My '17 CBR500R.

Hi all,

I'm the happy owner of a beautiful candy orange 2017 CBR500R. I use it as my daily driver year round and she currently sits at 47K kilometers. She's had regular maintenance at the recommended intervals and has always performed beautifully.

Usage consist of daily commute (80km round trip), cross Holland work trips (280km single way), touring the Dutch countryside and weekend trips to Paris and beyond.

Mods include:
16T front sprocket
Akrapovic exhaust
Adjustable shorty levers
Baracuda blinkers
Dark tinted windscreen
Fender eliminator
K&N hi-flow airfilter
Oxfords heated grips
RAM mount (sliding-spring case, not X-grip)
Throttle booster
Tires: Michelin pilot road 4

With regards,
Dutch500

Dutch,
What throttle booster are you running? I assume that refers to a kind of quick throttle - right?

I'm using a regular throttle clamp-on style "booster". It is not a quick throttle in the original sense of reducing the throttle radius. But it definitely makes opening her up easier.
Primarily I use it as a quality-of-life item. On longer rides it really saves your hands from cramping or tingling when touring for hours on end.
Also helps with gas economy, as it allows for a more constant speed for regular cruising.



For under ten euros its probably the highest reward per euro addition (can hardly call it a mod) I put on the bike.


Pretty much like this one:
