t'old Blade...

1998 CBR900RRW Fireblade...

Returned home after it's long exile, looks ok, but there's 16 years of accumulated road crap stuck in all the nooks and crannies

After a good wash it was put up on stands and all the body work removed to give the normally hidden bits a good scrub.

Stubborn mudguard bolts didn't want to shift and had to be cut off, resulting in some damage to the mudguard.

Caliper pistons pushed out using a footpump!

Then polished up with the dremel, first time I'd noticed that there's two different sizes of piston.

I started to polish up the OE bolts, got bored and bought some new stainless ones from Ebay.

Some of the new allen bolts.

Even the triple clamp bolts were replaced.

Coming back together...

New stainless screen bolts

The bodywork back on, still the pillion pegs and the can to sort.

Must do something about that mudguard.

Full spec:

Remus Carbon end can, K&N and Dynojet kit, 119 true RWBHP

K-Tech rebuilt front forks with CBR600RR springs
