2003 CBR600RR


Recommended Posts

A mate has just had a 15 mph crash on his previously mint 10,000 mile CBR600RR.

Someone stopped unexpectedly mid corner in front of him, he tucked the front when nearly stopped.

Minor fairing scuffs, but the "Crash Protector" has cracked the engine casings.

So probably an insurance write off.

Just thinking out loud, I have a lightly crashed 2004 Hornet 600 that was being made into a track day bike in a mates unit when Covid struck and halted progress. Not touched it in a year. Realistically, as I have got side tracked building other projects, I may never do anything with the Hornet.

How close is a 2004 Hornet engine to a 2003 CBR600RR ?

If mate fancies a project with the salvage ?

The 2004 Hornet engine is based on the older CBR600 motor. It didn't get the RR lump until later.

Sounds like we have a mutual acquaintance, guy I work with, was described exactly that same accident, to one of his mates,  at work this week, take it your mate lives Burton on Trent way.

Buy back or whatever, fire it up. It's a no lose situation, so obviously depends where the crack is, but I would want to know, depending where etc, if its actually a gona or not.. It may potentially be possible to fix the crack by someone who has the 'skillz' and run it again..
