2005-2006 Honda CBR100RR Stock Image

This is the maintenance schedule and associated service intervals for the 2006-2007 Honda CBR1000RR.

The Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade, known also just as the Honda Fireblade or the ‘Blade affectionately by its owners, was launched in 2004 after replacing the last of the earlier CBR900RR series (called the CBR954RR in some countries, including the US).

The CBR1000RR Fireblade was a big change in 2004, bumping displacement up to 998cc, where it would stay until today.

The 2006 CBR1000RR Fireblade brought with it a few innovations over the earlier 2004-2005 Honda CBR1000RR, including:

  • New intake and exhaust porting (higher flow, reduced chamber volume), and exhaust system
  • Larger 320mm front disc brake
  • Larger 220mm rear disc brake
  • Increased compression ratio from to 12.2:1 from 11.9:1
  • Revised cam timing, with more intake valve lift, and double springs for the intake valves
  • Higher redline — raised to 12,200 rpm from 11,250 rpm
  • Larger rear sprocket for more low-down acceleration
  • Revised geometry and components – lighter swingarm, revised rear suspension

What you need to service the 2006-2007 Honda CBR01000RR

To service your CBR1000RR, aside from general motorcycle maintenance tools, you will need slightly different parts depending on what generation of bike you have.

For the 2006-2007 models, here’s what you need.

Part2006-2007 Honda CBR1000RR spec
OilThis is consistent between Fireblades. Honda recommends Pro Honda GN4 4-stroke oil, or another oil that is SAE 10W-30, JASO T 903 standard MA or better. Motul 300v is a popular choice for sportbikes. Engine oil drain bolt torque is 30 Nm (22 lb-ft)
Oil filterA high-quality drop-in replacement for all Fireblades is the HF204RC, which you can use a wrench to torque down (26 Nm/19 lb-ft)
Spark plugSame for all Fireblades — NGK IMR9E-9HES or the Denso VUH27ES.
Air filter (varies)For the 2004-2016 CBR1000RR use K&N HA-1004 for a good drop-in replacement.
Front brake pads (varies)Many Fireblade riders switch to EBC or Galfer double hardened brake pads. For the 2004-2016 models (apart from SP), use these codes:
* EBC: FA390HH
* Galfer: FD326G1370
Rear brake pads
These are the same for all CBR1000RR Fireblades for 2006+ (it changed in 2006 and stays same until today).
* EBC: FA436HH
* Galfer: FD363G1371
Brake fluidMost brands are OK but Honda recommends Honda DOT 4 brake fluid.
GreaseUse a Valvoline lithium soap-based grease for external pivot points.
Chain careUse either Motul chain paste or a full Motul chain care kit for regular chain maintenance.

About the 2006-2007 Honda CBR1000RR

Sharing DNA with Honda’s MotoGP-winning RC211V, the awesome CBR1000RR raised its Superbike status to new performance levels in 2006 thanks to extensive changes that sharpened handling, boosted horsepower and reduced weight.

Like the MotoGP racer on which it’s based, the CBR1000RR design uses an innovative long-swingarm, weight-forward configuration that allowed the machine to get more power to the ground sooner when exiting corners — thereby creating a well-balanced package that simultaneously wielded the kind of awe-inspiring power that only a modern-day liter-bike could generate.

The 1000RR’s credentials seem never-ending:

  • Gravity die-cast aluminum frame
  • Compact high-output engine with Dual Sequential Fuel Injection (DSFI)
  • Unit Pro-LinkTM rear suspension
  • Radial-mount front brakes
  • Honda Electronic Steering Damper (HESD).

The 2006 CBR1000RR offers advancements in every parameter, with more power, better handling and less weight, thanks to the following changes:

  • New intake and exhaust porting
  • Higher compression ratio
  • Revised cam timing
  • More intake valve lift
  • Double springs for the intake valves
  • Higher redline
  • Larger rear sprocket
  • New exhaust system
  • New chassis geometry
  • Larger 320mm front brake discs
  • Revised front suspension
  • Revised rear suspension with new linkage ratios
  • New lighter swingarm

The 2007 CBR1000RR was the same as the 2006.
