I've recently installed a Woolich Autotune to my CBR '17. After overwriting the ECU with a mapshare downloaded from their site and having completed the 5th Autotune run, I can honestly say this bike is now quite a handful. Substantial difference from stock. If Honda were to bring out a future model with over 215HP stock, wow I'd like to see it, I think Honda actually needs it.Someone say over 215 , but i don´t remember who was ....
Dave. I saw that you looked in not long ago but it's ages since you posted anything. Are you OK, what with this virus and all ?Got out today for a nice little ride [and with the current weather I'll be out again for the next 3 days with a bit of luck]
Here's a couple of pictures, got a Yoshi tail tidy now as well as black V Trec levers and a silver Pro bolt oil filler cap -it's the little details that matter.
Hi mate,Dave. I saw that you looked in not long ago but it's ages since you posted anything. Are you OK, what with this virus and all ?
This new look forum is a bit odd. Lardy, who hasn't posted for years is admin.Hi mate,
Sorry I've only just seen your post - all is well thanks ! I'm just so busy with work that I end up knackered in the evenings, not getting any younger I suppose. I'm going to make the effort and post some more on here.
Probably a BOT in control .Lol. At least I'm not getting any human reactions to my questions.-🚾Haha I know as much as you on that mate, the trouble is being so busy with my work which also eats into the evenings sometimes and I don't have the time/energy to keep up with everything.Someone must be maintaining the site though.
Thank you for the information, much appreciatedOk mate, well my '08 is more linear in the power delivery but it builds steady and strong as the revs rise with no noticeable 'dips' in the progress. It has an 'old' PC III, BMC air filter and Akra can with de-cat and fuelling seems spot on, sounds lovely too. It handles very well and is really nice to ride having 'fine tuned' suspension settings over the years- so it's comfortable but firm . I still love this bike and at least 7 out of 10 people who comment prefer the look to the NSC !
The newer CB has a much stronger feel from 6-7k revs, more sportsbike like with a definite top end 'rush' - although there was a horrible lag between say 4-5k rpm until I fitted the Rapidbike - which has improved that drastically.
So it feels a bit more of a beast and lighter too. Again the handling is very good although a little harsher over bumps, but I'm still fiddling around with that a bit - and you need quite a while to get to grips with all the features of the fancy dash. The overall quality is as good as anything I've seen although the tank paint could be very easily scratched if you're not very careful, but it's a superb bike in my opinion.
I try to share the miles equally between then - although I also have my 1980 CB250RS project all but finished as well.
But that's another story.
