forgot to mention this is the last post.... aren't the calipers actually GP4-RS? I was talking to LDH about the stock calipers when I was buying the pads and he mentioned the stock ones were really good on the gen 5's because they are very similar to the GP4-RX's.....just no nickel bling...

and yeah, I actually have that zeta lever on my shortlist....along with that Suter swingarm (soon as I win the lottery)

Im curious how much power you had on your old cbr?

I have a gen 3 zx 10r and saw that you had your damper sent away to be modified, what exactly did they do?You have 2 pics , 1 of a black on but a silver one on the bike.I think my damper is manual but the new ones can be modified by the ecu?

I had a few really nice motors for the cbr. When I bought the bike, it had the HRC headwork done to it and was tuned by Dick Suarez of Full Spectrum Racing and was putting down 170Hp. Then I stumbled on a deal for a fully built Erion motor. Had that bad boy tuned and it put down 182HP on MR12. If I would have refreshed it, I probably would have seen around 190hp or so but I knew eventually Iíd be rocking a new iron horse so I didnít feel like wasting all that coin on an old bike...it was fast enough for what it was.


The black one was the stock electronic damper. When I bought the bike, the plug was ripped out of the side of the damper when the previous owner crashed it so it was unusable. Mike at Dan Kyle Racing told me I can just buy one of the previous gen 10r ohlins dampers and he can refresh it with a new seat and needle that provides more damping, versus the stock ones that come on the 10rís and 6rís.

Hereís the link for that service:

I saw your 4th picture in the first post and thought to myself "is that the end of the pit wall at RA?" That was before I looked back and saw the picture (or 2) at Blackhawk and knew you lived in the Midwest.
The master that you got with the bike is def not stock, I believe they are Nissin MC on Gen 4 and Brembos on the Gen 5 (all Brembo braking on Gen 5 including discs).
When you mounted the red chain holder onto the swingarm did you have to add another threaded hole? or are those already there for the rear fender/tire hugger?

I look forward to seeing the progression of the bike, especially when you didnt have a whole complete bike to begin with. Hopefully I can get to see the bike in person at RA or Blackhawk this coming summer.

Ah, just saw that a few pages back. Do you have to trim the lowers to fit the Graves low-mount exhaust?

I have the same body that's how I know. Not sure about the low mount but Armour bodies are pretty good about not cutting or trimming. Hell, even my kickstand would still work on the bike with the belly pan on. The mounting holes were right where they need to be and if you find center with a drill bit this body bolts on very easy. Maybe a 15-20 minute job to mount! If your thinking of going with a Woodcraft body you won't be dissapointed!

Yeah, I did RA with the ol 1000RR and then did one last day at BHF before retiring the cbr. I'm in Waukesha so I'm right in the middle of RA and BHF which is awesome!

Yeah, the master didn't look right when I bought the bike so I got a little upgrade for it...

I just drilled a hole next to the oem mudflap mounting point and smacked in a threaded insert in there to secure the chain holder. You could probably get by with just the one that holds the mudflap down but I figured I'd safety wire the two screws to each other.

Just met with the doctor the other day and they are thinking 6-9 months of physical therapy so I'm hoping to hit that hard so I can at least make it to the track by the middle or end of the season. I got "Hoppa" on the back of my suit so if ya see me, come say hi!

Can't confirm the graves exhaust with the woodcraft fairings...however, my buddy had a set of fairings from a different manufacturer and he had to cut a half moon shape at the back corner of the lower.

yeah, I agree, the fitment was great on these...everything lined up perfectly. I just wish the fairings didn't have a hole to use the middle frame mount bolt. So annoying to have all DZUS fittings and then that one stupid bolt. Also contemplating a front quick release design for the fairing stay since that requires four bolts as well. I tend to work on my bike more than I ride it due to stupid work getting in the way of my fun so quick release is my best friend.
