Honda Fireblade owners - we need you!

To celebrate the 20th anniversary of the iconic, Honda Fireblade, we are working on a feature getting together every model. Honda Fireblades for sale. We’ve managed to get hold of every model except a 1994 Urban Tiger. If you are the proud owner of this model how do you fancy popping along to Brands Hatch on Wednesday 14th March to be part...

sorry, cannot join :(

saving money for the engine oil to run my Fireblade (uses almost 1 litre per thousand miles) and biannual engine rebuilds on my 2010 bike (replacing all valves every other year is normal on these bikes).

Blade

Had a '98 RR-W, it was brilliant.  Should never have sold it.

Happy with my RR8 Blade.

Since buying my RR8 in August 2009 with only 1776 miles up, ive had it serviced every 6,000 miles instead of Honda's 4,000 intervals.[The 09 R1 has 6000 mile services !! So why not ?] Using Castrol Semi Synthetic Oil[GPS 10W-30] Its now on 18,200 miles and it only ever needs a splash of oil now and then to bring it up to the level on the dipstick. infact, i'm still using oil from the 1 litre bottle i asked for as part of the deal when i bought the bike. You can't be too shy with the revs on these bike because their so low geared, so its getting used. Not bounced off the rev limiter or mis-treated when cold but used quite hard.

 Perhaps it was run-in properly? I couldn't say as i'm the second owner. Its my 4th Fireblade and its my best handling bike to date.

I can put-up with  my Blade being a bit unreliable , which it is compared to my 29 year old Goldwing , but it"s so hard to work on . It"s good on petrol ,uses no oil  and  handles great  , but the Mrs. hates it  , too uncomfy  ?. I only use it for nice days out on my own down the local country lanes , hence 13000 miles on a 2000 model . I wanted to move on to a R1  ,but they are too small and feel like a 125 to my 16 stone , over  six foot frame , any way our "Gert" put her  2 pennyworth in again and  said  my mid-life  crisis  will be stretched to buying a Mazda  MX.5 next  ?  as if  ! .

I'm about to buy a 2005 Repsol but I'll be keeping my 97RRV for the daily commute. She's never let me down!
