The cbr1100xx Blackbird

The original super slick Honda powerhouse + FI. When I first dynoed one, I stopped testing because, for some reason it was already making a 100 True hp at 7000 rpm!
 I had to recheck the dyno calibration before I believed it. Fully calibrated 5 minutes later
(I love the EC997 dyno.....) It was still 100 True HP at 7000 rpm!

The original "Full Race Lincoln Continental" and  my favorite sport tourer....

Factory Pro's exclusive
Shift STAR kit


Last lap, last corner, 110 mph, two wheel drift... passing on the outside, bike carefully controlled by just the subtlest of weight transfer and just a "fingers touch" on the throttle... you run out of rpm and need to upshift to complete the pass.... you need to shift.... it's ok.... a tap and you are in the 4th, still in a drift....... you keep slightly pulling... around.... slowly past....
you win. 

OK - So, maybe you don't drive your XX like the above, but - if you wanted the sweetest shifting bike, ever - this is the kit that takes away in-town "clunk" and really lets the bike "snick" sweetly into every up or down shift - This IS the mod that you want.

Virtually eliminates missed shifts.

EVO-7 Shift STAR Kit!
Includes Factory's AWESOME Detent Star - Totally changes the rough shifting the 1100's are known for into the sweetest shifting bike - The one you've always wanted!
Includes: Factory Pro designed, refined and manufactured DETENT STAR, Factory Pro Microbearing Detent Arm, heavy duty detent spring and gasket. Makes shifting quicker and more positive - "virtually" eliminating those nasty missed shifts. The stronger detent spring rotates the shift drum quicker, so the gears are more likely to engage under quick shift conditions - and "lazy" ones, too -
The Factory Pro Microbearing removes friction for the quickest shifting.
The closest to a "paddle shifter" for a motorcycle that you will ever find!!

(fits 98-03)

(add $20 for ceramic bearing)

Hey Marc,
That's pretty cool, thanks. BTW, I fitted the jet and 4 degree advancer on Saturday, used all the specs on the instruction sheet, however, I found the stock jets fitted to my 'bird (Aussie version), were 145's on the outside and 150's for the inside two, no major dramas though, looking at your specs I see you're tuning at ~2500ft, I live and ride mostly at close to sea level and up to maybe 1000ft, with your 142 reference main jets suited to ~2500ft I decided to fit the supplied 145's and use #3 position on the needles, 2 3/4 on the fuel screws, I did a carb synch whilst I was at it and got them all within 5mmHg, it was spot on first up, no more flat spot and throttle response was crisp as, do you have any thoughts?

Thank you. Now I have trouble keeping the front end down in the first two gears when doing a 1/4 mile blast at my local drag strip....;-))

Cheers, and all the best from down under

Dear Sir or madam,

        I'd just like to say thank you for your great service, I ordered some parts from you to be delivered to Sydney Australia, they turned up this morning delivered to my door less than a week later, I wish I could get that sort of service from all of my local suppliers.

Once again, thank you.

Cheers and all the best from down under.

As stated in the earlier email, I have your +4 ign advancer and jet kit. Both are wickedly good products and absolutely transformed the bike. You are welcome to post these comments along with the anticipated "I wish that I had fitted the Factory Pro Evo Shift Kit before I missed a gear and wrecked 4th gear. I had an expensive and time consuming rebuild. I have fitted the Evo kit and the difference in shifting is astounding!"
Regards, Gaz.

Artisan Crafted Fine Cheeses – Since 1865       

Specializing in Handmade Brie & Camembert

Marin French Cheese Co., also known as The Cheese Factory and Rouge et Noir is not just the oldest cheese manufacturer in the country, but a vacationers and day trippers destination as well as a unique part of American History. Located north of San Francisco, east of Napa County, west of Pt. Reyes and Olema and south of Sonoma County, Marin French has produced hand crafted Artisan soft ripened cheese since 1865. Rouge et Noir cheeses are similar to French and European varieties but reflect the characteristics of Northern California, producing it's own regional style.


The extension of the laboratory for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940). He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal use but well preserved.
Edited to the tunes of Chemical Residue by Herbie Hancock.

Maybe in next rewrite, he'll fix the ignition timing and dyno chapters...
Otherwise great book with great starting ideas.
