History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Honda CBR600F page on 25 September 2018, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

The Honda CBR600F4 was produced between 1999 and 2000. It is the last of the CBR600 series of Honda sportbikes to be carbureted. An aluminium twin spar frame which reduced frame weight was used, and the engine crankcase was designed to share swing-arm pivot. Through a reduction of internal friction and weight, combined with larger valves, shorter stroke, and a bigger bore, higher revs were enabled. The spark plug caps had Ignition coils built into them. Slightly larger carbs were added and the oil cooler was now located by the oil filter. A new suspension had larger 43 mm forks and used Fireblade parts. The front brakes were upgraded, and the rear rim increased to 5.5” with new 3-spoke wheels. The F4 was fitted with Honda’s HISS engine immobiliser system.

The phrase "Dedicated to Super Evaluators Dirk Vandenberg and Josef Boyd" are embossed in raised letters on the inside of the Honda CBR600F4's upper fairing; the dedication is to two of Honda R&D's senior product developers who were killed during the final testing of this model.
