    YW, loved my 954, great Blade, but really wanted an earlier carb’ed model. Looking to hold on to it for a few years at present.
    The RRR just cuts it a bit more for me than the RRN/P, with the component changes and bodywork, and less BS around future speculative prices.

    Finally arrived on the doorstep last night, exactly what I had hoped it would look like, a modern take on the OEM can, and as close to the OEM length as possible, and the max length sleeve they could build.
    Always pleased with the quality of their cans, at a price that’s hard to beat. Will try to get it mounted but thanks to my buggered knee crawling around is painful, and even then can’t ride until the NHS get around to fixing it, which is the biggest frustration.

    After a while of looking and watching urban tigers runaway with prices I finally viewed and bought the rrx that Torbay motorcycles also had. Not my first choice of colour but completely standard and same owner since new it was a great buy. They dropped it off yesterday. Lovely build quality over my 2011 blade I had. Few areas for improvement to keep me busy in the winter.

    Rocket I had one of those. Picked it up brand new from CJ Ball in 1999. Loved it and you are right about the build quality.

    Got round to fitting the can today, everything’s taking 3 times as long with my buggered knee, pleased with the look, just what I was looking for, modern take on the OEM look, nice deep tone, just a real downer probably won’t be fit enough to ride it again until next year

    This one brought a few smiles to my face today, owned from 2 years old, 25 years, still turns heads (mainly due to the noise :)) AEF38BE3-BDFD-4DC4-9785-3B83E0441AB6.jpeg

    Thank you, it’s not quite a 1000, but it’s a Fireblade
