The cbr1100xx Blackbird
97-98 only

The original super slick Honda powerhouse. When I first dynoed one, I stopped at 7000 rpm because, for some reason it was already making a 100 True hp.
 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!
Woohoo!

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

Adds more low-end / midrange, if the proper main jet is selected, more top-end power. Easy to install and tune - no slide drilling!

These kits are smoother than the dynojet kits and are the general first choice in tuning kits by those who have compared.

Feedback
Hello, I'm from TURKEY and I would like to share my experience with my cbr1100xx Honda blackbird.
     I bought the JET KIT on the net. After received it I was astonished by the equipment supplied. Titanium needlles,2x142,4x145,4x148 main jets. Steel allen screws for the float bowls and documents/guides etc...
     I couldn't wait to install the kit. When I started installing the jets were 142 out,145 in.I tried 145 in,148 out butt was good when cold but went worse when hot. I turned back to the original settings with the needles in the second(2nd)clip.Then it was too lean; it was bad when cold but better when hot but still good at mid and top end. I finally tried the third position/clip. The  result was amazing. As I had cleaned the carb I had a sync. Afterwards. I have difficulty to calm the bird now. I have BMC air filter, Micron 4.1 exhaust and iridium plugs. I am nixing plans to change the original pilot jets (K42) to K44 to gain power at low rpm. Hope this will help or encourage others installing the kit as it really works. I did it myself. Didn't dyno but the power spread through the entire rpm band.
Thanks FP that they provided such a great drop in set.
     Nice regards

Ignition Timing Rotors, fixed and adjustable


RTR-HON-8-04    $109.95

The RTR-HON-8-04 kit advances the timing 4 degrees. With stock engines with stock compression ratios, there is more power everywhere. Part throttle power is better - helping corner exit speeds. Improved in-town drivability. A nice, simple install with normal hand tools. Just  remove the right side pulser cover and the 14mm headed rotor bolt. The new F-Pro rotor only goes on one way.


Note!!!
The RTR-HON-8 series advance rotor DOES NOT include the cover gasket, oem#
11391-MAT-000 GASKET, PULSER COVER that fits the XX!!! The kit only includes the cbr600/900 gasket and the XX cover gasket is different!

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.
   


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.

I recently purchased a Factory Jet Kit for my Honda Blackbird (carbureted).
Can you please tell me your recommendations on the best settings if I'm after maximum power.
Don't really care if my fuel consumption goes up.
Thanks.

Hi Robby -
Best Power is where the bike should be jetted.
Mileage will be pretty good if you also have Best Power.
If mileage is 20% worse, it's not properly tuned to Best Power. It's too rich.
See! :-) The real answer is that there's not a big difference between Best Power and Best mileage!

re: CRB-H75-1.0 carb recalibration kit and RTR-HON=8=02  +2 advance kit.

Thanks, Marc for your kit for the XX. The install was simple and what a relief to not have to drill out the slides AKA dynojet install.

The performance improvement has shocked me, especially since the exhaust and air filter remain stock. Based on my initial results, I am nixing plans to change the exhaust system (noise preference) since I already have a hard
time hanging on under WOT.

I followed the recommended specs exactly, changing the outside jets to 142, and leaving the inside mains at 142, and setting the needles to the second slot from the top. I then seated the pilots and backed each out the recommended 2 1/2 turns, and reassembled.

Have you ever dynoed this configuration (stock pipe, air and kits) - and what was the delta? We do not have the Eddy here, only the dynojet deceiver.

P.S. the gasket that came with the ignition advance did not fit. I used Hi-Temp RTV copper successfully, tho.

Note: The supplied gasket is for the cbr600/900. You need to supply your own XX gasket. Cheers! Marc

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.
