, clutch pack, pre-drilled oil filler cap, drain bolt and swing-arm shark fin.

As an example, the HRC PAIR block off kit is about $300. The new style uses dummy reed valves and plugs.

Thanks as always for your detailed response.

I have no interest in the major performance parts. Well, I have an interest, but not one big enough to justify the cost. I'm just a simple man...

I would definitely be up for buying the PAIR block off. I'd like mirror block offs as well if they are even an option. I understand there's probably some 3rd party or custom options, but OEM fit and finish is worth the cost for me.

I'd also buy the oil fill, drain plug, shark fin, and any other similar "accessories" that aren't dependant on full ECU replacement or expensive engine parts. Are these the same bits offered as accessories to the non-Americans?

The clutch pack? Considering that I'll really only use the clutch from a stop, is it mostly to improve longevity from clutch-dumping starts or is there something else? It could probably wait until I need a new clutch if not.

The full exhaust. Is it the Akra with the neat quick-detach header? I assume it does away with the electronic flapper on the consumer bike, but is lighter and louder?

You sitting down and moved all open drink containers away?
If its anything like the SC77 JSB exhaust, then about $3900 plus any price increases HRC has factored in.

HRC just put the price of everything up again --- the ECU was first priced at $1900 now it looks to be about $2400.

The Honda hack was global level, the Canadian website was temporarily down on the weekend, and when I tried emailing Acura at the national level for customer service about an issue I got a general “we are experiencing technical difficulties”.
Last I was told was 1 Aug, and my dealer openly acknowledges how bad Honda corporate is to deal with.

HRC stuff is made to order if not on the shelf at an HRC service center in Japan. And they are always prepaid in full for made to order stuff..

Well, once the teams are taken care of, I'm definitely interested in information on purchasing some of the goodies.

Here's some pictures of the sweet HRC exhaust:

Wouldn't mind potentially picking that up, but I'll wait to see how it affects performance and what's required to get the most of it. I assume that without the HRC ECU, there could possibly be some negative performance impacts without a tune.

Not sure where they get the promotional info to run these articles, but its seldom accurate.

"If you buy the HRC Race Kit for your 2021 Fireblade, Honda R&D recommends that you get the Akrapovič Evolution Line Kit (Titanium) to go with it. "

The bike is only called "2021" in the US and Honda US literally do not care about racing this or any other bike. And note the article simply reads "Honda recommends you you get this Akro exhaust".

We are finding out there is no exhaust being sold through HRC, their answer is "use what you source" and guess what, Akro are not sharing the exhaust they are developing for the HRC WSBK team :LOL::ROFLMAO: They are fully into the marketing of the street exhaust (which is also not available yet) but do not have a race exhaust generally available yet. My guess is Honda don't want them to.

Well connected and big budget teams in Europe are having no luck - but luckily TSR are smart enough to sell what they design and use for the TSR backed race teams, so for now rather than Vaporware, the TSR exhaust is real :)

And you guys down there might be the last to see them. But you'll know by then that they should all be good ones. We in UK will get all the 'reconditioned' engines.:D

If I find one scratched crankcase or smear of oil on mine I'll be making some noise that will be heard in Kumamoto.:mad:
I have a ridiculous conspiracy theory (that even I don't actually believe) about those engines, suppose Honda wants to advertise the bike with X bhp and homologate the engine to a certain spec using ultra lightweight con rods, but know damned well that the engine isn't going to make its extended warranty with that spec. So maybe they decide to release just enough engines to get by whichever racing organization they're trying to sneak the engine through and have press bikes doing dyno pulls that confirm their claims, recall them after that, and release a slightly lower spec engine that will probably live five years in the hands of your average geezer. Manufacturers have done way weirder things when desperate.

I have all inventories and prices of HRC and stock components confirmed so expect the kit price to be available either today or tomorrow.

If any of you SC77 guys want the SC82/RC217-VS rear brake caliper and the SC82 oil cooler or SC82 swingarm, speak now as it does not look like SC82 spares are very plentiful at the moment.
Silly question, and not that I'm in the market or anything, but what would the SC82 swinger do for the 77? I expect you'd have to do some work with the shock (maybe valving and spring, which may rule out the electronic suspension bikes) to make it all work together?
