‘08 onwards blades

Recommended Posts

I’ve got a hankering for a 2008 onwards fireblade/cbr1000rr or whatever you prefer to call them. I know about the crank issue on the earlier ones, but other than that is there much to look out for on them, any common faults etc?

I've on my second one now and I had the first 4 or 5 years. It trackdays only so they don't get quite the same hammer as racing but I've never had any gearbox issues and the first one had a mongrel of an engine from a breaker with no history. In fact it needed nothing, not even a clutch in 4 or 5 seasons of trackdays (in the fast group usually lapping at a mid-pack club pace) However I don't use a quickshifter. My current one is an ex-SMT superstock bike and I've disconnected the Bazzaz quickshifter so hopefully no gearbox woes here either.
