Couple weeks ago I purchased and took home a 2018 SP1 for a very good deal, that I could not pass on.

The perks of working for a Honda dealership has it benefits.
I made myself a binder with the service manual, full OEM parts fiche list, and HRC parts list

Hoping there are some over seas riders here that are viewing and reading my posts. Looking for a shop or online place that has or can get OEM decals from a 2018 Fireblade. Here in Canada the bikes are labeled as “1000RR”. But looking to get the “Fireblade” decals. Any help would be great. Pictures below to make sense of what I want.

Give Awesome Graphics in the UK a try. They have what you need and also do custom work. I've bought several items from them over the years. Reasonable pricing and fast shipping!

I appreciate the help. But I have my own vinyl cutter, and someone who can make pretty much any sticker.
I’m really wanting and looking for OEM only. I know pricing is a lot more, but that’s what I’m like lol.
Thank you though

Very cool. I have one of those HRC brake reservoir sock things. The packaging was funny, it was labeled as an "official" HRC part for the RCV.

Did the Brembo clutch lever change the engagement point?

I'll be watching this one too even though mine is a 14. Will be interested to see where you find the stickers. I've been dredging through mounds of garbage search results trying to find similar stuff for my SP.


The reservoir socks are the real McCoy, and are the same socks they use on the MotoGP bikes for Marquez and Lorenzo’s bikes. Soon as I saw the part #. I knew I had to have it lol

The Brembo mechanical clutch doesn’t really change much. I’d say it’s more for a bling bling factor. I myself like it better than stock. Also looks better having all Brembo up top.

Yah I’ve been searching for them and I think I’ve found the part #s but can’t confirm.

I managed to secure all the same stuff you are after - HRC mat, HRC fluid socks, Golden side covers, Ti bolts - hell I even got a full OEM etc decal set before the HRC bike landed (intending to use them on the race body) but the one elusive mod was OEM Fireblade SP1 or SP2 decal sets.

Unlike USA/Canada where either through local dealer or Partzilla all part say seem available, much of the Honda inventory is on permanent backorder through overseas Honda dealers, decal sets included.

Good luck in you search - :)


that does confirm the part numbers I have are back ordered then. Thank you!

were in canada are you? just word of advice with the brembo clutch lever and older be very care full with brembo switch on the clutch! if it doesn't make very good contact with perch it will cause all sorts of problems


Brembo doesn’t have a clutch switch on the Mechanical Clutch. Clutch MC maybe, but not this one.
However, I did break the Honda one lol

Titanium bolts for the rear rotor and abs ring. The abs ring I made it silver to match the rest of the bike. I have been making most of the brackets silver. Looks nicer in my opinion. Small details

Renthal Ultralite front sprocket in, with a titanium bolt to replace the old steel bolt. Will be looking to find a titanium washer that sits over top of the sprocket. Currently investigating.
I was about to put the rear sprocket on but I had ordered the wrong size

Renthal Ultralight rear sprocket, with titanium drilled washers and titanium nuts.





After installing the rear sprocket, I found out raceboltuk makes titanium stud bolts for the sprocket hub. Will be ordering soon. Also wanting to change the color of the black sprocket hub, been thinking silver.
Speaking of silver, I made my kickstand and kickstand holder bracket silver. Waiting on the titanium holder bolts and flanged nut to arrive. Made my bar end weights silver as well.

I got the flanged Ti nuts and Ti studs for the sprocket - no need for washers. Saves about 7 grams LOL

Get the TSR silver bar ends, really makes the stock bars pop.


Definitely get rid of the washers when I get the Ti studs, and shorten the studs 3-4 mm as well.

I actually do have the TSR bar ends on my list to get lol. Saw those on webike last year when I had the Repsol.

Do you guys run that stock plastic chain guard? Noticed it's not there in the picture. I leave mine on there to keep the chain crud off the bodywork but I'm always thinking of taking it off and going without.


I do keep mine on. I had it off and had not put it back on. I have a carbon one on its way

More titanium for the SP. Found out a bolt at the very end of the subframe near the taillight isn’t listed in the parts fiche. I had an extra titanium bolt that I was able use, just had to shorten its bit

New covers for the SP, and all new titanium bolts for the covers. All 23 bolts









All the brackets I’ve changed to silver. Looks better in my opinion.






Very happy with the new look

Looking good!

Did you take this chance to replace the Hondabond with gaskets?

I saw the post and I totally forgot. You have part numbers?
