  1. Hi all, Slowly but surely working to get the Megablade I acquired 2 months ago where I want it to be. I have overcome most of the inherited issues and I'm now looking to make simple improvements without taking it off the road. The bigger jobs, rewire and general overhaul will happen over the winter in preparation for what I hope to be a busy track day schedule next year. My next step is to look at the engines air supply. Currently it just has RamAir socks over each carb. My concern is that these will suck up all the warm air from under the bonnet and there is no real air feed... just the freedom for carbs to suck air in as needed. I prefer the idea of a forced air feed similar to what the engine gets when in a bike. I have acquired the standard fireblade air box which fits under the V8 bonnet when mounted upside down. I have an air scoop with pipe on the nose cone that can feed this but still not sure if it's the best option. I have thought about adding a second scoop to feed the second airbox inlet. Plan B is the pipercross px600 airbox. Does anyone use this and what are your thoughts on it? Fire away with your suggestions and images of your intake solutions.

    Hi everybody

    Hi everybody, From Sunny Portugal. Time to introduce myself.. My name's Ivor and I'm a Motoholic. After a long year of looking and a couple of near misses, I think I'm finally in the club! Some of you know the Megablade turbo built by John Cobb (who I hear is a bit of a master). Now Megablade CBR1000RR, as its graced these pages a few times under the guardianship of various skilled hands. I am currently trying to negotiate the post brexit fangle of getting a car transported from the UK, to Portugal. There now seems to be all sorts of tax and import implications. If anyone out there has any recommendations for a transport firm or any ideas that legally avoid me spending 10 days in isolation in a travel lodge to come and get it I'd love to hear them. I haven't got the patience to wait until mid May, by which time they say Portugal may be off the red list and I would no longer need to quarantine in a hotel at £1750.00.
  3. Resilient tube two-piece prop shaft taken off my Megablade to re-fit the old reverse box, new in July 2019. From a Fireblade gearbox to a (I think) Sierra diff, there's a couple of photos of flange dimensions to help out but if anyone wants further dimensions, just let me know. £300 collection from south Wales, just north of Cardiff or I can post/ courier at cost.
  4. not a good start to the day, spun out at hall bends, trashed the brand new steering rack. Stirling effort by all mange to rebuild her and make both races

Since owning this vehicle I have covered approximately 2000 Miles in 3 Years. I have only ever driven it in dry weather. When not in use it is stored in a well ventilated garage under a breathable cover hence the chassis is in very good condition for its age with very little corrosion. The bodywork is painted in RAL 2009 Traffic Orange and is overall In very good condition. There are some minor stress cracks in the grp however for an 18 year old vehicle this is to be expected. Great fun on the road and on the track,and a brilliant specification and condition Westfield for your money . As you can see from above, both the engine and gearbox have been rebuilt and a new clutch recently fitted, therefore these major components should keep the new keeper going for some time without major expenditure (many detailed photos available showing internal components during gearbox rebuild/clutch replacement) Reluctantly selling as I now require a more “practical” car with a roof and luggage space for my planned European road trip. Also Included with the sale is a number of spare parts if required including original mirrors, two spare wishbones etc. Depending on your offer I may also throw in a CTEK battery conditioner, used Halfords Advanced all weather breathable car cover and the remainder of my WSSC subscription (if you don’t already have a subscription) which I have just renewed!

    Megablade play in transmission

    Hi I have just bought a Megablade and using it have noticed there is a bit of slack on the transmission, I have jacked it up and selected it in gear, you can turn the rear wheel about 2" before it grabs the gear if that makes sense, it is fitted with the Quaffe reverse box and just wondered if this was normal or something I should be worried about?
