    Just found this site and have already received help. Many thanks!
    Proud owner of lovely, low mileage 2009 Repsol Fireblade. Such a lovely and fast bike! Battery is rubbish though and have had to replace it after just 9 months use despite loving care with an Optimate +3

    Looking forward to learning more about members and their experiences and advice with their Fireblades

    Hi DR, helped you already eh, bloody hell, you normally have to be abused by us for weeks before we're of any real use to you. Well done.

    Enjoy your stay with us.

    I have a couple of requests for help for you experienced members. I would like to replace my existing hugger with a more stylish carbon fibre version. Does anyone have tips on the best place (and price) to buy one?
    Secondly, having finally removed the seat retaining bolts (has Honda upgraded/ re-designed them on the newer Fireblades?), I want to swap them to a hexagon head. Martin gave me this idea. Can you tell me how to describe them and where to buy these superior replacement bolts please?
    Thanks again guys.
    DR
