Cb1000r
« on: 08/13/12 03:53PM »
Just got 2012 cb100r very happy however there doesn't seem to be a large following of this bike. I have put about 3000 miles on it and it has tons of torque tons of fun falls a little flat on the top end but I shouldn't be up there anyhow
I want to do the exhaust however it's so expensive. Yosh is 450 pc is 3 something and forget about finding a smog block off. Does the block off kit for the 07 cbr1000r work?  Akrapovic 600 plus pc.
I want to be heard but I don't want to much right now I'm leaning towards yosh r77d and pc or bazZaz
Thoughts, opinions. anyone done one yet?

You could probably make a sufficient block off plate yourself with a bit of steel flat stock, some gasket maker, and either a dremel or air cutoff wheel.

The cb1000r is suppose to be the 2007 cbr1000r motor that's why I asked about a smog block off for that bike.

I was thinking of waiting however wanted to get input from people who had possibly done the mods the exhaust is so quiet and I ride to downtown la everyday and just like a little noise to keep them off me
As for my thoughts if I don't get any real world feedback I'm just going to order new plates and cut and weld them as block offs as I understand it that would be the only way to get the correct air fuel for custom mapping
Anyhow haven't pulled the trigger yet

Not everyone here is willing to make their own parts.  I am all for this =)  Did the block off plates on my speed triple.  Except I did my gaskets out of the gasket paper and used RTV gasket maker on that. 

Kalani, your best bet is to open her up and look at if it's the same shape ports for the block offs and order accordingly.  Those exhaust prices are normal too.  Just save up for the one that you want.  Do it right the first time.

Again thanks for the feedback that's where I'm at too going to wait a bit to buy the exhaust as I don't have an extra 1000 right now but I will take pics and do a step by step and reply to this post check back in oct. in the meantime I will keep researching the Internet maybe check the uk for mods since they have had the bike since 2008

If your reason for changing out your exhaust is so you can be more "visible" on the road you might want to do a little research first. If it's for the cool factor then knock your socks off but don't disillusion yourself into thinking it'll make you safer.
Owning a liter bike is like owning a pet tiger. If you know it's a tiger and you treat it like it's a tiger you'll probably be OK. If you start treating it like a house cat then it will likely maul you, possibly to death.

Doing the flapper mod will make it a lil more louder without too much work

Wow, looks spectacular in matte black..  Sinister.  Possible Duc Streetfighter killer..?

Stay safe on that beast!

That is pretty. It doesn't look like a typical Honda. Matte black is beautiful. I wonder how hard it is to keep clean though. :(

CBRs are revered for their awesome mid-range. It won MotoUSA's superbike (track) shootout two years in a row. . .until the BMW100RR came on the scene. Top-end bliss has traditionally belong to the likes of kawi and the indomitable Gixxer :-)
