So i’m sure you have all heard of Safety Re-Calls right? Well if not, a Safety Recall is where a Vehicle is called back for essential repairs/replacement parts when a manufacturer has released a vehicle with one or many faulty components.
This work is FREE OF CHARGE to you!
When you book in with us for any service, we check your motorcycle for Safety Re-Calls, no matter its age. Luckily for this customer, we checked his 2002 Honda CBR929RR Fireblade for Saftey Re-Calls, and guess what, we found a very serious fault indeed. The serious issue lies with the front forks cracking where the casting meets the tubes! Potentially fatal fault!
With our excellent relationship with all manufacturers as a Quality Recognised workshop, Honda are sending us the parts and paying the bill to put this bike right!
We will upload photos as we do the front suspension Safety Re-Call.
Now, another fault with the CBR929RR is the ‘HTEV’ aka Power valve or ‘EXUP’ Valve in the exhaust system.
The bike came in to us running real rough and displaying a ‘Fuel Injection Fault,’ our expertise diagnosis found the ‘HTEV’ to be at fault.
Basically, the ‘HTEV’ controls a valve flap in the exhaust that opens at high RPM and closes at low RPM, to apparently give better low RPM grunt, but in fact its just there to lower the noise for EU Legislation, The Government lying hey, who’d of thought it?!
The ‘HTEV’ notoriously fail on these bikes, causing a huge repair bill when using OEM parts.
So we can offer a solution that is proven to gain BHP, gain MPG and also sound a lot better with a much happier, cooler running engine. Plus it is over half the price of the OEM Replacement parts.We remove the horrible old heavy Power Valve assembly and replace it with a Hand Made Stainless steel straight through replacement. We then remove the faulty old Servo unit with a programmed black box to keep the engine management sweet. Bike now back together running better than it did straight off the production line! Another happy customer with his bike awesome sounding bike!
