Bought a third bike on Wednesday. 2021 Honda CBR600RR. Some form of aftermarket exhaust, very short carbon fiber can. LOUD. Intake and tuned. 1850 miles. Very BAD-ASS bike. Maybe more bad-ass than my B-King. Friend was going to buy it. Told him, if he didn't, I would. He didn't. LOL!!

I'll post some pics soon. Got to stop riding it in order to post pics. LMAO!!

B-King's current state is 215 hp for 1340 cc. This 600 is 140 for 600 cc (stock is 121 hp). Do the math. 280 hp for 1200 cc. Likely close to 300 for 1340 cc. It barks when I rev it! Light and very flickable. Great bike for a VERY FIT 61 year old.

If you don't have time to do it right will you have time to do it over?
Am I the only one who doesn't know what a B-King is?
My parents both rode Indians. My father considered Indians, Triumphs, BSA's, and Norton's motorcycles, other than that Hardly Ableson built trucks. Honda, Yamaha, and Kawasaki were "Jap bikes" and didn't count.

No, Archie was too wishy washy. We got along a lot better after his throat cancer surgery because he couldn't talk. He survived getting thrown out of Catholic school for hitting a nun after she hit him, he survived the depression, he survived WW II- including driving a Jeep out of a landing craft on D-Day, but he didn't survive cigarettes.

A B-King is a Hayabusa 1340 cc motor in a street fighter style chassis. Mine has a Yoshimura exhaust (best aftermarket bike exhausts ever), K & N filter in a box modified for ram air, and tuned via a Dynojet Power Commander V. Mine is north of 200 hp and scary fast.

I'll get some pics of the new race bike today. Been out riding it as often as I can, but rain is in the forecast today.

B-Kings were only available in the U.S. in 2008. Rest of the world, 07 - 15.

They're really rare. Until my friend bought this one in 2010, I'd never seen one. Never seen another. When my friend asked if I wanted to buy it, I said Hell yeah. Already had multiple offers to buy it for 8 grand. I paid six for it in 2017. Can't buy parts for it in the states. Have to go abroad to get them. Talking aftermarket parts here. We only got the bike here in 2008. Overseas, 2007-2015.

And I always thought that B-King was Mickey D's competition.
Bwahaha. Burger King. LOL!.

There's a story to the name. In 2002, Suzuki dropped a concept bike called the Boost King. Hayabusa motor with a supercharger behind it. Everyone begged Suzuki to make the bike. So they did, in 2007. MINUS THE SUPERCHARGER. Renamed it B-King. A lot of people refused to buy the bike because of that. But believe me, it doesn't need it. Very easy to make major power with this motor. Only problem is, the bike is heavy. Near 600 pounds with the FUGLY stock exhaust. 550 or so with an aftermarket exhaust. Hayabusa had ram air, B-King did not. But it's easy to change. K & N filter, Yoshimura exhaust, Dynojet Power Commander V running a 20% richer mixture. easy to go well past 200 hp. Then just HOLD ON TIGHT!

It’s impressive they managed to make the exhaust weigh over 50lbs on a motorcycle.
If we ignore cats, I wouldn’t even expect a car exhaust to weigh 50lbs.

Although ford used some pretty heavy exhaust tube from the factory.

The full exhaust on the M109R weighs nearly 80 pounds. It has two very large and long mufflers, a catalytic converter, a computer controlled exhaust throttle and is double thick due to heat shields on the entire thing. And it's one piece. It was a pain to get off when I swapped it for a Cobra Tri Pro in 2010.

The twin mufflers on the B-King from the factory is a YUGE FUGLY contraption. Yeah, it weighed quite a bit. Aftermarket exhausts are very minimalist and don't have huge baffles like factory stuff does.

Even the CBR600RR I just purchased had a YUGE muffler up under the tail. I don't know what it weighed, as the bike came with a very small carbon fiber canister style muffler. Yeah, it's kind of loud. I'll get some pics today. It rained all day yesterday.
