Well after 6 years the Fireblade has to go, well sort of. It's worth more in bits so out come the spanners and a few hours on ebay.
Shame to sell it of in bits but needs must.

I bought a GiPro off eBay but it had no plug fitted for the bike.
I also found the plug i needed was the same shape as the Honda Hiss antenna, as i had one spare off comes the plug.
Factory DCL red plug, Hiss Plug and Gipro bare wires.
Honda Hiss plug i needed.
Fitted and ready to go.
They only place i could find to fit the display was on the side of the meter cover,
So time to made a template then make a bracket on our 3D printer.
Remove the nose cone, unbolt the HiSS screw ( just a little )
make in thin alloy sheet,
Bend into shape and test fit,
Fitted and working.

New Carbon Seat unit, Rad sides, Front Guard and meter cover fitted.

- W. 25 mm x H. 11 mm x D. 14,5 mm,
- rubber stem L. 11 mm
- M8 threaded bolt.
We have these LISTED
And fitted.. ( made some carbon mounts as well )
We spotted on the CB1000R forum a chap who had swapped his wheels over to the newer VFR800 and it looked good so the hunt was on.
After a year of looking whe part are all in. total spend on this was £670.
VFR800 2014 > wheels, we had to buy the full swing are as the dealer would not split ( you only need the rear spindle ) VFR800 front wheel spacer.
Quick and simple job,
- Supprt your bike with an Abba Stand,
- Remove your rear wheel,
- Rear caliper
- Spindle nut,
- Slide out the spindle
Then replace with the New VFR800 5 stud spindle and replace all above parts.
Front wheel >
- Buy a new VFR800 wheel spacer 1x ( both the same size on the 800 )
- Remove your calipers,
- Front wheel,
- Brake Discs,
next the tricky bit.
The CB1000R brake disc is a 6 bolt fixing, the new VFR800 wheel has a 5 bolt fixing.
The CB1000R has a 12mm off set and the VFR800 is only 8mm.
Option 1, Buy VFR800 disc and make a 4mm spacer to fit behind the disc.
Option 2. Fit the CB1000R disc and re drill 4x holes.
Oprion 3. Fit VFR1200 Discs as have correct bolts, offset and size.
When the discs are fitted >
- Offer up the new wheel,
- Replace the standard smaller wheel spacer with the VFR800 spacer
- Replace the spindle
- Replace the calpers
