I guess I should have done this first. Mods didn't approve my first post.
Anyway, long and short....In January, we purchased a wrecked 2013 CBR 500R to rebuild it into a race bike.
My stepson will be riding this bike in the Canadian National series in the Amateur Lightweight class. This class is loosely based on the MA Junior Cup. He will be racing against Ninja 400's and R3's.
Class limits for the Ninja 400 and R3's are as follows : Max 42 rwhp Min 320lbs
Limit for the CBR is Max 45 rwhp Min 360lbs
The kid is a regional lightweight champ, winning both lightweight classes and also capturing top amateur and top teenage rider of the year in 2018. I may be biased, but I think he's got a really good shot with this bike.
I will post a build thread with pictures.
