Bonelorry's Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade

And onto the next Bike/Project

As some of you know I have just sold my 2020 BMW S1000R Sport last Week and have been scouring the Used Bike Market for something to replace it with, I had a shortlist of about 10 Bikes all differing in age and style of Bike.

I had a 1999 Honda Fireblade a few Years back and always promised myself a 2006/2007 Model if the right example popped up and in the Red/Black Colour Scheme.

In my opinion these are one of the best looking Fireblades with the Underseat Exhaust and Upside Down Forks, The Styling changed post 2008 and I have never been much of a fan of those later Bikes.

Well last night the stars aligned and the right Bike in the right Colour located at a Dealership I know very well came up.

Spotted the advert during my Break last night, Finished my Afternoon shift at 1am and drove up to Leeds this morning for when they opened as I have missed out on Bikes like this in the past so wasn't going to let it happen this time.

Did all my usual poking around and for a 15 Year old Bike it has the usual very minor age related marks here and there but it really is superb and I had to remind myself of its age when I was been hypercritical.

I decided I was having it and got the Deal I was happy with, The Bike is getting a Interim Service including Oil & Filter, Spark Plugs, Brake Fluids. They are removing the Datatool Alarm as they are a PITA and I hate them, They are Delivering the Bike and knocked £200 off the price. Happy Days!

Comes at some point next Week so will be going straight into the Garage for some usual Bonelorry treatment.


The Bike...

2006 Honda CBR1000RR-6 Fireblade, Last of the Lightweights 176KG/170BHP. No Electronics, No Rider Aids etc.
11300 Miles
4 Previous Owners
Very good Service History with about 8 Stamps

Has a few really nice extra's too

Akrapovic Carbon Can with Titanium Link Pipe £700 Worth
Genuine Colour Coded Rear Pillion Seat Cover
Genuine Honda Tank Protector
R&G Aero Frame Protectors
Powerbronze Screen
Rear Paddock Stand Bobbins


Future Plans...

The Bike is already very well prepared and is a credit to its previous owners but I want to go through it all.

I want to replace the Front Screen for an MRA or something like that, The Powerbronze one fitted is showing its age.

Replace the Paddock Stand Bobbins for some Evotech Items.

Other than that just leave it alone and enjoy it, Obviously it will be for Summer use only and on a limited Mileage basis but I am planning on getting a Second Bike of similar age but that offers a totally different riding experience to keep my options open but we shall see.


Couple of Dealership Images, Will post some fresh ones when I get the Bike...

Now we're talking. This is my preferred era of motorcycle. Had 2 fireblades in the past.
The last was a cbr929rr. Had it for 5 years. Always wanted a thou though. Look forward to updates.

So even though I bought the Bike from a Dealership I was able to speak to the previous owner yesterday which was nice, Turns out he is on the same Fireblade Owners Group I go on too.

He has had the Bike since 2018 and has done very little Mileage over those 3 Years, Clearly he has looked after the Bike and there was a few other bits the Bike has had that I didn't know about...

: Brand New Stator/Rectifier fitted this Year that is directly wired to the Battery which eliminates all the Loom Connectors that can cause them to fail in the first place.

: Brand New Battery

: Gilles Shaft Support Bracket which reduces the free play and makes Gearchanges much more positive.

Not sure when the Bike will be delivered, Hoping it will be ready by next Weekend as I on early shifts so can spend some time in the evenings going through everything.

Thanks Andy, Yes the Akro is one of the Best Exhausts you can get for these. Sounds superb too.

Glad you approve, Yes I am a bit of a Fireblade enthusiast myself but only from certain production Years. Not fussed about anything post 2008.

The 2002 CBR954RR's are currently the flavour of the Month and fetching good money, Nobody seemed bothered about them when they came out.

The 929's I think offer the best value for money.

There's no way Simon that it looks 15yrs old!!

I'm confident it'll look BRAND new when you've worked your magic on it fella.

Its here!

Every now and again days go just how you want them to, Worked early this morning and halfway through my shift got the call to say the Bike was ready for delivery.

I had been home 20 Mins and the Van pulled up outside

Just want to say that Jordan Bikes who I have been dealing with now for a number of Years have really gone above and beyond, In addition to the Major Service they have done on the Bike and removing the Alarm they have also fitted a Brand New Chain & Sprockets free of charge as their Technician said there was a couple of tight links and they wanted it right for me so replaced the lot. Superb!

As always, The bike was put straight onto the Ramp in the Garage and the deep cleaning commenced. Spent around 5 Hours this Afternoon on the Bike and its not yet finished.

Not found anything unexpected on the Bike, It does have the odd age related mark but its 15 Years old so this is no surprise. It is already looking much better after a bit of TLC.

So far I have...

: Removed the Lower Fairings ready for deep cleaning tomorrow.
: Removed the Rear Hugger & Chain Guard, All Degreased, Cleaned and refitted.
: Rear Swingarm area all Degreased.
: Front Engine Area & Exhaust Cleaned, ACF-50 Applied.
: LHS Rear Set removed, Full degreased, New Genuine Footpeg fitted as old item was damaged slightly.
: Replaced RHS R&G Frame Bobbin, It was slightly scuffed from the previous owner getting the Bike down the side of his house. Did its job and protected the Fairing.
: Fitted some R&G Paddock Stand Bobbins, Found these in my toolbox.
: Replaced x 5 of the M6 Fairing Panel Push Clips.

Its coming on, Will be doing some more on the bike over the coming days.

Some pics of todays efforts...
