I'd like to see these...but I can't get any pics to show in any thread on Tapatalk. This is what I see.

You can see here from the vendor's website

Also, if you just use a browser and hit this forum website from your phone, you will see it, too. Tapatalk has a problem.

Have just rolled through 615 miles. Time for oil + filter.

Replaced oil filter with Honda OEM and used Motul 5100 4T oil.
Looks like Thor did not tighten the filter can at the factory this time and it was a breeze to remove with my trusted oil filter claw.

Again, no fairings to deal with and blood pressure is under control. :ROFLMAO::coffee:

Just out of curiosity, I went to check Revzilla and 1 gallon of Motul 5100 4T has gone passed $52 now. It's getting expensive to do oil change, even using your own labor.

Amazon has the same oil for $45....

But still, your point is heard.

The oil I just used was bought in late 2020 in bulk when there was sale. At that time, it was like ~ $40.
Today, I just happened to use Revzilla as a data point. Glad AMZN has better pricing.

I just purchased the same oil from Amazon moments ago for $45 just so I could get it before there's a price increase. I'm doing my first oil change on Sunday...not quite at the 600 mark. But I'm using Honda GN4 dino for my first change. No reason....just because. I'll use the 5100 on my next one after that.

Now that the engine is done breaking-in (officially), I know from experience with my CBR1000RR SP and my Ninja 1000SX, it took a few thousand miles to really settle in. I did notice that high rev sounds are beginning to feel and sound like butter. This is what this engine is all about.

So far, I have no need to drop a gear when I overtake at speeds above 55 MPH. The engine's behavior has a similar feel compared to the CBR1000RR.

The lower RPM torque curve is non-linear and steeper in its initial climb compared to the CBR. Have to get used to this non-linear characteristic.

In the early days of promoting the CB1000R, Honda themselves said that the CB was quicker to 100 kph than the CBR, just cuz the torque came on at lower rpm; and torque x rpm = HP, so under about 7000 rpm the CB actually makes MORE power than the CBR! of course, in the upper rpm range, things change.... fast!

Yup, the truth cannot be ignored when we examine the two torque curves ...

Jump on a graph and race it off the line :D
I'll select "rain mode" on the SP and still smoke an OEM NSC.
I'm thinking your riding skills are higher than mine and so you are able to manage high acceleration better to experience that on the CBR1000RR SP.
My 2005 CBR1000R is a Euro bike and the ECU is quite unrestricted and has a PC5 map. The lower RPM is quite violent, so I have to be careful.
