Morning All,

Thought I'd tag my current track/race bike build from across the pond. Previous bike was a Triumph Daytona 675 2013 model used for Club 600 in a few local championships (Cracking bike). decided to upgrade to a 1000 so came across a 2017 UK base model CBR1000rr, had been written off by the previous owner on the road.
So far the bikes had:
Suspension - K-tech DDS front and rear fitted by Steve Whitear at HEL Performance. Ten-Kate steering damper brackets and K-tech damper (Toby).
Brakes - HEL calipers (Brembo Z04 pads, Motul RBF 660) and Master cylinder with dry break connections. Standard rear caliper with captive bracket - soon to have HEL thumb brake and HEL rear caliper.
Chassis - PP Tuning clip ons, Diamond racing rearsets, Evo-tech sliders, Spider captive wheel spacer, Ti fuel tank, UK race support clutch lever, alloy front and rear sub-frames, 520 racing chain.
Electronics - Ten-Kate loom, ECU and IMU relocated, BSB LHS switch gear, JMT Lithium battery. Yet to fit - Jet Prime RHS switch gear and HRC QA throttle, Honda blipper on route.
Bodywork - Hi-fibre tank and seat unit, Moto carbons carbon fairing and airtubes (Ex-Jackson Racing), pro-fibre carbon frame protectors, GB engine protection.
Performance - Full akra system, carbon bell mouths and MWR filter - 190Bhp & 85lb of torque, set up by Ben at REA Racing, silicone water hoses.

Only ridden her once at Andalucia and inital impressions are good, QS/Blipper didn't work due to switch gear issue (Hopefully resolved). But she's light, holds a tight line and good on the brakes - also matched bigger horse power bikes on the straight.

To Follow: Light weight wheels, track time and tyres!

Some on track vids to follow once the world turns the right way up again. Stay safe!

All the best Pablo

How does it handle compared to the 675 ? Probably not as agile but ultimately quicker lap time on this one ?

Well only ridden once at a very technical track that I've never ridden, however initial impressions are very good.
She was able to hold a tight line (Tighter than my mate on his R1), hitting apexes was fairly easy. Good on the brakes and trail braking. The only issue handling I had was head shake on the power - no steering damper (Now fitted a K-tech, Toby damper so hopefully cure this issue).
I'll be able to gauge properly once I can get on some UK tracks I've raced at before. But yes she will be quicker for sure.

Thought I'd upload some pictures of HEL caliper and master cylinder done in clear (To be used at Motorcycle shows to demonstrate the products). Really are a quality made product with excellent customer support.

Well initially I had intend on going the HRC style tank and seat unit, however I found out the subframe on the bike was a modified 2016 HRC unit. So I though the seat position wasn't quite right, very high at the rear. So i took the plunge and contacted Ten-Kate who supplied me a Moto-Holders subframe. And it does look the mutts nuts, however (Again!) The subframe rear mounting bolts didn't line up??? The Moto-Holders measuring 195mm spacing with the HRC style seat unit at 210mm.
So after bouncing back E-mails and no chance of a refund I decided to go for the Moto-Carbons stocker seat unit same as RC45 (Have to say I prefer the look, just not happy at the cost of unused HRC seat units, and is well made).
So lesson learnt 2 different rear subframes for a 2017 CBR.
Also the beautiful carbon exhaust hanger catches the seat and doesn't quite line up so a Moto-holders one on route.
Will also need to lengthen the positive cable to reach the battery.......but slowly getting the bike squared away.

Few more parts turned up:
Some nicely made PP tuning rearsets will be replacing the Diamond Racing units.
And Honda blipper from Ten-Kate.
Spider captive wheel spacers.
Also had what I thought was a Honda Quick Action throttle from one of the teams here in the UK turns out he sent me a Ducati unit, which means the JetPrime switch unit won't be fitted unless I can find one from somewhere else.

New rear caliper from HEL for the CBR. Looking at a quick release wheel system from L74, will help when racing and the unpredictable UK weather.

Managed to get my paws on a H20 rad from a 2016 bike, fits nice and neatly on the bike so hopefully keep the motor nice and cool along with the HRC thermostat.

Now time to grab the chin mounted oil cooler. :)

You may be running too cold once you get underway so stand by with a roll of duct tape to block off part of the radiator.

I don't run a fan so in the pits water temp climbs really quick in the Texas heat - it can get to 100C in a few minutes if I hang about, but once underway temps can drop to a chilly 70C sometimes as low as 67C even in 40C ambient temps.

The bike did run hot at Andalucia in March so bit like you RC45 no fans and with some potential endurance rounds I thought it was a wise move.

And yep if it got wheels or t$ts it gonna cost. But reckon it will be a competitive package one sorted and dialed in.

As for mods also got a thumb rake from HEL on Friday so looking forward to trying that out on the 2nd June at Donington. Also fitted a junction valve so I keep the foot brake option.
