To finish things off, we replaced the stock bodywork with a set of Hotbodies race bodywork and a Hotbodies windscreen. The $805 race bodywork, fashioned after the HRC kit used by the Ten Kate World Superbike team, includes an upper, lower, tailsection and tank cover. Elsewhere in this issue, we have a very positive review of a set of Hotbodies bodywork for a Kawasaki ZX-6R (see SR Tested), but the CBR bodywork required a full day of work to fit and prepare for painting and even a couple of additional brackets to be made. A call to the company revealed that the HRC kit for the 1000 will definitely need trimming to fit any exhaust, as the WSB team requires an ultra-tight fit for maximum cooling effect. As well, the company upgraded its process last year to include a better primer base for painting; our set was made previously to the upgrade. We also installed a $70 Hotbodies dual radius windscreen, that is one-inch taller than stock with a more pointed shape for better aerodynamics.
