@D4rkside I know what you are talking about and must say those 2 pins are difficult to remove. Removing all of the bodywork was difficult and truth be told I broke a couple of tabs (thankfully on the least expensive parts), one of which was on the tail. I will post a pic here so you can see and hopefully avoid this.

@able duc on the Ducati's you actually NEED to leave them on....funny that you mention doing it "the cheap arse way"....I spy 6 titanium bolts and a carbon spring guard in that pic :)

Nothing misses your keen eye. carbon came from the parts bin and the Ti was purchased in a assorted big bag from europe for peanuts in the world we lived in previously. Some good quality stuff comes from Eastern Europe.
Why do you say you need to leave the air injection still in place on the Pani's?

Since the 1199 the smog block off plates work with the mapping to make the initial 5% of the throttle smoother both in roll on and off - I have a few of these bikes including a 2016 WSSTK Panigale R, 1299 Superleggera and a V4R. I have removed the smog system from the WSSTK bike only because it is running a Magneti Marelli MLE240.

Received a BMC race air filter yesterday, installed it and began the process of finishing the HRC wiring harness install. For the most part the wiring harness layout is intuitive and clean.

I may get the bike started today....will update with more pics of the Bike Sport Developments race switches.

All HRC parts installed including: harness, ecu, rectifier relocation bracket, quick-turn throttle and BSD switches. Everything appears to be working, dash only complains about ESD but I plugged that in to see if the error went away and it did - I am not using it though so I will make my initial configuration changes to the ecu and then start up tomorrow after Engine Ice coolant arrives.

Initial start up was error-free and a breeze....I plugged in the oem steering damper so the dash would not have an error then started communication with the HRC software.

The bike communicates with the software to figure out which bike you have...

The software warns you that that the default configuration cannot be over-written.
I created a new file named: 'Initial config' and made the changes for tire size, gearing and mechanical steering damper...

Just waiting on forks to be shipped, we are waiting on the damper adjuster rod from Ohlins - they sent the wrong ones.
Also waiting on some drilled bolts and a couple of other small items over the next week or so.
I should have some more pics today or tomorrow of the bike in its current state before bodywork is installed.

When converting from road going to race bike things get moved around. One of those things is the voltage rectifier. For what they are there are some parts that simply don't justify the price and the bracket that holds the relocated rectifier is one of them...

Here is the part --> HRC regulator stay Honda CBR1000RR-R (SP) 2020

So the HRC setup manual doesn't seen here --> HRC set-up manual/parts list (SST) Honda CBR1000RR-R (SP) 2020

Here are the details from the HRC setup manual
261866


On this page you can see the rectifier mounted to the frame...
261867


The HRC setup manual does not really explain where the rectifier is relocated to but I noticed it in the image marked 1-6 above. On page 2-8 you can see there are three bolts, two collars, two nuts and four rubber parts that also need to be purchased for this bracket.

Below the bracket has two rubber dampers for the frame (smaller) and two rubber dampers for the collars that hold the rectifier to the bracket.
261864


Fully assembled
261865


The bracket works and mounts up perfectly but this thing should have cost maybe $100, not $700!

These posts will be invaluable to anyone going down the same road.
The time, money, and effort put in looks substantial. How much would you say you have invested at this point?
What is the intended usage for this beast?

@HP17 this will be a 50K bike when it is all done - my original intention was to make it a MotoAmerica Stock 1000 bike but given the short supply of SPs we will see and so far there are no non-SPs in the US, which would have been the smarter way to go. The way I think, there is a line between making something too nice and nice enough that it works really well but not too expensive or special to be able to replace easily. To me you have to be willing to push it hard enough to win and that usually means a few mistakes. Honda only brought 99 of these bikes to the US and it is honestly a very, very nice motorcycle stock but I like to see the potential of a bike so I went all in. I want to see how this CBR measures up as a real race bike. If I can go faster on it than my current race bike then I will put up for sale my 2017 GSX-R1000R and 2019 ZX-10RR but we are not talking about a lot of time....I'm talking like maybe 1-2 seconds a lap faster. I have a 2019 V4R that is REALLY fast but the damn thing is VERY difficult to ride at that pace for several laps. I am expecting the CBR will be faster AND easier to ride. Stay tuned and I will let you know what I find out.

Very stoked for you. Perhaps one of the best & most complete threads I’ve seen here. Well Done.

All sounds good I'm still wondering though do you plan to use the CBR as a track bike or if all goes well would you race competitively with it? Do you race competitively now, if so what series/where can I tune in?

I'm be at Buttonwillow on 3/27 and 3/28 with Lets ride track days. Maybe you'll be there?

@HP17 Yes my SP will be a track-only / race bike and I do race with AFM, WERA and a couple of rounds with MotoAmerica, # 125 in all classes :)

I go to BW often....I am signed up for the 27th.

Would you mind sharing the cost breakdown? For a $28000 bike that means $22k in upgrades?
