    Kit's CB1000R (Eala)

    Hi all,
    thought I will share some picture of ride here.

    So I have join the CB1000R club a few weeks ago, after an idiot driver took me out on the M25 and totalled my bike. Was going to get a fireblade but looking at something more easy to slow on like town riding and though the CB is what i need

    This is her at the start


    After a clean and got rid of all the boring stickers:


    and also noted from the manual if I don't follow instruction I can be hurted(Reference Lego Movie, if you haven seen it WATCH IT)




    After a few weeks of riding on the stock exhaust and not being noticed when filtering, I have decided to get an exhaust.
    Fitted it today and damn bike came alive!!!! not the power but the weight saving is immense, it handle so much quicker now

    Lovely bike.... just like mine !!! I too have the Ixil and your right its a massive weight difference and sounds a lot louder (ie safer) as well, did you take every sticker off.... even teh ABS one on the front mudguard ?

    Look again, young sir.

    ABS rotor just visible in the bottom right hand corner. Non-radial calipers too.

    She have ABS, not really what I wanted but it might just save my life one day while commuting.

    It did kicked in a few times tho without I wanted it to, and with ABS I did find it a bit harder to settle the bike into corner when trail braking and when trying to backing it into corners it just won't have any of it.
    Just wondering can the ABS be adjusted?


    Thanks for the compliment guys

    I think the ixil is one of the few slip on options available without re-mapping the bike?
    and IMO its the best option because a big part of getting this slip on is to save weight and without carrying a lamppost everywhere :P
    Thanks to wilko for the exhaust, I just can't justify buying a new one on the CB as I am using it more to commute than anything at the moment.

    Your right about the ABS, i found it hard to find mine WITH it on, most were non abs, i commute on mine and wanted the extra safety net that it gives, however good a rider you think you are its that emergency grab of the brake that we will all do when something unexpected happens.... its this moment that the abs will pay for it's self.
