So after a pretty unsuccessful round at silverstone, it was time to show the bike a little bit of tlc.
The bike is a 2004 Honda CBR 600 rr, It’s a little long in the tooth but its reliable and relatively forgiving.
It’s running a Maxton rear shock and fork internals, accossato master cylinder with bendix pads, Ses rear sets, quick action throttle and a power commander 3. Putting out only 108 bhp its probably one of the slowest bikes out on the grid but this just means to have to push more in corner entry and exit to make up for it.
So after Silverstone we had to find out the cause for the bike thinking it was a triple.
The bike must have lost some fluid during the crash in qualifying as the rad was under half filled. This would have been the cause of the running hot.
The hot running was making the fan work over time to make, the crash must have also shaken the loom loose as this now rested on the back of the fan.
So the fan chewed through the loom to the coil tube stopping one of the cylinders getting any spark.
Just £15 later for a new loom, some cable ties to tuck it out the way and some water for the rad and now ready to fight again.
We also added some graphics to make it stand out a little more.
Lets us know what you think and hopefully we will see you at Brands Hatch!
