Fireblade Engine Upgrade (893cc -> 1000cc)

Hi all,

My MK Indy is currently running an 893cc lump from a CBR900RR. I am thinking of upgrading it to a newer CBR1000RR motor to get some more poke and wondered how much of my existing set up can be utilized for the new engine? I.e. are there any parts that I could re-use (engine cradle/exhaust/prop etc) or will it all need replacing to fit the newer engine?

If anyone has done this upgrade any advice would be much appreciated!

I'm starting to build a checklist of bit's I'll need to replace/source so I can start shopping

Thanks.

AB Performance will be the place to speak too.

I would guess possibly the propshaft might work,but everything else will need changing to match new lump.

Thanks.

I guess if that's the case I might as well go the whole hog and go Busa Gen 2 ... or even ZZR14

Better engine though so that's a bonus.

Is it really worth it to upgrade it.

Better with dyno jet kit and forced induction box instead in my opinion.

Cost of the change will outweigh the benefits won't it?





Thanks

It won't be cheap but a cbr1000 is getting on for 180hp compared to 120ish for a 919, so i'd say it'd be a noticeable change and worth it! However, I might be trying to justify it to myself as I have just bought a cbr1000 package to replace my 954 engine...

Hi chap a bloke call chesire bike breakers have got a complete package,

ebay item number. 202272836057

that is who i brought my engine package off,
if you do the change over and need a hand give me a shout as there is a few
trick you need to do to bypass all the item that are no longer going to be attached to the
ecu,
side stand, abs, clutch switch also a few more that needs to be done,

i also figured out how to use a abs ecu and bypass it so its not on the clock also not affecting
the ecu and power...

Hard to get sump for zzr1400 and parts as people have moved away from that engine,
also the power from cbr1000rr and the weight of engine compared to busa id go cbr all day long
! plus price of good busa is to
expensive compared to 3k package for cbr1000rr lump the dry sump is like 1500 plus for busa after you have
spent 5k+ on engine package!
